Will Your Gut Ever Forgive You?
Are you looking forward to the holiday season? Although Halloween’s celebration of sugary treats has come and gone, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, and New Year’s are on the temptation horizon. Santa’s glamorous sleigh ride feeds a culture which offers tantalizing edible gifts. Therefore, if seduced into holiday reckless abandon, be prepared for symptoms of gas, bloat, brain fog, and unwanted weight gain after the holidays.
Will Your Gut Still Love You After Your Holiday Affair?
The peer pressure of family functions, travel, shopping, and office parties have you feeling like the Pillsbury Dough Boy by New Year’s Eve. Therefore, my gift to you is a symptom-free season with the four techniques to holiday-proof your gut as listed below.
1. Complete Digestion by Enzyme Energy
Given the wild combinations of ingredients in holiday meals, Enzyme Energy is a potent and natural digestive aid for those who experience hydrochloric acid depletion. Gulping one capsule with each meal boosts energy, and protects you from a food hangover. My most successful clients never leave home without digestive enzymes. My Enzyme Energy contains just the right amount of hydrochloric acid to synthesize difficult proteins in your digestive tract.
Partially digested meals can feed the chemical reaction which produces fat. When ample enyzmes are present during digestion, this decreases fat storage in your body. In my experience, digestive enzymes are as effective in keeping you slim as regular exercise.
2. Deep Hydration with Electrolyte Energy
Proper hydration and adequate protein are the antidotes for sugar and carb cravings. Drink water with Electrolyte Energy and eat 100 grams of protein daily. A salmon serving that fits in the palm of your hand is about 30 grams of protein. Instead of eating three solid protein meals a day, I fortify my body with All Day Energy and Protein Power protein shakes. My gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free protein powders are sweetened with monk fruit—not stevia. Mixed only with water, my protein drinks taste delicious. I advise my clients to always take some protein powder with them when leaving home.
3. Say “No, Thank You!”
The holiday season is the most significant time to say “No, thank you!” to those who tempt you with traditional dishes and desserts. Your “no” is likely to be honored if you say, “I just discovered I have an allergy to gluten, sugar, or dairy,” for example. You want them to fall into your healthy eating practices, rather than you fall into their unconscious eating patterns. The best way to entice loved ones to hop on the healthy eating train is to lead by your actions. To start, I recommend bringing your own alternative sugar-free dessert to any occasion.
Most people want to look and feel good. When you say “no” to low-value food options, you are doing everyone a favor. Peer pressure happens to everyone. Plus, saying “no” to junk food is a good example to set for your children.
4. Clean Your Gut with the Happy Gut Holiday Gift Pack
Some people experience constipation from holiday travel and stress. If you are such a person, have some Happy Gut Cleanse on hand. This product is a terrific stocking stuffer for anyone you know who needs to be un-stuffed. It’s no fun to feel crummy for the holidays. Enzyme Energy and the Happy Gut Cleanse make thoughtful holiday gifts. Or, choose a Happy Gut Holiday Gift Pack and give the gift of a happy belly for The New Year.
I personally wish you a lovely and healthy holiday season. By the way, I am loving my new product, Performance Energy. For those needing a caffeine-free blast of joy and optimism, Performance Energy offers mental clarity and long-lasting natural energy. Who couldn’t use that this time of year?
