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. (I think this causal chain is a little muddy here... if anything it makes me want to get things that directly help with inflammation rather than in this roundabout way) I think the message around inflammation has also hit mainstream since this book's publication.

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?… (mais)

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

A good book, and an informative read. It sounds like it makes sense, but as per usual in cases like this, the next two avenues to take are

1 - To try the stuff out. There's nothing in the diet that would do harm and, at the very least, you'd get away from processed shit food.
2 - Get a second opinion.

Thought-provoking stuff.
