My name is David Reed. I’m the head recipe coach over at The Gut Revival. I started the team because I’ve seen first-hand how a disastrous diet can lead to terrible consequences for a person’s health.
If you’re like me, you’ve always struggled with bloating and inflammation. In my teens and early twenties, I could eat anything that I wanted, without a care in the world… I’d pig out on a big burger and feel ready to run a marathon right after. Man, I wish I could go back to those days.
But then it seemed like 30 hit and my body started rejecting everything I was putting into it.
I was gassy (ewwwww)!
I was having some awful symptoms that I was scuffing off to being sick (but it was lasting seemingly forever):
The problem (at least for me) was that I never built a solid foundation for how I consume food because my body was so forgiving. I never figured out a healthy eating style. Which foods would give my body the nourishment that it needed without tasting bland…
But now, my body was shutting down. Even going on diets and eating healthy — I was still getting sick!
I had tried all of the crash diets, keto, paleo, the zone diet, expensive meal replacement shakes…. The list goes on.
All just temporary patches on a much deeper-rooted issue: My gut flora was wrecked!
The doctor diagnosed me with IBS...
That’s why my research led me right to probiotics, countless studies have shown the benefits they can have on improving your gut health.
Probiotics help balance the good bacteria and bad bacteria in your digestive system, promoting a healthy digestive tract and immune system.
Our body normally has what we would call “good” (helpful bacteria) and “bad” (harmful bacteria). Maintaining the correct balance between these bacteria is necessary for optimal health.
Diet — alongside age and genetics — may influence the composition of the bacteria in the body (microbiota). An imbalance is called dysbiosis, and this has possible links to diseases of the intestinal tract, including ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, and Crohn's disease, as well as more systemic diseases such as obesity and type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
I can get more into the science, but the fact is — Probiotics are good!
The research around probiotics is everywhere, I’m sure you’ve already heard about them plenty. They’re important to have to maintain a well-balanced gut, especially in today’s age and diets.
So… why not just take a probiotic supplement? Well, I did try them…
Unfortunately, I had a terrible reaction to Probiotics when I took them! I knew all about the benefits, but I couldn’t get over the side-effects.
I was feeling even more dazed and bloated than before. It made me almost nauseous! Looking online I realized I’m not the only one. Taking a pill for your probiotics isn’t the answer…
I started researching other ways to get the benefits of probiotics and everyone was pointing to the same place — your diet (it wasn’t going to hurt me to go on a diet anyways).
The problem? There wasn’t too much information on a probiotic-rich diet. All I could find (in short) was: “Yogurt is good, Burgers are bad”.
There were no good recipes for this! I turned to the fad diets and tried those instead: Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, etc… I GAINED WEIGHT.
I ran into the exact same health issues I was having before. I needed the benefits of probiotics in my diet to repair my gut first before these diets were going to help me with anything.
So I started this journey on making probiotic-rich delicious foods for all meals of the day (and in between), which has led me to this book today: The Gut Revival
Once I discovered how easy it was to incorporate probiotic-rich foods in my diet, my relationship with food started to shift back. I decided to create DELICIOUS and healthy recipes that mended my gut instead of hurting it.
Now I look forward to my meals every day (It’s easy — they’re healing me!)… With ZERO guilt.
My “Gut-Revival Diet” is all about eating food you love — but integrating ingredients that are rich in probiotics.
Picking a diet and sticking to it is the most important step to losing weight and improving your overall health… but that’s where people struggle — the “stick to it” part.
It can be hard to stick to a diet like Paleo, Keto, Mediterranean, Vegan, etc… You get cravings and feel like you’re sacrificing the foods you love.
That’s why when I wrote The Gut Revival, I wanted to make sure it would work for people of all walks of life. Whether you’re looking to shed a few pounds, fight inflammation or just feel healthier, you don’t need to change your life to take this on.
Prepare a few probiotic-rich sauces for your salads, fit a Gut Revival meal in for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just prepare some snacks or drinks for yourself to have throughout the day… that’s all that I needed to do.
I immediately started noticing a difference.
First off, I wasn’t feeling so bloated and dazed like I was from the probiotic pills.
Within a few weeks I was noticing my IBS symptoms disappearing, I lost 15 pounds in 4 weeks and the best part? I was feeling energized and overall healthier!
Anyways… I’m sure you’re glad to hear what I did to heal my gut, but now that begs the question of how you can heal yours?
It’s easy! After going through a leaky gut myself, I decided to start compiling every creation I made to mend it. From the breakfasts, to the sauces, to the little snacks, to the family-favorite dinners (with a probiotic spin).
I compiled everything, polished up the recipes (using my family as the guinea pigs) and put together a perfect guide (for myself at first) for a probiotic-rich diet.
Once the book was complete, my publisher loved it! They decided to print just a few copies at first (2,500 total) to check interest levels, this diet was brand new, we had no idea what people were going to think.
Initial interest was BREATHTAKING! Customers loved it and couldn’t stop ranting and raving about it. The 2,500 copies were gone in a week — we could hardly keep up with demand.
My publisher set me up with my own team and community to make sure we can keep up with demand and keep in touch with customers.
Since then we’ve stocked up on copies and made the book WAYY better! I’ve put in some extra recipes including some of my decade-old 5-star family recipes with a probiotic-rich spin.
And we’ll prove it to you with a FREE copy of The Gut Revival!
You’ll get the full physical 88-page book, sent straight to your door.

There’s absolutely zero commitment that we’re asking you to make or hidden future charges. We just want to give you the information and know-how to get started. Something that I wish I had when I began this journey.
For the longest time, I kept my struggles with food and IBS to myself. I wouldn’t talk about them with anyone — especially not those closest to me.
I felt like no one would understand what I was going through. And let’s be honest… its not really a “dinner-table” conversation.
I was trying to eat properly… and get enough exercise. But I was so exhausted and bloated all the time. Not to mention having to deal with bad inflammation.
For so many years, I had tried fad diets or counting calories — they weren’t working for me. There were so many rules attached to my eating that it was never enjoyable, and because I had a leaky gut, none of these diets were helping me repair the real issue.
I was losing motivation and almost gave up.
When I developed the Gut Revival Diet — I realized that the first step to a balanced diet, weight loss and mending chronic inflammation was mending your gut flora.
If you’re struggling with chronic inflammation or feeling bloated, those fad diets you read about all the time may not work at all. The first step to a happier life is a happier and healthier gut.
It made food interesting again! Creating these unique recipes that were healing your gut at the same time felt revolutionary, and I was finally feeling a difference!
The Gut Revival Diet FIXED me!
All of my life, I have watched the people closest to me struggle with their eating habits. I never wanted anyone to feel like they had to starve themselves to keep the weight off. Or try diets for months without any progress.
Food should give you energy! But if you’re in a constant haze from inflammation, it never feels that way.
And that’s what really hooked me on the probiotics and made me develop the Gut Revival. Mending your gut with simple daily substitutions and snacks is EASY! And wow is it better than taking pills (that didn’t work for me anyways and have horrible side-effects).
This is what I live for… people coming together to enjoy a delicious (and nutritious) meals and feeling great afterwards.
I found myself powering through my day without relying on coffee. I was waking up in the morning without hitting the snooze button multiple times… It was like I was in a new body!
Once I started whipping up my unique Gut Revival food, I was constantly asked by friends and family for my recipes.
David! Everything you make in the Kitchen is so unique. I can’t get over how delicious everything is!
Every day I see how my recipes are impacting the lives of people around me, and I love it. My friends and family are all seeing the changes to their blood pressure, boosted energy, and have even lost several pounds.
I know that with these recipes, that are full of gut-healing probiotics, I’ll get to enjoy their company for many, many more years.
Originally I had no intention of creating a recipe book. But friends and family were always asking for my recipes… And truthfully, I got tired of writing them all out, so as I was creating my guide I just planned to give me family some copies.
Once I finished the guide, I realized it was something so much larger.
I wanted to prove that these recipes could sustain a busy life and give more energy… So I tested them directly with our publisher and our team of health experts — the recipes were a smash hit!
That's why I love my Gut Revival team, it was just such a natural fit to share these recipes with everyone!
The whole team got to work that day, we were going to get these recipes published and in the hands of the community.
The result? We are beyond excited to present 88 pages of crowd-pleasing, full-color hits that will delight you any time of day.
Each page you turn you’ll find a brand new recipe along with easy to follow directions, concise ingredient list and a breath-taking image of the dish.
You won’t believe that these mouth-watering dishes are rich in probiotics and GOOD FOR YOU!
Start the day with Powerfood Muffins (page 26), drizzle on the Kombucha Dressing (page 35) to your favorite salad for lunch and close out the day with Chef David’s 5-star Sheet Pan Traditional Salmon Dinner (page 80).
All of these amazing recipes will have you begging the question:
Will This “Diet” Really Work?
What’s so refreshing about the Gut Revival Diet is that you get to dictate it yourself. There are no hard and fast rules about what you can and can’t eat.
You can take this diet at your own pace and even match it up with other diets. If you’re intrigued by the Keto or Mediterranean diets, I encourage you to use our sauces and snacks in your day alongside them.
The majority of meals in the book even have easy substitutes for these diets!
Just remember, the most important thing is that you’re getting your daily probiotic intake, which means you should be eating at least 1 meal a day from the book.
One delicious recipe a day and you’re on your way to mending your gut. Watch your fatigue, inflammation and bloating fade away, while eating delicious foods you will LOVE.
You’ll reach your goal in no time!
But this is more than just a recipe book.
It is a lifestyle guide. My Gut Revival Diet is a guide to steer you in the direction to getting probiotic-rich foods into your diet.
Then you’ll wish you knew it was this easy earlier! Which leads me to the best part…
Nobody has the time for complicated recipes.
I’m constantly running around after my kids or at the office.
Spending time in the grocery store searching for weird ingredients, gathering stuff you’ll only ever use in 1 recipe and then will sit in your cupboard to be passed down to the next generation…
Not to mention slaving away in the kitchen for hours on end.
Nobody needs that.
As a busy man myself… watching after my grandkids, spending time with my daughter and my wife. You know what? Just sitting on a chair reading a magazine… there I said it! All of this stuff is more important to me than a complicated recipe.
That’s why none of the recipes in this book require fancy techniques or hard-to-find ingredients.
So many of the recipes in this book can be made in a single pan or bowl taking no longer than 15 minutes for most.
And the snacks are perfect for when you’re on-the-go or in the kid’s lunches. It was the best way to make sure my wife and kids were getting their proper intake of probiotics.
We had all struggled with our diets before, but after taking on the Gut Revival, we feel so energized! Even if it’s just a single delicious snack a day.
In fact, these recipes are so easy that I tried them out on my sister — who burns toast probably 75% of the time. And even she could make them!
So many of the ingredients that we use in this book can readily be found in most pantries or at your local grocer.
