In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with one of our fave gut doctors, Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, who is back to talk about fiber in all its sexy glory. You will be astonished to hear some of the facts and figures he shares about gut health, overall health and the lack of fiber North Americans are getting. Do we talk about poop? Well, when don’t we? You will have to share this with others so they learn about short-chain fatty acids, lectins, sugars, and F-goals(ss).
Will Bulsiewicz, MD, MCSI is a board-certified, award-winning gastroenterologist and the author of the plant-based gut health book Fiber Fueled. He’s a graduate of Georgetown University School of Medicine and was a chief medical resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and chief gastroenterology fellow at the University of North Carolina Hospitals. He’s authored more than twenty articles in the top American gastroenterology journals and has been featured in Shape, Women’s Health, Men’s Health, and on HuffPost. He lives in Charleston, South Carolina, with his wife and two children.
