Shawn Baker MD (@SBakerMD and Insta:shawnbaker1967) is a board certified orthopedic surgeon, multi-sport world record holding Masters 50+ Athlete, and Zero-Carber (he basically just eats red meat). After much demand from his following and you guys, Shawn was kind enough to give me 2-hours to dig deep on exercise, health, nutrition, etc. We answer your questions and more in this epic and detailed discussion. For a more extensive biography and list of achievements, please see Part 1. I recommend you listen to Part 1 first for more context.

In this episode, we cover:

  • The definition of health
  • The downsides of prolonged sitting
  • We dig into diet:
    • Grain-fed vs grass-fed meat
    • How to eat on the road
    • How long it takes to adapt to ZC
    • Shawn’s drinks of choice
    • Eating a ZC to reduce decision fatigue, and how to pick foods in the supermarket without driving yourself mad looking for the perfect food whilst trying to stay within budget.
    • How to deal with social situations.
    • His protein intake and thoughts on general protein consumption recommendations
  • N=1, experimentation
  • Thoughts on electromagnetic fields, cold showers, body wash and other environmental stressors
