Las Vegas man, 30, lives on ‘Neanderthal-inspired diet’ that includes raw lamb, rabbit and octopus

A Las Vegas man revealed he switched to a raw meat diet only after a trip to acid — and claimed it made him stronger and smarter.

Flight attendant Rusty McIntyre, from Las Vegas, has always preferred his steaks on the very rare side, and he used to try small pieces of raw steak before cooking.

But eight years ago he decided to take the plunge and eat an uncooked Bison Rib steak, which made him feel “energized.”

McIntyre, 30, hasn’t looked back since and now follows a Neanderthal-inspired diet of raw cuts of meat, fish and even exotic animals like octopus.

He claims to eat between 3,000 and 4,000 calories a day – including two pounds of raw meat – and regularly posts videos of him tearing up his meals on social media.

“I may have been coming off an acid ride, but it was one of the most energizing experiences of my life,” Mr. McIntyre said of his first experience.

He said, “When I eat an ample amount of any form of raw meat, I really feel an increased amount of energy and a feeling of focus.

“This can be a mental thing, but for me personally, when I cut out my raw diet, I feel more lazy than when I eat it.”

Mr. McIntyre is fed a large piece of raw meat, and does not want to cook it in case it loses its flavor and nutrients.

Mr. McIntyre is fed a large piece of raw meat, and does not want to cook it in case it loses its flavor and nutrients.

Mr. McIntyre said he switched to his raw meat diet after becoming concerned that he was losing vital nutrients during the cooking process.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says meat should be cooked until it kills germs that can make you sick.

Cooking meat breaks down the hard fibers, which means that it is easier to chew and digest.

It also leads to better nutrient absorption, and a 2011 Harvard study found that cooked meat provides more energy than raw meat.

Mr. McIntyre stresses that he is not a doctor or a dietitian, and he gets his knowledge from his research and experience.

He tries to buy grass-fed meat, rather than raw steaks from supermarkets like Walmart, to steer clear of lower-quality meat.

He’s been abused online for his carnivorous diet, with comments like “you idiot” and “enjoy your parasites”, but they don’t bother him and he’s happy with his choice.

Some family and friends agree with the trolls, calling his diet “brutal,” “wild,” and “ultra-hardcore.”

But his family generally supports him, as his mother regularly eats raw meat.

And undercooked meat isn’t Mr. McIntyre’s only nutritional anomaly. He also drinks raw, unpasteurized milk.

Pasteurization is the process that kills potentially dangerous bacteria in milk, and the sale of raw milk is illegal in many US states.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prohibits the interstate sale or distribution of raw milk at the federal level, but in Nevada led by Mr. McEntire, sales of raw milk are legal.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, raw milk and products made from it can pose “severe health risks, including death.”

However, Mr. McIntyre believes there are serious health benefits to eating and drinking it raw.

He believes it’s a “healthier alternative” to pasteurized milk, and said it’s only been banned in some states because “some people’s bodies can’t really handle.”

He said, “Raw milk is the only kind I ever drink, and I’ve never had any form of illness from it.”

It has been said that the presence of omega and DHA in raw fish and meat is what made humans evolve from ape and gain greater mental capacity.

Eating raw meat is a common practice in some cultures, such as the Inuit communities.

The meat is prepared by burying it underground to ferment for several months – a process called egong.

If not properly prepared, it can cause illness or even death due to food poisoning and bacterial poisoning.

How eating raw meat can make you sick

Food poisoning is an illness caused by eating food contaminated with bacteria, such as salmonella or Escherichia coli, or a virus, such as norovirus.

Raw meat and unpasteurized milk are more likely to be contaminated.

Symptoms usually begin within two days of eating.

These may include:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • Diarrhea that may contain blood or mucus
  • Stomach ache
  • energy loss
  • muscle pain

Most people do not need treatment and get better within a few days.

They should make sure to rest and drink plenty of fluids to combat dehydration.

They should contact their doctor if their symptoms become severe or do not improve after several days.

Doctors should be aware if the elderly, pregnant women, children, or those with an underlying health condition or weakened immune system have been affected.

Food may become contaminated if:

  • undercooked
  • Leave for a long time at room temperature
  • Not reheating enough
  • Ate after her “best” date
  • Touching contaminated hands
  • Do not store below 5°C
