While a washboard stomach is incentive enough to watch what you eat, we’ve all heard the maxim, ‘you are what you eat’. Research has established a connection between the gut and the brain that indicates that if you take care of your gut, it will take care of you in return. Studies indicate that good bacteria in the body help keeping that excess weight in check and ward off numerous health issues while at it.
What to eat: Prebiotic and probiotic food like yogurt, bananas, garlic, carrots, green beans, etc.
Your worst enemies: Antibiotics, medication like birth control, diets high in carbs and sugar, processed foods, diets low in fermentable fibres, wheat, industrial seed oils, etc.
It’s never too late to start restoring your gut health to optimal levels. Healing your gut lining is optimal for you to build a strong immune system. In a easy four step process, eliminate toxins like caffeine, alcohol and processed foods from your diet, repair the gut by taking in a lot of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and more, give your gut the time it needs to restore the good bacteria you’ve lost and lastly, ensure you have enough hydrochrolic acid in your diet, eat food that promotes healthy digestion.
