One area of focus with Lady Moxy members is fiber and gut health. Why? Because optimizing your gut microbes optimizes whole-body health. And fiber significantly improves gut health. Plant-based, fiber-rich foods— fruit, veggies, whole grains, legumes, beans, nuts and seeds—hold the key to reversing many health issues: weight gain, hormonal imbalances, diabetes, high cholesterol, digestive distress, brain fog, and cancer risk (colon, breast, esophageal).
To understand the important role of fiber in the diet, I turned to Dr. Will Bulsiewicz (Dr. B), the author of Fiber Fueled. Dr. B is a board-certified, award-winning gastroenterologist. As a practicing gastro doc, he uses evidence-based science and studies to back up the guidance he dispenses.
Here’s an informative YouTube video with Dr. B that provides more details.
Although it’s a lengthy discussion (2 hours), you can scroll along the “play bar” to identify the fiber and gut health topics that are of interest.
If you are on an animal-product-heavy diet (Paleo, Keto, Carnivore), be sure to listen to this part of the interview: 1:06:45
