Is Exercise Enough or Does It Come Down to Diet? | Dr. Neal Barnard Live Q&A

The shocking death of Mr. Big on the Sex and the City reboot has many wondering how someone who exercises regularly could still have a heart attack.


Dr. Neal Barnard joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explain why riding a Peloton every day may not be enough to keep you heart healthy. Could proper nutrition actually be the most important factor for keeping your heart pumping in optimal fashion?


Plus, Dr. Barnard answers viewer questions from The Doctor’s Mailbag.


- Are “healthy fats” overhyped?

- How much benefit is there to eating a healthy diet just 75% of the time?

- Do homemade nut-based cheeses have as much fat as brands sold in stores?

- And many more!


Chuck also reports on a new study comparing the mortality rates of people who eat a predominately plant-based diet and those who eat the standard American diet for some of the leading causes of death.
