From leading authority on the gut microbiome Dr. Gerard E. Mullin, a revolutionary new approach to inner ecology balance—the essential key to healing your gut and losing the weight for good!
“The Gut Balance Revolution by Dr. Mullin truly is a revolution in thinking about how to get healthy. More importantly is a powerful, groundbreaking plan for you to reset your health for life.” —Mark Hyman, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Blood Sugar Solution 10 Day Detox Diet
Science has given us a groundbreaking new discovery in the fight against obesity and weight gain. When the trillions of live bacteria in your digestive tract—the gut microbiome—are balanced, excess pounds melt away and you feel revitalized.
Out of balance, or when we unknowingly eat the wrong foods that promote inflammation or reduce the needed diversity of gut microbes, we establish conditions for fat accumulation. An unbalanced gut can make you feel more hungry, more often.
Now, a leading authority on the gut microbiome and digestive health Dr. Gerard E. Mullin, associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University, shares the first proven, science-based program to restore and retain a balanced gut in his new book, THE GUT BALANCE REVOLUTION: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good! (Rodale; June 9, 2015; $26.99).
Standing apart from other books on losing unwanted weight, THE GUT BALANCE REVOLUTION takes a close look at the hidden world most of us and our physicians ignore—the gut microbiome. When balanced, Dr. Mullin says, it holds the secret to weight loss.
Dr. Mullin’s THE GUT BALANCE REVOLUTION—grounded in leading-edge science and his over 20 years of experience with patients in his medical practice—reveals how to biodiversify the digestive tract’s inner ecology, redirect nutrition away from the fat-forming, disease-promoting bacteria, reseed your gut with good fat-burning ones, and fertilize those friendly flora with just the right foods to reboot, rebalance, and renew your health—and lose weight for good!
THE GUT BALANCE REVOLUTION presents the latest information on prebiotics, elucidates the usefulness of probiotics, busts the myths on dietary supplements, and discusses benefits of gut-healing foods to move to a sustainable lean metabolism. Dr. Mullin shares the seven pathways to gut microbe imbalance, weight gain and illness; your gut bug “fingerprint” that may have a dramatic impact on your weight and health; the hidden problem of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth); and an expert review on gluten, lactose, and intolerances to a hot topic in nutrition—the FODMAPs (carbohydrates that contain short-chain sugars that gut bugs can readily ferment). He also discusses foods that help diversify your gut microbiome, including fermented foods and Superfoods with beneficial properties, such as avocado, chia, ginger, quinoa, whey protein, kefir, kimchi, miso, kale, oats, salmon, apples, artichokes, and more.
His trailblazing three-phase program provides:
- Research. The latest up-to-the-minute, frontline science behind the system; how balancing your gut microbiome can burn fat, curb appetite, and restore health.
- Weed out the fat-forming bacteria by eliminating the foods that make them grow and promote inflammation, insulin, fat accumulation, and more.
- The damage done by antibiotics and what you can do to heal.
- Rev Up. Re-ignite your fat-burning metabolism with exercise and diet.
- Reseed your gut with probiotic friendly flora and feed your favorable flora with foods rich in fat-burning microbiota like bifidobacteria to establish a healthy gut ecology, reduce mental stress, and reinstitute a healthy lifestyle including sleep hygiene.
- The right balance of probiotic foods and prebiotics.
- Keep the weight off for good and enjoy pleasure foods, using Dr. Mullin’s easy-to-follow plan including the top 10 Superfoods for Phases 1, 2, and 3; step-by-step meal plans; 50 delicious, simple-to-prepare recipes; shopping lists for each phase; and time-efficient fat-burning exercises that you can do at home to better health.
