Gut Feeling


Today I wanted to share with you something super important that may not have crossed your mind before... It’s how your gut health may be affecting how your body gains and loses weight. In recent years, a ‘healthy gut’ has become the ‘big thing’ in the health and wellness world. And it’s for a good reason. It’s because the gut can be the source for major systematic issues if it’s not balanced and working properly. Inside your gut, there are trillions of ‘good bacteria’ or microbes which are critical to your overall health and the body’s systematic functions, one of those functions is absorption of nutrients for storage or energy. Just to be clear, gut bacteria won't directly cause you to lose weight. Rather, it can have a domino effect on your body… ...which will determine how much nutrients from food is actually being absorbed by the body and how hungry you feel… thereby indirectly influencing if you gain, lose, or maintain your weight levels. And when your digestive system is firing on all cylinders, it helps naturally boost your metabolism and help you burn calories more efficiently. You’ll also be less bloated, feel less sluggish, and have more energy. Not sure if you have a gut issue? Now, I’m no doctor,
