Today we've got a super fun episode with William Shewfelt, best known for his starring role as Brody the Red Power Ranger on Netflix and Nickelodeon's Power Rangers: Ninja Steel! We've got him on the podcast, because William is also a fitness expert who specializes in fat loss and building muscle using a ketogenic diet! After years of training and experimenting with dieting, and experiencing skin issues, gut problems, and never achieving a lean, muscular physique—William finally stumbled upon the ketogenic diet…and after trying a carnivorous ketogenic diet with intermittent fasting, was able to achieve a ripped physique.! 

William recently released the Carnivore Shredding E-Book which details his approach to fat loss using intermittent fasting, a carnivorous diet, and training recommendations to achieve and maintain a lean physique year-round—without calorie counting and deprivation.
