The instant New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher's Weekly bestseller A bold new plant-based plan that challenges popular keto and paleo diets, from an award-winning gastroenterologist. The benefits of restrictive diets like paleo and keto have been touted for more than a decade, but as renowned gastroenterologist Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, or "Dr. B," illuminates in this groundbreaking book, the explosion of studies on the microbiome makes it abundantly clear that elimination diets are in fact hazardous to our health. What studies clearly now show--and what Dr. B preaches with his patients--is that gut health is the key to boosting our metabolism, balancing our hormones, and taming the inflammation that causes a host of diseases. And the scientifically proven way to fuel our guts is with dietary fiber from an abundant variety of colorful plants. Forget about the fiber your grandmother used to take--the cutting-edge science on fiber is incredibly exciting. As Dr. B explains, fiber energizes our gut microbes to create powerhouse postbiotics called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that are essential to our health. SCFAs are scientifically proven to promote weight loss, repair leaky gut, strengthen the microbiome, optimize the immune system, reduce food sensitivities, lower cholesterol, reverse type 2 diabetes, improve brain function, and even prevent cancer. Restrictive fad diets starve the gut of the critical fiber we need, weaken the microbes, and make our system vulnerable. As a former junk-food junkie, Dr. B knows firsthand the power of fiber to dramatically transform our health. The good news is that our guts can be trained. Fiber-rich, real foods--with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes--start working quickly and maintain your long-term health, promote weight loss, and allow you to thrive and feel great from the inside out. With a 28-day jumpstart program with menus and more than 65 recipes, along with essential advice on food sensitivities, Fiber Fueled offers the blueprint to start turbocharging your gut for lifelong health today.

The groundbreaking science behind the surprising source of good health Stanford University’s Justin and Erica Sonnenburg are pioneers in the most exciting and potentially transformative field in the entire realm of human health and wellness, the study of the relationship between our bodies and the trillions of organisms representing thousands of species to which our bodies play host, the microbes that we collectively call the microbiota. The microbiota interacts with our bodies in a number of powerful ways; the Sonnenburgs argue that it determines in no small part whether we’re sick or healthy, fit or obese, sunny or moody. The microbiota has always been with us, and in fact has coevolved with humans, entwining its functions with ours so deeply, the Sonnenburgs show us, humans are really composite organisms having both microbial and human parts. But now, they argue, because of changes to diet, antibiotic over-use, and over-sterilization, our gut microbiota is facing a “mass extinction event,” which is causing our bodies to go haywire, and may be behind the mysterious spike in some of our most troubling modern afflictions, from food allergies to autism, cancer to depression. It doesn’t have to be this way. The Good Gut offers a new plan for health that focuses on how to nourish your microbiota, including recipes and a menu plan. In this groundbreaking work, the Sonnenburgs show how we can keep our microbiota off the endangered species list and how we can strengthen the community that inhabits our gut and thereby improve our own health. The answer is unique for each of us, and it changes as you age. In this important and timely investigation, the Sonnenburgs look at safe alternatives to antibiotics; dietary and lifestyle choices to encourage microbial health; the management of the aging microbiota; and the nourishment of your own individual microbiome. Caring for our gut microbes may be the most important health choice we can make.

From one of today’s leading experts on the emerging science of the microbiome comes a ground-breaking book that offers, for the first time, evidence that the gut-microbiome plays a pivotal role in the health crises of the twenty-first century. In his acclaimed book, The Mind-Gut Connection, physician, UCLA professor, and researcher Dr. Emeran Mayer offered groundbreaking evidence of the critical role of the microbiome in neurological and cognitive health, proving once and for all the power and legitimacy of the “mind-body connection.” Now, in The Gut-Immune Connection, Dr. Mayer proposes an even more radical paradigm shift: that the gut microbiome is at the center of virtually every disease that defines our 21st-century public health crisis. Cutting-edge research continues to advance our understanding of the function and impact of the billions of organisms that live in the GI tract, and in Dr. Mayer’s own research, he has amassed evidence that the “conversation” that takes place between these microbes and our various organs and bodily systems is critical to human health. When that conversation goes awry, we suffer, often becoming seriously ill. Combining clinical experience with up-to-the-minute science, The Gut-Immune Connection offers a comprehensive look at the link between alterations to the gut microbiome and the development chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, as well as susceptibility to infectious diseases like Covid-19. Dr. Mayer argues that it’s essential we understand the profound and far-reaching effects of gut health and offers clear-cut strategies to reverse the steady upward rise of these illnesses, including a model for nutrition to support the microbiome. But time is running out: a plague of antimicrobial resistance is only a few decades away if we don’t make critical changes to our food supply, including returning to sustainable practices that maintain the microbial diversity of the soil. To turn the tide of chronic and infectious disease tomorrow, we must shift the way we live today.

You are just 10% human. For every one of the cells that make up the vessel that you call your body, there are nine impostor cells hitching a ride. You are not just flesh and blood, muscle and bone, brain and skin, but also bacteria and fungi. Over your lifetime, you will carry the equivalent weight of five African elephants in microbes. You are not an individual but a colony. Until recently, we had thought our microbes hardly mattered, but science is revealing a different story, one in which microbes run our bodies and becoming a healthy human is impossible without them. In this riveting, shocking, and beautifully written book, biologist Alanna Collen draws on the latest scientific research to show how our personal colony of microbes influences our weight, our immune system, our mental health, and even our choice of partner. She argues that so many of our modern diseases—obesity, autism, mental illness, digestive disorders, allergies, autoimmunity afflictions, and even cancer—have their root in our failure to cherish our most fundamental and enduring relationship: that with our personal colony of microbes. Many of the questions about modern diseases left unanswered by the Human Genome Project are illuminated by this new science. And the good news is that unlike our human cells, we can change our microbes for the better. Collen's book is a revelatory and indispensable guide. It is science writing at its most relevant: life—and your body—will never seem the same again.

Through a lifetime of chronic medical ailments, including severe digestive issues, recurrent infections and, most devastatingly, a battle with thyroid cancer, there was never a point when Tana felt consistently healthy.

Summary of Fiber Fueled Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome is a book that takes on the popular keto and paleo diets that are so prevalent in our society today. Will Bulsiewicz, a gastroenterologist and gut health expert, explores the theory that it is good gut health that is the key to boosting our metabolism and keeping us healthy and free of diseases. He rubbishes restrictive diets and calls them potentially dangerous. The book promotes healthy ways to improve gut health by more intake of dietary fiber from plant-based resources, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes. The book itself is divided into three parts, each discussing a different issue. In the first part, Bulsiewicz talks about how digestive issues such as heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, etc. are endemic in modern culture. All of these point to one thing: gut health. All humans have trillions of gut microbes that encompass hundreds of different species. This diversity in the gut microbial system is extremely important for overall human health. Since these microbes live in the intestines, they all play a key part in digestion. Each species thrives on different types of food, and this is where a balanced and healthy diet becomes important. To choose the bacteria that will keep you healthy, you need to eat food that will activate them. Bulsiewicz goes further and claims that this knowledge will also help with immune diseases. Bulsiewicz points out that more than 72 percent of Americans are overweight and more and more people are resorting to medicines for lifestyle diseases. Most young people have become increasingly sedentary, more so than the previous generations, and are also eating very differently than at any other time in human history. Suddenly, the microbes that evolved together with humans also have to adapt. Sugar, refined carbohydrates, salt, chemical preservatives, additives, colorants, artificial sweeteners, unhealthy fats, and excessive animal proteins are creating modern dietary trends that are extremely unhealthy. To combat all these problems, Bulsiewicz advises increasing fiber intake. However, it is not enough to just bring fiber into the diet. What makes for a truly healthy diet is to ensure that there is a diversity of plants in your diet. The author recommends at least thirty different plants each week. Each plant has its own unique mix of nutrients that offer the human body a variety of benefits. In addition to fiber, plant-based foods also provide phytochemicals which have healing properties and can prevent diseases like cancer and autoimmune diseases. The author also talks about the golden rule of diet: “Eat the rainbow”. This means eating a variety of plant-based foods in different colors as each color represents a different phytochemical, with different healing properties. Eating two plants together also provides a synergic effect. Here is a Preview of What You Will Get: ⁃ A Full Book Summary ⁃ An Analysis ⁃ Fun quizzes ⁃ Quiz Answers ⁃ Etc. Get a copy of this summary and learn about the book.

If you’ve ever dieted, you’ve undoubtedly worked very hard to achieve results--only to experience the disappointment of having the pounds creep back on. But now wellness expert Kathy Freston lets readers in on her secret: losing weight doesn’t have to be difficult, and it can last. With this book she shares the powerful concept of The Lean--a radically effective approach to positive change--with a practical 30-day plan to transform your health and jump-start weight loss in the most gentle, easy, and automatic way possible. “Leaning in” is about setting an intention for what you want, weight- and health-wise, and then nudging yourself ever so gently in that direction, even if getting there seems impossible. It’s about choosing to eat foods that are delicious, filling, and supportive of your goals. Each day of the scientifically based, vegan-friendly Lean plan, Kathy shows how to make and commit to small diet and lifestyle changes that, over time, yield unexpectedly significant results--something as simple as swapping in nondairy milk for cow’s milk, eating an apple a day, or having an afternoon power shake. These changes propel you almost effortlessly into a forward momentum of ever more healthy choices, and work together to bolster your progress. There are only two rules: 1. All you need is the willingness to take just one step. 2. As you add the healthier foods to your diet, eat the new foods first. By gradually adding in these nutrient-dense and fiber-rich foods, you’ll crowd out the problem foods, feel fuller for longer, and simply stop feeling cravings. On Kathy’s Lean plan, readers can experience sustained, healthy, and permanent weight loss of 1-3 pounds per week--plus increased energy, improved digestion, clearer skin, and renewed purpose. Complete with exercises, recipes, and powerful testimonials, The Lean offers not only a truly leaner frame, but also the little push we all need to get on the path to lasting change.

Our biology is no longer destiny. Our genes respond to everything we do, according to the revolutionary new science of epigenetics. In other words, our inherited DNA doesn’t rigidly determine our health and disease prospects as the previous generation of geneticists believed. Especially in the last ten years, scientists have confirmed that the vast majority of our genes are actually fluid and dynamic. An endless supply of new studies prove that our health is an expression of how we live our lives—that what we eat and think and how we handle daily stress, plus the toxicity of our immediate environment—creates an internal biochemistry that can actually turn genes on or off. Managing these biochemical effects on our genome is the new key to radiant wellness and healthy longevity. Now gaining broad credibility among scientists, the study of epigenetics is at the forefront of modern medicine. According to the author, the real upshot of the epigenetic revolution is that it opens the door to what futurists call personalized medicine. For the first time in a trade book, Dr. Pelletier explains in layperson’s language the genetic biomarkers that will become the standard reference for measuring which specific lifestyle changes are required to optimize a given individual’s health. In the very near future, each person’s state-of-the-art genetic and epigenetic profile—matched with other precise indicators such as assays of the gut microbiome—will guide their daily health practices. This short but profound book by a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine introduces readers to this exciting new field, and reveals the steps that each of us can take today to change our genetic expression and thereby optimize our health for a lifetime.

Ihr Wohlbefinden wohnt im Darm! Will Bulsiewicz, preisgekrönter Mediziner und Gastroenterologe präsentiert mit DEIN BAUCH MACHT DICH GESUND einen wissenschaftlich fundierten, revolutionären und pflanzenbasierten Plan für Darmgesundheit und absolutes Wohlbefinden, der sowohl seine eigene Gesundheit als auch die Gesundheit von Hunderten seiner Patienten verändert hat. Wie der renommierte Gastroenterologe Will Bulsiewicz - oder einfach "Dr. B." für seine Patienten - in diesem bahnbrechenden Buch darlegt, macht die explosionsartige Zunahme von Studien über das Mikrobiom überdeutlich, dass Eliminierungsdiäten tatsächlich gesundheitsschädlich sind. Studien zeigen es jetzt absolut eindeutig - und Dr. B. predigt es seinen Patienten: Die Darmgesundheit ist der Schlüssel, um unseren Stoffwechsel anzukurbeln, unsere Hormone ins Gleichgewicht zu bringen und Entzündungen zu zähmen, die eine Vielzahl von Krankheiten hervorrufen. Und der wissenschaftlich erwiesene Weg, unseren Darm anzuheizen, sind Ballaststoffe aus einer Vielzahl von bunten Pflanzen. Vergessen Sie die Ballaststoff-Nahrungsergänzungsmittel, die Ihre Großmutter vielleicht zu sich nahm - die topaktuelle Wissenschaft über Ballaststoffe ist ein unglaublich aufregender Krimi. Die Ballaststoffe regen unsere Darmmikroben dazu an, kraftvolle Postbiotika namens kurzkettige Fettsäuren (SCFAs) zu bilden, die für unsere Gesundheit unerlässlich sind. Es ist wissenschaftlich erwiesen, dass SCFAs die Gewichtsabnahme fördern, einen undichten Darm reparieren, das Mikrobiom stärken, das Immunsystem optimieren, Nahrungsmittelunverträglichkeiten verringern, den Cholesterinspiegel senken, Typ-2-Diabetes umkehren, die Gehirnfunktion verbessern und sogar Krebs vorbeugen. Restriktive Modediäten hungern den Darm nach den lebensnotwendigen Faserstoffen aus, schwächen die Mikroben und machen unser System verwundbar. Die Folge: vermeidbare Krankheiten, Gewichtszunahme und eine sich selbst verstärkende Abwärtsspirale. Mit dem 28-Tage-Programm starten Sie in einen neuen gesunden Ernährungsalltag, der die volle Vielfalt köstlicher veganer und vegetarischer Rezepte auf Ihren Teller bringt.
