Fiber is the Clark Kent of the nutrition world. Hiding in there is Superman with amazing super powers! This disease-fighting powerhouse can reduce your risk of developing cancer and diabetes, cut food cravings, lower cholesterol, and reduce arthritis risk. And it can help you live longer, too!

But what keeps fiber flying high is its ability to help you lose weight!

Unfortunately, the standard American diet is anything but heroic. In fact, it’s just plain SAD. So, in this episode, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Stephen Neabore, MD, and Lee Crosby, RD, LD, from the Barnard Medical Center to teach you everything you need to know about fiber… and then some!

You’ll also hear the inspirational story of Evan Bass, who transformed his near 300-pound body into a lean, mean running machine! His success is built on hard work, discipline, and a relentless drive to not just live, but to thrive! The conversation between Evan and Chuck, who once weighed 420 pounds, offers new insight into what motivates a person to change and how an inner drive to better yourself can prompt others to strive for a healthier life.
