Why You Should Focus on Gut Health For Weight Loss

If you find yourself stuck in the holiday gut rut year over year, a little weight gain and an extra pair of stretchy pants in your Amazon cart, I encourage you to educate yourself on gut health.

Your gut bugs may be the one thing causing you to eat the stale Halloween candy or liking the social media ad for a sweatshirt which reads, “Thou Shall Not Try Me.” 

When there is an imbalance in your gut health (dysbiosis) it can cause an influx of toxins. These toxins can block hunger hormone receptors modifying your eating behaviors causing you to eat Aunt Mel’s fruit cake. The hunger hormones which regulate satiety are activated by binding to bacteria. So the feelings of hunger are coordinated with the diversity of your microbiota. (1)  

Symptoms from gut dysbiosis or toxic bacteria show up as “common” life nags.

Side effects of poor gut health include:

  •  Fatigue
  •  Weight gain
  •  Gastrointestinal issues (IBS, IBD, Constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, etc.)
  •  Food Intolerances and/or food allergies
  •  Joint and muscle pain
  •  Headaches
  • Skin issues (acne, dryness, rosacea, etc.)
  •  Depression, anxiety, and mood swings

A symptom is a result of an under lying issue upstream. I tell you from experience when you focus on addressing a specific symptom and not the whole self you will miss the mark. You will find yourself needing cups, capsules, or shots of caffeine to address your extreme fatigue. You will also continue the dirty food cycle of deprive, binge, guilty, shame, and REPEAT.

Why I focus on gut health is because it has a direct connection to all other organs. The good gut bugs have a direct impact on your ability to lose weight, according to a new study published in the American Society for Microbiology (ASM)'s journal mSystems. When you fuel well, absorb well, assimilate well, reduce hidden stressors, your gut will start to resurrect.

Gut resurrection can be a tidiest task. I’ve been studying it for years and there’s so much science and studies still to learn. This is why I designed a simple step-by-step program to help you through the confusion of gut health. My new launched program Gut Revival Holiday provides you with Holiday Survival Tips so that you ditch the stretchy pants and head into the new year without depriving yourself the first 30 days. Join me November 1st for my LIVE program videos. Learn more here-> Gut Revival Holiday

How would it feel to resurrect your gut and slip, NOT squeeze, into those new pair of pants?
