The final Clever Guts pull out with the Daily Mail by Dr Michael Mosley, on Friday looks at how we make decisions about what to eat.
A radical thought here, quite significant! Who or indeed what makes the decisions of what to eat, do we make that decision consciously or is it a subconscious process? Or is it the millions of neurons in our gut? Is it the microbes in our gut?
Dr Mosley suggests the microbes have more control and influence over us than we ever thought.
Makes one think doesn’t it! (No pun intended here).
Scary to imagine that it may not be our choice – but our microbiome?
So if we have not so good microbes – does that predispose us to select foods that are in fact bad for our health? If we have good microbes then we crave foods that are healthy?
So the conclusion is that by feeding out gut, healthy gut-friendly foods, we are improving our health, our physical and mental well-being – reducing weight and benefiting in many ways.
Revolutionary – worth reading the book and grasping these concepts if it helps us avoid serious illness for as long as we can.
By the way the book is a fun read and really is full of great research and clear explanations. Dr Mosley has the gift of being an excellent communicator, he is inquisitive about our health and how to improve it… a great read!

A large amount of very useful advice, guides and recipes can be found in the very well-written and amusing book – see the links to read more and consider buying the book as a reference volume to keep handy.
Curries are a great health food and can assist the microbiome, see the new books by Atul Kochhar and Dan Toombs for ideas on recipes, different curry powders and ingredients. Use Dr Mosleys approach to select the correct ingredients.

The Body Coach, Joe wicks. Can we apply the Lean Shape Shift Sustain series of guides by Joe Wicks for a longer healthier life?
After a period of reflection, I have been working toward a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and health as the basis for enjoying the choice of food we eat.
The basis for a healthy lifestyle is to achieve optimum health, a happy and productive life for when we are young and into our later years.
When we are young we don’t worry (or know much about) the effects of ageing. Pains, aches and gradual wear – that can cause serious disease – is not something younger people normally have to concern themselves about.
So as I get older the need to avoid the usual ‘wear and tear’ of daily life, knowing how to help to repair my body, keep well and have an enjoyable life is something worth making changes to achieve.
Nothing comes easily in this regard and we need to research, plan and act on a lifestyle that will help us achieve these goals. However it is worth it.
Where to start?
One very popular and trend setting ‘guru’ is Joe Wicks. He suggests a combination of meals and exercises to help you attain a healthy body. For really good videos on You Tube see The Body Coach.
Before setting out on a plan such as Joe Wicks provides, please ensure that you are able to cope with the exercises and able to make the food choice changes required.
However without seeing food from a different perspective – we cannot and will not make the changes necessary for good health. Without realising it, what we eat is deeply ingrained in each of us. We tend to eat what we like – as opposed to what is good for us.
Small changes in the choice and combination of foods combined with the correct exercise can provide significant health benefits.
I will continue a series on health, food and exercise over the next few blogs.
