The Clever Guts Diet

How to revolutionise your body from the inside out

by Michael Mosley

From the author of the million-copy bestselling 5:2 Fast Diet

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 groundbreaking book, Dr Michael 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.

Filled with case studies, menu plans and practical advice for optimising your biome, The Clever Guts Diet will change how you see your body forever.

With recipes by Tanya Borowski, mBant, IFMCP, and Dr Clare Bailey, GP

 

 

““I am one of the few people to have seen their own guts in action, and it was one of the most remarkable and informative experiences of my 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
