Our digestion determines the health of each cell in our body. Strong efficient digestion equals great energy, glowing skin, deep sleep, and good mood. Bad digestion leads to low energy, breakouts, poor sleep, mood swings.
We are continuing our Happy Belly interview series with my favorite wellness experts, chefs, health coaches, and ayurveda experts.
I am so excited to share the first two interviews from the Happy Belly interview series where I will be bringing you the best wellness coaches, digestive health specialists, teachers, and chefs! You will learn all about having a flat and a happy belly that fills you with joy, energy, and balance.
I usually try to avoid a topic of weight loss on my blog because I full-heatedly believe that weight loss is a side effect of kind and intelligent choices that we make in relationship to one self. Once you are in full integrity with your values and your desires, weight will slide off of you because you won’t need hiding anymore. Your behaviors will support a healthy weight, not force it.
Many women come to work with me around their issues with food: emotional eating; binge eating that leads to fatigue, digestive problems, and weight gain; avoiding certain foods because they don’t trust themselves with it; fear of food or addiction to food.
Bingeing, overeating, eating too much bread and pasta, not exercising, drinking, smoking, engaging in self-hate rants… Whatever it is for you, once we identify the behavior we want to change, we aim to go from 0 to 100 in one day. From bingeing every night to never doing it again. From not exercising, to exercising for an hour 5 times a week. From not eating veggie to eating only veggies. From overeating to eating perfect portions all the time. You get the picture. We aim for a 180 turn right away. This approach while works for some sets many for a failure and disappointment.
You know all the theory when it comes to eating right. You know that you need to eat greens and cut down on sugar. You know that bread and chips are not healthy. You are fully aware that cookies are not particularly nutritious…
To begin, I would like to share something with you: I am not a perfect eater. I don’t always eat what’s best for my body and my digestion. I do overeat sometimes when stressed or bored. And I do love my sweets, even though they might be considered ‘healthy’ by general standards.
