5 books to achieve your 2022 health goals

These books debunk diet myths and teach you how to eat well for happiness and health.

As we embark on the new year we are starting to think about our goals for 2022 and how we can set ourselves up for a successful year.

To help you achieve a happy and healthy 2022, we are sharing a number of helpful books that will empower you to reach your goals, whether it be eating healthier, learning more about your body, or nurturing your mind.

Fibre Fuelled

Award-winning gastroenterologist Dr Will Bulsiewicz has a plan to help you fix your health with fibre and not fads.

As a former junk-food junkie, Dr B knows first-hand the power of fibre to dramatically transform our health. The good news is that our guts can be trained. Fibre-rich and real foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts and legumes start working quickly and maintain your long-term health, promote weight loss and allow you to thrive from the inside out.

Fibre Fuelled is so much more than a health book. It's a step-by-step methodology to stop the misinformation caused by the diet industry and show you the simple, science-backed process for a lifestyle that is effortless, sustainable and above all else, it transforms your health by optimising your gut microbiome.

With a 28-day jumpstart program with menus and over 70 plant-fuelled recipes, along with essential advice on food sensitivities and detailed shopping lists, Fibre Fuelled offers the blueprint to start turbocharging your gut for lifelong health.

The Better Brain

This book explores how nutrition can help you overcome anxiety, depression, ADHD and stress.  

Leading scientists Bonnie Kaplan and Julia Rucklidge have dedicated their careers to researching the role that diet and nutrition play in our mental health. Together they have published several hundred peer-reviewed studies – those from the last two decades reveal the healing power of nutrients and the surprising role they play in brain health.

In this paradigm-shifting book, Kaplan and Rucklidge share their ground-breaking research for the first time and explain how to feed your brain to stabilise your mood, stave off depression and make yourself more resilient to daily stress. 

The Plant Power Doctor

This is a simple prescription for a healthier you and includes delicious recipes to transform your health.

British family doctor Gemma Newman explores how a simple change in diet helps many common chronic illnesses – from diabetes and heart disease to obesity – and the science that explains why it works.

Enjoy over 60 delicious meal ideas to kick-start your plant-powered eating, along with simple shopping lists and meal plans. This book contains everything you need to futureproof your body and mind.

The Science of Nutrition

Debunk the diet myths and learn how to eat well for health and happiness.

Is a vegan diet healthier? Should I try going low-carb? Is it always a bad idea to skip a meal? Are superfoods all they're cracked up to be? Is fat still bad for you? Can I eat to improve my chances of conceiving?

Recognising that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to nutrition, this ground-breaking book has the answers to all your food-related questions, covering every conceivable topic – from gut bacteria to weight management, to heart health and immune support, to vegan diets and intermittent fasting, and everything in between.

The Proof is in the Plants

What if there was a way of eating that may help us live healthier for longer and protect the future of our planet, too?

The good news is that evidence now shows a plant-based diet may offer us exactly that – and straight-talking nutritionist Simon Hill has done the hard work translating the science into actionable advice for everyday life.

Before transitioning to a plant-based diet Simon held many of the common misconceptions. But instead he experienced incredible improvements in his energy levels, digestion, mental clarity and post-workout recovery after making the shift.

This book covers the reasons we’re all so confused about what to eat, evidence showing how a plant-based diet might reduce the risks of heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes, cancer and dementia, as well as practical tips for making the shift.
