In Podcast #63 "How Not To Diet", Dr. Greger discussed fat burning foods to help lose weight. Today's podcast is a follow-up to a few of the foods he mentioned.

First, we discuss which foods contribute to weight loss and why it works.

For example, there are certain foods that increase energy expenditure. Meaning, they have metabolic boosting properties.

Metabolism is the process by which our body converts what we eat and drink into energy. Often when we diet, our metabolism slows down because we need less energy to maintain our body.

Having a high metabolic rate not only burns calories but also gives us more energy.

There are also ingredients in foods that increase fat oxidation, which can increase fat burning by as much as 10-15%.

Furthermore, many scientific studies now show when a person adds these fat burning foods to their diet, they can lose weight permanently. You can learn more information in Dr. Michael Greger's new book "How Not To Diet."

Thanks for listening.

He also reveals the twenty-one weight loss accelerators available to our bodies. All included in "How Not To Diet."

Today's podcast explores the root of all disease, chronic inflammation. Also, the anti-inflammatory foods that can help reduce and fight inflammation. 

Inflammation is part of the body's response to infection and tissue damage, and it is crucial to the healing process.

But over the last 15 years, studies show that when chronic inflammation lingers, it leaves your body in a constant state of alert.

This can lead to chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease.

Preventing chronic inflammation and knowing the signs is crucial.

Inflammation may be associated with general flu-like symptoms like fever, chills, headaches, loss of energy, and muscle stiffness.

Inflammation can also cause redness, joint pain, joint stiffness, or a swollen joint.

It can also affect organs like the heart and cause shortness of breath or fluid retention.

Chronic inflammation can also lead to weight gain.

Protect yourself by learning the causes, symptoms, and treatment of inflammation.

Discover all the anti-inflammatory foods you can consume and how to include them in your diet.

Today's recipes include 5-Ingredient Broccoli Soup and Walnut Pate

Is your tap water safe to drink? 

Contaminated water has become an alarming issue not only in the United States but all over the world. 

Uncontaminated water is essential for human survival, healthy ecosystems, and sustainable development. 

The tap water we drink isn’t just coming from your local stream. It comes from lakes, rivers, reservoirs, or underground sources like aquifers. And any kind of water can become polluted with chemicals, regardless of its size or location. 

According to a new report by the non-profit Environmental Working Group, as many as 43 states expose millions of people to dangerous chemicals in their tap water. 

Residents of Newark, New Jersey recently faced a lead water crisis which put 30,000 residents at risk of lead poisoning. 

And in 2014, the city of Flint, Michigan, switched its water source to the Flint River which led to tainted drinking water that contained lead and other chemicals. 

Children are particularly vulnerable to unsafe tap water. Lead exposure in children can impact brain development and the nervous system. 

Water is such an important topic, and today, we explore how to make sure your tap water is safe to consume.

In today's podcast we focus on the healthiest beans you can eat from my legumes list.

Legumes provide a magnitude of essential nutrients that can help you live a longer and healthier life. And science proves that beans contribute to longevity because they cool down systemic inflammation.

Inflammation contributes to many long-term diseases including cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Chances are legumes, such as beans and lentils are not part of your regular diet.

This legumes list provides you with my favorite legumes, and some easy ways to make them part of your regular diet.

Legumes List includes:

Chickpeas- Also known as garbanzo beans are low in calories, rich in protein, and contain 71% of the RDI for folate. Folate is one of the B-vitamins that is needed to make red and white blood cells. Folate also converts carbohydrates into energy (metabolism) and maintains the genetic building blocks of the body.

Chickpeas are an excellent base for sandwiches like this Vegan Chickpea Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomatoes.

Lentils- Lentils are low calorie, high fiber, high protein and contain 90% of the RDI for folate.

They can be used to create almost anything from veggie burgers to soups, stews, and salads. My favorite is my east meets west Black Lentil Salad with Apples & Toasted Coconut.

Black Beans- Are three times less expensive than beef and chicken and are much more nutritionally dense. They can be the base for any veggie burger or as the perfect taco filler.

Cannellini Beans-Make a great salad. Drain some cooked beans, add some chopped sun-dried tomatoes arugula. Top with some fresh lemon juice.

Or you can make one of my all-time favorite recipes, Hemp Seeds, Cannellini Beans and Spinach.

You can find today's Three-Bean Longevity Soup recipe in this week's show notes

Hope this legumes list inspires you to add more beans to your diet! Thanks for stopping by.

Today, I want to encourage the pursuit of imperfection. 

It's called wabi-sabi, and accepting imperfection is the fundamental principal. 

That does not mean to embrace failure. It means to embrace learning and to be willing not to get it entirely right. 

“Wabi means simplicity, humility, and living in tune with nature." It describes someone content with little and makes the most of whatever they have.

 “Sabi” refers to transience, beauty, and authenticity of age." The term has its roots in Buddhism but eventually evolved into a distinctly Japanese ideal.

The Japanese tradition of wabi-sabi offers an inspiring new way to look at your entire life. It celebrates cracks, crevices and rot and all other marks that time and weather leave behind.

So what does this have to do with a vegan diet?

Because eating vegan is not about being perfect. And I never want to perpetuate that. 

There is no such thing as a perfect human or a perfect vegan.

It is time to celebrate and accept the beauty of imperfection of a vegan diet through wabi-sabi. 

Always remember; when nothing is certain, everything is possible.Hope you enjoy today’s podcast.

A big thanks goes to Nuzest Clean Lean Protein for sponsoring today’s podcast. Here is the link to their special offer for the Ordinary Vegan community.

Here are today’s recipes : Lettuce Leaves with Healthy Peanut Dipping Sauce and Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing.

Organically grown, non-GMO, vegan, pure CBD Oil made from hemp is available from Ordinary Vegan.

The Endocannabiniod System (ECS) is a self-regulating system of receptors that are located throughout the entire body. These receptors work in a lock & key relationship.

This vital system is primarily focused on supporting balance (homeostasis) in the body. If the ECS is not functioning correctly, additional nutrition may be necessary for proper support.

That is where CBD oil comes in. It balances and enhances the endocannabiniod system.

Ordinary Vegan's pure CBD oil is tested for the highest purity and potency. Hope it can help you.

Anyone who spends time in the outdoors, in backyards, in the woods, fields and even urban cities should be concerned about Lyme disease.

Why?

Because according to many reports, Lyme disease caused by ticks, increasingly threaten the health of people all over the world.

Most noteworthy, is over the past two decades, seven new tick-borne germs that can cause illness have been identified.

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the number of reported cases of Lyme disease in the United States, has tripled.

The states with highest incidence of this disease is #1 Maine, followed by Vermont, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, West Virginia, New York, and Virginia.

Tick-borne and mosquito diseases are also on the rise in other states like Florida. They have seen a 77% increase in tick-borne disease infections.

But, it’s not just in the United States.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, say ticks are abundant in woodlands all across Europe from early spring to late autumn.

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is the most common tick-borne disease in Europe along with Lyme borreliosis.

Canada has also seen a higher risk of acquiring Lyme disease. Some patients are reporting that doctors in Canada are not aware of how prevalent it is, making it difficult to diagnose early.

Lyme disease has spread to Asia and around the world.

According to Popular Science, Lyme disease is thriving because warmer temperatures are making cold places suitable habitats for ticks.

One study predicts the incidence of this tick-borne disease will rise around 21% by mid-century because of climate change. And higher temperatures spur ticks to venture farther in search of hosts like deer, squirrels, and mice.

Today’s podcast is devoted to teaching you the symptoms and treatment of Lyme disease, and how to protect yourself.

Thank you so much for being here!

Most people don't think about liver health to increase metabolism, but the liver is responsible for helping metabolize fat, produce bile and clean toxins. All of these functions contribute to converting food into energy.

In fat metabolism the liver cells break down fats and produces energy. It also helps insure that the level of sugar in your blood (aka blood glucose) stays constant. 

Bile is primarily well-known as a digestive secretion that helps to digest fats. Bile also breaks down nutrients from food to produce energy and converts inactive Thyroid Hormone (T4) to active T3 that the cells can use. 

And when harmful toxins and substances enter your bloodstream, your liver acts fast to detoxify and destroy them. 

So keeping your liver healthy is crucial for overall health.

Cleansing your liver can also affect your pancreas and help produce normal levels of insulin. You could also see improved blood pressure and better cholesterol numbers. 

In today’s podcast, we discuss 10 ways to cleanse your liver naturally to increase metabolism. 

I am going to begin this 2-3 week liver cleanse to increase metabolism on June 3. Hope you can join me. Please join our health and wellness community on Facebook to track our progress.

Whether you're giving up animal products for your health, animal rights or climate change, you may need assistance. Today we discuss some tried and tested vegan tips to help this process go more smoothly.

Here are a few problems we explore.

Eating out or not knowing what to feed your non-vegan family can be challenging. These vegan tips should help you survive as a vegan in a multi-vore household.

Leading a busy lifestyle, eating out and trying to find quick plant-based options are also addressed. As more and more fast food restaurants offer vegan selections, the simpler it becomes. Learn your options in today's podcast.

Additionally, it is not always going to be easy, but remember that “straying maps the path.” From the inspiring wisdom of Rumi's poem “The Sight Of A Soul.”

My interpretation of that poem is until we stray from the path we will never know what is waiting for us.

Furthermore, change is scary. But Rumi also says “when you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you.” And big changes, like eating plant-based, bring big positive consequences!

I hope today's vegan tips help you begin or continue on your path towards veganism.

Other topics discussed today include the April 2019 supplement study from researchers from Tuft's University. You can learn more here.

Vegan Tips Recipe of The Day

Ordinary Vegan's recipe of the day is Marinated Seitan Sandwich with Spicy Red Cabbage Slaw. We also discussed Ordinary Vegan's Beef Stew and Vegan Gravy.

Thanks to our sponsor, Clean Lean Protein from Nuzest. To order your special clean lean protein starter pack with FREE SHIPPING, go to Nuzest.us/ov  today.

Additionally, I am devoted to keeping you healthy, so I began creating my own line of CBD oil made from hemp to assist you.

CBD oil is a natural compound found in the hemp plant.

Despite its close relation (cousin) to psychoactive cannabis, hemp and hemp-derived products don’t make you high.

In December 2018, The Farm Bill was passed making hemp and CBD oil from hemp federally legal.

I choose to provide CBD oil to our community because all CBD is not created equal and many companies import their CBD from China. Those oils can contain contaminants, pesticides and heavy metals.  I wanted to make sure you received the safest and most reliable Vegan CBD oil on the market.

Just go to OrdinaryVegan.net to order.

Helping people naturally is what CBD is all about, and I hope it can help you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at questions@ordinaryvegan.net or visit our FAQ page.

Fifty-years-ago, the sugar industry funded research that downplayed the risks of sugar and highlighted the hazards of fat. Forty-years-ago, high fructose corn syrup  (HFCS) started trickling into our food supply. Most people didn't know what HFCS was. So began the confusion about what is sugar and what sugars are healthy.

When I decided to tackle the subject of sugar, one of the most surprising statistics I found out is that 99% of  toddlers ages 12 to 18 months are downing 5-7 teaspoons of added sugar a day.  Not only that, the average sugar consumption for adults is 25 teaspoons a day. Well over the recommended amounts. 

Since the discovery of high fructose corn syrup, the American consumption of fructose jumped from 37 grams per day in the 1970s to a record high of 62 grams per day in 2000.

So where is all this added sugar coming from? Here is an example. A 20 oz soft drink contains about 16 teaspoons of high fructose corn syrup, and an energy drink can hold over 50 grams of high fructose corn syrup. Salad dressings, ketchup, fruit drinks and even bread can have a large amounts of sugar. And most people have no idea they are consuming this much-added sugar.

In today’s podcast, we break down the truth about sugar, and how it impacts our health. We also examine natural sugars and their role in a healthy diet.

We also discuss why sugar may not be vegan due to its questionable infiltration.

It's no secret that human activity is changing the climate.  For many, how to protect the environment can seem like a daunting task.

In October 2018, the United Nations top climate science panel gathered in South Korea to prepare a new report on climate change. Their report stated the starkest warnings to date of the consequences of climate change.

They predicted if significant steps were not taken, global warming could create extreme heat, drought, floods, poverty, and trillions of dollars in debt.

Not long after, in December 2018, The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet and Health was released. This commission brings together more than 30 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy, sustainable diet.

Their findings were equally as dire. The report revealed that if we don't make a radical change in diet and food production, we could be facing catastrophic damage to our planet.

The good news is you don't have to feel helpless about the future of the planet. Because how to protect the environment begins with you. And there are positive steps we can do to tackle climate change right now.

Today's podcast focuses on unexpected ways you can help.

Thanks for listening and always remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle because how to protect the environment begins with you.

Positive emotions have been linked with better health, longer life,  and a greater sense of well being. 

If you are reading this, then you already are seeking to live a healthier lifestyle,  And a healthy lifestyle brings longevity.  We talk so much about living longer but do we ask ourselves enough “why do we want to live longer?”

What is our sense of purpose that gets us up every day and brings us pure joy? 

Today, we live in a world we can never escape. Our phones are continually pinging us with bad news. Social media is dividing us more than connecting us. 

A growing body of evidence shows that this constant barrage of news and sharing on social media can lead to depression and increased feelings of inadequacy. 

Many studies have shown that people who are unhappy are three to ten times more likely to get sick and die prematurely compared to those who have a stronger sense of connection, joy, and community.

Today we explore the idea of giving up everything that doesn’t bring us joy. We also discuss what is joy and how we can bring more joy into our lives. 

STUDIES DISCUSSED: 

Alzheimers & Irisin
The Mysteriously Long Lives of Male Holocaust Survivors

Each year, over 50 million Americans experience various types of allergies.

Many of these allergic conditions are on the rise. 

In medicine, the hygiene hypothesis states a lack of early childhood exposure to germs suppresses the natural development of the immune system. 

In other words, living conditions in much of the world might be too clean and being exposed to germs as a child may protect us from allergies. 

An additional theory is that the increased antibiotic use parallels the rise in allergies and asthma. 

But other research suggests that the rising prevalence of allergies are the result of many factors.

Bottom line, no one really knows the why, but there are ways we can protect ourselves. 

Today we will explore the most common allergy causes, symptoms, and prevention. 

Discover what allergen triggers could be lurking in your home. Learn the difference between cold and allergy symptoms.  Find out some plant-based substitutions for common food allergies. 

Last but not least, I will reveal three foods that can help relieve your allergies.

Hope you enjoy today’s podcast.

You may think dream interpretation is an unusual subject for a health and wellness podcast, but dreaming is an important function for our emotional health. Dreams are often the way the brain solves problems and deals with our concerns.

Furthermore, some psychologists think that dreams are nothing more than random brain activity. While others like Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung believe that dreams can reveal a person's deepest unconscious wishes and desire.

In particular, Freud's work on dreams explored the possibility of universal symbols in dreams. However, he was cautious about symbols and believed that symbols are more personal rather than universal. In other words, no one dream interpretation fits all.

And why do the same dreams reoccur? Why do you keep dreaming of missing a plane or having to cram for a college exam after you graduated from college? Some people even dream that they are being murdered or murdering someone else.

Above all,  lengthy, distressful, or violent nightmares can disrupt our sleep and as we all know rest is essential to human health.

Today, we learn how to analyze our dreams and why it is important with dream expert, Tricia Kelly.

Tricia Kelly teaches an inspirational blend of Western and Eastern wisdom. Her thirty-eight years of teaching are enhanced with perspectives gained from traveling the world. She includes in her work the dream symbolism and wisdom of psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Carl Jung and Edward Edinger.

Tricia's philosophy is that dreams are simply a doorway into our deeper selves, and teach us who we are and how we are made.

Tricia has an office in Costa Mesa, California. She is currently traveling and will begin meeting new clients in February 2019. You can reach her at dreamdrop676@gmail.com.

Thank you for listening and I hope you enjoy the podcast.

You can find all my podcasts on my website, Ordinaryvegan.net,  iTunes,Spotify, Alexa, or on your favorite podcatcher.

Last but not least, Ordinary Vegan now sells all natural Vegan CBD Oil from Hemp. Ordinary Vegan  products are plant-based (vegan), Non-GMO, gluten-free, and tested to ensure the best quality CBD Oil available.

Many people describes their experience taking Ordinary Vegan CBD productsas feeling contented, clear-headed and composed.

Hope CBD Oil from hemp can help you. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask at questions @ ordinaryvegan.net. Or visit our FAQ page.

The amount of faux meats and processed vegan-friendly products has exploded in the past two years.

Subsequently, if you are a full-time or part-time vegan who regularly consumes processed vegan foods, these foods can be as unhealthy as animal products.

Bottom line, vegan lifestyles aren’t always healthier if you don’t fill your plate with a balance of whole vegan foods.

In today’s podcast, I discuss the 10 ten vegan foods you should include in your diet every day.

So even if you are already on a vegan diet, sometimes you need to get back to the basics and eat well-planned vegan foods to make sure you don’t miss out on essential nutrients.

Once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature.

In brief, no matter where you are on your vegan journey, eating a whole-food, plant-based diet centered on whole, unrefined vegan foods, will drastically improve your health and you will feel better than you have ever felt.

I also hope you join us on the 21-day Healthy Vegan Eating Challenge.

When I saw that September was National Suicide month, a month devoted to inform and engage the general public about suicide prevention, I finally got the courage to do a podcast about this subject. 

Suicide is a national health crisis and a serious medical condition like cancer or heart disease, and there should be no stigma attached to suicidal thoughts.

If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts yourself, there are immediate confidential options to help you cope and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Just call 1-800-273-8255 in the United States. Or text HOME to 741741. 

You can also seek out a mental health professional at Mental Health America. 

There are also over 30 countries known to have national suicide prevention services and strategies. 

Thanks for joining me today. Suicide is a difficult conversation to initiate, but with better education and understanding, we can all help each other.

Do you often feel the pain of others? Do you feel drained after being around certain people for too long? Do you find yourself caring for or taking care of others more than yourself sometimes? Do you feel feelings deeper, harder, and longer than others. Are you sensitive to smells, crowds or excessive talking. Do you have a strong connection to nature or the animal kingdom? If so, you may be an empath.

The trademark of an empath is that they feel and absorb other people's emotions and/or physical symptoms because of their high sensitivities.

Empaths are often targeted by emotional vampires due to the strength of the empath's emotions and vibrant energy.

So being an empath can be exhausting, especially if you don't understand this characteristic of yourself, and don't know how to protect yourself.

In today's podcast, we will explore the traits of an empath with Dr. Judith Orloff, the leading voice in the field of empaths, psychiatry, and intuitive development.

Dr. Orloff is the author of the best selling Book "The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People." In the book she educates readers about empaths, and offers strategies for empaths to protect themselves.

Hope you enjoy today's podcast. If you are just getting started on a plant-based diet, I recommend listening to Podcast #1: Getting Started On A Vegan Diet and Podcast #10: How To Achieve Optimal Health On A Plant-Based Diet.

To learn more about Dr. Judith Orloff and take a free empath self-assessment, visit www.DrJudithOrloff.com.

You can purchase Dr. Orloff's best selling book, The Empaths Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People" on Amazon. Judith also has other best selling books including "Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life".

Dr. Orloff is also doing empath workshops and book signings all over the country including Kansas City, New York City, Los Angeles and Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by the Ordinary Vegan line of CBD products made from agricultural hemp.

Vegan CBD Oil from hemp is a natural plant food that is taking the wellness world by storm for its promising ability to help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, migraines, arthritis ,fibromyalgia, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder and chronic pain.

When I began hearing the testimonials from so many of you in the Ordinary Vegan community, I was skeptical.  But after two years of research, I  came to the decision that CBD Oil is helping people get off medication for chronic pain or anxiety.

And there are so many CBD brands out there that are not safe or effective so I made a decision that it was essential to provide a safe, reliable vegan CBD oil from hemp for our health and wellness community.

You can find my CBD Oil from Hemp on my website ordinaryvegan.net and don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions at questions@ordinaryvegan.net.

Cooking with plants is a lifestyle that can be enjoyed full or part-time. Even adding two or three plant-based meals to your diet every week can have significant health benefits.

A recent study published in the Journal of The American Heart Association revealed that swapping one or two servings of animal protein for plant protein could lead to a reduction in three main cholesterol markers for cardiovascular disease. 

Another study suggests that eating only one cup of leafy greens a day could slow the rate of memory decline in older adults. 

Today's podcast is devoted to getting back to the basics of cooking with plants. It doesn't have to be complicated. The methods of cooking that we discuss today provide maximum nutrition and satiate without a lot of time or energy. The kind of nutrition that makes you want to run up a mountain and not take a nap.

So please join me today and learn how to create delicious nutritious one-pot meals and easy steps to building a vegan burger.

I now advocate and promote CBD Oil from Hemp because it has shown to have a remarkable ability to help people with chronic pain and anxiety disorders. I base this on the hundreds of testimonials I have received. It took me two years, but I finally found a CBD oil to sell that is safe, effective, third-party tested, seed to shelf, environmentally friendly CO2 extraction and vegan of course. Unfortunately, most of the CBD on the market is not high quality.You can now purchase my vegan Plant-Based CBD Oil made from Hemp from me here. Hope it can help you!

Health and wellness are not merely about diet and exercise, but also about limiting our exposure to toxic chemicals.

For the past two decades, toxic chemicals have been added to everything from make-up, household cleaning supplies, clothing, pots, pans, building materials, mattresses, and even perfume. And scientific studies are now showing us that chemicals found in a wide array of household goods are more toxic than we thought.

Today's podcast is devoted to unveiling the most common toxic chemicals that could unknowingly be harming your health and how to avoid them.

We will also discuss chemical toxicants that can induce autoimmune disease and the potential for environmental substances to worsen an autoimmune condition.

Toxic Chemicals cited:

Phthalates

Perchloroethylene (PERC)

Triclosan

Asbestos

"The Starch Solution is a diet based on starch. Yes, let me say that again, it is a diet based on starch"
                             --Dr. John McDougall

“Dr. John McDougall is the dean of medical practitioners in nutrition-centered medicine- because of his incredible accomplishments, knowledge, and courage to stand up for what he believes. Thousands of his patients know him as an icon. When you read this book, you will too.”
— T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., coauthor of The China Study

These days, you mainly hear people recommending reducing carbs, particularly starchy carbohydrates. But Dr. John McDougall has experienced tremendous success with his chronically ill patients by emphasizing a vegan starch based diet.

If you have never heard of Dr. John McDougall, he has been a pioneer in the plant-based wellness world for many years.

As far back as the 1970s, Dr. McDougall began developing the starch based diet.

It all began when he was practicing medicine on a sugar plantation in Hawaii. He observed the declining health of families who traded their starch based diet from their native Asian countries and began eating a typical Western diet of red meat, oils, and processed foods.

The result was the Asian immigrants began to experience serious Western diseases like type-2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease which were unheard of in their native countries.

So, Dr. McDougall began treating his patients with whole plant-based foods that were free of meat, fish, eggs, dairy, and oil. The diet was approximately 80% percent complex carbohydrates, 12 percent protein, and 8 percent fat. Spices and small amounts of salt and sugar were added for flavor.

What Dr. McDougall discovered is that a plant-based starch based diet helped his patients lose weight and reverse their chronic disease.

In 2002, Dr. McDougall began the McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, California. The McDougall program is a three or 10-day residential treatment program which features his plant-based, low fat, starch based diet.

In June 2013, Dr. McDougall released his best selling book "The Starch Solution," which has sold over a million copies. His partner in life and wife Mary contributed recipes for the book.

The "Starch Solution" is based on a simple swap; fueling your body primarily with carbohydrates rather than proteins and fats. Dr. McDougall's legion of followers says they have lost weight, boosted their energy and reversed their chronic disease like type-2 diabetes and heart disease.

Hope you enjoy today's fascinating conversation with best selling physician and nutrition expert, Dr. John McDougall.
