Hello and welcome to Episode 89 of the podcast!
I’m so very excited and humbled to have one of my plant-based heroes, Doctor Neal Barnard on the show this week. Doctor Barnard’s research and books such as: The Cheese Trap, Doctor Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes, The Vegan Starter Kit, Food For Life, Turn Off The Fat Genes, The Power Of Your Plate and many others, have helped so many people from around the world to lose weight and heal from the chronic diseases that were negatively impacting their quality of life.
I was extremely lucky to attend the Doctors For Nutrition first ever, annual Australasian Nutrition In Healthcare Conference earlier this year and hear Doctor Barnard speak about reversing Type 2 Diabetes with a whole food, plant-based diet and was absolutely thrilled when he agreed to come speak with me on the show.
Neal D. Barnard, M.D., F.A.C.C., is a physician, clinical researcher, author, and an adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
In 1985, Dr. Barnard established the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to promote preventive medicine, conduct clinical research, and advocate for higher ethical standards in research. The Physicians Committee also provides direct medical care through its subsidiary, Barnard Medical Center. Dr. Barnard works with patients with diabetes, obesity, and other chronic conditions in clinical research studies aiming to improve the prevention and treatment of these health problems.
Dr. Barnard’s articles have appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the American Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Scientific American, the American Journal of Cardiology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Lancet Oncology, Preventive Medicine, and in many other scientific and medical journals. He is the editor-in-chief of the Nutrition Guide for Clinicians and the author of 18 books for lay audiences.
In 2015, Dr. Barnard was named a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, and he received the American College of Lifestyle Medicine’s Trailblazer Award in 2016. He is an active member of the Medical Society of the District of Columbia, the American Medical Association, and other organizations working to improve health and medical care.
Growing up in Fargo, N.D., his extended family includes both doctors and cattle ranchers, two groups that are increasingly butting heads over America’s health policies. Dr. Barnard’s scientific approach aims to shed new light on these important issues.
