The gut microbiome, bacteria in the gut harnessing energy from food, may play a role in obesity and provide a causal link to metabolic syndrome. Current research in this field will be described and linked to obesity and other diseases. Fiber intake, vegan & omnivore patterns and their impact on the microbiome will be explored. Planned with The Weight Management DPG
Describe research in healthy adults linking dietary patterns (vegan vs omnivores) or feeding trials (altering fiber intake) to the gut microbiome and plasma metabolome in healthy volunteers
Explain causal links between microbiome, metabolic syndrome and disease
Discuss research linking microbiome and metabolome to obesity
