Whether you think you have gut problems or not, listen up because more and more research on the gut tells us that most of the issues we all suffer from are relieved or reversed once we fix our gut health. You may not even know it, but your gut is probably troubled if you have any complaints about your health…and this includes your weight. 

The Paleo & Primal Diets focus on mimicking how our ancestors ate as closely as possible, using foods available now. Followers say it will help minimize your risk of chronic disease and lead to weight loss. What you Eat: Meat from animals raised the way nature intended (grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chicken) wild-caught fish, fresh vegetables & fruits, eggs, nuts, seeds, healthy oils like olive and avocado, and small amounts of raw honey and maple syrup. What You Don’t Eat: Processed foods. Grains, Legumes, vegetable seed oils and refined sugar. The true Paleo diet also outlaws dairy, although many followers disagree and do eat foods like grass-fed butter and Greek yogurt. Primal was created by Mark Sission in the Primal Blueprint, and it allows some more exceptions like dairy or legumes if they are tolerated.


IBS affects 1 in 5 Americans. Often the cause lies in short-chain carbohydrates, also called high FODMAP foods. FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols. The tricky thing about identifying high FODMAP foods is that they are found in a lot of different food groups...even fruits and vegetables. We highly suggest you work with a health coach or dietitian to follow this diet appropriately.
