The Doctors Takes to the Streets
Comedian and actor Loni Love takes questions from fans at Pink's Hot Dogs in Los Angeles.
Fast Food Fury
“I’d much rather you go home and make yourself a cheeseburger with lean ground beef that’s grass-fed to avoid all the hormones and antibiotics that are in the restaurant’s meat,” Jillian advises. “I don’t want you eating a bleached bun that’s full of enriched flour."
While Jillian reveals she doesn’t mind indulging every once in a while, she says that fast food is not real food. “This is poison. This will kill you,” she says.
“You have to pay attention to what you’re eating,” Dr. Travis adds. “The more good things you put in your body, the better your body is going to respond.”
Surprise Celebrity Guest

When Nature Calls
“Every time I go out to eat, I can barely make the short drive home without feeling like I’m going to have an accident,” a viewer confesses. “I’ve had way too many close calls. Why does this happen? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?”
Certain foods or medications can cause bowel urgency. When it comes to kids, pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears encourages keeping a “poo journal” to keep track of what your child eats throughout the day. If he or she experiences an emergency, you can look back at the journal, determine what’s causing it, and remove it from his or her diet. Remembering what you've eaten before experiencing bowel urgency can help you adjust your diet and better control your digestive system.
“Regular bowel movements are better than no bowel movements,” Dr. Travis says. “We all have certain triggers.”
