The CSIRO Healthy Gut Diet

Synopsis

In recent years, we've come to realise that the gut is pivotal to a healthy metabolism, a healthy brain and a healthy immune system. The explosion of scientific research in this field - with CSIRO at the forefront - has also led to the discovery that feeding our gut bacteria with a particular type of fibre called resistant starch is a major piece in the gut health puzzle.Collectively, gut problems account for a disproportionate number of GP visits and hospitalisations. Rates of bowel cancer and other intestinal conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome are on the rise.The good news is that simple lifestyle changes to ensure a healthy high-fibre diet with lots of resistant starch and tailored to your needs, coupled with regular exercise, can significantly reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer and other gut conditions.This book provides information on how the gut functions and what can go wrong, along with advice and lots of delicious recipes that are high in fibre and resistant starch. Written by a team of experienced CSIRO researchers, including nutritional scientists and dieticians, many of whom are internationally recognised authorities in nutrition and gut health, it contains simple, practical advice and a wide range of tasty, easy-to-make recipes designed to benefit the gut and overall health.
