Dr. Greg Feinsinger on Exercise and Fueling a WFPB Active Lifestyle
Just 1 Thing (at a time) 4 Health
“Because changing habits and lifestyle is daunting without support.”
WEEK 21 – EXERCISE AND FUELING A WFPB ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
Featured Doctor: Greg Feinsinger, MD
Dr. Greg Feinsinger practiced family medicine in Glenwood Springs, Colorado for over 40 years. He was introduced to the plant-based lifestyle for personal and for patient reasons about a decade ago. Now and throughout his retirement, Dr. Feinsinger’s interests are around the prevention of diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes. He still counsels individuals about the health benefits of a plant-based, low fat diet and encourages them to consider this as an important part of their prevention and treatment plan, along with exercise.
Dr. Feinsinger writes a weekly article for one of his local newspapers, often does lectures in his local area, and he is about to launch his first book about how to enjoy optimal health. (Stay tuned for more about the upcoming book launch.)

This week, we want you to get to know
Dr. Michael Greger
Physician, Author, Founding Member and Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, a Licensed General Practitioner specializing in clinical nutrition and creator of NutritionFacts.org
In his lectures, videos and writings about nutrition, Dr. Greger works to persuade people to change their eating habits from a Western pattern diet to a whole foods, plant-based diet. It is this shift, he says, that can help prevent and reverse a host of chronic diseases.
It is because of this that he is critical of other doctors for not encouraging their patients to adopt plant-based diets and avoid animal-based products, and the US government for giving watered down advice about healthy eating in a bid to protect the economic interests of nutritionally unhealthy food producers.
Dr. Greger is dedicated to bypassing health middlemen and delivering important, and often lifesaving, information straight to the public. “With the democratization of information, doctors no longer hold a monopoly as gatekeepers of knowledge about health,” Dr. Greger writes in his book, “I’m realizing it may be more effective to empower individuals directly.”
