We are all increasingly bewildered by the simple question of what to eat. Despite advice from experts, governments and dieticians about the dangers of too much fat, sugar and protein and lack of exercise, our nutrition - and the global obesity crisis - is getting worse.
Why can one person eat a certain meal and gain weight and another eat exactly the same food and lose pounds? Genes provide part of the answer, but we have been overlooking one vital aspect of diet that lies within us.
Thanks to recent breakthroughs, scientists have begun to examine the permanent residents in our guts: the thousands of previously unknown but essential microbes whose job it is to digest our food and keep us alive. Drawing on the latest science and his own research team's pioneering work, Professor Tim Spector explores the hidden world of the microbiome and demystifies the common misconceptions about fat, calories, vitamins and nutrients. Only by understanding how our own microbes interact with our bodies can we overcome our confusion about modern diets and nutrition to regain the correct balance of our ancestors.
Mixing cutting-edge discoveries, illuminating science and his own case studies, Spector shows why we should stop listening to the myths of diet fads and instead embrace diversity for a healthy gut and a healthy body.

Very worth while listening too,
n/a for me, only have listened to the audio book, but I would say this is definetly the leader though,
The information is well backed up and then presented and the conclusion is easy to come to,
I now understand a lot better the things that I have always thought about with diet and have never had any one or anthing to further my own primitive understanding, Thank you Tim Spector.
In parts of the book it seems to be hard to listen too, but I put that down to the information you are trying to listen too and understand. I thought it was boring in parts, but after hearing the audio book a second time, I realised it was way interesting than the first listen to.
The Gut feeling
So glad I have heard the information, Please dont hestitate to follow the book all the way through.
