Stuffed turkey, stuffed chickens, fried chicken, Deep-Fried Turkey, Macaroni and cheese, Candied yams, ribs, biscuits and gravy ALL THE CHEESE, ALL THE OILS, ALLL THE FATS! Thanksgiving dinners and the holiday season is the perfect recipe for gut health disasters. The terrible bloated feeling afterwards, the ITIS, and feelings of depression all point to an imbalanced and UNHAPPY gut.
No judgement here but, we really want to help you, so lets have a conversation about FOOD. Food is meant for nourishment, not binging. The good news is that you're not alone.30 million Americans struggle with an eating disorder the holidays- a time when stress and anxiety are at their peak.
Over 80% of your immune system is in your gut. An unbalanced gut filled with junk from Thanksgiving will disrupt your system. Many people end up sick right after thanksgiving eating and it is no surprise. Fix My Gut helps replenish beneficial bacteria to support digestive and immune health. Researchers and scientists suggest that a healthy gut flora play a role in both increasing metabolism and weight management.
Overeating and Bloating
Overeating is the most common cause of bloating, and gas can easily get trapped in your stomach from fatty foods, carbonated beverages, sweeteners, and dairy. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving culture is one that is filled with buffets and all the fried cheesy options in the world! This makes overeating not just a holiday tradition, but a common occurrence. By eating slowly, listening to your body, and stopping once you are satisfied (not stuffed), you can start to rise above the temptation to overeat and feel great this season.
Digestive issues are incredibly distracting and no one should be burdened with them when it comes to enjoying a little time off with your family.
If you experience BLOATING, GAS, MOOD SWINGS during this holiday period, your MICROBIOME (gut) may likely be out of balance, and you can fall prey to constant food cravings that feel impossible to resist. Your gut controls your brain and digestive system and it is essential to keep it in balanced and FIX MY GUT is the solution you've been looking for!
