According to the Instagram post by Bloomberg Business, Joe Loney, who is a 35-year-old Briton believes that he could have the same jacked and shredded physique just by eating raw animal organs, and working out while living the ancestral lifestyle just like the Liver King had preached. Since the start of 2021, he began eating steak in an extremely rare way, almost like it was not cooked at all, and he took a break every two or three months.

In December, the Liver King made a YouTube video where he admitted to taking steroids worth $11,000 every month. This was a big surprise for the bodybuilding community. Loney, who was shocked by this, decided to take legal action against the bodybuilder. He filed a lawsuit for $25 million, accusing Johnson of using misleading advertising for his Ancestral Supplements business. The company was making nearly $100 million in sales each year.
