"We help people begin truly healthful diets, and it is absolutely wonderful to see, not only their success, but also their delight at their ability to break old habits and feel really healthy for a change."
~~Dr. Neal Barnard

I could never give up cheese. 

Think you can't give up cheese? You're not alone. It is estimated that since 1970, we've gone from 8 pounds of cheese per person per year to 23 pounds. That equals about 60,000 calories of cheese every year.

We have cheese on our pizza, burgers, burritos, nachos, and quesadillas. There's cheese in our salads, our sandwiches, and our soups. Some pizza chains like Domino's even has a pizza topped with six different kinds of cheese.

So what is it about cheese?????

Studies are now suggesting that cheese addiction is a real thing, but how do we break the habit?

Today we welcome Dr. Neal Barnard to the podcast to break it down, and reveal things you never knew about cheese.

Dr. Barnard is an authority on the impact of diet and nutrition on diabetes, cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's.

He is recognized for a multitude of accomplishments including being the founder and President of the non-profit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine also know as the PCRM. The PCRM is leading a revolution in medicine by advocating nutrition as medicine.

Dr. Barnard has a medical degree and is an associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Washington DC.

He has led numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on chronic disease, including a groundbreaking study of dietary interventions in type-2 diabetes.

In his free time, he writes best-selling books all listed below including his latest book "The Cheese Trap: How Breaking a Surprising Addiction Will Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy and Get Healthy.

Today we discuss his book "The Cheese Trap" and his vast knowledge and wisdom about cheese.

Dr. Barnard offers clear, well-substantiated evidence of why cheese is damaging to our health, and why it is so addicting.

He also reveals many other eye-opening facts about cheese that will change the way you view this all-American food.

"During the fasting-mimicking diet, cortisone is produced and that initiates a killing of autoimmune cells. This process also leads to the production of new healthy cells.”
Valter Longo, cell biologist and Director of the USC Longevity Institute

 

New research concludes that a diet mimicking the effects of fasting should be further examined as a treatment for auto-immune diseases like multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, memory, longevity, weight-loss and type-2 diabetes. 

I was introduced to intermittent fasting during lectures from some of the leading doctors in plant-based nutrition on the 2017 Holistic Holiday at Sea. 

What I learned was intermittent fasting appeared to be a new exciting, healthy approach to eating that could benefit anyone suffering from many chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis and even cancer. 

I was skeptical because I dislike any restrictive diets that depend on calorie counting, but don’t let the word fasting fool you.

What I discovered is that there are many ways to practice intermittent fasting and it is more about calorie reduction than depriving yourself of food. This podcast is what you need to know before you start skipping meals.

Today's guest, Dr. Joel Kahn, is one of the world's top cardiologists and he believes that plant-based nutrition is the most powerful source of preventative medicine. He also believes in the power of intermittent fasting. 

Please join me and Dr. Kahn to discuss how intermittent fasting can benefit your health, your longevity, and even your memory.  

Learn why intermittent fasting affects your stem cells and why stem cells are important. 

Last but not least, discover the different ways you can practice healthy intermittent fasting. 

To learn more about Dr. Joel Kahn, please visit his website. Dr. Kahn is also the author of many best-selling books including “The Whole Heart Solution” and “Vegan Sex - Vegans Do It Better.”
