Best Diet for Weight Loss: Vegan or Mediterranean Diet?

Best Diet for Weight Loss: Vegan or Mediterranean Diet?

Will you lose more weight on a vegan diet or the Mediterranean diet? "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard to discuss the results of a study that tested the diets head to head to see which is best for slimming down and getting healthy!

The study also examines which diet reigns supreme for improving blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes.

Also, find out whether the brain causes you to crave fatty foods when you’re on a low-fat diet. 

Plus, Dr. Barnard will raise your health IQ and answer listener questions when Chuck opens The Doctor’s Mailbag. 

  • Will you automatically gain weight once you stop eating a low-carb diet like keto?
  • How long does it take for cholesterol to improve on a plant-based diet?
  • Is it better to eat an olive rather than olive oil?
  • What is the best way to strengthen bones and joints? 
  • And many more!

The pair also look at new evidence showing COVID-19 is causing diabetes in people who have no history of the disease. 

If you have a question you’d like to ask the doctors on the show, tweet it to @ChuckCarrollWLC using #ExamRoomLive.
