Health messages around diet, exercise and weight loss have become very confusing in recent years, largely due to the multitude of vested interests. However, given the current rates of obesity in Australia it’s time to take a closer look at the energy balance debate and try to simplify the message around weight loss based on credible scientific research.
I am delighted to now offer SmartGUT Microbiome testing. The test and consultation provide a comprehensive analysis of your gut bacteria that can help you understand how your diet and environment may be affecting your gut flora and health in general.
