The Healthy Gut Diet Dr Michael Mosley @drmichaelmosley Daily Mail Monday

From the clever guts diet, a set of recipes showing the natural way to lose weight free pull-out in Monday’s Daily Mail.

Middle age can add weight to our bodies and a not so nice increase on the tummy front.

Fasting as in Dr Mosely’s best-selling books can and does have a role, however, did you know that the gut microbes in our digestive system can regulate our body weight, our energy levels, hunger signals we sense and how much our blood sugar spikes?

The recipes included today are:

  • Scrumptious salmon and tomato burgers
  • Healthy homemade granola
  • Raspberry chia jam
  • Classic Greek salad
  • Lamb and sweet stew potato stew
  • Poor man’s potatoes
  • Kashmiri chicken curry
  • Hummus five ways
  • Creamy cashew nut spread

The diet at a glance is included.

Michael Mosley @DrMichaelMosley The Clever Guts Diet: How to revolutionise your body from the inside out

Dr Michael Mosley who is famous for the Fast Diet book has a great new potentially life changing book – The Clever Guts Diet published on 18 May 2017.

The book is now available in stores and on Amazon and it is therapy on two levels –

  1. The diet for helping our microbiome and our long-term health
  2. A fun laughter packed read… worth the money for this alone!!

The Clever Guts new book explains how smart our digestive system actually is and the fact that our gut is really very smart.

Clever Guts?
Our gut contains millions of neurons 100 million of them – there are as many neurons as in the brain of a cat. Also the home to the Microbiome, where an array of microbes influence your mood, weight and immune system.

By feeding our bacteria the right foods and cutting out the bad food we can help our bacteria to fight off disease. Slim people actually have a different set of bacteria in their gut. Junk food, sugar and stress – not to mention lack of sleep all dilute the good bacteria and promote the bad. So looking after yourself is the right thing to do.

For as low a price as £3.85 you can buy the book and if you read the advice and put it in to action – I believe that you should prepare to be amazed by the changes that you will enjoy.

Dr Mosley has discovered that a wide range of foods give more bacterial diversity.

Follow the Daily Mail articles next week for pull-outs each day with recipes and hints, we will add a blog article each day also.

A selection of menus for breakfast, lunches, dinners and treats based on help from nutritional therapist Tanya Boroski and GP Clare Bailey are included in the new book. (More recipes followed in the Daily Mail during the week of publication).

Dr. Mosley in this groundbreaking book studies:

  • what is good gut bacteria?
  • why allergies, food intolerance and obesity are on the rise
  • how to use pre-biotics and pro-biotics,
  • effects of fermented foods and fasting
  • how to adapt to the new ‘clever gut’ diet
  • why sleep is important
  • scientifically proven ways to control your appetite and boost mood

Want a good laugh – buy the book and see how Dr. Mosley swallows a micro camera live to monitor in real time what happens in his gut!

To buy on Amazon – The Clever Guts Diet: How to revolutionise your body from the inside out

The Clever Guts Diet is going to be another best seller and certainly pulls together current knowledge and science on the subject.

The sugar detox Daily Mail Saturday 18 Jan 2014

The new advice on how to reduce sugar in your diet, lower your weight and improve health.

The sugar detox – in the Saturday edition of the Daily Mail the 18 January 2014, by Dr Brooke Alpert:

The theory is that sugar is much more harmful than we think, perhaps there is too much sugar in our diets. It is in fruit, many drinks and added to the foods we eat. Each day as we eat the amount of sugar adds up and it is the overall total that is the problem.

The new series in the Daily Mail all week summarises the book by Dr Alpert and outlines the dangers of too much sugar and the action we can take. It is in fact a detox – as we crave sugary foods and need to re educate our bodies to do without or do with a lot less.

There are recipes to help you detox, with a wonderful detox rice pudding.

There is a book available called The Sugar Detox: Lose Weight, Feel Great and Look Years Younger by Dr Brooke Alpert and Patricia Farris.

Starchy foods also present a problem, so a full inventory or check or what we buy and eat is necessary.

Combined with a 5:2 diet, we could be onto the secret of much better health and a longer life.

Also Mimi Spencer’s take on the new diet:  Mimi Spencer: The idea of the Fast Diet is that a food-free window twice a week is incredibly good for you

Dr Mosley in 2012 was slightly overweight and perhaps pre disposed to have diabetes. He decided to search for a solution – a diet – that would help remove this unhealthy trend in his lifestyle. Was it possible to address these serious health issues with changes to diet?

He is a medical journalist and so was able to speak with and interview those scientists and nutrition experts that led to studying the latest research. He put his conclusions to the test on himself in a Horizon program that tried out the theory on fasting. This was our introduction to the concept and benefits of intermittent fasting.

The Mail on Sunday has a four page section with a guide to the theory behind the Fast Diet, how to go about trying the diet and recipes from the new cookbook. See The amazing slimming book every paper wanted

Recipes include:

  • Bouillabaisse
  • Allotment soup
  • Ratatouille and toast
  • Lightweight Cottage pie

The overnight diet Dr Caroline Apovian

Is it for real? The overnight diet Dr Caroline Apovian.

Thought it may be an April fool joke!

Based on the amount of lean muscle we have and how we manage our exercise and nutrition. Lean muscle is related to metabolism and Dr Apovian has designed a plan that can help us build lean muscle, reduce weight, increase metabolism. So the concept is based on good analysis.

Dr Caroline Apovian is an internationally renown expert on weight loss and is director of nutrition and weight management at the Boston Medical Centre

Read about this innovative and exciting new diet:

Part one: Slim while you sleep! It sounds almost too good to be  –Daily Mail

Part two: Overnight Diet by Dr Caroline Apovian: Stay fit forever  –Daily Mail

The book Overnight Diet by Dr Caroline Apovian is now available.

So perhaps this diet approach is not so daft!

As The book says:

Discover the no-fad weight loss plan that successful dieters and top weight-loss experts are talking about . . .

This cutting-edge diet accelerates fat-burning and primes the body to work at its best. Kick start your weight loss every week with a day of delicious smoothies called the ‘1-Day Power Up’. This produces powerful results when combined with the ‘6-Day Fuel Up’, during which you can enjoy lean protein, low-fat dairy, whole grains and all-you-can-eat fruit and vegetables. Add in an easy-to-follow workout designed to rev up your metabolism and preserve lean muscle and you have the recipe for a slimmer ‘you’.

Many popular diets lead to ‘shrinking muscle syndrome’ – a loss of muscle mass that can rob you of energy, leave you weaker and flabbier and lead to yo-yo dieting. The Overnight Diet avoids all of these common problems.

Amazing – what will we see next?
