In the book, Pete emphasizes a six-step approach to improving gut health. One critical step is targeting inflammation that is most often seen in people who are bloated or overweight. This inflammation is the first sign that something is wrong. To remedy this, people need get their bodies into a state where they can self-heal through eating the correct foods.
Another important aspect of enhancing gut health is improving the integrity of the gut wall. This is accomplished through removing inflammatory foods from the diet. The most common foods include grains, dairy, and legumes. Consuming foods such as bone broth and fermented vegetables can be beneficial in improving joint, digestion, and skin issues as well.
The book points out other helpful foods and related recipes. One such food is lemon juice. Lemon juice is helpful in healing the gut, especially when squeezed into a glass of warm water first thing in the morning. This can help to stimulate digestive acids and get the bile flowing.

Other foods to consider in one’s daily routine include kombucha and water kefir, which contain beneficial probiotics. Pete also emphasized the importance of consuming offal, which is nutrient dense.
