ICP 94: Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD
How fiber fuels our gut, our mind and our lives
Welcome to the podcast that’s dedicated to making you healthier by interviewing medical doctors and scholars of lifestyle medicine. This is episode 94** of the Ian Cramer Podcast
In this episode, I am joined, again, by Gastroenterologist Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD. He and I spoke way back in 2018 in Episode 36, and this time around he comes on again to speak about new studies and findings and his new book coming out “Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome"
In our discussion, we talk about how Will’s diet evolved over the years from Hoffman hot dogs and cool-aid as a kid to Brussel sprouts and brown rice as an adult.
We talk about Mood disorders, anxiety, depression and brain health and how the gut plays a role in mental health.
We talk about myths and truths about fibers.
Then we end with talking about we can look at evolution and how studying our ancestors can answer question about gut health and how we should be structuring out diets today.
Dr. B is a thoughtful, humble and genuine person and I’m very happy to bring him to you. Please support him and his book, go pick up a copy. If you appreciate evidence and scientific reasoning, I can’t emphasize it enough. I hope you find this conversation helpful on episode 94 with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz.
