About the Book

Perhaps, our processed diet coupled with a highly evolved and increasingly digitalised lifestyle has direct bearing on disrupting our metabolism, which is our weight regulator. Tackling obesity then is not just a calories in-calories-out matter—rather it demands a whole person, integrated approach. If you truly want to lose weight and keep it off, you need to eat more bugs—the trillions of helpful bacteria that live in your gut and play a fundamental role in maintaining a healthy and happy body. In this book, you’ll learn: • how simple dietary changes feed the microbiome and regulate the metabolism; • why detoxifying is a key part of resetting your metabolism; • why understanding the stress-microbiome connection is important; and • how diet can be your best probiotic. The author also explains how exercise and focused breathing can improve gut health and shares tips on how to supercharge your success after weight loss surgery. Join the author as he explores the gut microbiome and its overall effects on health, with a particular focus on obesity and weight.
