    150: Exploring Food Addiction, Shame and Transformation with Chuck Carroll

    150: Exploring Food Addiction, Shame and Transformation with Chuck Carroll

    In this episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I have a honest conversation with Chuck Carroll about his experience with food addiction and personal transformation. 
     
    About featured guest:
    At just 5'6" Chuck Carroll weighed a staggering 420 pounds. His 66-inch waist was expanding rapidly courtesy of a 10,000 calorie daily diet and out of control food addiction. At one point he did not think he was going to live to see 30 years old. But Chuck was able to lose an incredible 280 pounds and has kept the weight off for more than 10 years. Today he weighs 140 pounds and proudly wears pants with a 32-inch waist. An NFL player even nicknamed him "The Weight Loss Champion!"
     
    He is host of the popular The Exam Room podcast for PCRM and is sharing his story in hopes of inspiring others who feel they are destined to remain trapped in an unhealthy body. If he has learned anything it is that change is possible! Everyone can have the brighter and healthier future they've always wanted!

    148: This Doctor Became a Patient and it Changed Her Perspective on Nutrition

    148: This Doctor Became a Patient and it Changed Her Perspective on Nutrition

    In this episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I have a conversation with Dr. Laura Freeman about her journey into plant-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine. 
     
    About featured guest:
    Dr. Laura Freeman obtained her Medical Degree from the University of Edinburgh in 2006. She completed her vocational training in General Practice in Manchester in 2011. Between May 2012 and May 2019, after attaining full accreditation from the Medical Council of Canada, Dr. Freeman ran her own Family Medicine practice in midtown Toronto, taught medical students at the University of Toronto and worked with the MedicalCouncil of Canada as an examiner for International Medical Graduates.
     
    Both within and outside of her General Practice, Dr. Freeman has developed a strong interest for plant based nutrition and optimising health through lifestyle choices. In 2019, Dr. Freeman became a diplomat of the International Board for Lifestyle Medicine. In her position as Medical Director for Plant-Based Health Online, she leads a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals in a first of its kind, online plant-based healthcare service.
     
    Her focus is putting her passion in Lifestyle Medicine into practice for her patients and watching the incredible success of their lifestyle interventions.  Dr. Freeman has been commended by her colleagues and patients alike for her unwavering calm and kind demeanour, her compassion and care for her patients as well as her sound clinical knowledge, skill and judgment. Her patients have endorsed her input for optimising their diet, prescribing individualised exercise prescriptions, stress management and improving sleep habits.
     
    Dr. Laura Freeman also certified as a CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) Practitioner. She is also on the advisory board for Plant Based Health Professionals UK and is a course tutor for the UK’s first ever online plant based nutrition course at Winchester University. She runs regular health workshops and ‘Walk with a Doc’ walking groups in her community.

Love this podcast!

I have recently discovered Dr. Yami, and I really appreciate her honest and straightforward approach to health. I have learned so much about nutrition and health from listening to the podcast and truly enjoy it. Thank you for helping my family and I on our health journey, Dr. Yami!

Arlie K ,

The Doctor Is In!

Dr. Yami is simply the best! She consistently provides actionable information about how to maximize your family's health and wellness in a delightfully digestible package. So grateful for this resource!

Elise Lovejoy ,

Fantastic podcast!

I recently discovered Dr. Yami’s podcast and it has changed my life! I published my first cookbook on transitioning to whole food, plant based eating in March 2020 and then the COVID lockdown started. Having recently moved to a different part of the state, I really missed my plant based friends and community. Dr. Yami’s podcasts reminded what a wonderful community of plant based eaters and professionals exists out there. Her podcasts cover a broad array of useful and inspirational topics and I love how she asks each of her guests to tell the story of how they became plant based eaters. She is an inspiration! Thank you! Elise Lovejoy
