Shawn Stevenson Tells Dr. Gundry: Stop Counting Calories!


These days, it seems like more people than ever are confused about what to eat…

Should you go low-carb? Is a high-fat keto diet actually healthy? How much protein do you REALLY need to eat?

To help me answer these questions and cut through the noise, I’ve brought on a heavy-hitter.

Shawn Stevenson is a nutritional expert, host of the Model Health Show, and the author of a brand new book called Eat Smarter.

On this episode, Shawn and I are going to discuss why fat ISN’T your enemy, the TRUTH about calories, and how much protein you actually NEED to eat for optimal health.

If you care about improving nutrition and optimizing your health, then this episode is an absolute must-listen.
