Gregory J. Reiter Fund

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.

Dr. Neal Barnard joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to answer viewer questions about cholesterol, including whether the keto diet can help lower cholesterol or send it even higher.

Plus, Dr. Barnard answers other questions:

  • Can plant-based foods raise cholesterol? 
  • Should you stop eating seeds when trying to lose weight?
  • Why are B vitamins important?
  • Does a vegan diet cause children to have weaker bones?
  • And many more!

Also, doctors are reportedly seeing "astronomical" weight gain among children since the beginning of the pandemic. Chuck welcomes Fit Fathers founder Kimatni Rawlins to talk about the reasons why this is happening and ways to reverse the unhealthy trend. Kimatni also shares details on the 8th annual Fit Father’s Day event that you can participate in from anywhere in the world!

Dr. Barnard will be speaking at the 2021 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine. Save $50 on the cost of registration using a special promo code for The Exam Room listeners.
