    UPDATE 11617I initially gave this a 45 thinking it was sound smart advice but 13 months later after reading a number of nutrition books I've come to understand a lot of the bad advice given in this book While there are some good points on antibiotics the advice and justification of Whole Grains are terrible frankly I dismiss anyone's nutritional advice when they say you need to eat whole grains; whole grains suck; see Wheat Belly or Undoctored by William Davis andor Eat the Yolks by Liz Wolfe and the exercise recommendation is also not the best advice see The great cardio myth by Craig Ballantyne andor The Calorie Myth by Jonathon Bailor So rereading the notes I wrote a year ago below I no longer view this book as 45I don't even view this book as good or particularly credible There are a number of much better books that use the updated science of nutrition and exercise Notes This plan focuses on food choices and portion control strategies that help you eat of the high uality foods that nourish you and make you feel full Growing field of human microbiome research the study of various tiny organisms that live in our bodies especially in our bellies Healthy people have beneficial microbes overall and a greater variety of microbes in their bodies than less healthy people; having a balanced diverse microbe community is the way to go p2 3 The diet will focus on making choices that protect and support the microbes in the stomach It'll help burn off dangerous belly fat and maintain a healthy weight Refers to microbes as little buddies 36% of adults in the United States are obese An additional 33% are overweight Only 31% of American adults are considered normal weight or underweight About one third of children and adolescents are overweight or obese p23 Consumption and burning of calories is not the only factor in losing weight Another is personal metabolism Metabolism the rate at which each of us uses and stores energy from foodMost gut bacteria love high fiber foods p28 The most important step you can take to protect and support your microbes is to start eating dietary fiber p37No matter what amazing discoveries gut researchers make I don't think the best medicine for gut health will ever come from a pill p41Fiber is the word we use for a number of different types of carbohydrates found in plant foods such as fruits vegetables whole grains legumes nuts and seeds Americans don't eat enough fiber because we don't enough high fiber fruits and vegetables and because many of the grain foods we do eat ie white flour sugary cereal and white rice are so processed that little of their natural fiber remains p43 44 You can get fiber in your diet by eating whole fruits instead of fruit juice choosing whole grains instead of processed grains brown rice instead of white rice eat whole grain bread pasta cereals and crackers instead of white bread white pasta and low fiber cereal and crackers; Eat fruit andor vegetables with every meal eat vegetables with salsa raspberries contain fiber than strawberries add seeds or beans to your salad use ground nuts or seeds as coating for fish or poultry and eat fruits and vegetables with their skin on like apples pears cucumbers Drink water with your fiber intake Gas cramps and bloating are typical but temporary symptoms as your body adjust to the new fiber intake p45 46It's important to eat a mix of vegetables and fruits to get all the nutrients you need because one doesn't contain everything p51Raw produce is better for your gut microbes than cooked because cooking breaks down some of the complex carbohydrates in foods Opt for organic produce when possible p53A tip to eat vegetables is to use dips like salsa and yogurt p54 Also recommends a dish called Chow chowRecommends protein especially plant based protein foods like Legumes peanuts p62 Warn of processed meats especially red meats like bacon ham pepperoni hot dogs jerky etc p63 64Whole grains are good for us but refined grains are the opposite Whole grains are made up of the entire seed or kernel of a plant The seed consists of the germ the bran and the endosperm and whole grain foods contain all those components With refined grains the healthy parts of the plant's seed are stripped away Foods such as white bread white pasta white rice white flour and other refined grain have had most of their nutrient rich bran and germ removed Thus almost all of its protein fiber vitamins and minerals are lost p67Add these whole grains to your daily diet; barley cracked wheat corn including whole grain cornmeal and popcorn wheat oats wild rice and uinoa especially p69 70There are foods that actually contain living microbes like yogurt He recommends full fat organic dairyor low fat if you prefer the taste rather than nonfat dairyskim milk Go with plain yogurt and add fresh fruit instead of the sugary flavors Try adding cinnamon and nutmeg to your yogurt Look for the words live and active cultures on the label See Sigg's brand p77 78Try Kefir on your cereal instead of milk Recommends plain because flavoring adds anywhere from 40 to 60 calories per serving and around 18 grams of sugar p79 Antibiotics were first developed in the late 1920s and they became universally available in the US in the 1940s They were considered a miracle drug for humans because they cured a range of diseases that had previously killed millions of people Antibiotics then started to be given to animals which also made them fatter Problem is that the antibiotics that fatten up animals also fatten up the people who eat them p88 89 Recommends that you eat meat and other foods from animals that are raised WITHOUT antibiotics When you're buying organic meats and dairy products you're also protecting yourself from the growth hormones that are often used in conventionally raised animal products p90 Grass fed is also preferable p91 You can save money with frozen organic fruitsAntibiotics kill off dangerous bacteria but also good Antibiotics are Tremendously overused and this overuse is wreaking havoc on good bacteria while causing dangerous bacteria to mutate and become dangerous p98 Antibiotics make their way into the human microbiome in 2 ways through drugs that we take directly and through the antibiotics given to farm animals that we eat In one year than 262 million courses of antibiotics are prescribed in doctors' offices clinics and other outpatient settings That's the euivalent of giving an antibiotic prescription to 83% of the people in this country every year One third to one half is not necessary;

  2. Stephanie Kirschmann Stephanie Kirschmann says:

    Great recommendations here More about what you should eat than what you should not eat I appreciate the emphasis on a plant based diet while also leaving room for the inclusion of dairy grains fish and chickenbeef for my husband Even as a vegetarian I find it challenging to integrate the servings of vegetables that he recommends daily

  3. Beth Polebaum Beth Polebaum says:

    On the one hand there are some good recipes in the back of the book On the other the book is written as though his readership has the mental capacity of the microbes he insists on calling Little Buddies

  4. Kym Berner Kym Berner says:

    I would search elsewhere for valid health informationThere is some good information in the book but nothing new to me It is written in way that seems like the reader is in third grade He used cute nicknames for many body functions and systems instead of clinical terms which seemed like a waste of my valuable time There was a lot of repetition and the same subjects were covered in multiple chapters What I gleaned from the book could have been covered in full detail by an online article

  5. Christopher Lawson Christopher Lawson says:

    Commit To Living An Active Healthy LifePrior to reading this book I had no idea the author was an ER physician In that profession Dr Stork has seen what happens if you do NOT take care of your body The poor folks he sees in the ER room wish than anything that they could turn back the clock and live a better healthier life They would give anything for a second chance But many of them can’t It is too late for themTHE LOSE YOUR BELLY DIET is primarily focused on changing the food you eat especially getting fiber and a diversity of microbes into your diet That is it's not an exercise book or a set of short cuts to make you look slimmer Rather improving your appearance is actually a side benefit of the better diet That is you will naturally have a smaller belly when you incorporate the recommended changesThe essence of the Lose Your Belly Diet is really just 5 things 1 Enjoy probiotic foods every day 2 Eat an abundance of Prebiotic Superstars3 Pick a mix of proteins4 Choose great grains5 Embrace friendly fats Dr Stork emphasizes what he calls Buddies in Your Belly These are the microbes in your gut The doctor emphases the importance of getting a diverse population of microbes into our system Gut microbes play such a crucial role in our health that it’s kind of amazing that it’s taken so long for us to start giving them the attention they deserveIn an era where we emphasize super cleanliness and use of antibacterial lotions it's important to take action to improve the diversity of our gut bacteria The good news is that we can take significant steps to repair our damaged guts The doctor points out that increasing dietary fiber is a critical and pretty easy step Another big emphasis of THE LOSE YOUR BELLY DIET is getting fiber into our diet This is not a new idea of course but it IS a well supported idea Giant piles of research have shown that people who eat adeuate fiber have a lower risk of various chronic health conditions such as heart disease obesity diabetes some kinds of cancerI like the author's willingness to admit when the science is not uite proven in some areas I appreciate his humility Although we have learned so much lately there are still many things we don’t know about gut bacteria and how best to support it When we don’t know whether A is better than B or C I’ll level with you and share whatever guidance is available to help you make choices that are best for youPART II suggests Foods That Feed Your Gut I thought one of the sections was the Dozen Easy Ways to Eat More Fiber I learned several good dietary tactics that I had not thought of Here are the ones that I found most helpful #4 In soups chili and pasta sauces replace some meat with beans or lentil#7 Choose fruits and vegetables that are highest in fiber For example raspberries contain much fiber 8 grams per cup than strawberries 3 grams per cup# 8 Add beans lentils split peas or seeds to your salads #10 Swap hummus for mayonnaise as a sandwich spread Hummus provides you with protein as well as fiber As a result of reading this tips I am changing the food I eat to try to emphasize fiber and microbe diversity as the doctor recommends I confess I had no idea that raspberries had a lot of fiber compared to strawberries That seems like a really simple change to do Another good way to enhance your gut microbe diversity is to eat probiotic foods which are teeming with helpful microbes you introduce new guests to the microbe party in your gut The author reminds the reader that yogurt is the mother of all probiotic food Kefir is another good choice because it has many different strains of bacteria compared to yogurt I did not know that Dr Stork cites the well known study showing that kids who grow up in dirtier environments are often healthier Kids who grow up in homes with dogs have lower rates of asthma allergies and eczema than kids without dogs Kids who are raised on farms pick up a wide variety of microbes as they interact with animals Although the research is not yet conclusive it seems as though early exposure to microbes improves our immune system All in all I found THE LOSE YOUR BELLY DIET to be a helpful encouraging book I didn't see any startling new findings but there were a lot of practical tips I had not considered Dr Stork concludes with an encouraging note Make the most of your life by being active and fueling your body in a way that best supports you Recalling what he sees in the ER department the doctor exhorts the reader to take action NOW Change your diet and the benefits will start right awayI thought this uote sums up the book nicely Don’t be the person in the ER whose last moments are filled with nothing but regret Commit to living an active healthy lifeAdvance Review Copy courtesy of the publisher

    This book is NOT just another fad diet book definitely uite the opposite Dr Travis Stork explains how the health and well being of microbes that live in our gut are connected The Lose Your Belly Diet is full of nutritional information and also has a great eating plan that puts its emphasis on eating whole grains legumes and probiotic foods You will also find recipes in the back of the book to help you on your healthy journeyA well researched book that has a lot of detail and thought behind it Highly recommendedI received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

  7. Jana Jana says:

    I can't wait to try the recipes at the back of the book; they look great I wasn't overly impressed with the information in the chapters though I got tired of hearing about my Little Buddies and the overuse of transition words annoying so I've rated it 3 out of 5 stars

  8. Elizabeth J Miller Elizabeth J Miller says:

    Reads somewhat like a text book however the message is good as well as motivational My husband loves the recipies especially the spinach lasgna

  9. Barb Barb says:

    Clearly just reading this book doesn't get rid of Belly Fat Darn I hoped that it wouldThat being said I enjoyed the book Most of the information I've heard before but the book was well written and somewhat motivating I think I'll put down this ice cream sandwich and look for an apple and yogurt

  10. Kelly Kelly says:

    The jist of this book is about taking care of the good bacteria in your gut and how that will make you healthier and possibly leaner as well I will incorporate some of the ideas into my diet and my family's and be aware of what I am eating
