The Swift Diet: 4 Weeks to Mend the Belly, Lose the Weight, and Get Rid of the Bloat
by Kathie Madonna Swift, MS, RDN, LDN and Joseph Hooper, with a foreword by Mark Hyman, MD.
"The gut is the highway to health or the pathway to pathology."
-- Kathie Madonna Swift
THE SWIFT DIET is the new, revolutionary health and diet plan which shows women how to fix their digestive problems and lose weight permanently, by changing the way they eat and altering their gut bacteria.
THE SWIFT DIET introduces us to the microbiome – the collection of genes belonging to the bacteria that live inside our bodies. These bacteria impact just about every aspect of our lives, from food cravings and how our bodies store fat, to our emotions, our digestion and our immune system response. The good news is, by paying close attention to how you eat and how you live, you can influence how the microbiome behaves for the better. In other words, “Take care of your gut bacteria, and they’ll take care of you!”

Ultrametabolism by Mark Hyman. Contributing author Kathie Madonna Swift, MS, RDN, LDN
UltraMetabolism offers groundbreaking insights and perspectives to the complex problem of weight issues and obesity -- and beyond. It's really "UltraHealth", outlining core principles for consideration such as inflammation and detoxification. It was also one of the first books (if not the first) to promote the idea that "adverse food reactions" (an umbrella term for food allergies and intolerances) contribute to inflammation, and that obesity is not only an inflammatory disorder but a systemic problem that must be addressed with a food as medicine approach.
The menus and recipes Kathie created for the book are all gluten-free and dairy-free, a pathway to healthy weight which continues to gain support in the field of medical nutrition therapy.
