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, 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.… (més)

Always interested to know about health foods, I picked this book to get a handle on the unique approach of the influence of gut flora as a predominant factor in our choice of diet. Supported by studies across twins as a uniform genetic start point, turns out we need to treat our gut microbes much like we would treat our own garden. Giving them plenty of fertiliser- prebiotics, fibre & nutrients. Planting new seeds regularly in the form of probiotics & new foods, esp fermented ones like yogurt, French cheese, wine, pickles, kimchi & miso soups. Giving the soil an occasional rest by fasting. Experimenting, but avoiding poisoning the microbiotic garden with preservatives, antibiotics, junk/ processed foods & sugar, salt, fat loaded stuff. All these to the effect of helping to maximise the diversity of our gut flora. ( )

The Diet Myth, from start to finish, is long, boring and scientifically accurate. The last part is the most important but the "long and boring" tag will certainly be a hurdle for most. It's unscientific for me to say, but you can likely draw a correlation between how exciting your dieting study sounds or how much it trends with how true it is. The Diet Myth is about as exciting as those leafy greens you know you should eat more of but don't want to.

There isn't a one-size-fits-all capital 'D' Diet that encompasses everyone. According to the author, each person is made up of a unique mix of gut microbes, genetics and, yes, your actual diet. There's a lot to take in here. Have a go at it, do your research and form your own conclusions. ( )

Fascinating fact filled myth busting book about nutrition and all the things we thought we knew but are wrong, because we are only just beginning to understand the interaction of our diet with our microbiome. Only criticism is that it is a bit overloaded on the science so the message gets a little lost. If nothing else read the concluding chapter. Definitely food for thought! ( )

The best so far of a string of excellent microbiome books written by practicing scientists. The author's concise writing style packs multiple interesting examples and facts on each page. Divided into chapters based on type of food, I learned about what's proven and what's unknown about the effects of different diets on health. ( )

This book is fascinating. It deftly puts paid to most of the restrictive diets that are pushed upon anyone trying to lose weight by pointing out that everyone is different, and therefore we need to pay attention to the make-up of their gut microbiome (the various good and bad microbes that live in our digestive systems), as well as genes, in certain circumstances.

The number and quality of the studies cited is impressive and comforting, considering that zero scientific rigour is apparently needed to advise all and sundry that gluten is the devil and to be avoided at all costs. Yet the author writes in an accessible manner, so you don't need to wrap your head around lots of confusing terminology (although there's a glossary at the back to help!).

I found this book enlightening on a personal level, having struggled with weight issues all my life, and have come away with some ideas of how to go about tackling this without starving myself or doing stupid amounts of exercise! ( )
