Restoring your gut health - How does it work?

Because when you change your diet, your gut can benefit immediately from the amazing foods you start consuming. We think it is so important to get healthy on the inside before you can truly be healthy on the outside.  This is why we've put together a comprehensive three day cleanse for our members –

We all can benefit from:

  • Reducing inflammation.

  • Improving the balance of your gut bacteria.

  • Helping you lose a few excess pounds (which, at first, will be water weight).

  • Developing an improved sense of well-being.

If your gut is likely damaged and you are experiencing a lot of the symptoms I mentioned in the last blog,  you will need more time to fix it up. That’s where the 6- week program will help to completely repair your gut, and repel bad gut bugs. Basically, you will be starving out your bad gut bacteria – the ones that make you feel sick, or fat.

How does it work?

It’s simple. You’ve got to say NO to some foods. You’ll start by cutting out all

  • Dairy

  • Grains or pseudo-grains

  • Fruit

  • Sugar

  • Seeds

  • Eggs

  • Soy

  • Nightshade plants

  • Roots

  • Tubers

  • Corn

  • Soy

  • Canola

  • Inflammatory oils

  • Farm animal proteins

But, never fear. You won’t be giving up everything! We've provided you will a simple program that includes

Veggies (Specifically the ones listed below)

  • Broccoli

  • Brussels sprouts

  • Cauliflower

  • Cabbage

  • Arugula

  • Kale

  • Onions

  • Cilantro

  • Romaine

  • Spinach

  • Mint

You can have either fresh or frozen veggies, but always (I repeat always) make sure they’re organic.

Protein

While on the starter cleanse, you can consume small portions of fish and small portions of pastured chicken. But, you don’t want to consume more than two 4 ounce portions of wild-caught fish or pastured chicken a day. For a visual reference, think of a deck of cards.

Oils and Good Fats

When it comes to good fats, will should have a whole avocado every day. And we'll also be using these oils to start

  • Avocado oil

  • Coconut oil

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

What to do when you want a snack?

Of course, while on the cleanse, you’ll crave snacks.

During the 3-Day cleanse you'll be munching on romaine lettuce boats with guacamole or a half-avocado. Just drizzle a little lemon juice and olive oil on top! And (approved) we'll eventually be adding nuts like chestnuts, pine nuts, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, and hazelnuts are always great to tide you over until lunch or dinner.

Dressing, Sauces, and Seasoning

When it comes to dressing your food, the simple rule of thumb is to stay away from all processed dressings and sauces. We will use a lot of lemon and olive oil to start then expand to use:

  • Vinegar

  • Mustard

  • Fresh cracked black pepper

  • Sea salt

  • Fresh herbs

  • Fresh spices

Hydration

You'll fill up on 8 cups a day of water (tap or sparkling), unsweetened tea, or coffee.

Finally …

Recovery

Try to get eight hours of sleep of sleep every night. And get light exercise over the course of the three days.

Now, the cleanse is not necessarily easy, but I promise, it does get easier. Just do the best you can. Go at your own pace. Take it easy if you have to. Remember, other than proteins … you can eat as much of the YES foods above as you like.

Again remember … just by starting the cleanse, you’ll be able to change the ratio of your bad to good bacteria. It’s great news.

For those of you who don’t want to participate in the cleanse, but do want to know what foods are helping you, here’s a snapshot of  of the yes foods that our challengers will be utilizing.
