Man eating RAW MEAT diet swears by it – but experts are worried [PICS]
For more than three years, 39-year-old Weston Rowe has been eating raw meat, including beef, liver, chicken and other animal organs. Despite warnings about the consequences to his health, including having salmonella, Rowe, who is from Nebraska in the United States (US) says his raw meat diet has been working for him and helped raise his energy levels.
“I am in better health both physically and mentally, better than I’ve ever been in my life,” Rowe said to Caters News Agency.
Weston Rowe loves his raw meat
Weston Rowe says he no longer eats processed foods and spends about $140 a week on his special diet (that’s more than R2,100). He says all his products are sourced from local dairy and pouy farms.
Further elaborating on his odd meal plan, Rowe says he eats three times a day, adding that he rarely even snacks, but when he does, he’ll have three raw eggs and a piece of fruit (which is one of the only meat-free foods that he eats)… yum!
“I would say at this time I eat 99 percent farm-fresh raw meat and have never once been sick or unwell from my diet. The way I see it, it is a fair amount to pay to eat the best and most nutritious food in the world and actually equates to a similar amount I used to spend on junk food,” he said.
Rowe told the news outlet that he started eating raw meat when his energy levels started to drop and was experiencing brain fogginess. One concern over his raw meat diet: chicken, which has often been linked to salmonella. However Rowe says he has eated plenty of it and has never fallen sick.
“It is very controversial, but I believe that raw meat has a natural balance of bacteria on it which works symbiotically with our bodies and serves a purpose,” he said.
