This achievement is now unlockable but the actual amount of days is glitchy. It unlocked for me on day 47, not 42 as expected. The tracking seems to go up one percent every 4 days, but the achievement will still unlock closer to 40 than 400 days. It's unconfirmed whether this needs to be done on a fresh savefile after the update that "fixed" the achievement

To avoid eating plants means that you can only eat worms, spoiled fish (not recommended), fresh meat (also not recommended), cooked meat or jerky. If teas are allowed is unconfirmed (due to the wonky tracking) but I'd imagine it is since it's needed to cure diseases and is not strictly "eating plants".

It's unconfirmed whether the 40 days need to be in a row, or rather just 40 days in total across the playthrough. They do all need to be on the same playthrough though.

Use the environment to your advantage. Don't waste traps or arrows if snakes or bears can kill the prey for you. Constructing a camp fire for cooking is relatively cheap if you need it up until you can buy the stove upgrade on your raft.

Since jerky doesn't spoil, make as much of it as you can carry. And remember that rain is a free source of clean water, so stock up on lots of bottles and just refill them when it rains.

Staying off plants is pretty tricky until you learn the ropes, so feel free to leave it until either late in the playthrough or until you're comfortable with the game mechanics.
