Episode 100: Chuck Carroll & Overcoming Food Addiction

“Im not Superman. There are thousands of other people that have made this same change. None of them will ever be in a Marvel comic book. None of them are the X Men. They are themselves… You can do it.”

-Chuck Carroll, Host of The Exam Room Podcast

On this week’s episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with the weight loss champion himself Chuck Carroll. Chuck is the host of the popular Exam Room Podcast, the podcast of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Chuck also has an incredibly inspiring personal transformation story that he documents on his website The Weight Loss Champion. We talk about how Chuck’s love for fatty salty foods started young with his grandmother’s cooking, how he found himself at 420 pound as a 26 year old, his very real struggle with food addiction, the final straw that led him to commit to changing, how he found a plant-based diet and what it’s done for his health, what he’s learned from interviewing the world’s leading experts on nutrition science, and why anyone can transform themselves and take control of their health, and so much more! This is truly one of the most inspiring episodes I’ve done, a must listen.

I had Andris Lagsdin on the show recently, episode 95. I have been crushing vegan pizzas at home since I bought his product, Baking Steel. It’s a steel slab that you put in your oven, and because steel conducts heat so well, you can literally make a Neapolitan or New York style pizza in 3-4 minutes with the perfect crust. It’s like you now have a commercial pizza oven. The pic above is the killer Baking Steel dough (you can order if you’re local to Boston!) with Myokos vegan mozzarella! You can also bake breads and all kinds of stuff. You can even throw it over your stove burners and use it as a skillet and make Beyond burgers or JUST eggs and Beyond sausage. I have never had a sponsor on the show. I truly just love this product and Andris so much that I want to share it!
