Armand Tanny

Hey so I was reading up on Armand Tanny, Mr. USA and raw meat eater. I know that he drank raw milk but besides that how close was he to eating a raw paleo diet? Also he lived till 90, does anyone know if he continued his raw meat diet even after his bodybuilding career ended?

Just found this on him
"In 1948 he shut off his stove and ate just about everything raw from then on—tuna, beef, liver, lobster, oysters, clams, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables. Armand recalls wading out into the surf along the Santa Monica Pier and using his feet to kick up 6- to 7-inch Pismo clams, smashing them together to get at the pink and white flesh. Armand also took brewer’s yeast, desiccated liver, yogurt, black strap molasses and wheat germ oil, all recommendations of Gaylord Hauser, a nutritional guru of the era. Hauser also recommended fish liver oil, but Tanny felt he was getting plenty from all the raw fish he was consuming."

He was a big fan of Weston A. Price and "nutrition and physical degeneration" served as his bible.
