Description

Could eating the diet of generations ago be the key to a healthier future?   Nurse and certified Food For Life instructor Deitra Dennis, RN, CHC, joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™ podcast to discuss the way that the plant-based foods featured on the African Heritage Power Plate can help people connect with their roots and creativity while living healthier lives.   The rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic conditions remain high among African Americans while life expectancies are lower.  However, Deitra’s goal is to have members of the black community experience how returning to traditional foodways of their heritage can result in improved health.   The inspiring conversation continues a broader discussion on the inequities and injustices facing the African American community. As Deitra says, she is a solutions person and is bringing plenty of ideas to the table to overcome some of the challenges facing the community.   A healthier diet is not the only solution, but it can be one step toward improved health. — — — African Heritage Power Plate https://bit.ly/AfricanHPP — — — Back to the Root 2-Week Jumpstart Program https://bit.ly/B2RJumpstart — — — Farmers Market Coalition https://farmersmarketcoalition.org — — — Trio Plant-Based Restaurant https://www.trioplantbased.com — — — Chuck Carroll Twitter: @ChuckCarrollWLC IG: @ChuckCarrollWLC Facebook: https://wghtloss.cc/ChuckFacebook — — — Physicians Committee Twitter: @PCRM IG: @PhysiciansCommittee Facebook: https://wghtloss.cc/PCRMFacebook — — — Barnard Medical Center Telemedicine Schedule Appointment: https://bit.ly/BMCtelemed     Share the Show   Please subscribe and give the show a 5-star rating on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or many other podcast providers.
