In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Dr. Joel Kahn about, well, a lot. Of course we introduce you to his new book, The Plant-Based Solution, which covers all subjects plant-based, but we get into some controversial topics too. We look into how hospital food has changed, or stagnated, since we last spoke on episode 91. We also covered the lectin controversy, the carbohydrate debate (that just came up this month) and if there is actually benefit to a plant-based keto diet and if so, how to navigate it.

The highlight of the show was that we actually get Dr. Joel Kahn, known for his sense of humor and co-author of the book “Vegan Sex”, to blush, in discussing the more intimate sexual details. (The truth is I’m blushing just writing/saying it…but the people want to know!!) You know The Plant Trainers Podcast is a family show, but your going to want to listen to the second half without little ears around today.

Joel Kahn, M.D., is a plant-based cardiologist who combines the best of Western and complementary therapies for total healing. Known as “America’s Healthy Heart Doc,” he graduated summa cum laude from the University of Michigan and has been practicing invasive, interventional and preventive cardiology since 1990. He is a clinical professor of medicine (cardiology) at Wayne State University School of Medicine and associate professor of medicine at Oakland University Beaumont School of Medicine. In 2013, Dr. Kahn received a certification from the University of South Florida in Metabolic Cardiology and became the first physician in the world to complete the program. Over the past 25 years, Dr. Kahn has improved the lives and vitality of thousands of patients, taking many of them from chronic health problems to vibrant living.

His passion for education and prevention is recognized by his patients and peer doctors alike. Dr. Kahn’s medical views are published by the Huffington Post and MindBodyGreen, among other media, and he is a frequent radio, TV and podcast guest. He was voted Sexiest Male Vegan Over 50 by PeTA and won the Health Care Hero award from Crain’s Detroit Business. His fourth book, “The Plant-Based Solution: America’s Healthy Heart Doc’s Plan to Power Your Health” will be available January 1 2018. And of course he is the owner of GreenSpace Cafe in Michigan.
