    Constipated? These Foods Will Get Things Moving Again | Dr. Will Bulsiewicz Live Q&A

    Being backed up is no fun! So what are the best foods that can help with constipation and get things moving again?
     
    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?

    'They’re Trying to Kill Us’: Inside the Next Big Vegan Documentary

    'They’re Trying to Kill Us’: Inside the Next Big Vegan Documentary

    An inside look at They’re Trying to Kill Us from the creators of the groundbreaking documentary.
     
    John Lewis and Keegan Kuhn join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss the making of the film and the systemic issues that are driving health inequality in the United States.
     
    Why are people of color more likely to die from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer if genetics aren’t the reason? Through interviews with celebrities in hip-hop, medicine, sports, entertainment, and politics, John and Keegan discovered the answer. It is perhaps the most deadly threat to society that mainstream media doesn't want to talk about.
     
    PCRM will receive 50% of proceeds from the film through Nov. 17, 2021.

    Eating Healthy at Restaurants Is Hard, Not Impossible

    Eating Healthy at Restaurants Is Hard, Not Impossible

    Here’s a scary fact. Only 1 out of every 1,000 meals served in restaurants qualifies as having “ideal” nutrition. Even scarier? Portion sizes at fast-food restaurants are three times larger than they were in 1950!
     
    Could it be that our obsession with eating out is actually making us sick and die younger? It may sound extreme, but given all of the fat, salt, sugar, and sodium being served, it is fair to wonder whether what you order is taking years off of your life.
     
    Dr. Vanita Rahman and Matthew Rees, editor of the Food and Health Facts newsletter and senior fellow at the Dartmouth Tuck School of Business, have the facts to back up that argument. They make the case that restaurants are playing an enormous role in the obesity epidemic when they join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll. From an abundance of calories to a lack of fiber, they have the true effect of restaurant food covered from all angles!
     
    Plus, Chuck is joined by restaurateur Gregg Rozeboom, who is bucking the trend of enormous burgers and buckets of fries in favor of healthier options. Gregg is the founder of the plant-based oil-free restaurant chain Fruitive. He shares his philosophy that delicious food does not have to be detrimental to your health. Fruitive is proof that when it comes to healthy food, if you serve it, they will come.
