  • Summary

  • We know that gut health is important. What and how you eat affects your energy levels, your brain function, how you feel, your work performance, your skin, your weight, how well you age and your long-term health. There isn’t much else in life under your control that has that kind of awesome power and all of these effects start with what happens in the gut.

    At the same time, never before have we been so confused over what we should eat!

    Dr Joanna McMillan cuts through the nonsense, bust the myths and misconceptions and translates the extraordinary emerging science of the gut and the gut-brain link, that explains just how your food choices impact your health and happiness. Each episode explains the everyday science, but also tells you exactly what you should be eating to improve your gut health.

    Dr Joanna McMillan is one of Australia's favourite and most trusted health and wellbeing experts. She is a PhD qualified nutrition scientist and an accredited practising dietitian and has the natural ability to translate complex science into practical actions that will transform theory into achievement.

Fascinating!

I was drawn in by the title and I have purchased books by the author. This is really informative resource to understand the gut. More and more research shows how important gut health is to your overall health. This book is a super interesting listen. And her voice is amazing - could listen to her all day! Would recommend to anyone, whether you think you need to hear it or not. You wont regret it.

Excellent and useful information!

The book covers the role of fibers, legumes, and grains in detail. I particularly liked the balanced approach and explanations about lectins and other foods often maligned out of ignorance.

Extremely informative and very well presented

I have learnt so much, thank you Dr McMillan! It was really interesting and I've listened to all the eposides in less than a week. The narration was done very well and I love the author/narrator's voice and accent. I even laughed out loud a couple of times as the narrator is really humourous and totally draws you in. The information is all built on scientific information by a professional, and explains why some of the fads might be bad for you or which ones is actually good. It was interesting to get to know how my body works from the moment I start a meal and all the processes involved and how it affects my whole body. I will try and look after my microbiome better :)

Mildly interesting

Good for someone new to this healthy eating. Probably first stage of understanding your health and direction you want to go. Too general and doesn’t have specific plans
