Ever heard of leaky gut?

According to Harvard Health, Inside our bellies, we have an extensive intestinal lining covering more than 4,000 square feet of surface area. When working properly, it forms a tight barrier that controls what gets absorbed into the bloodstream.

 

An unhealthy gut lining may have large cracks or holes, allowing partially digested food, toxins, and bugs to penetrate the tissues beneath it. This may trigger inflammation and changes in the gut flora (normal bacteria) that could lead to problems within the digestive tract and beyond

Next week, we will talk more about how to prevent it and treatment for it.

EXERCISE

Health benefits of walking

Research has shown that walking at a brisk pace at least 150 minutes a week can help you: 

  • Think better, feel better and sleep better. 

  • Reduce your risk of serious diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and several types of cancer. 

  • Improve your blood pressure, blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels.

  • Increase your energy and stamina.

  • Improve your mental and emotional well-being and reduce your risk of depression.

  • Boost bone strength and reduce your risk of osteoporosis.

  • Prevent weight gain.

 

If 150 minutes sounds like a lot, remember that even short activity sessions can be added upover the week to reach this goal. And it’s easy to fit in a few minutes of walking several times a day. This could be 10 minutes of brisk walking after breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Healthy lifestyle tip

Find healthy alternatives- they are out there!

You will soon realize that there is a replacement for everything. What this means for you is that you can actually enjoy the foods you eat. Plus, you can still incorporate some of your favorite foods, just in a healthier way. We all have foods that we just absolutely love, so be intentional about finding healthier versions of your favorite foods.

 

As I mentioned before, this is a very important step because it keeps you excited, motivated, and gives you momentum to keep going. If you’re anything like me, you might be big on sweets. If so, take the time to find healthier alternatives to your favorite sweets. 

You can also make your own versions at home to ensure the ingredients are up to your standards.
