book of the week - Liz Earle's The Good Gut Guide
4 May 2017

Book of the week, Liz Earle's The Good Gut Guide- out this weekend already getting lots of media attention, I chatted to liz on the phone this week and will be doing some kind of joint broadcast on Facebook live at some point with her at the end of June, it will be great fun. Go here to read more about her new book. I have said for ages it is vindication for my belief that the body knows what it needs. I just didn't know why. When I discovered Giulia Enders ‘Gut’ book about a year and a half ago, that's when I knew things were more complicated and fascinating than I ever believed possible. This helps to not only explain why gut bacteria are so important but also how to eat right for your own gut. Part cookbook, part help guide, it is a wonderful life-changing book especially if you know nothing about this topic. The micro biome, the home of all the gut bacteria, has been called the new frontier in modern medicine. And I believe that is true. Just Google BrainMaker by Dr David Perlmutter and you will see some of the links between the gut and ailments in the body.

I'm so thrilled Liz has now joined the wonderful band of experts trying to educate people about the importance of pre- and pro-biotics (and I don't mean solely those yogurt things that only have one or two types of bacteria in them). It's already getting rave reviews too.

Delicious recipes and the ultimate wellbeing plan for a healthy gut in 6 weeks.

'A better gut means better health. It really is that simple. And it works at every level of the body, as friendly microbes affect not only the digestion of our food but also brain health, mood, emotions, energy levels, ageing, weight loss and so much more. Understanding this can give us the blueprint for a longer, happier, healthier life.'

Liz Earle, MBE is one of the world's most respected and trusted authorities on wellbeing. Following on from her popular 6-week guide Skin, Liz now reveals a brand-new plan to detox, cleanse and nourish the digestive system to improve your inner health and outer beauty.

Packed with the latest science and beautifully illustrated throughout, The Good Gut Guide provides practical advice on pre- and probiotics, fermented foods and how best to address your individual needs and goals - whether these be specific to life stage, a long-standing health issue or weight loss.

An expert in feel-good food and eating well to look your best, Liz also shares 80 nutritious recipes - including many suitable for vegetarians - to help you achieve wellbeing from within.

one five star review says -

"I was so excited to get my hands on this book, and I certainly wasn't disappointed - it is beautiful! A lovely bright green and lots of gorgeous glossy pages. The 6-week plan is broken down in easy-to-read chunks, and there are so many mouth-watering recipes! The chocolate mini bites are top of my to-try list. Thank you Liz for another stunning book!"
