Discovery: The Autobiography of Vilhjalmur Stefansson

Explorer of the last unknown lands in North America prophet of the transpolar air and Arctic submarine routes, Vilhjalmur Stefansson was the inspiration of northern explorers for 40 years. In this book, completed just before his death in August 1962, he recalls his whole adventurous and exciting life, and the great achievements that made him a top authority on the Arctic and its people.

(I ordered and read the physical book and really liked it. Similar to his other carnivore books but about his whole life)

Facultative Carnivore
Facultative Carnivore describes the concept of animals that are technically omnivores but who thrive off of all meat diets. Humans may just be facultative carnivores - who need no plant products for long-term nutrition.
The Inuit lived for as long as 10,000 years in the far north of Canada, Alaska, and Greenland and likely come from Mongolian Bering-Strait travelers. They ate an all-meat diet of seal, whale, caribou, musk ox, fish, birds, and eggs. Their nutritional transition to civilized plant foods spelled their health demise.
Carnivore Diet
The carnivore diet involves eating only animal products such as meat, fish, dairy, eggs, marrow, meat broths, organs. There are little to no plants in the diet.
Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet involves eating high fat, low carbs, and moderate protein. To be in ketosis, one must eat less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day.
