    Diet Scores Ranked: The Vegan Effect | Dr. Hana Kahleova

    Diet Scores Ranked: The Vegan Effect | Dr. Hana Kahleova

    Diet scores have been ranked and researchers have calculated how much healthier your own diet could be by going vegan!
     
    The scores reveal what happened when more than 200 people stopped eating meat and dairy and began eating an exclusively plant-based diet that is low in fat. While we have known for decades that eating more fruits and vegetables is healthy, this study shows precisely how big of an impact it can have.
     
    The study also reveals the number one predictor for weight loss, and it’s not going to the gym! There is one type of food that prevented people from shedding unwanted pounds more than any other.
     
    Lead researcher Dr. Hana Kahleova joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to talk about the findings and how they can be used to improve your health.
     
    Dr. Vanita Rahman then returns to The Exam Room to share details on her new program for fighting hot flashes and how much better you might feel within a matter of weeks just by changing your diet.
     
    Plus, Chuck reports on an alarming study for milk lovers that shows a connection between poor health and dairy consumption among heart disease patients.
