Publisher's Summary

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.

If you care about your health get this book

I have been going out of my way to educate myself on health issues, and use my common sense to make up my own mind since "studies" can't really be trusted, and can be skewed to defend pretty much any health claim.

I've read a ton of health books, and this is in my top 3 favorites. Easy to follow and understand, great info and advice. (Google the author, he has like 8 books, just not on Audible, and lots of solid advice.)

10 stars for performance! Great simple book!

I usually don't care for books narrated by english seaking peoople mainy becuse I can't understand them due to such a thick accents but James nailed it, he is and excellent narrator and so funny. He really brings the gut to life even though i have alotof knowledge already, I have had porblems since my late 20's when they took out my so called un-needed appendix, my life went downhill from there. All I ended up having was Salmonella all needed was a round of antibiotics and back then they didnt do any tests they just took it out. Please listen to me the APPENDIX is a very necessary organ don't ever let anyone tell you anything different. I had 3 bowel movements a day before and thought something was wrong with me. Boy have I learned alot in 35 yrs, Very needed organ, now I have to sandblast it out of me! Sorrry if TMI..... BUT TRUE!

Entertaining and enlightening!

I give additional credit to the author for the entertaining rendition of such a potentially dreadful topic. The narrator did not disappoint either--loved it! I want to find more books narrated by Mr. Gillies, he is a true master at this. I have read other books on this subject and think this one is one of the more concise and straight to the point deliveries of all things microbiome, and to be honest, I was very disappointed it ended! I felt he had more to say, or I just couldn't get enough of the fun narration and the engaging manner in which the book was written, I wanted more. Highly recommend if you're interested in what's going on in your gut and how those functions affect your entire body.

Fascinating nastiness and gory details

I liked hearing about all the details of digestion and understanding more about how it all works. I missed some parts from distractions but overall I learned a lot.

Vulgar storytelling and presumptuous in explaning

It's ok but i wouldn't recommend. What he says he is going to do at the start of the book he falls short by far! could be a 1:30hour audio-book not 4hour, talks about diets that he tells you to go look up witch is what i thought this book would enplane so i don't have top read other books witch just sends you round in circles it's a joke!

Interesting, succinct and practical

This time last year I didn’t know I even had a microbiome. Now, after listening to this and Julia Enders “Guts” I feel like I’ve become an expert on it!

Not looking forward to eating fermented yoghurt or giving up sugar so perhaps I’ll listen to another book on the guts before I start.

Interesting listening though and great narration.

Buy the hard copy

Very informative but there's quite a few references to a free PDF which doesn't translate in an audio book
