Happy Gut, Healthy Weight

This book presents simple yet powerful insights about the Human Gut Microbiome and how recalibrating your Metabolism is possible through non-back breaking, fancy or largely unsustainable diet routines. It also brings to attention the ability of our Gut-Brain connection that translates into sound health, calm mind and a relaxed soul.

Does your gut truly have a bearing on your health and weight?

Can a Happy Gut actually save you the tides and tribulations of years of yo-yo dieting and allow you to enjoy a healthy weight?

Our processed diet coupled with a “highly evolved” increasingly digitalised lifestyle may have a direct bearing on disrupting our Metabolism, our weight regulator. Tackling obesity then, is not just a “calories in – calories out” matter. Instead, it demands a “whole person”, integrated approach.

Within the pages of this book, you will find amazing information that has the potential to help you achieve and maintain your healthy weight, through simple lifestyle routines, which incorporate all facets of diet, exercise and stress management.

Hear all this from someone who has cut, stitched, healed and studied the human gut for over two decades. In this book, Dr Arun Dhir, a highly regarded Gastro Intestinal and Bariatric Surgeon, blends cutting edge science on gut health and it’s association with obesity. He crafts this information in a “tasteful and easily digestible” evidenced based format, which can be put into practice almost immediately.
