We all know that currently, overeating and binge eating, is common. This excessive eating can often lead to feelings of guilt or unhappiness, many people are already looking to the New Year to put a strict weight loss diet in place. But could your efforts be futile if you do not take time to understand your body and how it reacts to different foods?
When you look down and see your stomach protrude from your waist band, your first reaction may be to consider implementing a restrictive diet protocol. From my experience, working one to one with hundreds of Indian clients, this is not the ideal strategy to implement! I work with my clients to understand the feeling of being bloated and we learn to track where this issue stems from. I often see clients lose weight and reduce the size of their waist quickly in the first few weeks of working with me, without a huge reduction in food intake because of this strategy. Think of it like this:
If you were to see water dripping from your ceiling, you wouldn’t just patch it up and carry on like normal. You would look to see where this water is flowing from and find the root cause.
Do these top 5 common causes of bloating and digestive distress relate to you?
Reducing the bloated feeling and eliminating digestive distress does not require overly restrictive dietary approaches. There are a few successful strategies I apply everyday with my Indian clients, that enable them to lose weight, feel better and improve their health in the process! Try these steps today.
✅ Support digestion, especially if you are eating a lot more than normal! Incorporate Reflex Nutrition Digezyme that help breakdown proteins, fats and carbs.
✅ Hydrate!!! The meals and snacks you are consuming at this time of the year are likely to be high in sodium. Drink plenty of water through the day, track you water intake using a large 2l bottle!
✅ Slow down the pace you eat at and enjoy your meal! Chewing is the first stage of digestion, it is something we teach our children from an early age and now it is something we need to implement ourselves!
✅ Implement a brief fasting window to allow your body time to reduce inflammation, reduce blood sugar levels and reduce heart disease risk factors.
✅ Try the ‘Juggy Juice’ a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar, Udos Choice Beyond Greens and Reflex Nutrition Glutamine first thing in the morning, this will aid in digestion and improve gut health!
