Saving Lives through Diet with Cardiologist & Real Life Hero Dr. Steven Lome

Feb 8, 2023

Today’s guest grew up, like so many of us, on the Standard American Diet. But after watching the seminal documentary, Forks Over Knives, Dr. Steven Lome charted a new course in his life, both personally and professionally, by adopting a vegan diet, losing 100 pounds, and spreading the message about the healing power of plants. Dr. Lome is a board-certified cardiologist, the founder of the Plant Based Nutrition Movement, and a member of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, where he fights to improve America’s diet at a legislative level. And, you may have heard about him in the news recently for his heroics at the Monterey Bay Half Marathon.

We’re super excited to have him here today to share his passion for plant-based eating and discuss the benefits it has on cardiovascular health.
