By focusing on digestive health as a route to true health, the Grayshott Plan helps to boost your energy and rebalance weight safely through a nutrient rich diet that will give you everything you need to face the demands of modern life.
The Plan dispels the misguided notion of ‘detoxifying’ through spartan, punitive regimes and instead focuses on regaining good health by eating the right foods to aid the body’s natural detoxification.
The Plan can confidently recommend quality grass-fed red meats, fish, eggs, fermented foods, butter, avocado, and organic vegetables. This is not a plan of privation but a sensible and satisfying approach to food that brings you back to feeling great.
The first section will introduce you to the ‘Plan’ and provide information and meal plans for a short-term course to rest and repair your digestive tract. The ‘Post-Plan’ information will show you more foods to introduce to your diet and keep your gut healthy.
The recipe section contains 100 delicious meals split into breakfasts, soups, main meals, vegetable sides, salads and special occasions and includes delicious, satisfying and nourishing meals, such as: Baked eggs with tomatoes, peppers and chorizo; Porchetta with plum and fig chutney; Grilled sole fillets marinated in ginger and tangerine; Crayfish cakes with coconut and mango, and many more.


I suffer from a digestive disorder..

so this book was of great interest to me.

It is written and designed to book digestive health and give you an understanding of your gut and general health.

Filled with recipes that are beautifully photographed, from smoothies to slow roasted lamb, each designed to clean the system and benefit your body.

The 10 principle of the plan of course are easy to follow in theory, but such is our individual eating habits these might be a little difficult at the beginning. That said the information given on how the digestive system works is interesting to read, and if like me you do have troubles it is also quite easy to see where you go wrong and how quickly it can be put right.

For both meat eaters and vegetarians, this is a full and comprehensive guide to better health.  With the help of this book I am going to start slow and easy and take it a step at a time and see how my system improves .

  1. Very interesting. I follow the lowfodmap diet for a number of issues but this looks like it would skirt around that diet. I buy cookery books then scribble all over them these days to ensure the recipes match my diet properly. But I think I might give this one a go.
