Wellness: Fact vs. Fiction

Fed Up Fact Check - Debunking Fiber Feuds with Science

Aug. 31, 2022

Can fiber actually cause death? How about heart attacks? Panic attacks? On today’s episode, the fiber queen herself, Dr. Danielle Belardo, and her expert guest registered dietitian, Dr. Kevin Klatt, discuss the scientific evidence around dietary fiber. There is a lot of stir about fiber after the release of Wondery's top podcast, Fed Up, about the phenomenon diet F-Factor, founded by registered dietitian Tanya Zuckerbrot. Danielle and Kevin are on the mic to settle the fiber feud and advise listeners if they really should fear the fiber. Tune in to hear the fiber facts and whether these two doctors will be placing their F-Factor orders anytime soon.     Dr. Kevin C. Klatt, PhD, RD is a nutrition researcher and registered dietitian who provides individualized medical nutrition therapy and health coaching to patients/clients. Dr. Klatt completed his doctoral work in nutrition at Cornell University and his dietetic training at the National Institutes of Health. He is currently a researcher at the Baylor College of Medicine.    Thank you so much for taking the time to contribute to a generation that values fact over fiction! Be sure to rate, review, and follow on your favorite podcast app and let us know which not-so-wellness trend you’d like to hear debunked.
