with Dr Michael Mosley
Thursday 8 June 2017
Adelaide Convention Centre
Due to contractual obligations with the BBC, no video or podcast from this event can be made available.
Your guts have an astonishing degree of control over your mood, hunger and general health. The Clever Guts Diet is a book that celebrates this hugely under-rated organ and shows you what you need to do to keep it in prime condition.
Bestselling author Dr Michael Mosley reveals the latest research into the workings of the microbiome – the kilogram of alien bacteria that live in your gut – and takes a look at exactly what happens inside your stomach and intestines as you go about your daily life.
He demonstrates how your gut communicates with your body and mind, and explains why your biome affects your weight, your health and even your happiness.
With his renowned aptitude for self-experimentation, Dr Mosley also delves into the science of his own digestive system; he trials a range of diets to ascertain their effects on body shape and blood sugar, and looks at the effects of prebiotics, probiotics and antibiotics.
In this book, Dr Michael Mosely details scientifically tested ways to keep your gut in good shape, which can:
Regulate your body weight
Control hunger signals
Reduce stress, anxiety and depression
Lower the impact of common conditions, such as coeliac disease, irritable bowel syndrome and type 1 diabetes
Join us for this book launch and the opportunity to discover how The Clever Guts Diet will change how you see your body forever.
Dr Michael Mosley will be joined by Susan Hillier PhD, Dean: Research and Research Education, Associate Professor: Neuroscience and Rehabilitation, Sansom Institute for Health Research, UniSA.
Books sales by Matilda Bookshop from 6.00pm and book signing post presentation.
