Live From the Olympics: Vegan Gold Medalist Meagan Duhamel

Fresh off capturing a gold medal at the Olympics, devout vegan Meagan Duhamel joins the show from the Olympic Village in PyeongChang, South Korea. The figure skater is taking extreme measures to keep a plant-based diet at the games, but she tells “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll that they’re working! And who could argue? The Physicians Committee’s own Olympic correspondent is coming home with two medals! Find out what a gold medal meal tastes like and about the vegan options for Olympians competing at the winter games in this bonus episode.

Plus, Meagan tells Chuck how she’s helping to rescue dogs in between competitions in Korea and bringing one back to safety with her.
