    Rethinking Olive Oil (Again): Fatty But Healthy? | Drs. Neal Barnard and Josh Cullimore Live Q&A

    Olive oil is loaded with fat and calories, but should that stop you from including a healthy dose of it in your diet? New research suggests it is not just good for your heart but can also lower your risk of dying from cancer and other diseases.
     
    Dr. Neal Barnard joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to examine the data to discover whether you should forget about the fat and feel good about fueling up on olive oil.
     
    Also on The Exam Room Live, Dr. Josh Cullimore debuts to help answer questions sent to The Doctor's Mailbag.
     
    - Is the fat from dairy heart healthy?
    - Why is cheese so addictive?
    - What are some healthy vegan snacks?
    - Is coconut milk healthy?
    - And many more
     
    Chuck also has details about the alarmingly low number of doctors who refer their patients to dietitians and nutritionists.
     
    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 passion and love for animals through rescue efforts, veganism, and wildlife conservation.

    My Weight Loss Journey Is Not a Gym Journey: Stevan Mirkovich's Transformation

    My Weight Loss Journey Is Not a Gym Journey: Stevan Mirkovich's Transformation

    Stevan Mirkovich didn't lose weight by going to the gym. It was the food that helped him lose nearly 100 pounds and got the former athlete back on the road to health!
     
    He joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to share his inspiring story and the diet he chose to slim down. The same diet has not only helped him keep the weight off for years, but laid the foundation for a thriving career helping thousands of people as co-owner of Planted. The company is behind the largest plant-based events in Canada!
     
    None of this would have happened had it not been for a fluke knee injury that ultimately led him to change his life.
