Eating a diversity of plants should be the golden rule of eating ~ Dr Will Bulsiewicz
Biodiversity is crucial. It affects all ecosystems, either on a large (Amazon rainforest) or small (your gut) scale. When biodiversity erodes we see that these ecosystems become unhealthy. To support a diversity of microbes in your gut you need a diversity of plants in your diet. Why? Because of the thousands of unique types of fiber present in each unique plant, that feed a specific gut bacteria species. If you don't eat a specific food, the gut microbiota that thrive on that food starve. This can lead to food sensitivities, bloating, and other digestive discomfort, due to the fact that your microbiome doesn’t have the appropriate tools to digest or absorb what you’re feeding it.
Research has found, that regardless of whether it’s Paleo, Vegan, Low Fat, High Carb, or any other diet, the Number One key predictor of a healthy, happy gut microbiome is the amount of variety of plant foods in your diet.
Can you take a guess as to how many plants you eat each week? If you’re the average American, that number is a sad, meager 15.
Experts recommend eating a minimum of 30 unique varieties of plants each week, to ensure the health and abundance of your microbiome.
