You become what you eat. credible idea about the stomach bacteria and the ability of the intestines to affect your well-being (including brain-related such as migraines, MS, depression). Our "western" food culture is far too bacteria-poor. Eat less sugar and processed food, and instead eat more fibre, garlic, artichoke, tea, wine, yoghurt and above all more fermented foods.

However, I lost credibility with the author after about 50 pages. He included references throughout the text - but despite that, it feels like pseudo-science, and like he is extra-polishing results to fit his world view.

So you who are a new reader - be critical and embrace what you think makes sense for your life!

Two main takeaways for me:

1. Your gut biome is very important, and something we haven't really prioritized in the West with our diets. It can help as a supplemental regulatory organ for lots of biological processes. There are also lots of foods that provide good diversity to your gut biome (listed in the book). I think this takeaway has been taken to heart in the mainstream since the publication of this book, since probiotics are found everywhere now.

2. Inflammation is a major factor in lots of diseases/disorders, including many brain conditions (ADHD, depression, etc.) A healthy gut biome can help regulate inflammation, which in turn can help with some of the above.

Another book that claims to be right about things that are the opposite of others. Cholesterol is bad, no it's good, fat is a killer, no fat is a perfect nutrient. Who are we supposed to believe? I'm not sure about anything it seems. He mentions studies, but so do the others. I just don't know how to tell what is true and what is not. I guess I'll need to research this, now, and try to come up with a conclusion on my own, again. I'm working on it... can you tell I've read a lot of hype, but am tired of not having definitive evidence/direction?… (mere)

This was interesting. I'm not sure I buy into everything, but I will investigate further to determine how far to go.
