01 Feb 7: The Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet with Dr. Daniel Chong
Are you tired of hearing conflicting opinions about which types of diets are good and bad for you? It seems like everyone has something to say.
Dr. Daniel Chong is here to straighten out some of our misconceptions especially when it comes to cholesterol and plant-based diets.
Dr. Daniel Chong is a cardiovascular expert and graduate from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland. He’s been a practicing naturopathic physician since 2000, and his work primarily focuses on helping people optimize cardiovascular and metabolic health. He’s also a contributing editor in the cardiology section for the Natural Medicine Journal and has worked for four years as a clinical consultant for Boston Heart Diagnostics Laboratory.
We’re talking all about lowering cholesterol, reducing inflammation and using food as a tool for improving our health.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- How a plant-based diet can help lower your cholesterol
- Recognizing that a plant-based diet might be more impactful in some people and less in others
- The role of cholesterol-carrying molecules versus cholesterol itself
- Particle size versus particle number
- How eating a plant-based diet can reduce inflammation
- The importance of vitamin C for tightening the wall of the artery
- How blood sugar and a plant-based diets relate to each other
I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about the benefits of eating plant-based. Dr. Chong has such a great approach to looking at every situation individually because there’s rarely a one-size-fits-all solution.
