Summary

A bold new plant-based plan that challenges popular keto and paleo diets, from an award-winning gastroenterologist.

The benefits of restrictive diets like paleo and keto have been touted for more than a decade, but as renowned gastroenterologist Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, or "Dr. B", illuminates in this groundbreaking audiobook, the explosion of studies on the microbiome makes it abundantly clear that elimination diets are in fact hazardous to our health. What studies clearly now show - and what Dr. B preaches with his patients - is that gut health is the key to boosting our metabolism, balancing our hormones, and taming the inflammation that causes a host of diseases. And the scientifically proven way to fuel our guts is with dietary fiber from an abundant variety of colorful plants. 

Forget about the fiber your grandmother used to take - the cutting-edge science on fiber is incredibly exciting. As Dr. B explains, fiber energizes our gut microbes to create powerhouse postbiotics called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that are essential to our health. SCFAs are scientifically proven to promote weight loss, repair leaky gut, strengthen the microbiome, optimize the immune system, reduce food sensitivities, lower cholesterol, reverse type 2 diabetes, improve brain function, and even prevent cancer. Restrictive fad diets starve the gut of the critical fiber we need, weaken the microbes, and make our system vulnerable. 

As a former junk-food junkie, Dr. B knows firsthand the power of fiber to dramatically transform our health. The good news is that our guts can be trained. Fiber-rich, real foods - with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes - start working quickly and maintain your long-term health, promote weight loss, and allow you to thrive and feel great from the inside out.

With a 28-day jump-start program with menus and more than 65 recipes, along with essential advice on food sensitivities, Fiber Fueled offers the blueprint to start turbocharging your gut for lifelong health today. 

Includes a PDF of recipes and shopping lists.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Unnecessary information

This book could be a lot shorter. The author continues to use technical long words to increase the length of the book. The important information could be provided in less than two hours. The book Digestive Wellness by Elizabeth Lipski was much more comprehensive.

Great info & great performance

I was particularly impressed with the reading/performance of this book. Much better than most. Pronunciations, tone, and cadence were all well above average, which makes the content more accessable and enjoyable. The information within was solid and reminded me of Joel Fuhrman a lot, but the author's particular focus on gut health made it different enough from Fuhrman to hold independent interest. Well done.

Excellent resource to a diverse microbiome

This book provided a lot of information based on research Dr B has done in his extensive medical experience. Also based on his own personal experience, he gives a convincing argument for a diverse plant based fiber fueled eating lifestyle that I will try to implement!

Doctor B is an outrageous nerd. I loved the book

Doctor B knows his stuff. He is not only extremely well informed about the gut but he conveys the information 100% in his book. Hearing him tell his own story cinches the deal. Absolutely everyone should either read or listen to every word if they want optimum health. The Narrator was absolutely excellent and conveyed Dr. B's enthusiasm excellently. Loved it all. I am feeling better and better every day.

High expectations

There is some good in this book but I kind of had hoped that it would go more into how to transition into a vegetarian diet. It just gave the tired old go slow advice. The end of the book got boring and I could not finish it. The narrator has a lot of enthusiasm but he doesn't really have a full quiver to work with. I would have preferred a slightly more organized approach. The PDF has a shopping list and the first week is an explosion of vegetables etc. For someone like me, who is trying to transition, it would be too much for me to handle.

Life Changing

This book is awesome. Dr. B, breaks down the information in a manner that is easy to follow. My favorite chapter was about the prebiotics and probiotics. I had so many questions answered regarding the use of those supplements. I am looking forward to the fiber fueled 4 weeks jump start.
