How to Shrink that Belly

SHRINK THAT BELLY (1)I’m not sure if you are aware but your gut does a lot more than only digestioning your food. The gut is designed to help in maintaining your immune system, produces 90% of the body’s serotonin and helps in digestion. The foods we eat, air we breathe and medicine we take can cause gut functions to either improve or become damaged. Depending on the stress that your gut undergoes can determine the amount of energy you have, your mood and how well your body is able to receive the nutrients and minerals you are taking in or removing the toxins properly.

With the help of food journaling I have been able to realize that my gut was severly damaged and needed some TLC. I hope that these tips I’m about to share with you will help you just as much as they have helped me πŸ™‚

-Remove the foods that could be causing the inflammation & bloat. Several examples would be fake butters, wheat, soy, corn, nuts, eggs, and even bell peppers
-Stop drinking toxins! Drinks that contain sugars, high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners contribute to increased belly fat
– Ease up on the grains. Even if you don’t have celiac disease, you may be sensitive to gluten so limit the amounts of grains you are taking in to 1-2 servings per day of a gluten free option
– Reduce the dairy! You would not believe the amount of people that just cannot tolerate cow’s dairy milk, yet they drink it every day. Try switching to unsweetened almond or cashew milk and remove the cheese from your diet.

I promise you that with the above tips your belly will go down, you will feel lighter, have more energy and as a result…even shed some pounds πŸ™‚

Please feel free share these tips with someone that could benefit by sharingΒ this post πŸ™‚
