Along with being the author of the 2019 book The Carnivore Diet, Shawn Baker is a doctor and an accomplished athlete. He earned his medical degree from Texas Tech Health Science University in 2001, completed his orthopaedic surgical residency at the University of Texas in 2006, and served as chief of orthopaedics at various bases during his stint in the U.S. Air Force. Athletically, he’s played professional rugby, won strongman competitions, set records as a Highland Games participant, and most recently, he became an indoor rowing world champion. Shawn has gained notoriety as a leading proponent of the carnivore diet—where participants get nutrition from animal-sourced foods and severely limit or eliminate all plants from their diet.
