The ATP Project 256 – Dissecting the Carnivore Diet

In today’s episode of the ATP Project, Matt, Steve, Jeff, and Elizma Break down and dissect the controversial ‘Carnivore Diet’! A topic that has been in high demand for the show, it was interesting to go into the obvious questions most ask around it but also the thoughts it left us with that perhaps need revisiting and further investigation… we hope you enjoy the episode!
