    How can anyone have a cookout without hamburgers and hot dogs? Quite easily!
     
    On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, dietitian Maggie Neola weighs in with “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on the perfect plant-based menu for any cookout, everything from appetizers to the main course! She even has some ideas for ways to grill a delicious vegan dessert! It’s so good that people bypassing beef for the first time are going to love it.

How do their muscles and endurance compare? Hint: This one shatters “bro science” even though the study was only for women!

    One Day to Wellness: Nutrition, Cancer, and Erectile Dysfunction

    One Day to Wellness: Nutrition, Cancer, and Erectile Dysfunction

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

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

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

    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.
