In the study, healthy individuals over 90 years of age were shown to have the gut health of a 30-year-old. Dr. Friedman and Kim suggest ways to improve the health of your gut, including consuming fermented foods, apple cider vinegar, and probiotic supplements.

Kim Barnouin
Kim BarnouinBefore she was a Skinny Bitch, Kim Barnouin was a high school drop-out turned model who only crossed paths with a vegetable on her pizza. Today she is the co-author of the New York Times Bestseller, Skinny Bitch, with its sequels Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, Skinny Bitch: Bun in the Oven, Skinny Bitch: Just Bitchin, and a line of fitness DVDs.

As a kid, Kim used to spit veggies into her napkin. As a young adult, she couldn't get enough of earth's treats. It was during this transition that Kim became obsessed with nutrition. She got her hands on every book and enrolled in a Bachelor's program in Natural Health. 

She wouldn't stop there. 

This retired beach bum went on to receive a Master's in Holistic Nutrition and is currently working on her PhD. Learning about how food affects and heals many diseases and illnesses was something she wanted to share with everyone.
