From Bloated & Tired to Plant-Fed Powerhouse
It wasn’t that long ago that my health and quality of life looked a lot different than it does today. I was in my early thirties, though I felt much older, and although I was doing my gastroenterology fellowship, I had a slew of my own digestive issues. A few spoonfuls of beans or whole-wheat pasta, for example, would set off waves of crippling abdominal pains, gas, and my insides felt a distended balloon. I’d toss and turn at night with stomach pains, feeling hungover the next day from lost sleep.
Back in those days, my solution was to avoid the issue. (Sound familiar?) I didn’t want to acknowledge that the food I was eating might be the problem. There were too many Philly cheesesteaks and Italian cold cut subs to inhale for me to miss the beans and whole grains. They certainly weren’t required for my tater tots.
I was 50lbs overweight with a saggy gut hanging over my belly. It was sobering. This was not the person I remembered from years past. I’d always thought of myself as an athlete, but the blood pressure pills sitting on the sink were a harsh reminder of how much had changed. I was anxious and depressed. I had low self-esteem and low energy. I was addicted to unhealthy food and the fleeting joy it brought me.
I didn't know how to fix myself. I had elite training from institutions like Vanderbilt, Georgetown, and Northwestern, but the pills and procedures in my toolbox weren't going to correct the problem I was facing.
What I came to understand was that I needed to fix my gut to fix my problems. And, when I did, I not only felt better, I was able to restore function. Not only could I eat a few scoops of beans or a bowl of pasta without pain, I actually became capable of eating them without restriction. I no longer had to fear my food. I knew how to become an even healthier version of the person I used to be.
The science-based research surrounding how our gut microbes affect every system in our body, and the fuel we feed it being the best course of action for preventing chronic medical issues, is our roadmap to optimal health. I've made it my life's mission to teach what I know and share the science in a digestible way so that others can make empowered decisions about their health.
That's what you'll find inside The Plant Fed Gut Masterclass.

Learn The Root Causes of Gut Dysbiosis
We all have a personal gut story. What’s yours? In this course, we will figure out what parts of your past are contributing to the gut issues that you’re experiencing today. You can’t fix your gut if you don’t understand where the problem started!
Find Your Diagnosis
You can’t properly know how to treat if you don’t know what you’re treating. You will get the education that you need to create an action plan that leads you to your diagnosis. We’ve had numerous participants uncover something that their doctor hadn’t thought of.
Understand Food Sensitivities
You’ve been told they are irreversible, that you should just eliminate the food and move on. This is flat out wrong! They are reversible, and this course will teach you the methodology to get those foods back on the plate and start enjoying them again.
Optimize Your Gut Microbiome
Your gut connects to your digestion and nutrient absorption, immune system, inflammation, your weight balance, hormones and even mood and brain function. Whether you are sick and healthy, we all need to pay attention to our gut in order to achieve the radiant health that we deserve.
Create a Lifestyle That Heals
Your gut mirrors your diet and lifestyle, meaning that when you eat the right food and properly organize your life you will optimize your gut microbiome and in the process enjoy a cascade of health benefits that come with that.

Guts & Plants & Microbiome (Oh My!)
Let's dive into the microbiome to understand the concepts of gut health, dysbiosis, and the microbes. These foundational elements form the basis for understanding how to heal.

You’ll understand the difference between a food sensitivity vs. allergy. We’ll identify the tests to take to address your symptoms and issues so that you can develop a plan for how to navigate the system to find your true diagnosis.

This is about understanding how you got to where you are. What’s your gut health story? We’re going to define it this week and use that information as we move forward to address the root of our issues.

Joining The Plant Fed Gut Masterclass comes along with plenty of perks, and Dr. B’s Digestible Guide to Plant Points is one of them! If you’re not yet familiar, Plant Points are a fun way to meet my golden rule of getting more plants into your daily diet. Because as we all know by now (hopefully!), more plants equals more health.
You’ll learn what Plant Points are, how much plant makes up a point, what counts/doesn’t count as a Plant Point, answers to the most commonly asked questions about Plant Points, and you’ll get some handy worksheets helping you track just how much plant diversity you’re getting into your diet on a daily and weekly basis. I even whipped up a little challenge to go along with your sheets because who doesn't love a good challenge?!

How is The Plant Fed Gut Masterclass Different From the Fiber Fueled books?
Both Fiber Fueled and The Fiber Fueled Cookbook are excellent starting points to establish the core tenets of gut health, but they are not intended to provide comprehensive education on the topic. The Plant Fed Gut Masterclass is a complete education, delivered over 7 weeks using videos and a workbook prepared by Dr. B over the course of a year. Additionally, the course will feature 27 exclusive recipes not found in either book.
WHAT’S IT LIKE LEARNING FROM DR. B?
I just want to say, this is my 3rd online health related course that I am doing and by far the BEST! Dr. B, your course is amazing, easy to digest, extremely informative and helpful. Wish I had taken the course sooner. You and your team have done such a wonderful job on the lesson plans & it shows that you dedicated a lot of time to ensure your students benefits from all the lessons. Wish more doctors cared about their patients and educating people the way you clearly do.
Dr. B. has a way of taking difficult to comprehend science and make it understandable. He is very down to earth, personable, and genuine. The Plant Fed Life Course was exactly what I needed to gain the confidence to pursue healing through both modern medicine and a plant-based diet.
This was a really great course! I am still improving my own Gut Health, and I feel much more hopeful about navigating the Healthcare system! I also learned a lot from Dr B. over the years, even leading up to this course. For instance, he inspired me to start taking prebiotic fibers, quit drinking and to go fully plant based! This course really cemented those decisions and went really deep into just how bio-individual everyone's gut/microbiome is! Also, as a newly Certified Health Coach who wants to help people with gut issues, this was like an amazing supplemental add-on to my education. I love that this is all based in real science (not test tube studies) ! A+ Course for anyone who wants to repair their gut or share this knowledge with others who need help!
I am so, so thankful I joined this Masterclass. The absolute best investment I've made in myself. Thank you, Dr. B, and to all the guest speakers!
I just have to say THANK YOU times a MILLION!!! I am addicted to this course and your teaching style and enthusiasm in educating us, sharing your sights and engaging this community!! These videos knocked it out of the park for me, I wish everyone in the world could hear them. There aren't words to express my gratitude.
For anyone dealing with gut health issues, I would highly recommend taking Dr B's course. His knowledge and compassion towards everything gut related is evident throughout each lesson and there are a lot of valuable takeaways to start the road to gut health recovery.
Being part of this course has been one of the most inspiring and informative journeys I have been on. Dr. B is extraordinary — his passion, his knowledge, his research and his interest in helping us all enjoy better health is so evident in all that he does. I'm so grateful I found my way to this community!

Hey! I'm Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD MSCI
(Pronounced Bull-Suh-Wits)-But You Can Just Call Me Dr. B.
You may know me as @TheGutHealthMD. I’m the New York Times bestselling author of Fiber Fueled and The Fiber Fueled Cookbook. An award winning gastroenterologist, and an internationally recognized gut health expert.
I’ve dedicated my life to learning how to heal the gut from the inside out.
I completed a bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University, an MD from Georgetown University, and a master’s in clinical investigation from Northwestern University.
I was also the chief medical resident at Northwestern and the chief gastroenterology fellow at UNC, and I received the highest award given by both my residency and fellowship.
I created this course so that YOU could begin the life-changing journey of healing your gut. I’ve cared for thousands of real people suffering with chronic digestive disorders. I get them better, but I always wish we could sit down for a long conversation and I would teach them everything I know. Now, FINALLY, I have a way to have that conversation with you, whether you are my patient or not. This is for the people seeking complete knowledge on gut health, who want to go beyond the book for complete understanding.
I’m honored to be your teacher and I hope you enjoy the training!
