The 100 trillion bacteria that live in your digestive tract - which make up 90 percent of the cells in your body - are the real reason you gain or lose weight. When those microbes are out of balance, chronic health conditions can occur, including irritable bowel syndrome, fatigue, and obesity. By balancing the good and bad bacteria, you can finally achieve your ideal weight - for good.
In The Skinny Gut Diet, New York Times best-selling author, public television icon, certified nutritional consultant, and digestive health expert Brenda Watson offers an insightful perspective on the little-known connection between weight gain and an underlying imbalance of bacteria in the gut, or what she calls the "gut factor" - the overlooked root cause of weight gain. Drawing upon the latest scientific research, Brenda illuminates the inner workings of the digestive system and provides instructions for achieving a healthy bacterial ecosystem that spurs weight loss by enabling the body to absorb fewer calories from food, experience reduced cravings, and store less fat. The premise is simple: curtail sugar consumption (and its surprising sources) and eat more healthy fats, living foods, and protein to balance the gut bacteria. The result? A skinny gut.
The Skinny Gut Diet centers around an easy-to-follow diet plan. A 14-day eating plan, dozens of delicious recipes, and sage advice help you achieve - and maintain - digestive balance and sustained weight loss. With inspiring real-life stories of 10 individuals who transformed their health on the Skinny Gut Diet, Brenda empowers you to become your own health advocate so that you can finally shed unwanted pounds and enjoy optimal health and vitality.

Useful but there are better reads on the subject
Slightly better than average diet book based on ideas contained, but that's not saying much. Includes the obligatory glowing testimonials from closely controlled victims and promotion of the authors supplement line. Could have been half as long. The short version is, eat a high fiber paleo diet, plus limited beans and unsweetened dairy, probiotics and soluble fiber supplements. As eating that much animal food is unethical and promotes cancer if you live longer than cave man, i.e. over 25, it doesn't work for me. Narrator sounds like a pseudo-snooty ice queen. If you like the typical, hopeful, its not your fault dear it's the system/genetics/etc., diet as self-help book tone, it's a useful way to get the information. Otherwise The Good Gut is a much more scientific, practical read promoting a healthier long term dietary solution.

Research backed, easy to follow and fascinating!
Must read for anyone interested in gut health, even if you don't need to lose weight ... even more important if you do!
