Liver King Loses an Eye, Responds to Mark Bell’s Power Project, Son Attempts His Most Difficult Barbarian To Date

Current weight:

Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

  • Liver King loses eye… good. Me have other eye! Realize vision overrated.
  • Liver King email leaks… good. Me take action, get real, get doctor, get better, live better. 
  • Liver King stuck in storm… good! Me primal take shower. 

Good, bad, indifferent… everything good. Life is a party! That’s why it’s called “life!”

After addressing the internet police (Penguinz0 and Coach Greg), Liver Queen and I say “fuck it,” cancel all commitments the following week, send Liver boys packing back to LK Ranch, and extend our stay at LK Beach House… it would be our heaven on earth, and it didn’t disappoint — even paid for it with an eye (worth every penny)! As per standard operating procedure, here’s my weekly confessional/update… my four roles:


When you know your "why" in the world, winning is a forgone conclusion...all ya gotta do is sort the how and the what — that's the easy part. Define your highest leverage roles (no more than 4)… assign a profound WHY to each, and take massive fucking action (fire, fire, fire, aim!) to execute. Here are mine…

Dominant Man…It’s my biological imperative, and it amplifies my impact in my other roles. This week, I advance Never Apologize, address Mark Bell (Power Project), and share a fuck load more… for the “Primals wanna know.” 

Dominant Dad…  To affirm my boys with the depth of challenge, worth and potential, so that one day, they come to believe in themselves as self-made kings. This week, I summarize the journey of Stryker’s Barbarian and enjoy a fest in honor of him.

Dominant Husband…  My complementary opposite (the balance to my blade)… my lioness… my soul mate… she makes me whole and gives me my edge. This week, I detail Liver Queen’s role as she nurtures and nourishes.

Dominant CEO.. Because 4,000/day kill themselves, and there’s something we can goddam do about it. This week I highlight precisely how we’re casting the Liver King-sized net, getting the message out by leveraging the mega influencers talking trash, and evolve (aim) a path forward to create value. 

Liver King Loses an Eye

Three days after the accident, a retinal specialist makes a house call, tells me there’s too much hemorrhaging to diagnose the issue, and that he’ll be back in a few days. When he returns, he tells me that the corrective surgery is too complex for him to perform, surgery is required immediately (as in tomorrow), and good luck!

Next day I spent 2 hours doing diagnostic work-up… the renowned retinal specialist came in to address me, and here’s what he said…

“Your eye is destroyed… it's too fucked to even attempt to fix (right now)... IF we proceed, it will require multiple surgeries... you will get cataracts within 2 years, lose central vision in 5, ongoing corrective surgeries... despite best efforts, LK, you still gonna lose vision in right eye — inevitable. Oh… you’ve got brain damage, too."

To which I reply... "Good!" Tell me the bad news, doc. One-eyed Liver King inbound. Everything in life is a blessing... this be no different 🙏. Liver King tells all about eye injury, how it happened, and how i move forward in forthcoming confessionals.

Mark Bell’s Power Project and Others Make More Accusations about Liver King…

On Sept 1st, Liver King makes YouTube video to address the internet police, and set record straight. Turned out to be popular and many others made a reaction video.

“what do you guys think about him saying he never wanted to be liver King… yeah I don't I don't think he would ever done it if he didn't want to do it”
— Mark Bell

Here's my response...

“It’s called responsibility… to do the thing, especially when you don’t want to. It’s a man’s biological imperative to put gun to own head, burn the boats, and take massive fucking action… to fight, provide and protect (especially when he doesn’t “want” to).”
— Liver King


I am Liver King... a savage barbarian beast, double-fisting battle axes... running up the mountain to no end. I stand 5’7” at the horizon, and this week, I descend with 190 lbs of force and flesh upon our earth — there's a reason the giraffe is not the King of the jungle.

  • Dec: 202
  • Jan: 196
  • Feb: 192
  • Mar: 190
  • Apr: 187
  • May: 186
  • June: 186
  • July: 182
  • Aug 10th, 182 (last day natty since Jan 2nd)
  • Aug:  28th, 2023: 186 lbs 
  • Sept 16th, 2023: 190 lbs 


The Nine Ancestral Tenets are the forces that shaped our ancestors to become the baddest mammalian predators that ever lived… they still work today so that we can be healthy, happy, strong, and robust.

  • Sleep… subprimal — just not making time for it
  • Eat… primal AF — easy! I did a 5-day, water-only fast after the accident.
  • Move… primal AF — all workouts, the push-up diet and Barbarians… DESTROYED (bf eye)! But, after eye injury, all docs say the same thing… what remains attached is like wet tissue paper, and so any jerking movements will continue to tear the optic anatomy that remains. In other words, take it fucking easy (LK thinking, not possible). 
  • Shield… subprimal — lost an eye, concussed, hospitalized
  • Connect… primal
  • Cold.. subprimal — concerned about reprofussion injury
  • Sun… primal AF
  • Fight.. primal AF
  • Bond… primal AF
  • Fun… primal AF — make it a party… that’s why it’s called “life”

Want more Liver King stats, or if young "Primals wanna know," MOOOAR, post in the comments section‍.


  • Heart Rate Variability (HRV): down, down, down… wtf!
  • Resting Heart Rate (RHR): up, up, up… 
  • Perceived Exertion: eye injury painful AF
  • Grip Strength: didn’t test
  • Glucose/Blood Sugar: high, see last update
  • Ketones: didn’t test, but also fasted, didn’t eat carbs, and took shots of KETO IQ for concussion


* No measurements this week except weight

  • Weight: 190 lbs
  • Body Fat: shredded and vascular AF
  • Roman Chest Plate: chiseled
  • Arms: dangerously strong pummeling power
  • Waist: six-pack centerpiece, (maintenance on the Liver King ab implants) and six-pack supplement: murder medley). Lost over 4 inches since Jan 2nd. 
  • Legs: lost the most size from waist and legs since Jan 2nd. Started additional lower body sessions, but now have to halt.


* No maxes attempt this week just max fucking effort

  • Strict press: DNA… previous PR was 255… missed 215 in June. Fuck me!
  • Deadlift: DNA
  • Squat: DNA
  • Bench: DNA
  • Six Pack Centerpiece: DNA Liver King's 30-push ups every 30-minute diet and DNA  supplemental w/ Murder Medlies on Wed and Sat... DNA heavy unilateral KB carries, yolk carries, and Barbarians, which develop the fundamental building blocks for a strong AF and shredded core... gotta maintain those Liver King ab implants because “life just ain’t worthing Primals, without a pump and a centerpiece six pack.” Let’s see what happens!!



From Sept 4th to Sept 9th, Liver King skips calories, rests, sleeps, suns, recovers from a fucked injury and concussion. Afterward, it’s business as usual but with two twists… 

  1. Carnivore/Keto (skipping most carbs), and…
  2. LK Chefs are plating eyeballs for me as of late.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner got the usual treatment: always getting down on the raw liver, and raw bone marrow... and of course, a full pound of fresh, raw bull testicles/day (since Jan 2nd… yes, still onnit!). As foretasted, a shit ton of electrolytes and or fresh blood and colostrum when out at LK Ranch. See more on Liver King diet.

Even traveling, LK Chefs make dope AF, delicious AF meals for me and the tribe here at the LK Ranch and LK Beach hosue. Currently writing this right bf cold plunging with my Liver Queen and headed out for the rare restaurant trip… Stryker “The Barbarian” wants it for his celebratory Birthday Barbarian… who am I to deny. Stoked to share in the reckless abandon and just fucking connect with family.

  • Breakfast: raw, shell-on, fertilized eggs from Liver King Ranch... Liver Queen's fermented cream, and whatever else LK Chef Lionel puts out for me in addition to the usual stack: Liver King Supplements... Liver King Whole Feast Protein, Liver King Bar, and of course, KING
  • Lunch: a bone-in piece of red meat, black coffee, and my usual staples... Whole Feast Protein, Liver King Bar, and KING. I won’t write this every week but I’ll say it again for everyone in the back… raw Liver, raw Testicles and raw Bone Marrow remain on the menu with all meals. 
  • Dinner: With an emphasis on Carnivore/Keto more crispy duck, and the usual: a delicious pound of cooked carnivore carcass (ribeyes, bone-in strips, bone-in ribs, beef cheeks, tongue, cheese beast burgers made with liver, heart, pancreas, spleen, kidney, and a little bit of muscle meat), testicle ceviche. Skipped the carbs (primal rice, sweet potatoes, Paul Bunyan's maple syrup, and sorghum syrup), and once again, my primal AF staples... Whole Feast Protein, Liver King Bar, and KING.
  • Recents: recent additions as of late have been eyeballs, and still planning on running Sorghum syrup as a whole food source of carbs (restarting this next week) and running DHT experiments (for MOOOAR!). Anything and everything food-related that’s a 5-alpha agonist is being selected for. NOTE: DHT is what real alpha Primals are after… It's inaccurately villainized as a propagator of hair loss, and prostate problems, but this topic is incredibly nuanced. Bottom line is DHT is King when it comes to androgens. Liver King DHT articles and videos forthcoming as part of the 126 Ways series.
  • Notes: I stated that I don't want to have to eat a pound of testicles every four hours, every day... before tech (TRT), I had to have the testicles every four fucking hours... now I don't (have to), but still continuing for a few reasons… 1. so that I change as few of variables as possible, and 2. I'd like to see how the holistic package of raw androgens and rich 5-alpha reductase (from the testicles) affect results, especially DHT and Estrogen.


  • 4 eyeballs/day
  • SKIPPED: a cigar or four in the afternoons, sometimes paired with a Primal Scotch (always earned)
  • SKIPPED: 30-push ups every 30 minutes
  • SKIPPED: 300-knuckle push-ups bf dinner (under the sun, connected to the earth)
  • SKIPPED: 1000+ band pull-aparts and/or several hundred face pulls (lmao… more to share)


Since January 2nd, I've been an upgraded, more dominant version of myself... With 220 days clocked of Primal “natty” savagery, it comes to an end. LK 2.0, is officially back on a steroid and a low dose of therapeutic HGH (turns out fixing my sleep corrected most of the root cause related to chronically low IGF-1) that’s managed and maintained by a trained hormone clinician.

Since I just started this, it’s too soon to comment, but if Primals are interested, post what ya wanna know in the comment section, and I’ll update in the subsequent confessionals. Don’t hold back… be sure to drop comments, questions, love, and hate… I want it all.

BREAKING NEWS: My Primal AF doctor told me that my YT video was not entirely accurate when I stated that I had not tried a single peptide or anything synthetic… apparently, the HCG and Clomiphene cycle from Jan 2nd to March 20th, constitute both — she stated that HCG is a peptide and Clomiphene is synthetic.  


Stryker turned 17 yesterday. The greatest gift I can give to my boys is to bleed them through the living hell I call “The Barbarian” — a modern-day rite of passage and initiation into manhood. 

Happy Birthday Stryker… I couldn’t be more proud of you!

He fucking dominated. He imposed his force of will, crushed himself, and transformed himself into a more complete beast. 


Wife loved me, nurtured me, and nourished me every way possible, and I needed all of it these past few weeks. We struggled together, fight together, forever remain together. To my Queen, I love you… I cherish you… I see you.


Selpt on my potential these past weeks, but using momentum from the critics to gain attention and cast the Ancestral net far and wide. 

Bf the injury, worked hard as fucking hell to ready the new LK email series… “The Way of The Barbartian — 126 Ways to be a fucking man… to always stack the deck, dominate, and win… at life” 

I'm proud AF to say I led... myself, my boys, my Queen, and my professional teams, connecting and affirming my people/tribe with our WHY in the world, and with such worth and potential that they see it in themselves and express a higher form. All while CEO’ing my Tip of the Spear Companies, it’s called “strive mother fucker, strive!”
