Facts/Trivia

  • As a teenager, he became a vegetarian and later became a raw vegan for nearly 10 years. According to Daniel,

    I discovered veganism in the early days of the internet, and the moral issues surrounding it were emotionally disturbing to me.”

  • After Daniel read a book written by a dentist, he became convinced that animal foods were essential to a healthy human diet. He gave up veganism. However, he was already a speaker at vegan events, which later became a problem for him because he would go on stage and speak about issues related to veganism. This quickly got him kicked out of the vegan community.
  • After giving up vegetarianism, he began foraging and was mentored by botanist Arthur Haines, who runs the primitive-focused Delta Natural History Institute in Canton, Maine. He eventually started his own “ReWild Yourself Podcast” and began interviewing experts in the field while exploring the hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Later, after he realized he wanted to do it seriously, he learned how to hunt.
