Why is gut health so important

  • The gut plays an essential role in health and wellbeing
  • Poor diet upsets the gut microbiome
  • 50% of Australians experience gut symptoms
  • Obese individuals experience more gut symptoms than those of normal weight

Symptoms of poor gut health

Every year at least 50% of Australian adults experience gut health symptoms like bloating, heartburn and constipation and 1 in 7 experience what is considered distressing gut symptoms.

This makes sense as we also know that 83% of Australians are not getting the amount of fibre that is suggested by the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

Symptoms of poor gut health include:

  • Bloated stomach
  • Heartburn
  • Abdominal pain
  • Flatulence and burping
  • Growling stomach
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea

Research shows that being overweight means you have a bigger chance of experiencing poor gut health. However, the research also shows that a diet high in fibre and resistant starch, like the Total Wellbeing Diet for Gut Health, can help alleviate these symptoms.

Why should you improve your gut health

Your gut serves many crucial functions in your body. Apart from digesting food and extracting essential nutrients from what you eat, the gut also:

  • tells you when to start and stop eating
  • releases the hormone ghrelin which stimulates your appetite
  • prevents potentially harmful substances from entering the body

A well-functioning gut helps you lose or maintain weight and can prevent diseases like Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. That is why we created the Total Wellbeing Diet for Gut Health diet plan.

How to improve gut health

Created by our experts the Total Wellbeing Diet for Gut Health features a 12-week gut health menu plan, which includes delicious recipes based on higher protein and higher fibre foods.

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet can help teach you how to naturally improve gut health by enforcing healthy dieting habits while also keeping meals fun.

It is recommended that you eat 35-40 grams of fibre to promote good gut health.

The combination of protein and fibre keeps you feeling full for longer which means you eat less without feeling hungry. It is recommended that you eat 35 to 40 grams of fibre per day. We believe in using a diversity of fibre rich foods, which are slowly introduced to the diet over time to make sure you get used to it. 

One key innovation in the Total Wellbeing Diet for Gut Health plan is the inclusion of resistant starch which has been shown to prevent and slow the progression of many diet-related diseases.
