Reviews of The Diet Myth by Tim Spector PDF Book
Inside this Book –We are all increasingly bewildered by the simple question of what to eat. Despite thousands of diet books, advice from experts and government guidelines, our nutrition – and the global obesity crisis – is getting worse. Why? Dietary advice tells us to eat less fat, less sugar or less protein and yet most diets fail in the long term. The food we consume has a huge impact on our health as well as our weight; however evidence shows that we all respond differently to the same foods. Genes provide only part of the answer to this conundrum. 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 trillions of microbes, bacteria and fungi whose job it is to digest our food and keep us alive and healthy.
Microbes generally get bad publicity, but less than a tiny fraction of species are harmful to us and most, in fact, are crucial to our health. Not only essential to how we digest food, but they also control the calories we absorb and provide vital enzymes and vitamins as well as keeping our immune system healthy. Over millions of years, we have evolved in a close inter-dependence with microbes, yet recently this fine-tuning and selection has gone wrong. Compared to our recent ancestors who lived outside cities, with rich and varied diets and without antibiotics, we have only a fraction of the diversity of species of microbes living in our guts. Scientists are only now starting to understand the long-lasting impact this has on all of us.
