Our guest today, Will Bulsiewicz, also known as Dr. B, is a gastroenterologist who is also the author of the books Fiber Fueled and The Fiber Fueled Cookbook. He lost more than 45 pounds when he switched to a plant-based diet and now has his own patients take control of their health, and reverse their own digestive problems, by following his fiber-fueled prescriptions. We first talked to Dr. B in 2020 when he was about to release his first book Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome. During our first episode together he was nervous about how well it would do in a pandemic. Not to our surprise, it very quickly became a New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller. Today we talked to Dr. B about The Exam Room podcast, how to poop properly, and what to expect from the Fiber Fueled Cookbook that is soon to be released. He also answers important health, gut, and fiber questions taken from our Switch4Good Podcast Facebook group. He believes that all health starts in the gut, and we are honored to have him back on the show to explore exactly what that means.
