- Reduce your sugar intake, little by little.
- Add veggies to breakfast time.
- Save booze for the weekend.
- Practice mindful eating.
- Incorporate more probiotics and prebiotics into your diet.
Prebiotics are natural, non-digestible food components that are linked to promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut. The best choices are: bananas, onions, garlic, leeks, asparagus, artichokes, soybeans, and whole-wheat breads Probiotics are active cultures that help change or repopulate intestinal bacteria to balance gut flora. Consuming probiotics may boost immunity and improve overall GI health and the best sources are yogurts, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, and tempeh. Having a combination of prebiotics and probiotics in our diets can be a very powerful step to improving our overall health.
- Finally get into meal prep – it’s a game changer.
- Eat two pieces of fruit a day.
- Eat out less often.
- Stock your pantry with fewer sweets (which is not the same as cutting out sweets for good).
