Alana and Lisa Macfarlane have spent the past few years interviewing tons of gut experts: scientists, academics, chefs and foodies to get the real scoop and science behind what we eat. We now know how important the gut is to our health and wellbeing, including its impact on our i...mmune system and on diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and even mental health, but The Gut Stuff arms the reader with practical knowledge and tangible tips - both lifestyle and dietary - so they can make easy, but life-changing decisions. The book includes: What is gut health and why is it so relevant today? Back to school - learning the political and social landscape and the biology of our guts The science behind mind and body and how it is linked (Meet Your Gut) - including the gut and its effect on Sleep, Anxiety, Immunity, Skin What can you do to improve your gut health? Delve deeper - supplements, bloating, stool chart, most common gut problems Food section including information on: Variety and Fibre; Hydration; Mindful Chewing; Simple Swaps; In and out your store cupboard; What to add to your fridge; How to best use your freezer; 'I wanna make it' - sauerkraut, kefir and kombucha Features that will pop up in each section: The Takeaway - Little graphic of a takeaway box that pulls out the most useful fact from that section Ask the Expert - Guest writer that delves deeper into one area The Myth Busting Box to Trust - the most common myths e.g. All probiotics are expensive or dairy is bad for us etc. 'Being identical twin sisters, we have a passion (teetering on obsession) for finding out what's different about us. Twins are a great constant for medical research and we became the 'chief guinea pigs' for the British Gut project where we discovered that despite us having 100% the same DNA our guts have only 40% the same microbiota, which could explain why our bodies behave so differently. Thus our 'gut journey' began.'
