Eat Everything lays out compelling new evidence implicating food additives as the real culprits behind diet-related diseases and shares simple, actionable advice to heal. We’re constantly told to fear carbs, gluten, and dairy, and we turn to strict diets to solve our health problems. Yet Americans still have one of the highest rates of obesity and diabetes in the world, and millions suffer from digestive ailments like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Digging into emerging research, Dr. Sherling realized it’s not the foods but the food additives, especially emulsifiers, that are at the root of our problems. Our bodies can’t digest them, but they feed our microbiomes and they’re everywhere in the ultra-processed foods that make up about half of our daily diets. Dr. Sherling lays out the research on food additives and offers a straightforward guide to eating just about everything (yes, even bread, pasta, and ice cream!) without pain, worry, or guilt.
After struggling with IBS herself, Dr. Dawn Harris Sherling's symptoms seemingly disappeared while in Italy. In an effort to help her patients and herself, Dr. Sherling began learning more about how food additives such as emulsifiers, thickeners, and stabilizers are wreaking havoc on our microbiomes and how eliminating them can reverse several diet-related diseases. She currently sees patients at a clinic for the underserved in South Florida and teaches at the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University where she is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine.
Discover the surprising reason restrictive diets don’t work—and a practical, science-based guide to reclaim your health through the power of real food.
