Does anyone know the exact specifications of the diet i'm getting quite confused, I know cliff has helped other users before. Not how much muscle meat to limit quantities of fruit, why baking soda? etc

I think there's quite some confusion when it comes to Peat. The 'rules' are not more than 'ideas' or maybe even 'recommendations'. The basic idea is to eat to raise the metabolic rate. That's not very difficult, given the fact that there's an easy at-home test for that (eg. measuring pulse & temperature). A higher metabolism comes with a lot of benefits, and a higher requirement for nutrients.
Probably the one thing that's important in Peat is experimenting :D By following 'a diet' like paleo, without questioning its foundation, you're unlikely to be very successful.
Restricting PUFA might be the one thing to be serious about, but severe restriction shouldn't even be necessary :O. You eat whatever you want.

i have tried this diet and i would not recommend it. although i can digest raw milk, it is still neolithic and not good for our digestive tracts. it dampens everything and combining lots of sugar with a damp environment is just asking for candida overgrowth. i would, however, recommend incorporating lots of fresh fruits into your diet, as well as starches like potatoes, popcorn, and rice as these are ray peat approved.
