The Lose Your Belly Diet: Change Your Gut, Change Your Life, Book by Travis Lane Stork
About The Book:
The Lose Your Belly Diet Book by Travis Lane Stork, We want to be healthy. We want to be lean. And we want to lose that annoying fat around our bellies! We can achieve ALL of these goals with the Super-G Life. Based on exciting new research about the dramatic benefits of vibrant gut health and a diverse gut microbiome, the Super-G Life nurtures your gut while burning off excess weight and harmful belly fat.
The Super-G Life is built around a very clear, research-based concept: Eating food that increases, feeds, and protects the microbes in your gut paves the way for weight loss, a slimmer middle, and better overall health. It’s not just about weight loss. Having great gut health is linked to good health throughout your body.
Scientists in this rapidly growing field are finding connections between the gut microbiome and a healthy immune system and gastrointestinal system, as well as autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease), allergies and asthma, and even cancer.
With every study that s published, scientists become more convinced that a healthy gut leads to a healthy body. We’re accustomed to thinking of bacteria as bad and some are but most of the bacteria and microbes in our guts do amazing things, like working with our immune system to fight disease and helping our bodies digest food.
Not only cant we live without them, but as their numbers and diversity increase, so too does our health. I like to think of the microbes in my gut as my little buddies who are helping me stay healthy every minute of the day. And I love the idea of feeding them the foods they need to flourish foods that you’ll find in abundance in the Super-G Life. Research is uncovering ways to boost gut health and nurture the gut microbiome. In this book, well look at all of the ways you can improve your own gut health. We’ll start with diet.
The Super-G daily eating plan, which picks up where The Doctor s Diet left off, provides gut-enhancing foods, meal plans, and recipes based on the latest research into gut health. Foods in the Super-G diet help increase, feed, and protect the microbes in the gut. But diet is just one factor in gut health. We’ll also look at the many other steps you can take to support your gut microbiome, from avoiding unnecessary antibiotics to worrying a little less about dirt and germs.
Even the choices you make about how you bring your children into the world can have an impact on your family s microbiomes. And here s another reason to take good care of your gut health: Every part of your body benefits, including your skin. That s right: When your gut is happy, your skin glows with health and you look and feel younger. In Super-G Life, we will cover all the bases, giving readers everything they need to make dramatic changes in their GI health, their weight, their belly fat, and their overall health.

Dr. Travis Stork is an Emmy(R)-nominated co-host of the award-winning talk show “The Doctors” and a practicing board-certified emergency medicine physician. He graduated magna cum laude from Duke University and earned his M.D. with honors from the University of Virginia, where he was elected into the prestigious honor society of Alpha Omega Alpha for outstanding academic achievement.
Born and raised in the Midwest, Dr. Stork is a fervent believer in helping patients feel empowered when it comes to their health. Dr. Stork practices what he preaches and likes to teach by example, biking to work every day, rain or shine. While he doesn’t expect individuals to give up their cars, he is passionate about enlightening individuals on simple ways to attain and maintain good health based on their own life and circumstances. He believes that oftentimes when people come to the E.R., it’s already too late.
That’s why he takes such pride in teaching people how to avoid preventable illness before it happens. Most people don’t realize that they make over 200 health-related decisions every day that dictates how well and how long they live. Dr. Stork believes health is not about the gym or a deprivation diet; health is achieved by focusing on those seemingly inconsequential 200-plus decisions people make throughout the day.
Your Gut Health/Weight Loss Opportunity Let me start by saying that I love food. Let me also say that the most important health lesson I’ve ever learned is to let food be my medicine and not my poison. This has been my guiding principle for quite some time now. But here’s the truth: our knowledge of how food affects our health and weight is always changing and evolving.
The Lose Your Belly Diet is a book I was inspired to write because of our rapidly changing knowledge of the human gut microbiome and its effect on our health and weight. If you don’t know what “human gut microbiome” means, don’t worry, because you soon will! It’s exciting stuff, and my goal is to be there with you every step of the way as you learn how to optimize gut health and maximize weight loss—especially the loss of harmful belly fat.
This plan focuses on food choices and portion control strategies that help you eat more of the high-quality foods that nourish you and make you feel full and satisfied, and fewer of the low-quality foods that lead to excess weight gain and fat accumulation. It checks all of the healthy-eating boxes while filling you up with delicious, enjoyable foods.
The Lose Your Belly Diet is an evolution of The Doctor’s Diet, a book I wrote a couple of years ago. I loved that book because it’s such an effective, easy-to-follow plan and was the way I used to eat. But since that book came out, we’ve learned so much important new information about gut health and the impact of beneficial bacteria on our overall health and weight.
It’s changed the way I eat and it should change the way you eat, too. This plan tells you the how and why of enjoying life-supporting foods, and it does so without deprivation. In fact, it gives you more freedom and flexibility than pretty much any diet out there. Not only does it encourage you to eat an abundance of gut-supporting foods, but it makes room for bread, pasta, and other whole grains that so many diets cut out these days.
And even more fantastic: this diet makes room for things like chocolate, wine, and coffee, which not only make life worth living (in my humble opinion) but appear to be beneficial for your gut bacteria, too!
