In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Chef AJ about the ins and outs of weight loss and how to do it right. It’s always great hanging out with Chef AJ whether we are presenting at conferences with her or attending the conferences ourselves. Chef AJ was on the podcast a few years back for episode 211. Did you know that there is a Vegetarian Hall of Fame…or is there?

Find out in this episode. We cover a lot of what you need to now about weight loss like if skinny people can be fat too, portion control, and other dieting myths.

Chef AJ has been devoted to a plant-exclusive diet for over 42 years. She is the host of the television series Healthy Living with Chef AJ which airs on Foody TV. A chef, culinary instructor and professional speaker, she is author of the popular book Unprocessed: How to Achieve Vibrant Health and Your Ideal Weight, which chronicles her journey from an obese junk-food vegan faced with a diagnosis of pre-cancerous polyps, to learning how to create foods that nourish and heal the body.

Her latest bestselling book The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss: A Revolutionary Approach to Conquer Cravings, Overcome Food Addiction and Lose Weight Without Going Hungry has received glowing endorsement by many luminaries in the plant-based movement.

Chef AJ was the Executive Pastry Chef at Santé Restaurant in Los Angeles. She was famous for her sugar, oil, salt, and gluten-free desserts which use the fruit, the whole fruit, and nothing but the whole fruit. These recipes can be found in her upcoming book A Date With Dessert. She is the creator of the Ultimate Weight Loss Program and has helped hundreds of people achieve the health and the body that they deserve. Chef AJ is proud to say that her IQ is higher than her cholesterol.
