I'm very excited to have my 'career crush' on the show this week, Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness.
Sean's podcast and online events are a major hub for the best and brightest in natural & functional medicine. He's about to do it again with his upcoming event, The Digestion Sessions: The Second Opinion Series.
We'll get to hear from Sean about some of his favorite interview and take-aways as he sat down with 19 top experts in the field of digestive health.
To grab your free pass to the Digestions Sessions, just use this link.
Speaking of hubs, our digestive tract is the 'hub' of the body in so many ways. It effects our ability to think clearly, to have energy, to maintain correct body weight, and to have healthy hormones. To enjoy great health, it's important to understand and honor this important system.
Over the next two weeks on this podcast, we'll interview two of the experts from the Digestion Sessions, Hannah Crum and Dr. Shawn Soszka, ND, LAc, so stay tuned for that. Hannah will talk about fermented foods (so valuable to the gut) and Dr. Soszka will talk about the gut/mood connection.
Again, here's that link to the Digestion Sessions, which officialy starts in early November 2014, but has some nice video gifts now to get you psyched up.
Having a healthy digestive system ensures your weight-loss plan will be successful. To improve your digestion to lose weight, make sure to consume adequate fiber and fluids and increase your physical activity if possible.
Fiber -- Feel Light and Regular
Eat more fibrous foods to increase weight loss and prevent constipation. Fiber resists your digestive enzymes, meaning it is not broken down but stays intact as it passes through your digestive tract. As it travels, it forms a gel and absorbs some excess fat, cholesterol and sugar, which is passed through your stool. Only plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seed, beans and legumes provide fiber. Nonstarchy vegetables such as greens, tomatoes, broccoli and eggplant are good low-calorie options for weight loss because they contain only about 25 calories per 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked.
Many Nutrients Contribute to Metabolism
A healthy metabolism is critical for successful weight loss and digestion. Many high-fiber foods are more nutritious than their low-fiber alternatives; whole grains, example, offer more nutrients than refined white grains. High-fiber foods contain more vitamins and minerals important for your metabolism, including B vitamins. This family of vitamins is involved in many metabolic processes, such as the breakdown of food into energy.
Today's show is all about digestion - we're going to talk about the connection between good digestion and good health. I'll also share some easy steps you can take to improve your digestion.
During the show, I'll teach you about foods you should include, foods you should avoid and how to use food to actually heal your digestive tract.
I'm also going to share a few other tips that have more to do with the mind/gut connection. We're going to talk about how to improve your mental and emotional health so that your digestion can finally heal as well.
