Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 112 with Timaree Hagenburger

Welcome and thanks for listening.  If you previously downloaded an unedited addition I am sorry and honestly do not know how the out takes got added back in.  This episode is the second in a series with Timaree Hagenburger on staying the plant based nutrition course.  Like producing this podcast alone it can be very frustrating and difficult at times.  With all the obstacles one can often ask why?  Sakichi Toyoda who was the founder of Toyota actually asked why 5 times.  Finding the real why makes us perservere in times that are not easy.  We also talked about the power of the pause.  If you can just pause and create a little space before acting you can often remember your why and choose more wisely.  Does having that cheese pizza fit your why?  Or could you still enjoy an evening with friends and a vege pizza without cheese?  We also discussed preparing ahead of time for the if-then situations.  If you are presented with this, then what would the best version of yourself choose.  If you always end up eating something bad when you select this restaurant, then perhaps you can choose ahead of time what you should select and be ready for the temptation.  We referenced a few books as well.  How to Have a Good Day by Caroline Webb and Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield.  Please check out our websites. and  Email me with questions at and follow us on Instagram @jaimeladulaney and TheNutiProf.  Again I am sorry for the out takes.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 111-Backyard to Vineyard Challenge

Welcome.  The Backyard to Vineyard Challenge at the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, N.C. is in the books.  I completed a 13.1 mile run on Saturday and a 26.2 mile race the next day.  It was part paved and part dirt road/trail all on the Biltmore property.  The scenery was fantastic and mother nature added another challenge by snowing 3 inches Saturday night with blizzard like snow at the beginning of the race on Sunday.  The roads turned from slush to mud fairly quick giving my trail shoes a great initiation.  Asheville is a plant based eaters paradice with many restarants to choose as well as many cuisines.  The races were well supported with water and nutrition as well.  It was so good we signed up again for next year.  We also chat a little on transitioning your family to whole foods plant based without a mutany from the teenagers.  Bottom line, just don't make a big deal out of it.  Present colorful food that tastes great and back out the bad stuff without making a fuss.  Slip in a few more vegetables even pureed into soups and stews if need be.  Smoothies are a great way to hide a cup of greens for the little ones.  Eliminating dairy will protect them against Juvenile diabetes and arthritis.  

Thanks for listening.  You can email me at  Please check out my website at and I am on Instagram and Twitter @jaimeladulaney.  Thank you and have a great rest of your week.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 110-Superfood or Whole Food

Time is one of my most precious commodities.  If I just had a few more hours in the day, I could do so much more.  The next thought is often, how can I do that more efficient or quicker? There are a lot of suggestions on how to do just that and they are referred to often as "life hacks".   Nutrition is the first thing that is often "hacked"  Drive through food, frozen dinners, shakes and supplements are just a few.  Is so called "astronaut food" as good as "real food"? Could we live on supplements or dehydrated superfoods?  Would we want to? I often get asked are vegetables powders and proteins ok? or are they just the same?  The first thought is that no one wants their pizza dehydrated or their burger dehydrated but who cares about the beets?  How about the greens?  I care.  I did a little research of my own and came up with a very interesting article from The Johns Hopkins University Press and the Society for the History of Technology call Algae Burgers for a Hungry World? The Rise and Fall of Chlorella Cuisine.  I found it fascinating and so timely.  I hope you enjoy listening to my synopsis of the paper.  I would also like to invite you to plant based Fridays during the Lent Season.  Hold the meat, fish, dairy and oil on Fridays and see how it goes.   Take time to enjoy the flavor and colors of your meal much like spring time.  Notice the aliveness of your plate with the vegetables and fruit and feel the goodness after your meal.  Contact me at jamidulaney@gmail with questions and please visit for all that is new.  I would love a review on ITunes or on Google if you enjoy my content.  Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast-Episode 109 with Timareee Hagenburger, RD, MpH

Welcome and thank you for listening.  In Today's podcast I reconnect with Timaree Hagenburger, RD, MpH to discuss stumbling blocks for maintaining or perhaps starting a plant based diet.  This episode will kick off a series of podcast discussions with Timaree on being an "excusatarian" vs a "doer"  Sometimes when you actually speak of the excuses they become less real.  Sometimes, you just need help figuring out an alternative.  Perhaps we can help you to make adopting plant based nutrition a little easier or perhaps just perceive it as less of a change and more of an opportunity.  In reality the stumbling block are small and your ability to over come these perceived obstacles to health will not be that hard and can actually be quite enjoyable.  I hope you enjoy listening and please email me with questions at  Visit my website at  Pick up a copy of Timaree's book, The Foodie Bar Way for great recipes.  Check us both out on Instagram to see what is cooking.  I'm found at jaimeladulaney and Timaree can be found at thenutritionprofessor.  Check out her website as well at

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast-Episode 108-New Changes Coming

Welcome and thank you for listening.  Nutrition as medicine.  Plants as medicine.  Those are the themes today.  What is it to be a physician that focus on nutrition to help people become healthy.  It is not much different from a diagnostic view.  One needs to be able to spend time with a patient to diagnose their problems.  The next step is to diagnose how their nutrition plays a role in causing and promoting thier disease.  That becomes tricky because it is rarely a part of the traditional medicine discussion.  We as physicians typically diagnose and then treat or problem solve.  This usually means to presribe medications.  It then becomes a partnership or a team approach with the patient and the physican joining to develop a plan to get to the point where their nutrition is healing and not participating in disease.  It is challenging and rewarding.  I look forward to the journey to achieve health working with each of my patients.  Follow my posts on Instagram to see what I eat @jaimeladulaney.  Check out my website at  Email me at with questions.  I would love to hear from you and would be glad to do a telemedicne consult with you to help you on your journey.  

Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 107-Happy Heart Day

Happy Heart Day!  Happy Valentine's Day.  What a great time to be a mender of hearts.  Better yet what a great time to be a preventer of broken hearts.  This episode is dedicated to my grandmothers both of which died of heart disease too young.  Both had diabetes, the biggest risk factor for heart disease.  It took me a long time to learn that these diseases are both preventable.  Still 1 in 3 women will die from heart disease.  That is significantly more than the 1 in 9 that develop breast cancer.  The American Heart Association say that 80% of heart disease could be prevented with lifestyle modification. It then goes on to talk about medications and procedures never addressing how to reverse these lifestyle behaviors.  Eat right?  How right?  Don't smoke that is a no brainer one would think.  Exercise?  How much is good enough because studies have shown that if you sit for prolonged periods it negates the effect of exercise. Diabetes?  How do you avoid it and better yet can your reverse it?   Yes you can with a whole foods plant based diet.  I hope you enjoy listening to my thoughts on the above.  Email me at or contact me at Follow me on Instagram @jaimeladulaney to check out my meals.   Better yet set up a telemedicine conference to discuss your plant of action.  Spead some love this Valentine's day even with a simple hello to a stranger or acknowledging your waitor or check out persion at the grocery store.  Your heart will feel better and so will theirs.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 106 with Justin Lacy

The side effects of plant based nutrition are not only the elimination of medications but weight loss that is sustainable.  This is a way of life that is enjoyable that increases energy and positivity.  There are no gimmicks, and everything you need can be found in any grocery store.  Today's guest struggled with being overweight his entire life.  He has lost 100s of pounds only to gain them back plus more, finally topping out over 500 pounds.  A stranger's post on plant based nutrition intrigued him to ask more questions.  Her kindness to help him to begin his education resulted in a remarkable transformation.  In today's world more stories like this should be empahsized.  Justin Lacy is now a lighthouse for others struggling to get their health back.  His focus in on nutriton and health and yes the side effect was over 250 pounds of weight loss.  He is now a runner training for his first half marathon.  It is my pleasure to share with you our chat.   

I believe someday we will understand how the gut microbe participates in some individuals to pack on weight at a much greater rate than others.  It is not a lack of willpower as Justin proved with repeated weight loss and prolonged days of fasting.  Once he was able to get clean fruits and vegetables in his diet things changes.  Perhaps a gradual change in his gut flora was able to help.  Whatever the combinations of mechanisms, timing and support, Justin is achieving optimum health and wellbeing.  Congratulations.  I look forward to following his success.
