Have you ever eaten something and felt WAY more bloated than you feel like you should? Maybe even experienced cramping and indigestion after eating? Those are some pretty solid signs that you may be experiencing food sensitivities or intolerances! And The 4 Week Gut Protocol is ready to help you figure out exactly what those problem foods are!
I’m beyond excited for this new program for many reasons…
The first is because of my own personal experience. After I had my girl’s I found myself becoming sensitive to dairy and certain processed foods. Once I realized this and removed them from my diet I started to feel SO much better! I felt less bloated and had so much more energy!
The second reason I’m so excited is that it seems like everyone that I talk to has some type of gut issue symptoms! And now Beachbody finally has a program to help us ALL figure out our “trigger foods” no matter how severe our symptoms.
Before I dive into more about the program, let’s first talk about more of the symptoms you might be experiencing…
Signs your gut health may need attention:
Food sensitivities can reveal themselves in a variety of ways — some obvious, like bloating and cramping immediately after eating, but others are less obvious. So, let’s dive in…
- Stomach pains after eating
- Unexplained low-energy
- Unexplained weight loss
- Weight gain despite eating healthy and working out
- Skin rashes or acne breakouts
Of course, there could be a variety of reasons you’re experiencing these symptoms. But did you know that over 70% of Americans have undiagnosed food sensitivities? So starting with figuring out whether you have any food sensitivities could help alleviate some of your issues without any medical intervention!
And you know I’m a huge believer in healing your body NATURALLY from the inside out and the food you eat is a huge key in that!
Your gut does more than just digest food — it’s often referred to as your 2nd brain!
Your gut actually plays a much larger role in your life than you may have ever realized! In fact, 90% of your serotonin receptors (that thing helps make you feel HAPPY) are actually in your gut. Crazy right? It’s been shown that improved gut health can actually help ease feelings of depression and anxiety!
Everything starts with what you eat, which is why it’s so important to know which foods your body likes and doesn’t like. Just because a food is seen as “healthy” doesn’t mean it’s healthy for YOU!
What is The 4 Week Gut Protocol?
The 4 Week Gut Protocol is a comprehensive nutrition program designed to help identify and eliminate “trigger” foods from your diet — those foods that your body simply doesn’t tolerate well.
The concept of the program isn’t new, the elimination diet has been around for a long time, BUT as someone who considered trying one in the past, I can tell you they are NOT easy to follow. The idea sounds simple: eliminate common trigger foods, allow your body a chance to get these foods out of your system, and then slowly reintroducing each food group to see how your body reacts. But it can quickly become confusing without a guide to help you! So The 4 Week Gut Protocol is here to help make the whole process simple!
You’ll not only learn how to eat healthy but how to eat healthy for YOUR body!
This program focuses on the 4 Rs.
What are the 4 Rs of the Gut Protocol?
To start the program you’ll start to REMOVE all of the foods from your diet that tend to cause gut health problems for many people.
In order to sustain your journey, you’ll then REPLACE these foods with other types of food and/or optional gut health supplements that work to REPLENISH the good bacteria in your gut.
And while your nutrition journey you’ll also REBALANCE your body and mind by following the accompanying in-impact workout program called 4 Weeks for Every Body — the workouts are completely optional but highly recommended and less than 30 minutes/day!
