On today’s episode we have Dr. Shawn Baker, the founder of Carnivore Training Systems. We’ll be talking to Dr. Baker about all things meat and why he believes in a diet comprised of 100-percent red meat. Now, our listeners are probably already open to or enjoying a high fat, high meat diet, but Dr. Baker definitely takes this to the next level, as you will hear. Shawn Baker started out as a medical student before dropping out to play rugby in New Zealand. He worked in the Air Force and then went back to medical school. Through this time and beyond, he was always taking part in highly competitive sports and pushing his body to its limits, and through many experiments and observations he has arrived at what he calls the carnivore diet. You might be asking yourself: What about fiber? What about greens? What about berries? But all will be revealed and we at PMR think it is worth sticking around and hearing what he has to say. Tune in to hear it all!

“In truth, there is not a lot of data on this, I’m trying to change that, I’m trying to collect data. It’s semi-informal right now but we are gathering a lot.” — Dr. Shawn Baker [0:12:19.1]

“I don’t think there’s a big problem with it quite honestly. You know, I think it’s more social acceptance, more than anything. I think nutritionally, it’s fine.” — Dr. Shawn Baker [0:27:15.1]
