#137 The Diversity Diet with Dr Megan Rossi

16 Feb 2022

The benefits of a diverse and colourful diet are huge, and here to talk with me about it today is my colleague and friend Dr. Megan Rossi. A registered dietitian with an award-winning PhD in gut health and Research Fellow at King’s College London. Megan is currently investigating nutrition-based therapies in gut health, including pre- and probiotics, dietary fibres, the low FODMAP diet and food additives as well as running a gut health clinic in Harley Street.

Her latest book “Eat More, Live Well” is a Sunday Times Bestseller for good reasons. It’s a brilliant resource for people wanting to learn more about the benefits of a happy gut, how it can improve mood, energy, weight and more. Plus, Megan has included some brilliant meal plans for different gut needs.

Today we talk about a host of topics including:

  • The benefits of of a diverse diet
  • Why we should be eating 30 plant points a week
  • Training your taste buds to prefer plants
  • What a healthy microbiota looks like and the role of testing
  • Probiotics for immune support and skin conditions and skin aging
  • And how to reduce bloating when you’re eating more plants
