    Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome, a practical guide in the tradition of Wheat Belly and Grain Brain that conclusively demonstrates the inextricable, biological link between mind and body. We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gut—the decision we made because it “felt right”; the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when we’re stressed out. While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut, and more recently, the microbiome—the microorganisms that live inside us—communicate with one another. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, executive director of the UCLA Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience, offers a revolutionary look at this developing science, teaching us how to harness the power of the mind-gut connection to take charge of our health. The Mind-Gut Connection describes:why consuming a predominantly plant-based diet is key for gut and brain health;the importance of early childhood in gut-brain development, and what parents can do to help their children thrive;the role of excessive stress and anxiety in GI ailments and cognitive disorders; and how to “listen to your gut” and pay attention to the signals your body is sending you and much more.

    In this definitive book on gluten, the authors of Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic cut through the misinformation, false claims, and widespread confusion over gluten to explain the science behind the current gluten-free craze and examine the food-brain-gut triangle to reveal what’s really going on in our bodies and our brains. A regimen once followed by those diagnosed with gluten intolerance or celiac disease (a serious autoimmune disorder), gluten-free diets have become a panacea, “prescribed” not only by gastroenterologists, but also by dieticians, nutritionists, naturopaths, trainers, psychiatrists, and neurologists. Believing that eliminating gluten is healthier or that it will help them lose weight, droves of people are adopting a gluten-free lifestyle—and the food industry has responded with shelves of “gluten-free” products. Yet there is little scientific evidence to substantiate this trend, and the latest medical findings have shown that much of what is commonly accepted about gluten is wrong. While the gluten-free diet works for some people—and is a lifesaver for those with celiac disease—going gluten free may injure our health, robbing us of essential nutrients and masking our real problems. Dr. Peter H. R. Green, an internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and Rory Jones provide much-needed medical truths about gluten. Gluten Exposed is an inside-out examination of every symptom and condition associated with gluten, how gluten works in the body, what the gluten-free diet cures—and what it doesn’t—and which drugs, supplements, and foods often cause problems blamed on gluten alone. It offers clear, welcome guidance and specific disease-based roadmaps that can help anyone achieve a healthier, symptom-free life.

    Haylie Pomroy, celebrated nutritionist, and New York Times bestselling author of The Fast Metabolism Diet shares a prescription for total health based on decades of work using food as metabolic medicine. Our bodies are always talking; we just need to learn how to listen to them. Sometimes they whisper to us—our energy is off, our body shape is morphing in ways we don’t like. Sometimes they try to give us straight talk, pushing our cholesterol a little higher or we have IBS or indigestion. At other times they’re screaming, we’re pre-diabetic or full blown, our moods are a mess, and our immune system is confused and attacking us. Every one of these health signals hides a specific kind of metabolic dysfunction, and for each, food is the answer. In her new book, Haylie teaches us that anyone can achieve the body and health they want from the foods that they choose and use.

    Doctor of Natural Medicine and wellness authority Dr. Josh Axe delivers a groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed yet little-understood health conditions: leaky gut syndrome Do you have a leaky gut? For eighty percent of the population the answer is yes—and most people don’t even realize it. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments, including: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis. That’s because in order to keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Josh Axe explains that what we regard as modern improvements to our food supply—refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains—have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe explains that it’s essential to get a little “dirty” in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil. Because leaky gut manifests differently in every individual, Dr. Axe also identifies the five main gut types and offers customizable plans—including diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations—to dramatically improve gut health in just thirty days. With a simple diet plan, recipes, and practical advice, Eat Dirt will help listeners restore gut health and eliminate leaky gut for good.

    The innovative guide that reveals how eating more fat—the smart kind—is the key to health, longevity, and permanent weight loss. For years, experts have told us that eating fat is bad. But by banning fat from our diets, we’ve deprived ourselves of considerable health benefits—and have actually sabotaged our own efforts to lose weight. Though they originally came from vastly different schools of thought about diet and weight loss, renowned nutritionist Jonny Bowden and well-respected physician Steven Masley independently came to the same conclusion about why so many people continually fail to shed pounds and get healthy. It all comes back to a distinction far more important than calories vs. carbs or paleo vs. plant-based: smart fat vs. dumb fat. In Smart Fat, they explain the amazing properties of healthy fat, including its ability to balance hormones for increased energy and appetite control, and its incredible anti-inflammatory benefits. The solution for slimming down—and keeping the pounds off for life—is to “smart-fat” your meals, incorporating smart fats with fiber, protein, and most importantly, flavor. Bowden and Masley identify smart fats, explain what not to eat, and provide a thirty-day meal plan and fifty recipes based on the magic formula of fat, fiber, protein, and flavor. It’s time to unlearn what we think we know about food. Getting smart about fat—and everything you eat—and learning to smart-fat your meals is the only solution you’ll ever need.

    In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America—heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and more—and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives. The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn’t have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger’s advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer. History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug—and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen—a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor’s orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

    We do not come into the world with an innate sense of taste and nutrition; as omnivores, we have to learn how and what to eat, how sweet is too sweet, and what food will give us the most energy for the coming day. But how does this education happen? What are the origins of taste? In First Bite, the beloved food writer Bee Wilson draws on the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and nutritionists to reveal that our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors, including family, culture, memory, gender, hunger, and love. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our tastes and eating habits—from people who can only eat foods of a certain color to an amnesiac who can eat meal after meal without getting full—First Bite also shows us how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

    A Pollanesque look at the truth about wheat: meal or menace? No topic in nutrition is more controversial than wheat. While megasellers like Grain Brain and Wheat Belly suggest that wheat may be the new asbestos, Stephen Yafa finds that it has been wrongly demonized. His revealing book sets the record straight, breaking down the botany of the wheat plant we’ve hijacked for our own use, the science of nutrition and digestion, the effects of mass production on our health, and questions about gluten and fiber—all to point us toward a better, richer diet. Wheat may be the most important food in human history, reaching from ancient times to General Mills. Yafa tours commercial factories where the needs of mass production trump the primacy of nutrition and reports on the artisan grain revolution. From a Woodstock-like kneading conference to nutrition labs to a boutique bakery and pasta maker’s workshop in Brooklyn, he also finds that there may in fact be a perfect source of wheat-based nutrition. Its name is sourdough. For readers of Salt Sugar Fat and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Grain of Truth smoothly blends science, history, biology, economics, and nutrition to give us back our daily bread.

    For years Mark Bittman has taught us to cook better and more simply. Since 2011, as a New York Times opinion columnist, he has helped us cut through the noise and rhetoric of food politics to become better consumers and citizens, joining a pantheon of food influencers, including Michael Pollan and Eric Schloss, who shape the way we talk about food. Mark Bittman made headlines three years ago when it was revealed that, for the first time, the New York Times opinion page would feature a food writer to help us make sense of the tangled webs of food, health, environment, politics, and culture. Mark was the teacher who helped us cut through the pretense of cooking. And as an opinion columnist, Mark has delighted us, enraged us, and inspired us to do more for ourselves and our world in the same no-nonsense style. In the tradition of his New York Times bestselling Food Matters, this book collects the best of his columns, updated to reflect the latest research and tied together with new material to give context. But this isn’t just a simple collection. Bittman is grouping pieces to show each of them in a new light—in some cases to show us how far we’ve come in just a few years and in some cases to show us the slow unfolding of stories as they have happened over time. What emerges is a collection that shows us the story of who we are as a nation of cooks, eaters, and voters, right now.
