What Should I Eat? The Ultimate Podcast Guide To Choosing The Perfect Diet For You: Part 1
I'm not a big fan of a myopic "one-size-fits-all" approach to diets.
And yet, despite the enormous amount of biochemical individuality that exists from person to person, there is still a plethora of diet books published each year that promise to be the solution for everything from fat loss to banishing acne when in fact, the same ketogenic diet that helped your neighbor shed twenty pounds can result in rampant inflammation and oxidized cholesterol for you.
Do Probiotics Really Work, The Carnivore Diet, How To Heal Bacterial Overgrowth, Is Fiber Necessary, Melatonin For A Leaky Gut & More!
These days, when people ask me the #1 book I recommend for all things gut, it is, hands down "Healthy Gut, Healthy You" by Dr. Michael Ruscio.
Michael Ruscio is a doctor, clinical researcher and best-selling author whose practical ideas have made him an influential voice in functional and alternative medicine. Dr. Ruscio also runs an influential website and podcast at DrRuscio.com, as well as his clinical practice located in northern California.
