What a hunter-gatherer diet does to the body in just three days: https://apple.news/AOoT5DNr2SY24DwRLg320TA
Fascinating. But how can we do that in our city environments? Eat our guinea pigs?

I guess having a veggie patch helps.

This made for fascinating reading! We probably can't accommodate fresh porcupine in the OMS diet but we can make sure we eat lots of root vegetables and there is nothing to stop us foraging for edible leaves and fruits in the countryside. And if anyone is minded to try Baobob, it's available from Aduna.com (who ship worldwide).


BBC Radio has just broadcast a really good programme about the diet & microbiome of the Hadza tribe that features Professor Tim Spector along others:

The programme is available from the BBC website for the next 30 days. Well worth listening to! Anyone outside the UK who would like to access the programme may find the following page helpful:
The Gut Microbiome is KEY to optimal health.
The OMS site & forum are brilliant! Thanks, everyone! :D
One of the big problems with our food supply is that so much of what we consume has become overly sanatized, packaged, and barcoded LOL. (I often tell people who want to alter their diet, eat better, and improve some existing health problems, that the best thing they can do is go on a "bar code" free diet. Just eat what they feel is healthy and fresh but nothing with a bar code on it!) Maybe this will become the new fad diet--The Dr Phil Bar Code Free Diet Plan!

The problem is that so many of the commercial outlets for food distribution have overly sanitized and processed our foods to aid in distribution and profit making. Take Trader Joe's (in the States) for example. Most of what they sell (even with their organic produce) is overly washed, packaged, bar coded, etc. To get this stuff to market, most is picked way early and thus the nutrient content is also impacted. This has been the trend for groceries for a number of years now.

From a "how can this really benefit your microbiome perspective," this is basically sterile food. The good microbes have been taken away. A much better thing is to grow your own organics or to shop for your produce at local farmer's markets, just lightly rinse off what you eat, and then enjoy. Produce harvested this way is likely much more beneficial. What's becoming very important and the conversation we need to be having isn't just what we eat or avoid but the quality and source of what we eat.

I think articles like the above and new research that is being published about foods and the microbiome are starting to really shine the light on this.
