40. Dr. Shawn Baker on Meat, Fiat Foods, and Bitcoin
This week we host the poster child for carbohydrate deficiency, carnivore elite athlete, orthopedic surgeon, author, and bitcoiner Dr. Shawn Baker! We discuss Shawn’s personal experience as an athlete, and his professional experience as a surgeon, on the carnivore diet, the rationale for eating meat-only, the health benefits, and why dietary interventions are far more effective than public health interventions. We also ask Shawn’s views on sourcing meat, the environmental impact of meat production, fasting, coffee, and wine.
