Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
From #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fast Diet and The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet comes a life-changing look at your gut--home to your "second brain"--and the crucial role it plays in your health and your weight.
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 tiny organisms that influence your mood, your immune system, and even your appetite.
In this groundbreaking 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. Drawing from the latest cutting-edge research, Dr. Mosley provides scientifically proven ways to control your cravings, boost your mood, and lose weight by feeding the "good" bacteria that keep you healthy and lean, while staving off "bad" bacteria that contribute to weight gain and disease.
Dr. Mosley also shares a simple two-phase healing program, an effective way to repair and replenish the microbiome and to ease intestinal distress. Discover how foods like chocolate, red wine, and cheese can be part of a gut-healthy diet; how fasting can strengthen the gut and boost "good" bacteria; how changing your microbiome can undo the damage of yo-yo dieting; and how opening a window (and other simple acts) can improve gut health.
Packed with delicious, healing recipes, meal plans, checklists, and tips, The Clever Gut Diet includes all the tools you need to transform your gut and your health for the rest of your life.
"From #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fast Diet and The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet comes a groundbreaking new book about your gut--known as the "second brain" of the body--that explains how taking care of its good bacteria can lead to optimal health and weight loss. People often joke about "going with their gut" but the truth is that this part of your body exercises an astonishing degree of control over your mood, hunger, and general health. Written with the latest research on the microbiome--the alien bacteria that lives in our guts--The Clever Gut Diet also clearly explains what goes on inside your stomach and intestines every day. Discover up-to-the-date science on hunger hormones and learn how our "second brain" communicates with the rest of the body, shaping our appetite and immune system. Although this is primarily a how-to book, Dr. Mosley uses his own body and experiences as a narrative, sharing his own personal journey of discovery. He explores prebiotics, probiotics, and the impact of antibiotics. The book also includes a comprehensive and delicious menu plan, provided by a leading dietician, which ensures that you will grow only the finest plants in your own internal garden. Finally, you can discover once and for all how to lead a life of optimal weight maintenance, improved physical health, and an overwhelming sense of balance and calm"-- Provided by publisher.
