712: Dr. Shawn Baker- Carniovore Diet Advocate

In this episode, Sal, Adam & Justin speak with Dr. Shawn Baker, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, multi-sport world record who has eaten only meat for over a year.

No veggies or fiber? Is that even healthy? Dr. Baker goes into detail why he has had so much success on this diet and makes a very compelling argument for giving it a try.

You can find Dr. Baker @Shawnbaker1967 on Instagram, Sbakermd  on Twitter, World Carnivore Tribe on Facebook and at Meatheals.com and carnivoretrainingsystems.com
