Dr. Will Bulsiewicz reveals the best options when he joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room.

Dr. Bulsiewicz also answers viewer questions sent to The Doctor’s Mailbag:

  • Can protein powder cause constipation?
  • Can eating too much fiber make you constipated?
  • How does oil affect digestion?
  • Should a healthy poop float or sink?
  • And many more

Plus, Dr. B shares a recipe for an incredible three-ingredient plant-based version of a Snicker’s bar from his best-selling book, Fiber Fueled! All you need is a couple of dates, a nut butter, and vegan chocolate chips.

Chuck also reports on a study that finds seniors who eat a plant-based diet take less medicine than those eating a traditional diet.
