A zero carb advocate, who follows all-meat diet, recently courted controversy following the results of his blood test.

Shawn Baker – a former doctor who lost his medical licence – has followed his ‘carnivorous’ diet for around a year and a half.

Baker has said he has ‘exhibited very good health and function’ since ditching all non-meat foods.

In this video, Plant Based News Founder Klaus Mitchell looks at the conflict. After looking at the blood test results, he says: “No thriving population in human history has lived on a low carb diet.”
