Vilhjalmur Stefansson and His All-Meat Diet Experiment

Sophia Le

Vilhjalmur Stefansson (1879 – 1962) was an Arctic explorer, anthropologist, lecturer, and proli c writer.

Stefansson was rst forced to live on the all-meat diet of the Inuit to survive when a ship carrying his supplies failed to arrive on one of the expeditions.

After eleven years living with the Eskimos, Stefansson’s health did not suffer but improved on this diet, he realized what he previously learned about nutrition and dietetics was all wrong and became a vocal advocate of this diet.

In this post, we will brie y look at Stefansson’s background, his Arctic expeditions and the time he spent with the Eskimos, and the famous Bellevue Hospital experiment where he and a friend spent a year under supervision eating nothing but meat.
