Neal Barnard, MD, shares his four steps to tackling diabetes as he joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room!

Dr. Barnard also explains the science behind diabetes and why fat—not sugar—is the real problem. We also explore the role of genetics and how someone may avoid diabetes even when it runs in the family. This can even happen with identical twins!

One out of three adults in the United States has diabetes or prediabetes, so the tips come just in time!

Former college football star Marc Ramirez is living proof that a plant-based diet and lifestyle changes can send diabetes into remission. His family was ravaged by the disease, and he knew that he didn’t want to go down that same path.

Marc sits down with Chuck to share his inspirational story and detail how he made the change a full 10 years after his initial diagnosis and was still able to get off all of his medication. And now he’s transforming the lives of his former teammates!
