Dr. Anthony Chaffee - Do Humans Thrive Most on an All-Meat Diet?

Updated: Sep 28, 2022

Dr. Anthony Chaffee - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Dr Chaffee is an American medical doctor and Neurosurgical resident who, over a span of 20+ years, has researched the optimal nutrition for human performance and health. It is his assertion that most of the so-called chronic diseases we treat as doctors are caused by the food we eat, or don't eat, and can be reversed with dietary changes to a species specific diet.

He began University at the age of 15 studying Molecular & Cellular Biology with a Minor in Chemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle, which culminated in an MD from the Royal College of Surgeons.

Currently in Australia, he specializes in Neurosurgery and does private consultations in functional medicine while thriving on a carnivore diet
