I’ve been hearing about it for the last couple of years now, I’m sure you have too – healing your gut is the key to improving your health and losing weight.
- But what does that mean?
- How does one go about actually healing their gut?
- And is it something a mere mortal can actually accomplish within a busy lifestyle?
All of the information always left me with this question:
I hadn’t actually found a resource that not only addressed those questions but provided a clear, easy to follow plan for making it happen.
Before you go discounting this as yet another diet book in a sea of diet books designed to help people add to their pile of failed New Years resolutions, I want you to hear me out. Because I’ve read a lot of diet books. I’ve read a lot of nutritional science.
And this is the book I have been waiting for. A book that explains the science in a way that the average person can understand and provides an actionable plan to help you achieve a balanced digestive system.
The Skinny Gut Diet – Balance Your Digestive System for Permanent Weight Loss by Brenda Watson
The Skinny Diet starts out by explaining all about the bacteria that live in your gut. Sounds weird right? But it’s true! The human digestive tract has somewhere around 100 trillion bacteria living inside it, and the makeup of those bacteria are what determine whether you gain or lose weight.
The Skinny Gut Diet illustrates how the bacterial ecosystem in your gut is responsible for your weight due to the balance of good bacteria vs bad. The more bad bacteria you have, the more weight you gain and the harder it is for you to lose it. The key to weight loss is to find the right balance of good vs bad.
This is where it gets good. The Skinny Diet goes beyond the science (and did I mention the author writes in a way the average person can understand?) and provides a plan to help you achieve that balance.
Six Things That Gut Balance is Responsible For Within the Human Body
- Weight loss
- Eliminating weight gain
- Reducing silent inflammation
- Improving immune function
- Reducing digestive distress & controlling regularity
- Reducing depression and anxiety
Pretty amazing huh?
Ok, ok, I’m getting there.
When it comes to weight loss efforts, gut bacteria imbalance means extra calories absorbed, more fat on your body and more cravings – which keeps the cycle going again and again.
The Skinny Gut Diet will help you stop that cycle.
The Skinny Diet 3 Simple Steps
- Eat more fat (healthy fat) to reduce silent inflammation.
- Eat living foods every day to balance your gut.
- Eat protein at every meal and snack to eliminate cravings.
The Skinny Gut Diet is an easy-to-follow plan that will jump-start your digestive balance to set you on the road to long-term sustained weight loss.
And I’m going to show you, because I am going to be following the plan and reporting back to you on my progress. I am in my early 40s and pre-menopause has been making it quite challenging to maintain my weight. I can’t wait to get a handle on my gut health so I can sail right through all of these crazy changes my body is going through and come out lean and feeling fantastic on the other side!
