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.

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.    What we discuss in this episode: - Why Dr. B recently left his medical practice - The Exam Room podcast  - What to expect from the Fiber Fueled Cookbook - How the health care system is flawed and why it is a complicated issue - What “leaky gut” is  - What constipation really is and why it’s important  - What GROWTH means to Dr.B - How to poop properly  - How to stop counting grams of fiber, and start counting plants instead  - Questions from the Switch4Good podcast Facebook group  - Visit his website - theplantfedgut.com Connect with Dr. B on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/theguthealthmd/ - Preorder the Fiber Fueled Cookbook - https://theplantfedgut.com/cookbook/ - Use code SWITCH for 25% off your order at MaxinesHeavenly.com - Purality B12 Deal: https://puralityhealth.com/liposomal-b12/ to buy one B12 and get one free plus 35% off the rest of Purality’s products Connect with Switch4Good - YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ2toqAmlQpwR1HDF_KKfGg - Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Switch4Good/ - Podcast Chat Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/podcastchat/ - Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/switch4good/ - Twitter - https://mobile.twitter.com/Switch4GoodNFT - Website - https://switch4good.org/
