The Clever Guts Diary
Dr Michael Mosley
Simon & Schuster Australia
“I haven’t felt this good in years.” Sophie, 29, former sufferer of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
Your gut is astonishingly clever. It contains millions of neurons – as many as you would find in the brain of a cat – and is home to the microbiome, an army of microbes that influences your mood, weight and immune system.
In this ground breaking book, Dr Mosley takes us on a revelatory journey through the gut, showing how junk food and overuse of antibiotics have wiped out many “good” gut bacteria, leading to a modern plague of allergies, food intolerances and obesity.
Setting the record straight on everything from prebiotics to probiotics, fermented foods to fasting, Dr Mosley provides scientifically proven ways to control your appetite and boost your mood.
The Clever Guts Diet is packed with delicious, healing recipes, menu plans, checklists and tips – all the tools you need to transform your gut and change the way you eat forever.
“I am one of the few people to have seen their own guts in action, and I can honestly say it was one of the most remarkable and informative experiences of my scientific career. In this book I’ll tell you how your gut makes you who you are, and what you can do about it.” – Dr Michael Mosley.
I am a big fan of Dr Michael Mosley. I like him, I like his style of reporting and documenting science based health information which is presented in clear, easy to read language and is backed by Dr Mosley’s personal scientific experimentation, research and the research of others.
Gut based health is something that I (and my immediate family) are very aware of and very interested in. There is still so much to learn about the gut and its microbiome – this book is an excellent starting point, a useful reference and the recipes are easy to follow and taste delicious. Learn about resistant starches (not all starches are created equal), probiotics, prebiotics, fermented foods and how to re boot your biome and so much more. Gut health is so important to your overall health. Change your gut biome – one delicious meal at a time, change your health.
