Among the topics explored:

  • Can eating chocolate cause acne?

  • What effect does dairy have on eczema?
  • What foods are best for psoriasis?

  • What foods should we eat to look young and combat wrinkles?

Chuck also looks back at an epic week for plant-based athletes and discusses why their diets could be leading them to victory

Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton took home the checkered flag at the British Grand Prix. Just a few hours later, Novak Djokovic outlasted Roger Federer in an epic championship final for the ages to capture his fifth Wimbledon title and celebrated by plucking a few blades of grass off the court and having a snack. Leafy greens, right? And who could forget about Alex Morgan? She helped lead the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to a World Cup victory and won the ESPY Award for Best Female Athlete!

So is a plant-based diet really the secret to their success? We’re going to find out as Chuck revisits an interview with James Loomis, MD, and Physicians Committee dietitian Susan Levin, who co-authored a study examining the effect of food on athletic performance. What they discovered were some of the strongest links yet between diet and post-workout recovery.

 

Dr. Loomis will also be featured in the highly anticipated upcoming documentary The Game Changers, a “revolutionary new documentary about meat, protein, and strength.” It is set for a one-night special nationwide screening on Sept. 16, 2019.
