Description

The DEFINITIVE BOOK on the newest frontier in science, health and diet. Loaded with facts and examples but, above all a practical guide for anyone who wants to fine-tune their body by revolutionising the workings of their gut. Your guts have an astonishing degree of control over your mood, hunger and general health. The Clever Guts Diet is a book that celebrates this hugely under-rated organ and shows you what you need to do to keep it in prime condition. Bestselling author Dr Michael Mosley reveals the latest research into the workings of the microbiome – the kilogram of alien bacteria that live in your gut – and takes a look at exactly what happens inside your stomach and intestines as you go about your daily life. He demonstrates how your gut communicates with your body and mind, and explains why your biome affects your weight, your health and even your happiness. With his renowned aptitude for self-experimentation, Dr Mosley also delves into the science of his own digestive system; he trials a range of diets to ascertain their effects on body shape and blood sugar, and looks at the effects of prebiotics, probiotics and antibiotics. Filled with case studies and practical advice as well as delicious recipes for optimising your biome, The Clever Guts Diet will change how you see your body forever. INCLUDES: • How different diets affect your gut bacteria, your weight and your blood sugar levels. • The definitive low-down on phytonutrients and why they are key to a happy gut. • Why different people react differently to the same foods. • Why red wine and sauerkraut can be good for you. • Why it’s better to have inefficient gut bacteria. • Recipes and meal plans to suit YOUR microbiome devised by UK nutritionist Tanya Borowski * 8 page colour picture section featuring 16 recipes '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 Mosleyshow more

Review quote

Praise for The Clever Guts Diet 'Written by the world's top "gut health guru", Mosely's new book is a balanced and evidence-based account of how it all works. Now the lay person can implement a diet plan and understand why it's going to work.' Nobel Prize winner, Professor Barry Marshall, Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases Research and Training 'The life-changing new plan that'll make you healthier, happier and slimmer.' Daily Mail 'This book contains a very clear summary of the latest research and hopefully will go far to teach the public about our science (for which I am very grateful!).' Dr Nicholas Chia, Microbiome Program, Mayo Institute 'A fascinating journey exploring the gut and its tiny inhabitants. As Michael Mosley points out, we are only just beginning to get to grips with this mysterious world. Do try his pumpkin porridge or purple sauerkraut and examine your gut feelings.' Dr Roy Taylor, Professor of Medicine and Metabolism, Newcastle University (UK) 'Clever Guts is very well researched and well written. I'm a dermatologist with a particular interest in eczema and acne, and this emerging area of research is making us all reconsider how important gut health is and what we can do to optimise it.'

Follow his advice for better gut health.'
