Weight Loss: How Going Vegan Causes Pounds To Melt Away

One of the positive “side effects” of switching to a plant-based diet is that the pounds often melt away. Many people even slim down without spending hours in the gym or counting calories.

Join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll, who lost 275 pounds, and Barnard Medical Center doctor Steve Neabore, M.D., to learn how plant-based diets help trim unwanted weight. You’ll learn how the digestive process changes on a plant-based diet to stimulate weight loss and why calorie-counting becomes a thing of the past!  Plus, is there such a thing as a fat gene? Find out!

Aly Luning, R.D., joins the show to share her “Top 5 Weight Loss Tips.” You’ll also learn the shocking number of chickens Americans eat every hour and the role that plays in skyrocketing obesity rates.

Plus, Neal Barnard, M.D., is back from Europe to talk about his lecture at the Vatican! He’s bringing the power of a plant-based diet to religious leaders and medical heavyweights from around the world.
