She made national headlines recently after encouraging her father, director Kevin Smith, to adopt a plant-based diet following a near-fatal heart attack. Now, Harley Quinn joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll in the Hollywood Hills to reveal that he isn’t the only one in the family who she inspired to go vegan! 

She also shares her own heartwarming story of how adopting a rescued rabbit changed her life and opened her eyes to the compassion and health benefits that accompany a plant-based lifestyle. And she has some great advice for starting a conversation with friends and family who are skeptical about removing meat and dairy from their diets.

Her band, The Tenth, is releasing their debut album Dunes on February 10. 


Also on the show are two of the most motivating gentlemen you will ever meet. Cyrus Khambatta, Ph.D., and Robby Barbaro work tirelessly to improve the lives of people who have been diagnosed with diabetes. But what makes them such beacons of hope is that their passion stems from their own experiences with the disease. Both were diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at a young age. 

Today, their enthusiasm and zest for life is contagious, and it's impossible not to get fired up while listening to the way they’re helping people reclaim their health.
