Well ladies and gentleboys of the highest order of the dump squad, the day has finally come. The final episode of the Fiber February saga that has inspired millions to consume epic amounts of fiber, debilitating the toilet paper industry and creating a revolution that will define a generation.
You didn’t think we’d let you down, did you?
We are closing our Fiber February with a bang, and dropping a massive BM of an episode, our much anticipated What’s The Deal With Fiber. For those of you new to the podcast, this is the 7th installment in our What’s The Deal series, where we dive deep into the science and the research behind a specific topic in the field of nutrition and lifestyle. In the past, we’ve talked about protein, soy, gluten, and others, and we’re pretty confident that this is our best one yet.
Like we always do, we zoom out to look at the big picture from a population perspective and then zoom back in to find out what’s happening mechanistically with fiber to determine why it’s so beneficial for us and the microbes that live inside of our gut. We talk about everything from chronic disease to the microbiome to fiber for athletes and then of course wax philosophical to discuss how this fits in to the bigger lifestyle. It’s great. It’s long. Grab a notebook and take some notes because you’ll want to remember some of this stuff! So we’ll keep this intro short.
Before we dive in, we just want to say thank you for the love this month. It’s been so much fun, and to be completely honest, we’re pretty sad it’s over. Gotta figure out how to keep it going! Make sure you’re signed up for our Thought For Food Thursday newsletter at tfflifestyle.com/newsletter and follow us on Instagram, YouTube and Facebook (especially our private group) to continue the conversation and learn even more nerdy nutrition science! All the links (including references) are in the show notes below. And keep spreading the epic dump revolution by using #takeepicdumps on social media even when Fiber February is over.
