Ep.40 Making Fiber Sexy
Success within diet is not about restriction, it's not about deprivation, it's about creating a mindset where rather than running away from the food that we have demonized and we're supposed to be scared of, rather than constantly running away, let's run towards the food that heals. Let's gravitate towards healing foods.
In this episode, we welcomed one of our favorite world-renowned gastroenterologists and best-selling authors, Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, to discuss the connection between the food we eat and our gut health. He shares his personal health journey and, in line with the Sakara philosophy, he believes in a fibrous and plant-rich diet and breaks down how crucial it is to our overall health. Dr. Bulsiewicz also explains the science behind why all fiber is not created equal and the role feeding our microbes fiber plays in transforming our gut health. He advocates for intuitively eating nourishing, healing foods rather than restricting and dieting. This episode will encourage you to create healthier lifestyle habits such as introducing a greater variety of plants into your diet, exercising, and eating foods that make you feel joyful.
Dr. Bulsiewicz is also the creator of the Plant Fed Gut online course, which is a 7-week educational course to help give people the tools to reverse gut dysbiosis. If you’re interested in learning more about his work, you can sign up for his course [https://theplantfedgut.com/course/].
