In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Dr. Garth Davis, author of the book Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession with Meat Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It – that recently hit the shelves this week. Dr. Davis is the medical director of the Davis Clinic and is a recognized expert in initial bariatric procedures and revisional bariatric surgery. He frequently lectures on the importance of a plant-based diet. Dr. Davis competes in marathons and has completed Ironman Texas, just like Adam!

This interview is quite refreshing as Dr. Davis is up-to-date with all the latest research. He backs up almost every statement he made during the show with the evidence pointing to a plant-based or vegan diet being the solution. He is a man who makes decisions based on good scientific research and experiences with his clients as well as his own health transformation.


In this episode we discuss:

  • Dr. Davis’ moment of gratitude
  • How his career evolved
  • Med school, the medical profession and nutrition
  • How nutrition has changed his practice
  • Is Paleo healthy?
  • Protein and obesity
  • His views on preventing childhood obesity
  • Protein and diabetes
  • Protein and cancer
  • Are carbs OK?
  • High carb, low protein diet
  • Sugar, fruit and fiber
  • What’s the deal with gluten?
  • Consuming oil
  • Proteinaholic
