About Wes Shoemaker
WES SHOEMAKER is the creator and personality behind the popular YouTube channel Highfalutin’ Low Carb. Wes brings viewers into his test kitchen where, together, they search for delicious low-carb and keto recipes. His Southern style, comical flair, kitchen technique, and knowledge of keto principles have created a community of more than 500,000 (and growing) loyal followers who tune in to his content across YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.
Wes is not a trained chef or nutritionist. A lover of food who was battling several nagging health issues, he took to YouTube in 2017 as a way to share his success with a low-carb, high-fat diet. He soon discovered that others liked to follow along on the journey, celebrating his successes and acknowledging his challenges. He turned his passion for cooking, entertaining, and content creation into a full-time job, leaving the corporate world behind.
A native Southerner, Wes currently resides in San Diego, California with his husband of 25 years. When not behind the computer screen or in front of the camera, you can find him walking his two dogs, cooking, traveling, or gathering with small groups of friends and family.
