Powerlifter Patrik Baboumian holds astounding weightlifting records (he can lift nearly 1,000 pounds!) and was named Germany’s Strongest Man in 2011 and he joins The Doctors to share how a plant-based diet changed his life.
Before going vegan, he was a vegetarian and was eating animal products like eggs and dairy. Patrik explains he stopped eating all animal products after grappling with how the animals used for these foods were being treated and raised.
Patrik says the switch from vegetarian to vegan actually improved his health. Before going vegan he dealt with chronic iron deficiency, but after we went plant-based this changed. He says his dairy intake was blocking how his body processed and absorbed iron. He tells The Doctors that even when taking an iron supplement he was still not absorbing enough, and he attributes the issue to his amount of daily dairy.
Dr. Travis Stork says Patrik's issue highlights the nutritional concept of, "It's not what you take, it's what you absorb."
The powerlifter -- who reveals when he's competing eats up to 7,000 calories a day -- encourages our viewers to "eat your beans!" which are not only affordable, they are also nutritious and protein-packed.
