There are so many diets out there, and all tout specific benefits. However, not very many focus on your gut, which impacts your mood, immune system, and even appetite.
Renovating your gut can work wonders for your health, especially when it comes to weight loss, says Gerard Mullin, MD, author of The Good Gut Diet (published by Rodale, which also publishes Prevention.). “When I entered college I was morbidly obese. So I decided to create my own diet plan, one that was rich with fiber. I now realize that I’d developed a way of eating that was supporting the growth of friendly bacteria in my gut with prebiotic fiber-rich foods and live yogurt cultures,” he says. “I realized that it wasn’t my fault that I was so large. I hadn’t been eating lots of junk food; I was just unknowingly eating the wrong foods. If you’re overweight, it’s likely not your fault either.”
Here are the 5 top foods for better gut health.
1. Fermented foods
