Quercus has acquired The Gut Makeover by Jeannette Hyde, a practical healthy eating guide factoring in gut bacteria for the knock-on impact it has on health and weight.
Jane Sturrock bought British Commonwealth rights from Jon Elek at United Agents for the title, which is due to be published at the end of this year on 31st December 2015 (RRP £14.99).
Sturrock said: "This is the first practical book to take the science of gut health to the mass market. You can’t open the weekend papers at the moment without seeing something about the gut being the second brain and how it has a big impact on your weight and your mood. Jeannette is an expert in her field and The Gut Makeover offers all the benefits of a healthy digestive system in an accessible four-week plan – and the results are staggering."
Hyde is a leading nutritional therapist and regular BBC commentator, who works with companies and brands to share her message that a healthy gut is essential to a healthy life. She runs a private practice in central London working with clients on gut-related issues to improve weight, skin, mood, and boost wellbeing.
