Dr. Baxter Montgomery is using food in the fight against the coronavirus! He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™ from the virtual Fairfax Veg Fest to talk about the effects he’s seeing of prescribing a healthy diet in conjunction with state-of-the-art medicine for patients with COVID-19.


Dr. Montgomery also details the remarkable recovery of one particular patient who developed double pneumonia during their bout with the coronavirus and has already laced up their sneakers to resume running.


Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Vanita Rahman answer your nutrition and coronavirus questions as we open up the doctor’s mailbag! One comes from a COVID-19 survivor!


Among the questions answered:


  • How long does a carrier of COVID-19 remain contagious?
  • How do they determine whether a person develops immunity to the coronavirus?
  • Is there such a thing as good fats and bad fats?
  • Can a vegan diet cause hair loss?
  • Does the coronavirus spread through air conditioners in restaurants and on airplanes?
