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.

You may have heard claims that fish is good for the heart, the eyes, or the brain. But are any of those claims actually true?

On this episode of The Exam Room™, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Neal Barnard, MD, who shares what the research really shows about eating fish. He’s going to get to the bottom of all of these health claims, including the much hyped omega-3s.

Then, Maggie Neola, RD, joins Chuck to share some of her favorite plant-based fish alternatives! It’s a reminder that adopting a plant-based diet doesn’t mean giving up the tastes you love!
