He Had A Stroke 30 Years Ago, Then He Tried This | Dr. Shawn Baker & Dave

Dec 27, 2022

Dave is a 47-year-old Australian. When he was 17 he suffered a sub-arachnoid haemorrhage and stroke in his sleep. He's a computer programmer and public speaking trainer, and he has lived in Japan for the last 16 years. In early June he was overweight and feeling unhealthy. His doctor said he was likely pre-diabetic and needed to give up alcohol. Dave decided to go to a diet he knew well: low-carb/keto. After a few weeks on keto he transitioned to carnivore and he has never felt better. The carnivore has not only improved his overall health but helped him with post-stroke therapy (30 years after the stroke). Find Dave at
