Remarkable Health Benefits of a Fiber-Rich Diet | E76 Megan Barnett & Lee Carson

Remarkable Health Benefits of a Fiber-Rich Diet | E76 Megan Barnett & Lee Carson

I did not know how beneficial fiber was prior to this conversation and I wouldn’t even have been able to tell you fiber was only found in plants.


I’m excited about this episode though. I had a blast researching and preparing for this conversation.


It has been a while since I’ve dug deep into a health-focused subject. Our last was with Dr. Jennifer Reid in August when we talked about sleep, and looking at the numbers, I know you are interested in health topics.


Joining me today on the podcast today are the Co-Founders of Florasophy, an organic soluble fiber supplement.


Megan Barnett and Lee Carson created this company after Megan stumbled across the incredible benefits of soluble fiber and began using it in her functional medicine clinic.


Megan and Lee both believe in a science-based approach to alleviating health issues and focusing on preventive health in order to stay out of the medical system.


Getting adequate daily fiber, particularly soluble fiber, is an easy step someone can take.


If you want to know all the benefits of fiber and what foods you can eat to get to a suitable level, you’re in the right place. We’ll be discussing that plus other health related topics like Megan’s opinion on intermittent fasting and an explanation on what the heck microbiome is.


Key Takeaways:

  • How Lee’s experience with her mom motivated her to stay out of the western medical system and focus on preventive health
  • Why Megan went from “Busch-drinking, cigarette smoking” general contractor to a dietician
  • What is microbiome and gut health?
  • Adding weight training to your weekly routine for a balanced, preventive exercise program
  • What is fiber and why is it beneficial for our health?
  • Using fiber to help with imbalanced hormones
  • How much fiber should you be eating and what should I eat?
  • Who might benefit from intermittent fasting…and who wouldn’t?
  • When should you supplement?
