Dr. Ken Berry struggled with health issues and weight and medical misinformation. He’s one of the biggest doctors in the carnivore diet scene and one of the most knowledgeable. Also his last name is Berry so that’s funny. Mikhaila and Ken discussed how being a carnivore is beneficial to people, particularly sick people. After Dr. Berry shares his thoughts on the role of cholesterol in the carnivore diet, and other common concerns, Mikhaila encourages Dr. Berry to go all in and try the Lion Diet. If you have been meaning to follow a meat-based diet, listen to Dr. Berry here.

Dr. Ken Berry is a Fellow in the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is a Board Certified Family Physician who has been practicing Family Medicine for over a decade in Tennessee. He is also the author of the book “Lies My Doctor Told Me” with a mission to help people reclaim their health.
