I had the best time this past fall talking with Suzanne Somers about fiber, poop, digestive health, and what it really means to heal your gut every day with the foods you eat and the supplements you take. Suzanne is as enthusiastic about natural health, healthy weight management, heart health, longevity, immunity, and detoxification as I am. We really got into the guts of digestive health and had a blast doing it.

If you missed any of the shows last year you can catch Suzanne’s best-of show on Wednesday, February 27th at 8:00 a.m. on Lifetime television. These best-of clips include my surprising fiber segment that reveals how to:

  • Reduce the amount of calories you absorb each day by simply adding more fiber to your diet with the fiber flush effect
  • Get enough fiber in your diet (at least 35g daily) without eating 12 apples, or a loaf of bread, or enough salad greens to feed a whole herd of rabbits
  • Beat America’s laxative addiction with the new generation of fiber supplements that aren’t harsh like psyllium, which can cause cramping

Suzanne and I also spent time talking about heart health and inflammation, two big topics in natural health circles today. Heart disease is still the #1 cause of death in the US, yet so many of us don’t realize which foods are triggering the silent inflammation issues that are causing high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol. Silent inflammation is not discussed enough in standard medical circles although it’s a significant contributor to heart disease and you can’t even feel it.

We had some girl talk about keeping that healthy youthful glow as we age and labels. Labels? I mean supplement labels and the fact that most people don’t know how to read them to ensure they’re getting a high potency of omega-3 in their fish oil supplement (and not just “filler” oils), enough probiotics in their probiotic supplement and foods, and the types of fibers in their supplements that promote heart health and detoxification.

You can watch my clips from the show here and don’t forget to tune into The Suzanne Show next Wednesday Feb 27th at 8:00 a.m. for the best-of show that includes my fiber segment.
