EP135: Bloating, IBS and Acid Reflux Can Be Eliminated with a Low-Carb Diet

How gut bacteria feed on simple carbs to create excessive gas.

Have you ever wondered why some foods leave you feeling bloated and gassy? In this episode, Drew asks guest gut health expert, Dr. Norm Robillard, Ph.D. to break down the digestive process and share the important role of bacteria in our bodies. Dr. Robillard spent most of his career researching microbiology for biotech firms. When he began experiencing constant heartburn and acid reflux issues, he turned to a low-carb, keto diet which eliminated his digestive troubles. He has since written several books and founded the Digestive Health Institute and the Fast Tract Diet to help others who suffer from digestive issues.

Join Drew on the Second Annual Fit2Fat2Fit Cruise in October 2018! A 7-day cruise that includes nutritional seminars, workouts, health coaches and keto-friendly meals.
