Mikhaila Peterson is Jordan Peterson's daughter, and although she has not been as controversial as her famous father, she is also a successful internet personality advocating for a carnivorous diet.


Jordan Peterson is not the only internet personality in his family. His daughter, Mikhaila Peterson, is a renowned podcaster, CEO, and lifestyle blogger with a large social media following.

Her childhood was unusual as she suffered from a severe autoimmune disorder, mental illness, and multiple other conditions. Mikhaila only improved by eating specific foods, which she eventually turned into the Lion Diet. Here's everything you need to know about Jordan Peterson's daughter.

Born in Ontario, Canada, on January 4, 1992, Mikhaila was named after former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev. Her childhood also had Russian ties – her home had Soviet posters on the walls, and her family often talked about Russian politics and history.

Sadly, she struggled with bipolar type two, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, idiopathic hypersomnia, rashes, and a severe autoimmune disorder. At 17, she had her hip and ankle replaced.

Mikhaila's health issues and the lack of help mainstream medicine provided pushed her to research alternative ways to heal. She got better by changing her diet and eliminating "nearly everything."

In December 2017, Jordan Peterson's daughter started having a paleo diet. Within a month, her arthritis went into remission. She then embarked on a meat-only diet and named it the Lion Diet. Mikhaila only eats ruminant meat, salt, and water, and she feels better than ever.


The "Mikhaila Peterson Podcast" and "Opposing Views" host also confessed that her relationship with God was "very sudden." She talked to a Christian man about four situations that bothered her, and he told her she needed God.

When she returned home, she prayed, and those four issues in her life cleared up the following day. Mikhaila also woke up with a sense of calm she had never felt before, so she began digging deeper into her faith.



Mikhaila's religious views are shocking because her father has famously contended with faith for years. Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and YouTube personality known for sharing harsh thoughts on sensitive topics.

Peterson has been involved in many controversies throughout the years. In May 2022, he tweeted that plus-size model Yumi Nu – who graced the Sports Illustrated cover – was "not beautiful." Still, Mikhaila regrets nothing about growing up with Peterson. She explained:

"I learned a lot about psychology. I know a lot about personality. I didn't know it was weird until I was like 24, or until he got famous, and then I realized it was weird."


Peterson and Mikhaila have a beautiful father-and-daughter relationship, and she has supported him through thin and thick. In February 2020, when Peterson was hospitalized in a private hospital in Russia, Mikhaila kept giving updates on his health.

She explained that her dad developed an adverse reaction to benzodiazepine, a medicine he had been taking for years to treat his anxiety. He also developed physical dependence, so quitting it was not easy.


The situation was so bad that he "nearly died several times." Mikhaila and her family took Peterson to Russia for treatment, where he got pneumonia in both lungs and had to be put into a medically-induced coma for eight days. In February 2020, he was better but still recovering.

Mikhaila has also defended her father when he gets involved in controversies. In late June 2022, Peterson got a Twitter strike after violating the platform's rules against hateful conduct for commenting on pride and Elliot Page. Mikhaila shared a screenshot of the strike and pointed out that Twitter was not a "free speech platform."



Controversies aside, Jordan Peterson's daughter is a successful social media personality with over 500,000 Instagram followers, 200,000 Twitter followers, and 600,000 YouTube subscribers.

The "Mikhaila Peterson Podcast" is her most famous project. She interviews multiple experts about health, cultural phenomena, politics, and other topics most people don't address publicly. In June, she even interviewed her dad.

Mikhaila, the CEO of her The Lion Diet brand, also performed a speech at a TEDx event in Roseville, California, about the benefits of a carnivorous diet. However, the TED platform refused to post her speech on its YouTube channel.



Her carnivorous diet has helped Peterson fight his health conditions and her Christian husband, Jordan Fuller, get in shape and in good spirits.

Mikhaila and Fuller tied the knot in June 2022. After describing Mikhaila as his best friend, Fuller said his days had been "inexorably better" since he met her.

Jordan Peterson's daughter and her husband are raising Elizabeth Scarlett, Mikhaila's child from her marriage to Russian businessman Andrey Korikov.

Although their marriage didn't work out – things were supposedly "rocky" by the time Elizabeth was born – they are amicably co-parenting. Way to go!
