Three Ingredients Contributing To Your Bloating, Fatigue, And Anxiety

Learn About Three Ingredients Contributing To Your Bloating, Fatigue, And Anxiety That You Most Likely Consume On A Daily Basis!! We so greatly underestimate the effect that our food (and the accompanying ingredients) has on our gut. Being mindful of your nutrition is not just for those who are looking to lose a few inches or lower their blood pressure. The food we eat and what it does to our gut DIRECTLY affects countless bodily processes including hormone and neurotransmitter regulation, mental clarity, energy production, and so much more. Anxiety, Fatigue, and Bloating are just a FEW of the side effects of an unhealthy, unbalanced gut! There are MANY ingredients that disrupt your gut. But today, we’re addressing the top 3 that most of us consume in one way or another on a regular basis! 1. SUGAR- Fruit, juice, soda, wine, candy, chocolate, cereal, yogurt, snack bars, the list of sugar-containing foods is endless. Sugar is proven to increase gut permeability (meaning food particles are able to escape from your gut into your blood stream), increase inflammation (the number one cause of disease), and can therefore exacerbate leaky gut!  2. GLUTEN – Gluten contains a protein known as Gliadin that is known to cause gut permeability. In fact, no human is physically able to full break down gliadin. So even if you’re not “experiencing symptoms” when eating gluten-containing foods, that DOES NOT that your gut is free from the damage! Where can gluten be found? Wheat, Rye, Barley contain gluten, but it can also be found in more unexpected places such as sauces and gravies, and any recipe or product that contains wheat...

OBESOGENS PART 2 – Things That Are Keeping You Fat And Tired!

If you haven’t watched/read Part 1 of 2 of my Obesogens sequence, make sure you check it out! But here, we dive into PART 2 of Obesogens and how these natural and chemical compounds that you and your family come in contact with on a DAILY BASIS are affecting your body’s ability to lose weight, keep balanced hormones, maintain good energy levels, and more! In Part 1, we covered Pesticides, BPA, PFOA, and Pthalates. In Part 2, we dive into 5 more categories of Obesegens that you MUST look out for!   Phytoestrogens – produced naturally in plants, mainly soy! Solution? Avoid consumption of foods containing soy such as that found in protein powders, protein bars, and many processed foods Mercury - found in farm-raised fish, high fructose corn syrup, and canned foods! Solution? Avoid consumption of these products! Organotins – artificial chemicals like TBT that are used for industrial purposes such as TBT being used as a fungicide on ships. Are you eating ships? No, but these chemicals are getting in your water! Solution? Get a water filter for your house! Nonylphenols – used as surfactants in many cleaning products! Solution? Check for ingredients that fall in the nonylphenol family on your product labels!  PBDEs – compounds used as flame retardants that are found in furniture, building materials, vehicles, upholstery, mattresses, carpets, etc. Solution? Incorporate as many of these materials into your household that are PBDE-FREE!!!

OBESOGENS Are Keeping You Fat And Tired! Part 1!

OBESOGENS: Part 1 of 2 What are Obesogens? Obesogens are chemical compounds (that we happen to come in contact with on a daily basis) that disrupt our body’s ability to function properly! How does that affect the health and weight loss process for you? These obesogens negatively impact your hormones, increase the fat cells you have, decrease the calories you burn, and alter the way your body manages hunger. By continuing to come in contact with them on a regular basis, you’re making it MUCH harder on you and your family to achieve optimal health and maintain healthy weight! Of course the next question is, “Where can obesogens be found?” Because this list has several components, I split this series up into two parts. In Part 1, we talk about the top 4 obesogens you and your family are exposed to on a daily basis! 1.) Pesticides: a substance used for destroying insects or other organisms harmful to cultivated plants or to animals. Atrazine is the most common, and can be found in your water and on your produce! Atrazine actually SLOWS your thyroid hormone metabolism! What can you do about it?–> Buy organic (at least for the dirty dozen)–> Filter your tap water DIRTY DOZEN 2.) BPA: a synthetic estrogen used to make plastics hard. Where is it found? Plastic water bottles, plastic food storage containers, cans, your coffee lids, and canned foods. A 2012 study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that BPA is responsible for starting a biochemical cascade within fat cells that increases inflammation and promotes fat-cell growth!! What can you do about it?–> Anytime you...

Do You Crave Wine, Beer, or Liquor? Here Are Some Solutions!

Struggle with wine, beer, or liquor cravings? Here are my suggestions! First you have to zone in on why you’re craving it this specific beverage: Are you craving the taste? (sweet, dry, fermented, etc) Are you craving the feeling of relaxation? Are you looking for the buzz, or looking for the bite?! If craving taste, there are some great alternatives: Flavored Kombucha Hot Tea Iced Tea Sparkling Water If craving relaxation: It’s okay to replace the act of pouring yourself a glass of wine, making a cocktail, or grabbing a beer from the fridge and sitting down to decompress after work with some healthier but similar ritual. For many people, it turns out to be less about the consumption of alcohol and more about that time where we mark the end of you work day! Whatever your routine consists of while you consume your beverage, do that! The only difference is you have a different drink in your hand! Try having that cup of hot tea, glass of iced tea, kombucha, or sparkling water. Take a few min to stretch and relax, talk to your friends and family, watch your favorite TV show, etc. The key is to make sure you still continue to set aside the time to engage in these relaxing activities you enjoy.
