Episode Date
Diet Scores Ranked: The Vegan Effect | Dr. Hana Kahleova
46:12

Diet scores have been ranked and researchers have calculated how much healthier your own diet could be by going vegan!

 

The scores reveal what happened when more than 200 people stopped eating meat and dairy and began eating an exclusively plant-based diet that is low in fat. While we have known for decades that eating more fruits and vegetables is healthy, this study shows precisely how big of an impact it can have.

 

The study also reveals the number one predictor for weight loss, and it’s not going to the gym! There is one type of food that prevented people from shedding unwanted pounds more than any other.

 

Lead researcher Dr. Hana Kahleova joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to talk about the findings and how they can be used to improve your health.

 

Dr. Vanita Rahman then returns to The Exam Room to share details on her new program for fighting hot flashes and how much better you might feel within a matter of weeks just by changing your diet.

 

Plus, Chuck reports on an alarming study for milk lovers that shows a connection between poor health and dairy consumption among heart disease patients.

Improve Hormone Health the Natural Way | Dr. Gemma Newman
48:11

Learn how to manage and improve your hormone health in the healthiest way possible.

 

Dr. Gemma Newman shares how women can revitalize and nourish their hormones by eating a cleaner diet and living a healthier lifestyle. The "Plant Power Doctor" also discusses how women can become more aware of the signs and symptoms that their hormonal health could be in danger.

 

She estimates that as many as 80% of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are unaware they have the disease and can be baffled by their symptoms. Likewise, many women with endometriosis are going far too long without receiving a diagnosis.

 

Dr. Newman discusses how a plant-based diet can help alleviate many of the painful symptoms and bring hormones back under control to help women age healthfully for years to come.

 

She joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room Podcast.

 

Chuck also has details on world-first genetic research that examines a link between low levels of vitamin D and high levels of c-reactive proteins that are associated with inflammation and chronic illness.

01:20:14

It’s a double episode! Learn five nutrition tips that can help treat and prevent arthritis, cancer, heart disease, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and other chronic conditions when Dr. Hana Kahleova joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room Podcast.

 

Did you know that half of all adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with at least one chronic disease and one in four have two or more? Millions are dying, but it doesn't have to be that way.

 

Plus, Chuck chats with a funny guy who seriously doesn’t eat any meat.

 

Myq Kaplan joins the show to share a few humorous stories from his 20 years performing as a vegan comedian and why he began incorporating jokes about his diet into shows. For example, he masterfully points out to the “meat and potato” crowd that they’re already halfway to eating a vegan diet.

 

Plus, he shares how he eats clean on the road when vegan cuisine is hard to find. You’ll also learn what other comedians are vegan when Myq rattles off an impressive list of friends and other performers.

 

In addition to having his own specials on Comedy Central, Netflix, and Amazon Prime, Myq has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. His album Vegan Mind Meld quickly became one of iTune’s top 10 comedy album of the year.

Personalized Diets: Could Sausage Be Healthier Than Broccoli For Some? | Dr. Will Bulsiewicz Live Q&A
46:11

Could sausage ever be as healthy as broccoli? This idea has caught fire through the concept of personalized nutrition. It’s the idea that your body runs better on some foods and not as well on others. In theory, this means that junk food could be healthier than fruits and vegetables in some cases.

 

But is that too good to be true?

 

Dr. Will Bulsiewicz joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explore what personalized nutrition actually is, what it could mean for the future of medicine, and whether sausage could actually be as coveted as broccoli for your health.

 

Plus, they answer viewer questions from The Doctor’s Mailbag

 

- Universally healthy foods

- Eating for your blood type

- Microbiome and mental health

 

Also, you’ll discover why a traditional Chinese diet may be just what the doctor ordered to lower blood pressure when Chuck reports on a promising study on hypertension.

 

Dr. Bulsiewicz is a two-time New York Times bestselling author of Fiber Fueled and The Fiber Fueled Cookbook.

Cancer Survivor's Keys to Living a Long and Healthy Life | Caryn Dugan
57:54

A cancer survivor shares her keys to living a long and healthy life after receiving a life-changing diagnosis.

 

Only weeks after losing her father to cancer, Caryn Dugan received more devastating news. She too had a form of the same disease that just left an enormous void in her life.

 

It was the final cruel twist in a horrific year, but it would ultimately serve as a pivotal moment for her future. Caryn went from being a self-described “human garbage disposal” to a pillar of health. As she battled cancer, she wanted to understand why this was happening to her family.

 

She began studying more about the habits that can cause cancer and reached one undeniable conclusion. Even though genetics play a role, things did not have to be like this.

 

Years of unhealthy eating, including relying on what many considered to be healthy “diet foods,” likely contributed to her disease. As she learned more, she decided that no other branches would fall from the family tree before their time. The buck would stop with her.

 

Years later Caryn remains cancer free and has opened the nation’s first plant-based culinary education center to pass on to others what she has learned. She is teaching thousands what it takes to live long, healthy, and cancer free lives at the Center for Plant Based Living in St. Louis.

Almost Dead at 61, Climbing Mountains at 62. It’s Never Too Late | Dr. Akil Taher
58:23

One year after life-saving heart surgery at the age of 61, Dr. Akil Taher was climbing the highest mountains in the world.

 

The leading cause of death in America nearly had another victim. His heart stopped, he had stents inserted to open severely clogged arteries, and ultimately needed open heart bypass surgery. Finally, after ignoring the warning signs for years, he proclaimed that he wanted to not just live, but “really live.”

 

The transformation that came next was nothing short of remarkable. It was a complete diet and lifestyle overhaul that eradicated more than 60 years of unhealthy habits.

 

Dr. Taher shares his inspirational story with “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room Podcast.

 

He is proof that it is never too late for you to change.

Reversing Multiple Sclerosis: A Doctor’s Victory Over Disease
41:39

In 1995, Dr. Saray Stancic was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Within a matter of years she was already reliant on a cane to walk and doctors told her that eventually she would be confined to a wheelchair. Frustrated by her deteriorating health and lack of options, she began doing research on her own. What she discovered was so much more than she could ever have hoped for.

 

By changing her diet and reintroducing exercise, her health returned in dramatic fashion. Today, she no longer needs a cane and is walking freely without assistance. She no longer requires medication and is looking forward a future without a wheelchair!

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™, she joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share what she learned and how it revolutionized her health! Dr. Stancic also reveals how the same diet and lifestyle changes that she made could eliminate up to 80% of all chronic disease cases, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer!

Vegan Diet Improves Painful Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain | Ali DiGiacomo on The Exam Room Podcast
53:00

She tried everything to improve crippling pain from rheumatoid arthritis. Nothing worked nearly as well as eating a vegan diet.

 

Ali DiGiacomo began suffering from RA at a young age. It ruined a once promising swimming career. Doctors told her that her joints resembled those of someone 50 years older than she was.  As the condition grew worse she could barely do much physically let alone compete in the pool.

 

For the next 10 years she suffered in silence and kept her diagnosis a secret despite having surgery and being put on medication. The invisible illness was all too embarrassing, and she didn’t know how her friends would react.

 

By the age of 21 Ali’s condition deteriorated to a point where she could no longer walk without using a cane or even a wheelchair.

 

Then her fortunes would change when she began exploring whether she could improve her condition by changing her diet. After a friend suggested she try eating a plant-based diet her inflammation levels plummeted.

 

Today, she is social media star and advocate for RA who shares her journey in hopes of inspiring others. And the one-time swimmer who was forced to abandon the pool due to intense pain is now working as a personal trainer!

 

Plus, Chuck is joined by Dr. Hana Kahleova who studied 44 RA sufferers who changed their diet for 16 weeks. Dr. Kahleova shares the promising results of the study. Spoiler: Most saw their symptoms significantly improve like Ali!

Healthiest Foods for the Environment and You Too | Dr. Joanne Kong
50:09

Pollution doesn’t just come from smog rising from the cars that are clogging up the road. Nor is it exclusively mountains of trash piled high with unnecessary plastic waste. Instead, the agricultural, forestry, and other resources it took to make your dinner possible account for as much as 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Renowned author and international speaker Dr. Joanne Kong joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss the best diet to slow climate change and improve the health of the environment as well as ourselves.

 

The environmental impact of vegan and meat-inclusive diets is examined head-to-head. Everything from carbon footprints to water and land resources are compared, and the difference between the two diets is immense!

 

This episode of The Exam Room™ is sponsored by Marty Rosenthal.

What If Food Was Prescribed Before Pills? | Dr. Monica Aggarwal on The Exam Room Podcast
39:37

One out of four people will die from heart disease in the U.S. But what would happen if they were referred to a nutritionist instead of just being given a pill prescription? Cardiologists think countless lives could be saved. More than half of doctors believe a healthy diet is as good or better than any medication they could prescribe.

 

Dr. Monica Aggarwal has researched the effect that a healthier diet can have on preventing and reversing heart disease. She joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss her findings and how many lives could be saved with a food-first approach.

 

As it stands now, cardiologists send fewer than one in 10 patients to a nutritionist.

Eat Meat to Live Longer? | Dr. Matthew Nagra Live Q&A
45:29

Eating meat could help you live longer. That’s according to research, but the results appear to have a major flaw.

 

Dr. Matthew Nagra joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room LIVE to talk about the findings and how he believes researchers missed the mark by such a wide margin.

Dr. Nagra also answers questions sent into The Doctor's Mailbag.

 

- Is chicken a healthier option?

- Are lean meats harmful to heart health?

- Can chocolate increase cholesterol?

- Does sugar increase cholesterol?

- Many more!

45:44
A television reporter became incredibly sick in 2015. For years she struggled to understand what was causing her symptoms. Finally, doctors diagnosed Myriam Masihy with Sjogren’s syndrome, but her troubles were far from over.

 

The medication she began taking caused her to gain weight and lose her hair, two things that can spell the end of a career in TV, even for a multiple Emmy Award winner. Myriam thought that there had to be a better way.

 

Desperate and in one of the lowest points of her life, Myriam turned to a vegan diet and was stunned by the results! Her symptoms would soon disappear, and she regained her health.

 

She joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share her incredible story.

 

Myriam was so inspired by her recovery that she produced a documentary about health and nutrition for the Hispanic community, Comida Como Cura. Since then she’s heard from countless viewers who have improved their own health!

Protein 101 with Dr. T. Colin Campbell: Which Type Is Best For You?
28:40

Plant and animal proteins are compared head-to-head by Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

 

The author of The China Study rates the quality of the two protein sources for your health when he joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room Podcast. He also explains why the concern about not being able to obtain complete proteins without meat is considerably overblown.

 

Dr. Campbell then explores protein isolates found in processed foods and why they can be a “mixed bag” for your health. Plus, he discusses why he ranks proper nutrition ahead of exercise and all other mitigating factors as the most critical step to prevent cancer.

 

Plus, Chuck reports on a new study linking red and processed meat with increasing rates of hypertension.

Vegetables Aren’t Healthy? Responding to Misleading Research | Dr. Kim Williams
44:24

A study finds that vegetables aren’t as healthy as you’d think. Could we have been wrong about leafy greens, bright red peppers, purple cabbage, and delicious yellow corn this whole time? Could greasy hamburgers and fat steaks be the key to long life with a healthy heart?

 

Umm, no and no.

 

Renowned cardiologist Dr. Kim Williams points out a major flaw in the research that had many parents wondering whether they’d been doing their kids wrong by not letting them leave the table until they finished their Brussels sprouts.

 

He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room to discuss the major point missed by researchers and push back against the notion that vegetables aren’t necessary heart healthy. Also, he reveals which vegetables may offer the biggest benefit to your heart!

 

Dr. Williams also discusses other new research on rising rates of high blood pressure during the pandemic and the best diet to treat hypertension. Plus, discover the surprisingly little amount of alcohol that is heart healthy.

Carleigh Bodrug Went Vegan, Transformed Her Health, and Is Inspiring Millions
38:00

True story. Before she had millions of followers, Carleigh Bodrug struggled with her health. Her digestive issues had grown troublesome that she was taking prescription laxatives for her entire childhood.

 

The problems then began multiplying as the years rolled by. By the time Carleigh was in her early 20’s she was chronically fatigued and wore her poor health on her sleeve as her skin issues were now on display for the world to see.

 

She wasn’t the only member of her family facing challenges. Doctors had previously diagnosed her father with stage 2 colon cancer. He survived, but Carleigh remember being stunned in 2015 when red and processed meat were classified as carcinogenic. The same foods that her family had been eating years were also the reason they were sick?!

 

An emotional mixture of anger, confusion, and motivation led Carleigh to seek a healthier path. And when she discovered a whole-food plant-based diet, suddenly all of her health challenges disappeared. The answer had been right in front of her the whole time and it wasn’t in a pill bottle. It was in her kitchen.

 

She joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room Podcast™ to share her story in detail and how her life-changing epiphany planted the seed for a booming career as an authority on simple, tasty and healthy plant-based recipes! Her PlantYou Cookbook became a No. 1 best seller before it was even released!

 

Plus, Chuck details new research on the protective benefits a vegetarian diet offers against dementia. The study included more than 5,700 adults and shows promising results!

Cheese, I Can't Quit You! ... Or Can I? | Dr. Neal Barnard on The Exam Room
51:07
Why is cheese so ultra-addictive that it is called "dairy crack"?!

 

Cheese addiction expert Dr. Neal Barnard explains the opioid-like compounds found in cheese that cause intense cravings that make people eat it day after day, 365 days a year.

 

He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room Live with tips for breaking the addiction and answer other health questions sent in by viewers to the Doctor's Mailbag.

 

- Are dairy-free cheeses addictive?

- Do all fats raise cholesterol?

- Is extra-virgin olive oil healthier than regular olive oil?

- Is almond milk healthier than soy milk?

- Plus, many others.

 

Also, Chuck has details on a study showing that our earliest ancestors were not major meat eaters. The findings shatter the myth that human evolution, including brain development, was kicked into high gear as a result of meat being added to the diet many thousands of years ago.

 

This episode of The Exam Room™ Podcast is sponsored by The Gregory J. Reiter Memorial Fund, which supports organizations like the Physicians Committee that carry on Greg’s passion and love for animals through rescue efforts, veganism, and wildlife conservation.

My Weight Loss Journey Is Not a Gym Journey: Stevan Mirkovich's Transformation
49:56

Stevan Mirkovich didn't lose weight by going to the gym. It was the food that helped him lose nearly 100 pounds and got the former athlete back on the road to health!

 

He joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to share his inspiring story and the diet he chose to slim down. The same diet has not only helped him keep the weight off for years, but laid the foundation for a thriving career helping thousands of people as co-owner of Planted. The company is behind the largest plant-based events in Canada!

 

None of this would have happened had it not been for a fluke knee injury that ultimately led him to change his life.

False "Facts" About a Vegan Diet | Dr. Matthew Nagra
44:28

Clear up false food facts on the season finale of The Exam Room!

 

There is a dizzying amount of misinformation spread about plant-based diets on a daily basis. You need meat to survive. There is no way that you will get enough nutrients. Dairy is required in order to have strong bones. You won’t live as long if you just eat plants.

 

When you first consider going vegan it can be nearly impossible to know what to believe and who to trust. However, the confusion ends today because the truth stops here.

 

Dr. Matthew Nagra joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to talk about five of the biggest “false facts” regarding what happens to your health by taking meat and dairy off the menu. Dr. Nagra is quickly becoming one of the most trusted nutrition advocates in his home country of Canada and worldwide thanks to a strong internet following.

 

He presents compelling and scientifically-backed arguments on the following claims:

 

- You can’t get all the nutrients you need by eating a plant-based diet.

- Vegans are more likely to have brittle and broken bones.

- Plant sources of protein are inferior to animal proteins.

- It is hard to get enough iron without eating meat.

- Soy is unhealthy and causes a man’s chest to become unsightly.

 

To that last point, wait until you hear the unexpected food that Dr. Nagra says is one of the biggest reasons men grow breast tissue.

A Doctor's Private Battle with Endometriosis and Journey Back to Health
01:06:41

While Dr. Asha Subramanian was helping her patients get well, she was quietly suffering through her own health struggles. She battled endometriosis from an early age, and the debilitating pain only grew worse with time. As a young doctor, the disease had grown so bad that she was told if she didn't have children in the near future she would risk never being able to get pregnant.

 

The issues would continue for years as traditional therapies only provided scant relief. But she discovered that she could greatly improve her condition through food and began combining a plant-based diet with modern medicine. Finally, she found relief and was thrilled to become a proud parent of a healthy daughter.

 

Dr. Subramanian opens up about her struggle for the first time in hopes of helping others facing the same challenges. She shares her secrets for defeating endometriosis with diet!

 

Chuck also revisits a conversation with Dr. Neal Barnard in an Exam Room Rewind where Dr. Barnard delves into the story of an endometriosis patient who was in the middle of a hysterectomy when doctors declared she had been miraculously cured. Was it an actual miracle or was it the change she made to her diet that caused the disease to vanish? Dr. Barnard also details how a diet that is heavy on meat and dairy, but light on fruits and vegetables, can cause hormonal issues and fuel endometriosis.

'They’re Trying to Kill Us’: Inside the Next Big Vegan Documentary
43:20

An inside look at They’re Trying to Kill Us from the creators of the groundbreaking documentary.

 

John Lewis and Keegan Kuhn join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss the making of the film and the systemic issues that are driving health inequality in the United States.

 

Why are people of color more likely to die from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer if genetics aren’t the reason? Through interviews with celebrities in hip-hop, medicine, sports, entertainment, and politics, John and Keegan discovered the answer. It is perhaps the most deadly threat to society that mainstream media doesn't want to talk about.

 

PCRM will receive 50% of proceeds from the film through Nov. 17, 2021.

Eating Healthy at Restaurants Is Hard, Not Impossible
56:04

Here’s a scary fact. Only 1 out of every 1,000 meals served in restaurants qualifies as having “ideal” nutrition. Even scarier? Portion sizes at fast-food restaurants are three times larger than they were in 1950!

 

Could it be that our obsession with eating out is actually making us sick and die younger? It may sound extreme, but given all of the fat, salt, sugar, and sodium being served, it is fair to wonder whether what you order is taking years off of your life.

 

Dr. Vanita Rahman and Matthew Rees, editor of the Food and Health Facts newsletter and senior fellow at the Dartmouth Tuck School of Business, have the facts to back up that argument. They make the case that restaurants are playing an enormous role in the obesity epidemic when they join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll. From an abundance of calories to a lack of fiber, they have the true effect of restaurant food covered from all angles!

 

Plus, Chuck is joined by restaurateur Gregg Rozeboom, who is bucking the trend of enormous burgers and buckets of fries in favor of healthier options. Gregg is the founder of the plant-based oil-free restaurant chain Fruitive. He shares his philosophy that delicious food does not have to be detrimental to your health. Fruitive is proof that when it comes to healthy food, if you serve it, they will come.

Hooked! Why We CRAVE Junk Food | Dr. Mickey Witte
45:56

Cravings can be so frustrating! Anyone who has ever tried to stop eating chocolate, chips, cheese, or junk food will tell you that these foods are almost impossible to give up!

 

Dr. Mickey Witte, a neuroscientist specializing in food addiction, joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to explain the war between your brain and your belly. She details how the hedonic pleasure centers of your brain react the same way to high-fat food as to drugs or even sex.

 

The brain likes those foods, loves them, and wants more of them! And fast-food restaurants and major food companies know this. Their business model is built entirely on calculating the perfect blend of fat, salt, and sugar in all of their recipes to get you hooked. Which is why losing weight can be so hard!

 

This is part two of a special two-part conversation with Dr. Witte.

Your Weight and Your Risk of Breast Cancer | Dr. Kristi Funk

Doctors Said She Was Dying. Plants Saved Her Life.
49:23

Doctors told Kate McGoey-Smith she had only a few years to live. She was suffering from a rare heart condition and required an oxygen tank just to breathe. As if that weren’t enough, Kate also lost her vision and had diabetes.

 

But that diagnosis was made well over 10 years ago. Since then, Kate has reclaimed her health! She no longer needs supplemental oxygen, has reversed her diabetes, and has regained the ability to see!

 

Her recovery isn't the result of a new miracle drug. Rather, everything began turning around when she changed the way she was eating.

 

She explains to “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll that her new diet has given her her life back!

New Health Benefits of Vegan Diets In 2021 | Dr. Andrew Freeman
01:16:59

The research keeps pouring in from dozens of new studies showing that a vegan diet can supercharge your health!

 

Dr. Robert Freeman explores a mountain of data from the past year that links a diet free of meat and dairy to lower rates of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.  He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share the exciting findings, including a 37,000-person study about red meat and its potential for creating health challenges.

 

Among the other studies discussed:

 

- Vegan vs. keto diets

- Olive oil

- Diet soda

- Cinnamon and blood sugar levels

 

Plus, Chuck celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Food for Life program when he is joined by Jean Myers. Jean was ahead of the curve when it came to healthy eating. She adopted a vegetarian diet in 1984 and became vegan in 1997, long before the plant-based diet boom that would come nearly two decades later.

 

She became a pioneer for what would become an award-winning nutrition education and cooking class that teaches an innovative approach to improving diet-related chronic diseases.

 

Jean shares her motivation for going vegan, her experiences as an instructor, and the powerful story of one student whose health transformation was so dramatic that she will remember it for the rest of her life!

Plant-Based Diet and COVID-19: What Science Shows | Dr. Neal Barnard
33:48

A plant-based diet can help prevent severe cases of COVID-19 and may reduce the risk of becoming infected altogether, according to two studies.

 

Dr. Neal Barnard explores research analyzing the diets of healthcare workers in six countries. The findings show that eating less meat and dairy and more fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of severe infection by as much as 73%. However, a low-carb keto diet appears to significantly increase the likelihood of becoming severely ill.

 

Dr. Barnard and “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll also discuss a second study of nearly 600,000 people that not only confirms the protection against severe symptoms, but also reveals that a plant-based diet can provide protection from becoming infected at all.

 

Data on vaccine efficiency and safety, the delta variant, breakthrough cases, and infection trends is also discussed.

The Real Deal with Soy | Dr. Neal Barnard Menopause Series Pt. 2

The truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth about soy!

 

Dr. Neal Barnard gives the whole story about the controversial bean in part 2 of the special menopause relief series. He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to talk about the truth and lies about soy. Many believe that eating soy will do anything from causing cancer to making men grow breasts.

Dr. Barnard also answers your questions about soy when Chuck opens the Doctor’s Mailbag.

 

Plus, they continue their look at the groundbreaking new study on the powerful effect it can have on reducing hot flashes.

Milky White Lies: Fact Checking Dairy | Dr. Neal Barnard and Susan Levin, RD
49:01

We are led to believe that dairy is the ultimate source for calcium, vitamin D and protein. It is essential for strong bones and without it you’d be as fragile as glass. Your health depends so much on dairy that there is a food group devoted exclusively to it.

 

But have we been misled?

 

“The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard and dietitian Susan Levin to review the major health claims being touted about milk! They hop on the National Dairy Council website and go over them one by one. All claims are put under the microscope! Everything from bone health to diabetes, heart disease, inflammation, high blood pressure, immune function, gut health, and protein will get a close look.

 

They have the research to separate fact from milky white lies.

 

Plus, Chuck reports on a study that finds vegan diets are optimal for growth in children.

Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: The Sherra Aguirre Story
50:51

Sherra Aguirre is well into her senior years, but feels as fit and healthy as someone in their 30’s!

 

She shares her journey back to health when she joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™.  Years of eating fast food every day were beginning to catch up with her. Her energy dropped while her blood pressure went sky high. Sherra’s heart health was suffering just like many of her family members before her.

 

But after Sherra changed her eating habits and kicked fast food to the curb, she was able to reverse her symptoms of heart disease, including an enlarged heart!

 

Today, the entrepreneur turned author is inspiring others struggling with their health with her book Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease.

 

Plus, Chuck reports on a study on how effective a plant-based diet can be in limiting severe symptoms of COVID-19 while those eating a high protein, low carbohydrate diet are at far greater risk.

Big Beef Claims: Fact Checking with Dr. Neal Barnard and Lee Crosby, RD, LD
41:50

Fact check nutrition claims on the official beef website with Dr. Neal Barnard and dietitian Lee Crosby as they join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™!

 

The website claims that beef is part of a heart healthy diet. What evidence is there to support the claim? What does independent research show?

 

The website also claims that beef is an essential food for babies. Do they need it to grow up big and strong or is red meat laying the foundation for heart disease later in life? Dr. Barnard and Lee have a mountain of research all leading to an undeniable conclusion.

 

Additionally, the website states that eating beef can improve cholesterol levels. How could such a claim be made when there is decades of independent research pointing in the opposite direction? The group dissects those statements to see whether they hold any merit!

 

And of course protein, protein, protein!

Fat, Fruit, Sugar and Diabetes | Cyrus Khambatta PhD
59:16

It is time to rethink the effect fruit and fat have on diabetes. Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, is living with type 1 diabetes and practices what he preaches — eating a healthy diet filled with the proper carbs and an abundance of apples, oranges, bananas, mangos and other fruit all containing natural sugar!

 

He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explain why his fruit-heavy way of eating won’t raise blood sugar, but the standard diet that is loaded with saturated fat can wreak havoc on insulin resistance.

 

Cyrus also discusses:

 

- White potatoes vs. sweet potatoes and blood sugar

- How much faster blood sugar rises from drinking a smoothie than eating fruit

- How to buck genetics and reduce the risk of diabetes when it runs in the family

- How eating a plant-based diet can improve insulin resistance in people who have had diabetes for many years

 

Cyrus is co-founder of Mastering Diabetes.

Can a person be both healthy and overweight? “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Yami Cazorla-Lancaster to discuss the Healthy At Every Size movement.

 

The concept weighs whether too much emphasis is put on a person’s weight and too little on the overall picture. As a person who lost 280 pounds, Chuck shares his opinion about that theory and how it may be perceived by those still struggling with their weight.

 

Dr. Yami also addresses the misconception that children can eat whatever they want without penalty. She explains the steep price that can be paid later in life for the high-fat and high-calorie foods eaten during our formative years. The seeds for heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other chronic illnesses are planted early in life even if they don’t blossom until adulthood.

Best and Worst Foods for Alzheimer’s Disease | Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai
57:56

Eating fast food can be traumatic for the brain. In turn, the toxicity can increase the chance that you may develop Alzheimer’s disease.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™, Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explain why foods loaded with fat, sugar and salt can send brain cells into a frenzy! These are the very foods that are staples of the standard American diet!

 

You will also learn the enormous number of calories the brain burns every day and how much better it can function by eating a healthy diet that contains plenty of whole fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Eating these foods every day can also dramatically reduce the odds that you will become one of the millions of Americans who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  

 

Plus, Team Sherzai, authors of The 30-Day Alzheimer’s Solution, reveals the brain power boosting foods you need to bring home to your kitchen!

Too Much Fat, Too Little Nutrition | Dr. Andrew Freeman
39:19

It is possible to eat 4,000 or 5,000 or even 10,000 calories a day and still be malnourished!

 

While the diet of an average American is filled with fat and calories it is sadly lacking the essential vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to function healthfully. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, there are four times as many people who are obese or overweight and malnourished compared to those who are underweight and battling the same malnourishment.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Andrew Freeman to discuss why a large waist size is too easily mistaken for overnutrition rather than the nutrient desert it is.

 

"If left untreated, malnutrition leads to serious health conditions including diabetes, hypertension and heart disease," Dr. Freeman says.

 

Dr. Freeman’s research is then put to the test when Chuck calculates the nutrient values of his previous high fat 10,000-calorie diet. The results are shocking!

Major Problems With the New Dietary Guidelines
53:44

There are major problems with the new Dietary Guidelines! The issues are so immense that many doctors and dietitians are calling for them to be redrafted completely! Why? Because they continue to push dairy and meat despite their known links to health problems!

Susan also reveals the healthier guidelines developed by the Physicians Committee.

 

Also discussed:

 

- The racial bias of the Dietary Guidelines that puts the Black community at risk.

 

- The USDA's decision to ignore scientific recommendations for reducing alcohol and sugar consumption.

 

- First-time recommendations for children under 2 years old.

Body on Fire: Preventing Inflammation and Illness
52:11

Discover what it means to have inflammation in your body and unlock the secrets of a diet that can help to extinguish the unhealthy fire that is burning inside of you!

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Dr. Monica Aggarwal and Dr. Jyothi Rao join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss inflammation and how it can trigger chronic diseases that take years off of your life.

 

The authors of “Body On Fire” will make you rethink what it means to have a Big Mac attack. It’s not just a craving for two artery-clogging all-beef patties, not so special sauce, lettuce, high-fat cheese, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun. A Big Mac attack is actually a highly inflammatory all-out assault on your health that fans the flames of disease.

 

The standard American diet is filled with foods just like the Big Mac that serve as the gasoline being poured on an unhealthy fire!

 

So what can you do to bring the blaze under control? Doctors Aggarwal and Rao share the anti-inflammatory foods that can help get you back on track, including specific spices! You will also learn how quality sleep and exercise can help to control inflammation and improve your health!

 

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard talks with Chuck about the link between COVID-19 and inflammation. Can a person reduce their risk for COVID by shifting toward a more anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle?

The Food-Addicted Mind With Dotsie Bausch and Alexandra Paul
01:08:48

From near tragedy to resounding triumph. Go inside the mind of three food addicts with very different stories, but whose life-and-death battles were also very much similar in many ways.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Olympic cyclist Dotsie Bausch will recall her experience with anorexia, Baywatch star Alexandra Paul details her battle with bulimia, and “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll describes the compulsion that drove him to eat 10,000 calories per day. The differences between the eating disorders seem as great as the weight that separated them. However, as the trio open up about their struggles it becomes clear that while their food addictions manifested in polarizing ways the mental battle is very much a shared struggle.

 

Plus, you will become inspired by their stories of recovery as Dotsie and Alexandra, who host the Switch4Good podcast, and Chuck share their paths to overcoming their disorders and the role that a plant-based diet plays in sustaining their healthy mindset. This uplifting conversation continues a discussion that originally began when Chuck was interviewed by them on their show.

 

Also on this episode, Dr. Neal Barnard delves into the science of food and mental health. You will learn why we are drawn to “comfort food” and the genetic predisposition that causes some people to become addicted to it.
