I am obsessed with fiber and leafy greens, so I’m in good company with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz. He is a Vanderbilt undergrad. He went to Georgetown for medical school and completed his residency at Northwestern. He then followed that up with a fellowship at Chapel Hill. Now he’s a practicing gastro, he’s obsessed with plants and fiber, and he just published an awesome book, “Fiber Fuel: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome.” I finished reading in just one night! Your gut is so involved in every other part of your body, and we get into how you can start taking control of your diet and get on the right path.
