The second episode of the Plant Proof podcast features none other than Dr Michelle McMacken, one of the leading Doctor’s across the globe implementing plant based nutrition into her clinical practice. If you are interested in the health of your body and your friends/families this is an absolute MUST LISTEN…certainly some real ‘Holy Tempehball’ moments.
Michelle is a board-certified internal medicine physician and Assistant Professor of Medicine at NYU School of Medicine. An honors graduate of Yale University and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, she practices primary care internal medicine, directs a weight management program, and teaches doctors-in-training at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City. In 2014, Dr. McMacken received an NYU fellowship grant to develop an evidence-based nutrition curriculum for her physician colleagues, and she is committed to educating patients, doctors, and the public about the power of healthful eating for disease prevention and reversal. Dr. McMacken has received the faculty ‘Teacher of the Year’ award three times and has been featured on the Rich Roll Podcast, ForksOverKnives.com, Sirius Doctor Radio, and MindBodyGreen.com, as well as in several documentary films including What The Health, From the Ground Up, and Code Blue.
Couple of additional points to add to this podcast which Michelle and I discussed afterwards and thought we should clarify (will make more sense once you have listened to it in entirety)
Below are some resources that Michelle mentioned or highly recommends for anyone seeking further information.
