    Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: The Sherra Aguirre Story

    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.

    Why Eating Late Isn't So Great | Dr. Will Bulsiewicz Live Q&A

    Why Eating Late Isn't So Great | Dr. Will Bulsiewicz Live Q&A

    The science of midnight snacking and what happens when you go to bed with a full belly!
     
    Dr. Will Bulsiewicz joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to explain why even though you may love to eat late, the midnight munchies probably won't love you back.  He will teach you about the problems it can cause from sleep to digestion to packing on pounds.
     
    Chuck also opens The Doctor's Mailbag for Dr. B to answer questions sent in by viewers.
     
    - Could the same snack cause you to gain weight if you eat it later at night instead of earlier in the day?
    - Is it better to eat three times a day, frequent small meals, or have extended fasts?
    - Why are doctors recommending colon cancer screenings for people five years younger than before?
    - And many more!
     
    Plus, Chuck reports on a new study of nearly 8,000 people that shows eating fruit may help prevent you from developing diabetes.
     
    If you have a question you’d like to ask the experts on the show, tweet it to @ChuckCarrollWLC using #ExamRoomLive.

    Prescription for the Kitchen

    Prescription for the Kitchen

    What if doctors could write more prescriptions for the kitchen instead of ones for the pharmacy?
     
    That is what Swich hopes to find out. The program encourages doctors to share a program with their patients that will show them how to cook healthy meals that can fight heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other preventable illnesses that are claiming millions of lives.
     
    Swich is more than just recipes. It's about teaching the skills to turn your favorite recipes into healthy plant-based masterpieces.
     
    "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll learns the genesis of the program, how it works, and how doctors can implement it into their own practice when he is joined by:
     
    - Joe Girard, Swich Co-Founder and CEO, Joe Girard
    - Ken Rubin Chief Culinary Officer, Ken Rubin
    - Dr. Brendan Byrne, Medical Director and Co-Founder of Wellness Garage

bvegan4evr ,

Excellent science based information!

Even though I have been vegan for 12 years, I always learn something. Helps me with my WFPBNO journey.

GrandmaEatsPlants ,

Helps me stay on track!

Love the variety of healthy eating topics covered.

SaranWrapItUp ,

Great digestible knowledge that is evidence-based!

The best thing about this podcast is the way information is presented so “normal” people (ME!) understand! I take so many nuggets of knowledge from this channel and I love that you can often find episodes that are specific to a topic you want to know more about. The Dr. grab bag is a great way to learn a little about a lot!!
