Why Are We Overweight? It's More Than Calories | Dr. Mickey Witte
36:03

Becoming overweight is not as simple as eating more calories than you burn. It’s far more than just eating too much fat. In fact, obesity is a complex assortment of issues that few truly understand.

 

Neuroscientist Dr. Mickey Witte joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to unpack the many reasons that millions struggle with their weight.

 

- Why the body fights to hold on to fat.

- Set Point Theory and the belief that the body programs itself to maintain a certain weight.

- The pleasure and reward centers activated in the brain by food.

 

Dr. Witte is an adjunct professor at the University of Miami specializing in obesity science.

 

Also, Chuck reports on a study showing foods with flavonoids can help lower high blood pressure.

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
51:32

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. But Dr. Barnard has decades worth of data showing not only is that not true, but soy can actually lower the risk of cancer and certainly will not leave men with anything they’ll want to get off their chest.

 

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.

 

Chuck also speaks with Anne Marie Pedrick who shares her own story about stopping relentless hot flashes by adopting a plant-based diet that includes soy. Like so many others who participated in the 12-week study, Anne Marie’s turnaround is unbelievable!

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.

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.

Overweight and Healthy? Examining the “Healthy at Every Size” Movement
01:06:06

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.

Meanwhile Tobias' eyes were opened to obesity epidemic when he came to America as an exchange student from Germany. Never had he seen so much high fat fast food and large portions! He watched first hand as his host family struggled with their weight because of their poor eating habits.

 

Both knew they had to use their experiences to help others. So, they teamed up to create The Truth About Weight Loss Summit which is bringing together 40 of the world's top researchers, doctors and dietitians to help thousands struggling with obesity.

 

This interview has science, facts, and inspiration to get you started on a healthier future!

Best Diet for Weight Loss: Vegan or Mediterranean Diet?
53:49

Will you lose more weight on a vegan diet or the Mediterranean diet? "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard to discuss the results of a study that tested the diets head-to-head to see which is best for slimming down and getting healthy!

 

The study also examines which diet reigns supreme for improving blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes.

 

Also, find out whether the brain causes you to crave fatty foods when you’re on a low-fat diet.

 

Plus, Dr. Barnard will raise your health IQ and answer listener questions when Chuck opens The Doctor’s Mailbag.

 

  • Will you automatically gain weight once you stop eating a low-carb diet like keto?
  • How long does it take for cholesterol to improve on a plant-based diet?
  • Is it better to eat an olive rather than olive oil?
  • What is the best way to strengthen bones and joints?
  • And many more!

 

The pair also look at new evidence showing COVID-19 is causing diabetes in people who have no history of the disease.

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!

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.

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.

What Will Your Legacy Be?
55:30

How would you like to be remembered years from now? Your legacy can be to leave a massive impact on the world and make it a healthier place for all of its inhabitants.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Alysoun Mahoney who honored her late husband by carrying on the work they began together as advocates for a plant-based lifestyle and animal welfare. Following his sudden passing, Alysoun established the Gregory J. Reiter Memorial Fund.

 

It is thanks in no small part to the fund that countless animals are being saved, major shifts have been made on the federal level toward healthier practices, and tens of thousands of people have learned the benefits of adopting a vegan diet.

 

So what would you like your legacy to be? What work would you like to continue for years to come? You will learn how you can make a huge difference without millions of dollars. Your legacy — a healthy legacy — can be solidified with far less and do far more good than you can possibly imagine.

 

Chuck is also joined by Kim Intino, Director of Legacy Giving for the Physicians Committee, who walks us through how to simplify the process of cementing your legacy so that you can support the tireless efforts of the Physicians Committee well into the future.

 

Get ready to change the world.

Healthy at Last: The Eric Adams Story
01:00:32

Eric Adams woke up one morning and could not see. Fearful that he was going blind, he rushed to his doctor’s office where he was diagnosed with diabetes. He was told to accept that he would suffer from poor vision for the rest of his life. But Eric, a former New York City police officer, decided to open an investigation into his health to find a better way. He searched for evidence, combed through clues, and finally cracked the case. It was food that put him in this position and it was food that would get him out of it.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room, Eric Adams joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share how he became healthy at last.

 

After recovering his own health, he began helping others, including his mother who was in her 80’s when she began eating a plant-based diet. Like her son, the change made a dramatic improvement to her health as well! Eric is also the president of the borough of Brooklyn in New York and was instrumental in bringing plant-based meals to children by creating the Meatless Mondays program in the public school system.

 

He is now sharing his story nationwide with the release of his book Healthy at Last: A Plant-Based Approach to Preventing and Reversing Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses.

 

Also on the show, Dr. Neal Barnard discusses the top 5 co-morbidities associated with COVID-19 and how changes in diet and lifestyle can help improve and even reverse them!

Weight Loss Science and Success: Richard Lost 150 Pounds!
01:21:53

Richard Hubbard once weighed 350 pounds and was gaining weight at an alarming rate. He would often order three Big Macs at a time to satisfy an insatiable appetite for fast food.

 

Worried that his health would soon fail, Richard’s doctor prescribed medication for high blood pressure. Not wanting to trade pills for another trip through the drive-thru, he challenged his doctor to allow him to hold off on taking the prescription. His doctor never thought he would succeed, but today Richard is more than 150 pounds lighter and healthier than ever!

 

Richard joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™ to share his remarkable journey. The pair also compare their experiences of what it was like to be morbidly obese. From the off-handed remarks from others that resulted in low self-esteem to their “last supper” with massive quantities of fast food, they share what it is truly like for those struggling to get their weight and health under control. More importantly, Richard also shares what it takes to finally make a health breakthrough and keep the weight off for good!

 

Plus, Dr. Vanita Rahman discusses the science of weight loss, including the way the food found on restaurant menus is engineered to contain the perfect balance of salt, sugar, and fat to get people hooked. She also covers how vegans who don’t shy away from carbs tend to weigh less than those eating a low-carb diet that promises to slim you down!

 

Chuck also talks about the Dairy Does A Body Bad report from Switch4Good.

Overcoming Addiction Using Nutrition
01:04:21

Adam Sud found the will to live by overcoming a drug addiction and surviving an attempted suicide. He credits much of his strength to three things: confronting his demons, reflecting inward, and changing the way he was eating.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Adam joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share his remarkable journey back from the breaking point and the way in which nutrition played a key role in his recovery.

 

He is now leading the INFINITE Study which examines the effects of a low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet on physical and mental health as well as resilience in addiction recovery. In essence, can a healthy diet increase the likelihood that someone will achieve long-term sobriety?

 

Adam’s own experience offers hope that sobriety and health can be very much intertwined.

 

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard offers advice to a listener who wants to go vegan, but whose spouse is not being supportive of the change. He offers the tools that can keep their relationship as healthy as a plant-based diet.

Unlearn Unhealthy Cooking Habits
58:54

Improving your diet isn’t just about changing the food you eat. A big part of it is also changing the way you cook!

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Chef Lauren Kretzer joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to help us unlearn unhealthy cooking habits. For many of us, that means rethinking the way we’ve been doing things in the kitchen since we were a kid. It could be not reaching for oil or butter every time you put food in a pan. Or maybe is shaking on salt before ever tasting the food. Whatever it may be, it’s time to unlearn those unhealthy habits and become masters in a new healthier way of cooking!

 

Lauren shares five tips to help get you started!

 

Plus, Dr. Vanita Rahman and dietitian Lee Crosby, aka The Fiber Queen, team up to answer questions from The Doctor’s Mailbag.

 

  • What are good sources of vitamin E other than nuts and seeds?
  • Why is it hard to lose those stubborn last five pounds?
  • How much does gut bacteria weigh?
  • What is the best way to repopulate the gut with good bacteria after taking antibiotics?
  • Should women trying to become pregnant take prenatal vitamins?
  • And many more!

The Future of Nutrition in Medicine
59:01

He was sitting in class and it struck him: why isn’t the professor talking about preventing diseases instead of just treating them with pills? Muzammil Ahmad knew about the health benefits of a plant-based diet and how powerful of a role they can play in preventing the very same chronic diseases that were being discussed.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Muzammil joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to talk about taking matters into his own hands to teach the teachers! He worked tirelessly to add preventative medicine to the curriculum. And wouldn’t you know his efforts paid off! He got the administration to listen to science. Now the future of nutrition in medicine is bright at his school and even brighter for the thousands who will eventually become patients of these doctors-to-be!

 

Also, Dr. Vanita Rahman joins the show to talk about an alarming drop in the fitness of children. Less than half of adolescents are now aerobically fit. Dr. Rahman offers insight on how we can reverse this unhealthy trend! She and Chuck talk about how food can both cause and prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other chronic diseases even before these kids become adults.

 

Plus, she’ll answer your questions as we open the Doctor’s Mailbag.

 

- What are the top healthy choices for vegan fast food? Are there even any?

- Do the same genes that increase breast cancer risk for women also increase the risk of ovarian cancer?

Vince Goes Vegan: The Journey Begins
01:14:44

Vince Bodiford is ready to make a change and reclaim his health! On this episode of The Exam Room™ Podcast, Vince and his plant-powered mentor Kimatni Rawlins join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to talk about the beginning of Vince’s journey into the plant-based world.

 

Like many of us, Vince had become frustrated by his weight and finally reached a breaking point. In his time of need, he reached out to Kimatni for help. Together they offer an authentic glimpse into the real life experience of someone attempting to break a lifetime of unhealthy eating habits and wean themselves off meat and dairy. Eating a “perfect” vegan diet doesn’t happen overnight for most people, including Vince. But with Kimatni’s help he is determined to get there!

 

Follow along as we learn about his first month fueled by plants!

 

Plus, Chuck and Dr. Vanita Rahman discuss a new law in Mexico that would treat the sale of junk food and chips to minors just like cigarettes. It would be illegal for anyone to buy them until they’re 18 years old!

 

Plus, Dr. Rahman answers your questions as we open the Doctor’s Mailbag.

 

- What foods cause acne?

- Are low-fat diets beneficial for kidney stones?

- Is stevia a good replacement for regular sugar?

- Is eliminating sugar the only way to stop cravings for sweets?

Can Vegans Get COVID-19? He Did.
01:14:57

Is it possible for someone who eats a healthy vegan diet to become infected with the coronavirus? As much as you may wish to say no, the fact is that no diet can offer immunity to COVID-19. However, a healthy diet may still make a huge difference in the outcome of the case.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Eric O’Grey joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share his experience with COVID-19. At one point Eric weighed 340 pounds and was on 15 different medications. Doctors even told him that he would die if he didn’t change his ways. He began eating a vegan diet and with the help of a loving dog, Peety, whom he adopted from a local shelter, began to lose weight and reclaim his health. He says that going vegan saved his life once. Now, after getting COVID-19 he thinks it may have saved it for a second time.

 

Eric also speaks about mother-in-law who didn’t begin eating a plant-based diet until she was 96 and in poor health. Within weeks of making the change doctors took Josephine off of all her medication and she began walking  2 to 3 miles every day! She is proof that it is never too late to get healthy!

 

Also on the show, Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Jim Loomis answer your questions!

 

  • Is it healthy to eat oatmeal for breakfast every day?
  • Will pureeing beans reduce the amount of fiber they have?
  • Is it better to eat nuts raw or roasted?
  • Tips for someone with osteoporosis who is going vegan?
  • Many more

How a Vegan Diet Helps Crohn's Disease
01:17:40

Millions are living with the painful symptoms of Crohn’s disease, but they may find relief by eating a vegan diet.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Dr. Alan Desmond talks about the global surge of Crohn’s disease that occurred as more and more people began eating the high-fat, high-calorie, and highly processed standard Western diet. Moreover, he and "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll discuss the way in which a plant-based diet can reverse the unhealthy trend and possibly even the diagnosis of Crohn’s! Dr. Desmond also delves into the science behind how a high-fiber diet creates a healthy environment in the gut and shares some successful cases of patients with Crohn’s who have seen dramatic improvements.

 

Chuck also examines how COVID-19 can affect the heart when he is joined by Dr. Columbus Batiste. The pair discuss new studies showing the ways in which the virus can cause inflammation of the heart muscle and lining as well as the possibility that the damage will be permanent.

 

Plus, Dr. Batiste talks about The Slave Food Project, which explores the “weaponization of food in the creation of health disparities in African American communities irrespective of income.”

 

Dr. Desmond will be speaking at the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.

Dr. Kim Williams: COVID-19 Risk, Race and Plant-Based Nutrition
01:12:47

Dr. Kim Williams takes a new look at the racial disparities of the coronavirus as he joins The Exam Room™ podcast. If the playing field were equal, African Americans would essentially be at no higher risk of COVID-19, according to Williams. However, as it stands now, Blacks are dying at a rate nearly 2.5 times greater than Asians and Whites and at even higher levels in some areas. What then is causing the staggering differences?

 

Dr. Williams, chief of cardiology at Rush University and former president of the American College of Cardiology, examines those factors, including systemic racism, as he joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll.

 

He also discusses research that finds once data models have been adjusted to account for obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol, race does not play a significant factor in the risk of COVID-19 related deaths or severity of cases. Additionally, Dr. Williams and Chuck talk about the role diet can play in mitigating those risks and how those with limited means can adopt a plant-based diet. Thus, their chances of developing severe symptoms of COVID-19 would decrease.

 

Plus, Chuck is joined by Laura Sainz who shares her remarkable journey back to health. Laura was thriving professionally in the corporate world, but also living in constant pain after developing Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic conditions prior to the age of 25. Tired of living an unhealthy life, she began to explore her health but it wasn’t until she adopted a fully vegan diet that her pain dissipated. She details the moment the unhealthy dark clouds she had been living under finally lifted and she was able to live vegan vibrantly. Today, she’s helping others on their journey back to health!

How Your Dinner Affects the Environment
01:01:25

What you eat can have a major consequence on the environment. How does the carbon footprint of foods from a plant-based diet compare to those found in the standard American diet? The differences can be massive!

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Martin Heller to explore the connection between greenhouse gas emissions and food. It’s not just the health of the environment that is at stake, It’s also your health! Dr. Heller explains how eating a diet that produces the most amount of greenhouse gases can substantially increase your risk of dying from heart disease and cancer!

 

Plus, he and Chuck examine Burger King’s new “Reduced Methane Emissions Beef” Whopper to see if the restaurant’s claims that lemongrass-fed cows truly reduce “methane emissions” — a fancy term for flatulence and belches — by 33%.

 

Also, Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Jim Loomis answer your health and nutrition questions!

 

  • Does high cholesterol matter if the bad cholesterol levels are low?
  • What should vegans know about vitamins A and D?
  • Can cheese be a carrier for COVID-19?
  • How can a plant-based diet help with multiple auto-immune disorders?
  • How much iodine should we eat?
  • Many more!

How and Why To Take Race, Culture and Income Into Consideration When Talking About Health
01:06:03

The coronavirus pandemic is once again shining a light on the effects of systemic racism on health.  

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, we delve into some of the unfair health disadvantages faced by Black and Indigenous people and people of color—along with the medical community’s role in addressing these health disparities.

 

"The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by medical student Brooklynne Palmer, a rising figure in the health community and social media star, to discuss how and why to take race, culture, and income into consideration when talking with patients about their health. Brooklynne describes how understanding patients’ cultures and keeping an open mind about patients’ individual stories and circumstances will help doctors best serve all of their patients.

 

Brooklynne also shares her own personal story: why she decided to become a doctor and why she plans to incorporate plant-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine into her future practice!

 

Plus, Neal Barnard, MD, checks in to discuss new information on the ability of the coronavirus to spread so rapidly, how long it can linger in the air, and how contagious a person is once they become infected.

Eat Plants, Live Longer and Healthier! Here's Why!
53:53

The life expectancy for vegans is up to 10 years longer than those who eat the standard American diet.

 

Dr. Hana Kahleova joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to discuss her new paper on plant-based diets and healthy aging. Her research shows that eliminating meat and dairy from the diet is capable of more than just extending your life, it can add quality years to it. She says that the Fountain of Youth can be as close as your kitchen!

 

Dr. Neal Barnard also joins the show to discuss the newest government funded artery clogging creation at Taco Bell, the Grilled Cheese Burrito. While it may sound strange that the government is responsible for what’s on a fast food menu, he and Chuck delve into Dairy Management Inc. which is a federally funded agency that employs an army of food scientists whose sole mission is to create items specifically crafted to get you to eat more cheese. You may think that’s way out in left field until you see the documents backing up the claims.

 

Also on the show, Dr. Jia Xu checks in from Beijing to provide an update on the coronavirus pandemic in China where it all began. He says in some ways life is returning to normal. In other ways, however, they will never be the same. In the case of eating habits that’s a good thing as Dr. Xu explains how thousands are now adopting a plant-based diet to improve their health!

Do You Need Supplements for a Health Diet?
46:19

Do you need to take a multivitamin or supplement or can you get all the vitamins and nutrients you need from food? That is a question that millions are wondering and also something that vitamin companies are counting on. The global supplement industry is worth more than $120 billion as people turn to the vitamin aisle rather than the produce aisle.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™, Dr. Neal Barnard joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to settle the great vitamin debate. You will learn how to eat a healthy diet to ensure your body gets nearly everything it needs from the food on your plate and the vitamins you should still be stocking up on even when eating a plant-based diet.

 

Dr. Barnard also discusses whether the coronavirus can be found on the meat and fish being sold in your local grocery store! Multiple studies have shown people are going home with a lot more than they bargained for.

 

Plus, Olympian Dotsie Bausch returns to the show! She and Chuck discuss the growing number of elite athletes who are ditching dairy and making the Switch 4 Good! As certain as she is that she has a medal to her name, Dotsie is equally certain that talk of dairy being essential for strong bones is a bunch of hot air. Simply put, milk does a body bad!

Debating Dairy: Does Your Body Need Milk?
01:08:00

Do milk and dairy belong in the same category as tobacco and processed meat?

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, health benefits of dairy are debated as renowned epidemiologist Dr. Gary Fraser joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll. Does cheese or a glass of milk increase the risk for cancer and chronic disease or are they the cornerstones of a healthy diet? Some of the research being discussed may be counter to what many who subscribe to a plant-based diet believe.

 

Dr. Fraser served as the director of the Adventist health studies at Loma Linda for 32 years and was heavily involved in the Adventist Health Study-1 as well as the development of the Adventist Health Study-2.

 

Chuck also explores other research that shows dairy can be more nefarious when it comes to your health as he revisits a conversation with oncology nutritionist Alison Tierney. She strongly recommends eliminating dairy as eating a whole food plant-based diet has been shown to be one of the best preventative measures for cancer and other chronic diseases. Alison, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor, discusses the link between dairy fat and estrogen as well as the production of other potentially cancer-causing hormones such as 5alpha-P and IGF-1.

 

Dr. Fraser will be a featured speaker at the upcoming International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.

Twins: One Goes Vegan, One Doesn't. This Is What Happens!
01:02:22

What happens when identical twins eat two completely different diets? Hugo and Ross Turner wanted to know. For 12 weeks one of them went vegan while the other continued eating meat and dairy. What happened during that time was amazing!

 

They join "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to talk about how their experiences differed. One lost more weight, one gained more energy, one lowered their cholesterol, and that's just the start!

 

The Turner Twins' story has captured the world and now they're sharing it on The Exam Room™.

 

Also on the show, Dr. Jasmol Sardana, aka Dr. Jazz, returns to answer your questions as Chuck opens the Doctor's Mailbag.

 

Among the questions answered:

 

- What plant-based foods should diabetics avoid?

- How can an elderly person improve their immune system?

- How low is too low for A1C levels on a vegan diet?

- How much fiber is lost when blending whole fruits and vegetables in a smoothie?

 

--- --- ---

 

SPOILER: If you don't want to know how the Turner Twins’ vegan diet experiment turned out, stop reading until you've listened to the show.

After: 6.5

 

WEIGHT

Before: 187 lbs

After: 191 lbs

Is Your Diet Helping or Hurting Your Kidneys?
55:31

An estimated 1 out of 7 adults in the U.S. have chronic kidney disease. And 9 out of 10 have no idea that they do.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Dr. Shivam Joshi joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to talk about combating kidney disease with diet! While many with CKD are advised not to eat fruits and vegetables, Dr. Joshi explains why he prescribes a vegan diet for many of his patients and how an abundance of plant-based foods can improve their health!

 

Chuck and Dr. Joshi also weigh in on the effect the keto diet can have on the kidneys as well as claims by actor Liam Hemsworth that eating a plant-based diet caused him to develop a kidney stone.

 

Dr. Joshi will be a featured speaker at the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.

 

Plus, future doctor and current social media star Brooklyne (aka @BeetsByBrooke) joins the show to discuss learning culinary medicine in medical school! Indeed, this soon-to-be doctor is learning about preventative medicine before her career even begins! She and Chuck also talk about the current COVID-19 pandemic, the immense interest of medical students in studying the connection between food and chronic diseases, the promising direction of medicine in the future, and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Eating As If the World Depended On It
01:00:33

Now more than ever we should be eating as if the world depended on it, because it does.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Dr. David Katz, a preventative medicine specialist and author of How To Eat, joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to weigh the magnitude of our food choices on everything from the environment to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Katz also shares his opinion on how differently the global pandemic would be playing out if doctors focused more on food and lifestyle rather than just treating the symptoms of chronic conditions. He and Chuck then discuss his time working in an overflowing New York City hospital during the height of the pandemic.

 

Dr. Katz will be a featured speaker at the upcoming International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.

 

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard talks about how your blood type can impact your risk of COVID-19. Should you change your eating habits if your blood is Type A rather than Type O?

 

Also, Dr. Jim Loomis teams up with Dr. Barnard to answer your health and nutrition questions!

Family Loses 250 Pounds After Going Vegan!
01:07:30

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Stefanie Ignoffo joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to talk about their unbelievable plant-powered transformation. At one point in her life, Stefanie could barely climb a flight of stairs and thought she would need a walker just to get around the family’s home. Today, she can’t wait to hop on her bike and pedal for miles with her husband and three children who have also experienced remarkable health turnarounds.

 

Stefanie has parlayed her love of plants and newfound health into a career helping others through her non-profit, Plantspiration. She is also a certified Food For Life instructor.

Less Meat, More Plants!
01:07:28

A report that may reshape nutrition advice given to millions of Americans will soon be discussed in Washington. It is the groundwork for the updated USDA Dietary Guidelines that are set to be released early next year. And one thing is clear — research shows the guidelines should call for less meat and more plants!  

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by dietitian Susan Levin to explore the recommendations that everyone eating a plant-based diet should be hoping for! They also look at the confusion surrounding some of the current guidelines and how they can be improved.

 

The update currently being crafted by the USDA comes on the heels of the American Cancer Society’s new nutrition guidance which does not include red or processed meat, both of which have been tied to many forms of cancer. Likewise, Canada has deemphasized dairy in its latest nutrition guidelines because of cancer concerns. Will the US be the next country to take a healthy step toward a plant-based way of eating?

 

Also on the show, Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Jim Loomis open up the Doctor’s Mailbag to answer your questions!

 

  • Are canned beans as healthy as dried beans?
  • Which is unhealthier: white meat or dark meat?
  • What would happen if all meat markets were to close?
  • And many others!

Dr. Michael Greger & Dr. Neal Barnard Team Up to Answer Your Questions
01:08:17

Two of the biggest names in nutrition join forces to answer your questions!

 

Doctors Neal Barnard and Michael Greger join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to answer questions ranging from vitamin D and the immune system to the nutritional values of white and brown rice. They also offer their thoughts on whether vegans should get tested regularly for nutrient levels.

 

Dr. Greger also talks about his new book “How To Survive A Pandemic” and ponders what would happen if all meat markets worldwide were to close. He also reveals what many health experts worry will become the next major pandemic, one far deadlier than COVID-19.

 

Plus, the powerful story of Kathleen Gage is told as she joins Chuck for a moving interview. Kathleen overcame substance abuse, obesity, an abusive relationship, and denial of her true identity to become a success in the business world. She is now becoming an inspiration in the health community after adopting a plant-based diet and running her first marathon after the age of 60!

 

Special thanks to Vegan Liftz for ranking The Exam Room among their top plant-based podcasts!

Family History, Not Your Destiny: Taking Control of Your Health
59:27

Many of us are fearful that if a disease runs in the family we will get it and there is nothing that we can do. It’s as if our fate is already sealed.

 

However, on this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by Jill Erickson and her husband Joel whose stories are proof that doesn’t have to be the case. Colon cancer runs deeply in Jill’s family — her mom, aunt, and cousin all had it. When it hit particularly close to home she turned to her husband, Joel, and said that she knew that she would die from it as well and that it was only a matter of time.

 

Then something happened one Sunday afternoon. Armed with a big bowl of snacks and the tv remote, she sat down on the couch expecting to burn brain cells and get a few hours closer to an inescapable diagnosis. Instead, she stumbled across a certain documentary on Netflix and began learning about the benefits of a plant-based diet. Suddenly, she realized that her family history of cancer did not have to be her destiny.

 

The importance of nutrition became even more paramount when Joel suffered a “widow maker” heart attack. That is when they pledged to take their plant-based lifestyle to a new level and have never looked back. They are now even teaching cooking classes and passing along what she has learned through their company Rooted Green Wellness and the Food For Life program.

 

This is a story of love, triumph, health, and revelations.

 

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard answers a question from someone new to eating a vegan diet. They are worried that they won’t be able to get the same nutrients found in one particular non-plant-based food without abandoning their newly adopted way of eating. Can they still reap the benefits and keep it plant-based? Dr. Barnard has the answer!

Eating Like the Past Creates a Healthier Future
36:45

Could eating the diet of generations ago be the key to a healthier future?

 

Nurse and certified Food For Life instructor Deitra Dennis, RN, CHC, joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™ podcast to discuss the way that the plant-based foods featured on the African Heritage Power Plate can help people connect with their roots and creativity while living healthier lives.

 

The rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic conditions remain high among African Americans while life expectancies are lower.  However, Deitra’s goal is to have members of the black community experience how returning to traditional foodways of their heritage can result in improved health.

 

The inspiring conversation continues a broader discussion on the inequities and injustices facing the African American community. As Deitra says, she is a solutions person and is bringing plenty of ideas to the table to overcome some of the challenges facing the community.

 

A healthier diet is not the only solution, but it can be one step toward improved health.

Racial Disparities and Health: The Challenges and How To Overcome Them
01:10:39

Dr. Neal Barnard opens the episode by sharing his thoughts on the scourge of racism in the United States.

 

As an organization, we felt it would be inappropriate to ignore our communities, friends and neighbors at a time when they are hurting so desperately.

 

As such, "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll revisits conversations with two leaders who explore the disparities facing African Americans, including a widening gap of health. Author Tracye McQuirter details the nutritional challenges facing the community that correlate to a socio-economic divide. Tracye also highlights the rich history of African Americans and plant-based diets and the 10,000 Black Vegan Women initiative..

 

Then, at a time when black Americans are being diagnosed with chronic health conditions at alarming rates higher than other races, Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams is defying the odds to chart his own course for a healthier life. Eric was beginning to lose his vision and experiencing nerve damage when he was diagnosed with diabetes.

 

Despite the grim circumstances, he would not accept failing health and an early grave as his fate. Instead, he overhauled his diet and lifestyle to reverse his diabetes. Today, he is inspiring thousands to follow of others who feel trapped to follow in his footsteps and live the healthier life they’ve always imagined.

 

He recounts his incredible journey during an unforgettable conversation with Chuck!

Football Star to Plant-Based Sensation: The Gabriel Miller Story
01:16:05

Gabriel Miller dreamed of running onto the field Sunday afternoons in the fall as a player in the NFL. It seemed as though that dream was on the verge of coming true until a freak injury cut short his college football career.

 

With one goal snatched away the 19-year-old set a new goal for himself, to be able to walk without the use of a walker. He was facing a lifetime of surgeries and debilitating pain unless he lost a significant amount of weight. There was only one problem. After gorging on the standard American diet for years (and then some) as a football player, he really had no clue how to do it.

 

Then he had an epiphany. It was one word, really. Plants.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Gabriel joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to share what led him down that healthier path that didn't include countless medical procedures and unrelenting pain.

 

Although he may not have achieved riches in the NFL, he has found abundant prosperity by sharing his story and helping others overcome their own health obstacles. This is one remarkable conversation.

 

Plus, Dr. Jasmol Sardana joins the show as Chuck opens up the Doctor's Mailbag to answer your health and nutrition questions.

 

- Is it better to get too much sodium or too little?

- Is orange juice actually healthy?

- Are agave and maple syrup healthier than sugar?

- Are there foods people with eczema should avoid?

- What can be used for salad dressing that is low fat and vegan?

 

If you would like to submit a question for the doctor please tweet @ChuckCarrollWLC or @PCRM using the hashtag #ExamRoomPodcast.

 

Schedule a telemedicine appointment with doctors and dietitians at Barnard Medical Center. Available to residents of the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, Arizona, California, Colorado, Kentucky, New York, Missouri, and Massachusetts.

Change What You Eat, Change Your Risk of Having a Stroke
54:55

Every 40 seconds someone in America will have a stroke. That adds up to 800,000 people every year. And of those, 140,000 will die. With those numbers, it’s no surprise that strokes rank among the top five leading causes of death in the U.S.


But how many lives could be saved with diet and lifestyle changes? More than you would think!

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Dr. Vanita Rahman joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss how steering clear of the high fat standard American diet can significantly improve your chances of never having a stroke.

 

Also, Chuck is joined by a very special stroke survivor who shares how a trip to the gym eight years ago turned into a stay in the hospital and lengthy recovery. Julie Wright is a well known television personality in the Washington, DC area who was in the middle of training for an upcoming race when the stroke hit out of nowhere. She also happens to be Chuck’s wife.

 

The incident turned her life upside down for months and forced her to closely examine what she was eating. However, she says food was never discussed by her doctors and it wasn’t until she began searching for healthier options on her own that she made the connection.

 

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard offers his advice to an Exam Room listener who recently adopted a plant-based diet and wanted some ideas about losing weight besides avoiding high fat nuts and seeds.

 

If you would like to submit a question for the doctor please tweet @ChuckCarrollWLC or @PCRM using the hashtag #ExamRoomPodcast.

 

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 love for animals by promoting plant-based health and working to end animal abuse.

01:16:02

Nine years ago Bruce Mylrea was diagnosed with prostate cancer. On that day he became a student of health and discovered the enormous role that food can play both in making us well and making us sick. From his studies, an epic road trip with his loving wife Mindy was born! Today, the pair travel the country in an enormous RV covered in fruits and vegetables sharing the knowledge they’ve acquired with all who will listen.

 

Bruce and Mindy join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to give an update on Bruce’s health.

 

Mindy also dishes on her new book, The Plant Powered Penis, which was inspired by the couple’s own experience after doctors told Bruce that he wouldn’t be able to perform in the bedroom very well following his cancer treatment. While many others struggled, Bruce and Mindy never really left the honeymoon phase and are still like a couple of newlyweds! Her book centers on her research on how a plant-based diet can improve male performance.

 

Also, Chuck revisits a conversation with Dr. Steve Neabore about the science of erectile dysfunction which plagues 40% of all men over 40, according to some estimates! What foods can help with erectile dysfunction? Dr. Neabore has the answer!

Healthy Heart: Coronavirus to Lipoprotein(a) With Dr. Joel Kahn
01:04:01

Your healthy heart comes into focus as Dr. Joel Kahn joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™.

 

The pair explore everything from helping protect your heart during the coronavirus pandemic using nutrition to the role Lipoprotein(a), which Dr. Kahn refers to as the heart’s quiet killer.

 

Chuck also chats with former Seattle area firefighter Cindy Thompson who shed an amazing 60 pounds after adopting a plant-based diet and has kept it off for 10 years! But losing weight wasn’t her only motivation for change. There was something far more powerful driving the cheese addict to give up meat and dairy.

 

The one thing she wasn’t expecting on her journey? For her entire firehouse to take the plant-based plunge with her!

 

Today, Cindy is still changing lives as a Food For Life instructor and teaching the online course Cooking to Combat COVID-19.

Gut Bacteria and COVID-19
01:02:20

What is the connection between gut bacteria and COVID-19?

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by gut health expert Dr. Will Bulsiewicz to find out. The trillions of cells in the gut play a huge role in our day-to-day health and during the pandemic they may take on even greater importance. Take a deep dive into what we know with The Gut Health MD, author of the new book Fiber Fueled.

 

Plus, could there be a shortage of fresh fruits and vegetables like what is happening with meat? Shortages of pork, beef, and chicken are sweeping through grocery stores across the country due to COVID-19 outbreaks at processing plants. To see if the same could happen with produce, Chuck is joined by Dale Moore of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Join them as they go down on the farm to check on how the crops are doing!

 

If you are interested in contacting Dale to see if you can help connect a farmer with someone in need please email him at dalem@fb.org.

Dr. T. Colin Campbell: The China Study and the Coronavirus
01:19:45

Have we known the roadmap to treat the COVID-19 virus all along? Dr. T. Colin Campbell joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss how his groundbreaking research for The China Study decades ago may have provided a key to a better prognosis for today’s coronavirus pandemic.

 

Dr. Campbell is confident that there is enough evidence to make a strong hypothesis about the steps people should be taking to combat the virus.

 

And is it a coincidence that the United States has more total cases of COVID-19 than any other country in the world while also staking claim to one of the highest obesity rates? Dr. Campbell and Chuck also ponder how the standard American diet might be fueling the pandemic in the U.S.

 

Plus, filmmaker Nelson Campbell, founder of Plant Pure Nation, follows his father on the show to discuss the efforts he and his team are making to help during the pandemic, including a global program designed to encourage people to change their diet. His goal is to plant the seeds of knowledge worldwide to help people grow into healthier lives.

 

“The diet that will prevent and reverse chronic disease, it stands to reason that it would also help with infectious disease. Health is health is health no matter what you’re talking about with respect to your body,” Nelson Campbell said.

Coronavirus Q&A IV With Dr. Neal Barnard: Safe Cooking Temps for COVID-19 & More!
48:01

Dr. Neal Barnard is back on The Exam Room™ podcast to answer your coronavirus questions. He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll and Dr. Jasmol Sardana for the latest in the Q&A series dedicated to keeping you and your family healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. On this episode, the group tackles everything from the temperature food needs to reach during cooking in order to kill the virus to washing techniques for conventional produce compared to organic to whether there is any data available on how people eating a plant-based diet fare in combatting the coronavirus.

 

Among the other questions answered

 

  • How much protein does a person need if they’re infected with COVID-19?

 

  • Is it possible to have two viruses in the body at the same time?

 

  • Does microwaving food kill the coronavirus?

 

  • Does vinegar destroy COVID-19?

 

We will also hear from Dr. Jia Xu who is stationed in Beijing, China. Dr. Xu provides an update on how life is progressing as mandatory lockdowns are lifted. He and Chuck also discuss whether plant-based eating will become more popular following the outbreak and if the public perception of live animal markets (“wet markets”) where the virus originated has changed.

 

If you would like to submit a question for the doctor please tweet @ChuckCarrollWLC or @PCRM using the hashtag #ExamRoomPodcast.

 

Schedule a telemedicine appointment with doctors and dietitians at Barnard Medical Center. Available to residents of the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, California, New York, Missouri, and Massachusetts.

How Food Affects Sleep
01:21:36

Could food be keeping you awake at night? We already know that what we eat affects everything from our weight to our ability to fight viruses, but we’re now learning that it also plays a big role in how much sleep we get at night.

 

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Hana Kahleova to explore how a healthy diet could be the difference between a good night’s rest or tossing and turning all night. The pair also discuss the foods that are most likely to interrupt your beauty sleep and those that will keep you dreaming all night long.

 

Given the enormous role sleep plays in immune function, it is more important than ever to make sure we’re getting a full eight hours!

 

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard answers a listener’s question about how long the coronavirus can live on fresh fruit and vegetables. He also offers tips on the best way to wash produce to keep the virus from spreading in the kitchen.

 

Chuck then revisits a segment with dietitian Lee Crosby about the side effects of keto diet that might make you think twice about rolling out the red carpet for fat while kicking carbs to the curb.

 

If you would like to submit a question for the doctor please tweet @ChuckCarrollWLC or @PCRM using the hashtag #ExamRoomPodcast.

Coronavirus Vaccine: Finding Immunity Faster Without Animals
01:03:11

The key to developing a successful coronavirus vaccine likely lies in those who have already survived the virus. That is the opinion of Dr. John Pippin who joins , “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™ podcast to talk about fast-tracked efforts to develop a vaccine without testing on animals.

 

Dr. Pippin explains how bypassing usually mandatory animal testing may lead to a viable vaccine becoming available years sooner than it otherwise would be. Moving directly to human trials would also save countless animal lives and save developers millions of dollars in expenses. Potentially those savings would lead to lower costs for the medication.

 

With such promise, could the future of all drug testing become animal free? That is what Chuck and Dr. Pippin will explore.

 

Plus, in this time when we’re all hyperaware of our health we revisit an age-old question: can an apple a day actually keep the doctor away? Dietitian Susan Levin joins the show to dish on all the fantastic health benefits the popular fruit has to offer!

Nutrition & Pandemics: What We’ve Known Since 1918
01:12:30

Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Hana Kahleova are back with  “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to answer your questions about the coronavirus on The Exam Room™ podcast.

 

Plus, Dr. Kahleova presents research that dates back to the deadly 1918 pandemic caused by the H1N1 virus. One-third of the entire world’s population is believed to have been infected and it is estimated that 50 million people lost their lives. However, out of the dark time came promising findings that could have major implications for the current COVID-19 outbreak.

 

A century’s old newspaper headline regarding the findings reads “120 exposed. 90 patients. No deaths. None very sick.” Dr. Kahleova will share the details of the promising research that focused on nutrition, sleep, and hydrotherapy.

 

Dr. Barnard and Chuck also discuss unconfirmed reports that the exotic animal markets in China where the COVID-19 virus is believed to have originated are already reopening after being shut down when the outbreak first began.

 

And Dr. Barnard estimates when the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to peak throughout U.S. More importantly, he and Chuck outline how dramatically a person's health can improve by changing their diet before the peak hits their town.

COVID-19: A Preventable Pandemic?
50:42

The COVID-19 pandemic is turning life upside down. As hundreds of thousands fall ill, billions of others are now stricken with fear and wondering whether they will be next to become infected. As life grinds to a halt worldwide the entire situation is surreal.

Did it have to be this way?

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard and Wendy Orent, author of Plague: The Mysterious Past and Terrifying Future of the World’s Most Dangerous Disease and Bio Warrior to explore the missteps that may have prevented the pandemic.

The group discusses the exotic meat markets in China that are believed to be ground zero for the virus. The conditions under which the live animals are kept have turned the markets into breeding grounds for virus transmission.

More alarmingly, Chuck and Wendy delve into the restrictions imposed on the markets following the SARS outbreak nearly 20 years ago and how they likely would have prevented this pandemic from happening. Why were those restrictions lifted? She first wrote about this in an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times and now takes a deeper look on The Exam Room™.

Dr. Barnard then takes the conversation further to explore how poultry farms and meat plants are rife with bacteria that puts all of our health at risk — even vegans.

Doctor’s Mailbag: How One Meal Affects Your Body and More!
01:03:00

Your health and nutrition questions are answered! On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll welcomes Dr. Vanita Rahman back to the show to open the doctor’s mailbag!

Among the questions answered:

  • How much can just one meal affect your cholesterol levels?
  • What is the best time of day to eat fruit?
  • Can a plant-based diet help a person diagnosed with multiple autoimmune disorders?
  • What is the best form of B12 to take and how much should we be taking?
  • Are you eating enough calories on a low-fat whole-food plant-based diet?

 

Plus, Chuck is joined by Mark Kennedy, Vice President of Legal Affairs for the Physicians Committee to answer another important question. If processed meat such as bacon and hot dogs is classified by the World Health Organization as class 1 carcinogens, why isn’t it listed on the state of California’s list of known carcinogens? By law, the state is required to maintain “a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.”

Mark is here to talk about a lawsuit filed against the state that would force it to add processed meats to that list!

Book an appointment to visit Dr. Rahman at the Barnard Medical Center in Washington, DC.

Join Chuck, Dr. Neal Barnard and more than a dozen other nutrition experts for the Plant-Based Immersion on May 8-9 at the Grand Hyatt Washington. RSVP today!

The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health
37:30

“The healing power of the body is not something you don’t want to take advantage of. No matter what other treatments you need, take advantage of that one.” – Dr. Neal Barnard

Breast Cancer and Food: What You Should Know
57:53

Food can play a significant role in determining whether or not a woman will get breast cancer.

It is estimated that more than 250,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with it this year, but on this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard who will teach you what you need to know to greatly reduce the risk of being one of them. Dr. Barnard will share the science of food, hormones and breast health from his book Your Body In Balance.

You will learn how fat, meat, dairy and other factors can increase the chances of developing breast cancer and the best diet and foods to lower the risk. Plus, you will learn why a woman is more likely to be diagnosed as she gets older and what can be done to improve the odds the diagnosis never comes.

Plus, dietician Lee Crosby shares the breast cancer scare she had at a young age. When doctors first found a lump in her breast she adopted a far healthier diet. For months the mass showed no signs of growth. However, when she returned to eating the standard American diet the next test revealed that the lump had doubled in size.

She and Dr. Barnard share what caused that to happen!

Reversing Diabetes Q&A with Dr. Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro
01:00:31

One of the treatments for diabetes is food. It is possible to reverse and eliminate diabetes by changing your diet.

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro, authors of the new book, Mastering Diabetes.

The pair answer your questions in a wide-ranging discussion about the disease that affects millions of people. One out of every 10 people in the U.S. have diabetes while a staggering one out of three are prediabetic. The burden this places on the healthcare system is enormous with a whopping $327 billion dollars spent in 2017. And that number is expected to skyrocket to $500 billion over the next decade.

According to Khambatta and Barbaro, many of those cases are completely preventable and reversable by the adoption of a plant-based diet. That is what they’re on the show to discuss with Chuck!

Among the questions answered:

 

  • At what point do you start reducing insulin if you are a type 2 diabetic on a whole-food plant-based diet?

 

  • Is it possible to have a normal A1C , but still have diabetes?

 

  • When your culture is all about partying and bad food is everywhere, how can you make good decisions?

 

  • Can steroids such as Prednisone cause diabetes?

 

  • How does diabetes affect Alzheimer’s disease?

Overcoming PCOS with Dr. Neal Barnard
01:03:04

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is one of the leading causes of infertility among women. Many of the up to five million women living with PCOS in the United States face the difficult question, “will I ever be able to get pregnant?”

On this episode of The Exam Room podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll explores the best diet and foods for women with PCOS as he’s joined by Dr. Neal Barnard. Dr. Barnard shares the nutrition science behind food and the hormones associated with the condition. Plus, he discusses how making changes to the diet can help the condition and improve the chances of a woman becoming pregnant.

Plus, Chuck is joined by Alison Tierney who overcame PCOS by making two big changes to her diet that are almost unheard of in her native Wisconsin. The woman from the land of cheese stopped eating meat and dairy!

She and her husband had been trying in vain to have a child, but were having no success. It wasn’t long after ditching cheese and meat that Alison found out she was expecting their first child!

Chuck also welcomes “The Happy Herbivore” Lindsay Nixon back to the show for another delicious recipe from the Your Body In Balance book — Moroccan pizza!

Getting 10,000 Black Women To Go Vegan
01:31:54

More than half of all African-American women are obese, according to the CDC. And the solution to stop the unhealthy epidemic is a plant-based diet, according to “The Ageless Vegan” Tracye McQuirter.

The public health nutritionist joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss her efforts to inspire the community to get healthy through the 10,000 Black Vegan Women campaign which helps women modify their eating habits.

The pair also discuss social injustices of food in underprivileged communities and why there can be significant disparities in life expectancy even among people who live only blocks apart.

Chuck is then joined by Washington Post columnist, Courtland Milloy, who shares his remarkable story of change.

For his entire life he swore off broccoli. He hated it. Couldn’t stand it. Wanted nothing to do with it. His disdain was so great that he even dedicated ink to it in his column.

The problem for Courtland was that the ex-communication of cruciferous vegetables — and many others — was taking a toll on his health. At one time he could barely lift his leg into the car and walked as though he was nearing his 80th birthday. In reality, that particular milestone was still decades away.

Fast forward to today, where Courtland has adopted a plant-based diet and people half his age are having trouble keeping up! He’s chronicled his journey to health in his column and now he’s sharing it on The Exam Room along with his health Sherpa, Gwyn Whittaker!

Foods That Help Hot Flashes & Cramps | Your Body In Balance
01:23:28

It is possible to find relief for hot flashes and menstrual cramps by making simple changes to your diet.

On this episode of The Exam Room Podcast, two women who were pushed to the limit share how they were able to overcome severe hot flashes and unbearable menstrual cramping with food. Plus, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard who explains why certain foods can trigger these conditions and how the hormones that cause them can be tamed at the dinner table.

Ann Friday felt like a prisoner in her heavily layered police uniform when hot flashes would strike. Underneath layers of clothing and a thick bullet proof vest she roasted as the sweltering heat became trapped on her body with no way of escape. She would lose sleep as hot flashes indiscriminately flared up in the middle of the night. The rude awakening jeopardized her focus on the street, presenting a potentially dangerous situation. Having tried everything, she finally found a way to cool off and calm the hot flashes by making one big change.

Lindsay Nixon would be doubled over in crippling pain every month when. The cramps were so severe that she was unable to leave her home. Often she begged her roommate to stand on her belly or would fold herself over the back of the couch thinking that the pressure would bring relief. She also began taking prescription pain killers and considered having a hysterectomy at a young age. The decision would have taken away her ability to have children, but all she could think about was putting an end to her agony. Finally, she found that food was the answer. Today she is living pain free and famously known as The Happy Herbivore.

Lindsay also created the recipes from Dr. Barnard's book Your Body In Balance! She and Chuck go over her amazing recipe for Mediterranean Croquettes and Bayou Quinoa from Day 2 of the book's 14-day menu.

37:17

Erectile dysfunction is a drag! Millions of men are struggling to keep up with their manhood and that's leading to a whole host of problems — not just in the bedroom either.

Most will turn the little blue pill for relief, but the reality is they'd be better off choosing vegetables over Viagra!

On this episode of The Exam Room podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard who shares how better food can lead to better function in bed.

The pair also discuss a petition to the FDA that would require impotence drug manufacturers to put a warning label on pill bottles alerting consumers that erectile dysfunction is often the first sign of heart disease and diabetes. A change in diet can help in that department too!

Does The Keto Diet Cause Diabetes?
59:57

Does the popular Keto Diet cause diabetes?

We’re going to answer that question by diving into what research shows on this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast!

“The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Hana Kahleova who has studied the link between the Keto Diet and diabetes. She says that it’s time to rethink sugar and carbohydrates as the culprits behind diabetes and instead look at the other foods on your plate, including meat and dairy. In fact, she cites a long-term study that finds following a low-carb diet for 10 years or more significantly increases the risk of becoming diabetic.

Dr. Kahleova and Chuck explore the three major nutritional problems that are causing people to live sicker and die younger. It turns out that the three are directly to related to the carbohydrate-restricted Keto Diet.

Chuck then explores the plant-based scene in England with a little help from Emma Humfrey. Interest in healthy eating is leading to a boom in options for plant-based eaters it seems! Emma, a paramedic by day and yoga master by night, also shares her own journey to a plant-based diet and how she's teaching her yoga students about nutrition with homemade healthy plant-based treats!

Emma’s mom, who was skeptical of her diet at first, has now even opened her own plant-based eatery after seeing her daughter thrive!

Can Endometriosis Be Controlled By Diet? | Your Body In Balance
56:33

Can endometriosis be treated by changing your diet?

In the fourth episode of the special “Your Body In Balance” series, you’ll hear from Katherine Lawrence Ireland whose surgeon stopped a hysterectomy mid-procedure after discovering that her endometriosis had improved so dramatically that it had practically vanished. Doctors called it a miracle, but Katherine believed it was because she changed her diet weeks earlier.

So how could this have happened? Was it really the new foods that she had been eating that caused her endometriosis to improve?

“The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll welcomes Dr. Neal Barnard to the show get the answers. Dr. Barnard explains the nutrition science of why that “miracle” occurred in the operating room. He 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.

It was a condition that nearly robbed Katherine of the opportunity to have children. Today, she is the proud mom of three boys!

Katherine has also devoted her life to helping others leading healthier lives as well. She is the founder of Food Saved Me where she imparts her wisdom and knowledge though a series of classes in the Dallas, Texas area.   

Her story is just one of the many amazing transformations featured in Dr. Barnard’s new book, Your Body In Balance.

Debunking ‘Bro Science’: Vegan Athletes, Myths & Facts
01:09:04

This episode of The Exam Room™ podcast is all about debunking the “bro science” that is spread in gyms and locker rooms worldwide. An increasing amount of science shows that athletes are actually able to perform as well — if not better — when eating a plant based diet!

Of course that idea is counter to the low-carb, meat-heavy diets that the majority of athletes have been taught to swear by. The idea of going without beef and chicken is mind-boggling for most competitors. Yet, research shows the only thing mind-boggling is why anyone would still be turning to meat in hopes of becoming an All-Star.

When the Super Bowl kicks off millions of people will be tuning in to see the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers clash on the gridiron with an NFL Championship on the line. And many of those watching might be a little vegan curious thanks to the release of The Game Changers documentary.

The number of players in the NFL who are turning to a plant-based diet to gain an edge is rising. For Chiefs star safety Tyrann Mathieu the decision is paying off handsomely. He recorded the second-highest interception total of his career this season and earned first-team All-Pro honors. But it’s not just his on-field performance that’s getting a lift. His accolades earned him a lucrative multi-million dollar contract last off-season. And now he’s playing for a championship!

But what is it about plants that is so attractive to these gargantuan athletes? That’s what we’re going to find out on this episode.

“The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined Barnard Medical Center director Dr. Jim Loomis who was featured in the smash hit documentary The Game Changers. He also is a former team physician for both an NFL team and Major League Baseball club. Now, Dr. Loomis is fueling his practice exclusively on plants and delving into the science that’s giving players like Mathieu a leg up on the competition!

Why is it that they’re able to recover faster? Do plants actually make you run faster? Can they still perform at elite levels? And can the common athlete and weekend warriors benefit as well? Dr. Loomis has the answers.

Plus, Audrey Dunham joins the show with some amazing plant-based recipes just in time for kickoff. She has some amazing options that will score a touchdown for your taste buds!

Audrey’s Big Game Menu

  • Cauliflower Buffalo Wings
  • Pumpkin Chili
  • Cornbread Muffins

Not to mention her line of vegan cookies at Peanuts Bake Shop!

How To Beat Diabetes By Changing Your Diet: Your Body In Balance
01:17:25

The doctor told him that he would need to be on insulin to treat diabetes for the rest of his life. But he told the doctor that wouldn’t work for him. Soon thereafter Bob Blackburn became the first patient the doctor had ever seen to reverse a diabetes diagnosis.

The idea of ditching meat and dairy was once unfathomable to the former Marine and professional wrestler. For decades his diet consisted of fast food, junk food, and high-fat foods. In fact, while traveling he would plan his routes around his favorite high-calorie restaurants.

But an inner health warrior was awoken inside Bob when his doctor informed him that he had diabetes. From then on, the unfathomable plant-based diet became the only diet he was interested in. 

On this third installment of the “Your Body In Balance” series with Dr. Neal Barnard and “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll, Bob shares his remarkable journey—one filled with a lifetime of adventure, learning, and inspiration.

Dr. Barnard also sits down with Chuck to explore the connection between diabetes and hormones and why a dietary change can be just what the doctor ordered.

Bob’s story is just one of the many featured in Dr. Barnard’s new book, Your Body In Balance, which will be released on Feb. 4.

Doctor's Mailbag: Juicing vs. Smoothies, Eating For Your Age and More!
01:11:38

The doctor is in and she’s answering your questions! On this episode of The Exam Room podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll welcomes Dr. Vanita Rahman to the show for a wide ranging nutrition question and answer session as we open the doctor’s mailbag!

Among the questions answered:

  • How much fiber is lost in the juicing process compared to making a smoothie?
  • Is it possible that it becomes impossible to lose weight when we get older no matter how clean we eat?
  • How should we change our diet to accommodate our aging bodies in our 60’s and beyond?
  • Why wouldn’t high cholesterol levels improve when eating a plant-based diet?
  • Why would a person gain weight after eating a plant-based diet for years?
  • How can a medical professional incorporate plant-based eating and preventative nutrition into their practice?
  • What are low-fat alternatives to the Beyond Burger?

Also, Chuck is joined by Shivani Sathasivam who is leading the way for healthier eating in the Middle East at just 23 years old. She adopted a plant-based diet after enduring unrelenting pain in her knee throughout her teenage years due to a severe injury.

Doctors told Shivani that she would require knee replacement surgery, but after modifying her diet the pain subsided greatly and the surgery was put on hold. Now she’s running full steam ahead pain-free as the leader of Plant-Based Bahrain!

Thyroids and Nutrition: Your Body In Balance
01:32:39

The connection between thyroid health and diet is becoming increasingly clear.

In the second part of the “Your Body In Balance” series with Dr. Neal Barnard and “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll, the pair explore the research available on thyroid function and nutrition.

Dr. Barnard delves into the differences between hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism and the foods to avoid for each condition. He also tackles the effect dietary change can have on Hashimoto’s and Graves’ disease.

Then, Chuck is joined by three people from all different walks of life who overcame their thyroid issues and are featured in the Your Body In Balance book.

Dr. Mike Cowan is a neurosurgeon who enjoyed staying active and competing in sports. Mike thought that he was a pillar of health until one day his bloodwork showed an underperforming thyroid.

Wendy Sax is a film producer who began gaining weight unexpectedly and noticed that her hair was turning brittle. She experienced dramatic mood swings that often left her with feelings of deep depression while also feeling surges of restless energy. It wasn’t long before doctors diagnosed her with a hyperthyroid.

Jeanne Schumacher is a chemistry teacher who also began packing on pounds, but instead of having a jolt of energy, she felt sluggish and was sick all the time. She had become a frequent flyer in the doctor’s office. Her turning point came when she was rushed to the hospital with a 105-degree fever and sky-high blood pressure.

Although they lead much different lives, they do have one thing in common, each are now living vibrantly and healthfully following a closer examination of the foods they were eating.

Their stories of transformation are amazing!

Their stories are just a few of the many featured in Dr. Barnard’s new book, Your Body In Balance, which will be released on February 4.

How To Cook Without Eggs
55:11

Eggs are one of the most popular breakfast foods in the world and they’re also in a ton of recipes. So how can you cook without them?!

On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast you will learn about a number of ways to replace eggs to turn virtually any recipe into a vegan recipe. “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined dietitian Maggie Neola who has a whole list egg substitutes to share! Everything from nuts and seeds to fruits and even potatoes!

Dr. Neal Barnard also joins the show to talk about some scrambled science. He and Chuck delve into a study showing that the egg industry is sweeping unflattering data about the link between eggs and high cholesterol under the rug or misrepresenting it altogether.

Healthy Skin, Healthy Hormones: Your Body In Balance
31:26

If you have been struggling with your skin and battling acne and nothing seems to make it go away, the solution could be getting your hormones back in balance!

As we begin our special series “Your Body In Balance” with Dr. Neal Barnard and “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll the pair are joined by twin sisters Nina and Randa Nelson whose struggle with acne led to bouts of depression and took a toll on both the budding entertainers’ careers. During bad flare ups they would shut themselves inside their home and shut out their friends and the outside world. It seemed as though pimples would plague them their entire lives and that all hope was lost. That is until they changed what their diet.

On this episode, Dr. Barnard explains why our hormones are affected by food and how if what we eat causes them to go haywire, the solution to healthier skin might begin at the table.

Their story is just one of many featured in Dr. Barnard’s new book, Your Body In Balance which will be released February 4.

Fighting Cold and Flu with Food!
44:50

The food that you eat plays an enormous role in how strong our immune system is!

Join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll and Dr. Jasmol Sardana as they examine how to fight a cold and flu with food! Did you know that the average person in the U.S. will catch a cold two to three times every year and tens of millions of others will come down with the flu?

Find out the best foods to eat to help you stay healthy while everyone around you seems to be coughing and sneezing up a storm on this episode!

Beyond food, Chuck and Dr. Jasmol also discuss the vegan flu shot, Flublok. This vaccine uses no eggs during the creation process and is believed to be the best option for those eating a vegan diet. And if you’re wondering why a person would still need a flu shot if they’re eating a healthy diet, Dr. Jasmol sheds light on that too!

Everything You Need To Know About Going Vegan with Drs. Michael Greger, Neal Barnard, Jasmol Sardana
01:29:42

Everything you need to know about going vegan you will learn in this show as Drs. Michael Greger, Neal Barnard and Jasmol Sardana join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™!

This jam-packed show will help you make this the healthiest year of your life.

Dr. Greger will share how not to diet! At a time when we’re spending billions of dollars every year to lose weight only to get heavier and heavier, Dr. Greger clues us in on where we’re going wrong as he talks about his new book, How Not To Diet. He gives advice on the best and worst time to eat, why gut bacteria is so important for weight loss, and how eating fewer calories without going hungry can extend your life!

Then, Dr. Sardana joins Chuck for Vegan 101 to answer the basic questions like “how do I get started” and “what steps should I take first?” She also helps us discover our “why” for change, which is almost as important as the how when taking charge of our health.

For the advanced course, Chuck revisits a conversation with Dr. Barnard that shatters myths about vegan diets! These are many of the same falsehoods that have prevented people from making the switch — everything from getting enough nutrients to athletic performance. And once all of that has been put to bed, Dr. Barnard reveals the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet that can make this your healthiest year ever.

Super Inspiring: The 13-Year-Old Vegan Hero
41:23

Josie is just 13 years old but she’s already saving lives and making the world a better place!

Before the calendar flips to 2020, this super inspiring teen joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll for a special episode of The Exam Room™ to share her astonishing story. The young vegan spotted a cage on the side of the road. On the outside was a sign reading “Free Bacon.” On the inside was a tiny abandoned pig.

Josie knew she didn’t stumble across a meal, she stumbled across a friend whom would soon have a new home and a new name, Franny.

Their story has captured the hearts of thousands and now Josie is working tirelessly to help rescue other animals while spreading awareness of the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Her efforts are similar to the work being done in Michigan where lawmakers are working to outlaw painful experiments on dogs. Chuck is joined by Kristie Sullivan, Vice President of Research Policy at the Physicians Committee, to get an update on our efforts in the state and where things stand with the groundbreaking legislation.

We need your help to continue our work in 2020! From ending animal cruelty to life-saving research for human health to educating thousands of doctors on nutrition, we cannot do this without your support!

Thanks to some very generous members of the Physicians Committee, up to the first $500,000 donated until January 1 will automatically be matched dollar-for-dollar during the December Matching Gift Challenge! That means your generous contribution will automatically be doubled and go twice and far and help twice as much.

The 5 Biggest Stories Of 2019
01:31:41

What a year 2019 has been! Evidence showing the link between disease and diet continues to mount, which means that researchers are more confident than ever that key to leading a long and healthy life begins with the food on our plate.

 

On this very special edition of The Exam Room™ podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll looks back at the five biggest stories on the show from the past year.

 

5.) The final 365 days of the decade were dominated by questions about the health and complexion of our skin and the foods that help keep us looking young and vibrant. Plant-based dermatologist Dr. Niyati Sharma was kind enough to offer advice on everything from dry skin to wrinkles to acne!

 

4.) 2019 was also the year of the vegan athlete with the release of The Game Changers documentary. Elite athletes in virtually every major sport are now turning to a plant-based diet to get a leg up on their competition. Everyone from tennis phenom Venus Williams to NBA superstar Kyrie Irving and Formula 1 Racing champion Lewis Hamilton are ditching meat and dairy to take their game to the next level. Dr. Jim Loomis, a former team internist in the NFL and Major League Baseball, joined Chuck to explain what their new diets are doing to give their body a big boost!

 

3.) The year also saw renewed scrutiny of dairy. It’s been said for decades that milk does a body good, but newly released studies have shown that its effects are doing far more harm than help. Oncology dietitian Alison Tierney joined the show to present data showing rather than promoting healthy teeth and strong bones, the proteins and fat in dairy are actually promoting cancer!

 

2.) 2019 will soon give way to 2020 and before we know it the calendar will reset to 2021 and then 2022. An undeniable truth is that time marches on and we all grow older. Aging is a natural part of life, but can also be one of the most stressful. Many of us fear memories beginning to fade with time as forgetfulness creeps in and worries of Alzheimer’s disease enter our mind. But Dr. Neal Barnard joined Chuck with powerful research showing that we can give our brains a big boost! All it takes is a willingness to make small changes and eliminate certain foods from our diet and replacing them with major memory enhancing nutrients! Dr. Barnard has the science behind it all!

 

1.) The most popular show of the year focused on a problem that we all will face at some point in our life, food addiction. What is it about certain food that makes it impossible to put the fork down? Why are we compulsively driven to eat even when we’re not hungry? Dr. Barnard returned for a fascinating conversation with Chuck, a recovering food addict himself, to show exactly how our brains are wired to get hooked on high fat and sugary foods. In fact, the addiction can be so strong that the same medication used to treat opioid overdoses can be used to curb chocolate cravings!

Healthy Holiday Tips with Audrey and Jeff Dunham
01:15:12

This is a jam-packed show with healthy holiday wisdom and a visit from Audrey and Jeff Dunham!

It’s the most wonderful time of year… for gyms to sell memberships, and fad diet “gurus” to cash-in. It’s also a wonderful time for your sweet tooth with cookies and cakes tempting you everywhere you turn.

But it’s not the most wonderful time of year for your scale or your health. Overindulging and putting on weight has become as much of a part of the holidays as opening gifts. But what if there was a way to make holiday treats with less fat and fewer calories?

There is! And many of the plant-based options are so good that even naughty kids who leave them for Santa get bumped to the nice list.

Join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll and dietitian Lee Crosby as they share healthier holiday secrets and recipes during a live broadcast from the Fruitive Restaurant in Washington, DC! Learn the best plant-based substitutes for eggs and oil, the nutritional benefits of oatmeal cookies, and how to lower cholesterol while still catering to your sweet tooth!

Plus, learn how to deal with social situations at parties and family gatherings from non-vegans and how to plant ahead when you know vegan options will be limited.

You won’t want to miss the recipes for the oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies and chocolate lover’s banana bread.

Then, Chuck is joined in Los Angeles by famed comedian Jeff Dunham and his plant-powered cookie creating wife, Audrey. They share how Jeff keeps it plant-based on the road, an unforgettable Thanksgiving experience with the non-vegan side of the family, and the trick to finding healthy vegan options in the last places you’d expect! Plus, Audrey unveils her new cinnamon oatmeal cookies from Peanuts Bake Shop just in time for the holidays. And you’ll hear about Jeff’s adventures taking cookies out of the oven on his tour bus as it barrels down the road at 70 miles per hour.

Lee and Chuck will both be speaking at The Kickstart Intensive on January 10-11 in Washington, DC!

Special offer for Exam Room listeners! Buy one ticket at regular price and receive a link to purchase a second ticket for only $20! This is the perfect way to ring in the new year with a new and healthier you!
