This influencer follows a unique diet he calls the “ancestral lifestyle,” which involves consuming lots of raw organs and meat. Dieticians have criticized his unusual diet, saying it could be risky.

However, the fitness influencer recently had a terrible eye injury and doctors are worried that he might lose his eye due to an injury he sustained. Along with sustaining a brutal eye injury, he was also criticized for his unusual ‘cold turkey’ narrative.

Liver King shared a video while sitting in a sunny garden, discussing his eye situation. He mentioned, “All the doctors say, I’m gonna lose the eye,” and then added, “Good, I have another eye.” Moreover, he captioned “This is another opportunity for Liver King to overcome mental and physical obstacles… to honor the fighting spirit of our ancestors… and to become the highest version of myself.” 

Therefore, to prevent further harm, the doctor suggested using an eye patch. He is showing incredible strength afterward. Many people commented on the post, asking him why he was wearing a black eye patch, and some also sent their best wishes.

Liver King asking for love and support from viewers

Liver King believed in fighting back and not giving up on this. He needs all the strength; that’s why he asked for help and people’s love and support. He’s completely ready for anything that comes his way. “All I know is this: Whatever the outcome, the good, or bad, it’s all good. Because life is what we make of it. It’s a grand adventure. So, fill it with love, fill it with adventure, fill it with purpose,” he said in the video

Liver King, a well-known online figure promoting a “primal living” lifestyle, misled his millions of followers on different social media platforms by falsely claiming that his muscular physique resulted solely from his unconventional diet and intense exercise routine. The 45-year-old had previously refuted allegations of using steroids. In an interview with Mark Bell’s Power Project Podcast, he stated firmly, “I don’t touch the stuff. I’ve never done the stuff. I’m not going to do the stuff.” 

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, he came clean, saying, “I lied, and I misled a lot of people… Yes, I’ve done steroids, and yes, I am on steroids, monitored and managed by a trained hormone clinician.” Liver King confessed to taking 120mg of testosterone per week and apologized for deceiving his followers by previously claiming to be “all-natural.”

In his latest video titled “Liver King Lies || More Bull Than Last Time,” Doucette points out that not using steroids for an extended period would result in a significant loss of muscle mass and energy. Liver King’s claim of going “cold turkey for 220 days” without any external help or medical support, according to Doucette, doesn’t make sense. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments.
