For a long time now, I’ve yearned to live a healthier lifestyle and finally get myself in shape. It’s been a constant struggle, to say the least. Every time I make progress with a new diet or even just watching what I eat without any sort of particular plan, it seems I find myself right back in the same old patterns and awful habits that helped put on the extra pounds in the first place. It’s all very cyclical and incredibly frustrating. It doesn’t help that there are so many plans out there vying for attention, hoping to get people on board with whatever they’re hocking. I’m glad I didn’t give up however, because after being fed up with my weight for the umpteenth time, I found the Lean Gut Diet.
There’s a lot of misinformation out there about dieting and the overall health of the body. Every source you go to seems to have their own version of what the truth is as well, making it incredibly difficult to figure out what exactly you should be doing. The diet program immediately threw out some information I’d never really seen elsewhere: the fact that bacteria in the body can play a part in your weight just as much as anything. Of course, everyone knows about bacteria to some extent, but it’s almost never focused on in this manner. From that alone, I was incredibly interested to go further down the rabbit hole and see where this was going.
As you can tell by the name, the Lean Gut Diet revolves around what’s going on in your gut at a biological and chemical level. There’s bacteria inside of everyone’s gut – both good and bad – and being able to skew the percentage towards the good’s favor plays a huge part in being able to successfully lose weight. You should strive to have 80 percent good and 20 percent bad. It seems odd that any percentage of bad would be okay, but that’s just the nature of this stuff. Bacteria will never be gotten rid of altogether.
Of course, this was a huge revelation. Knowledge and understanding are crucial to being able to change something about your health. After all, that’s where a lot of the trouble comes in for most people, simply not knowing what to do and where to turn. I’ve been there myself, grasping at straws, latching onto whatever new fad diet seemed to blow in my direction in hopes that it finally had all the answers. You hear a lot about what sort of food is good or bad on most of these diets, but nothing ever really laid it all out in simply described biological terms like the Lean Gut Diet.
When the bad bacteria takes up too much of the spotlight in your gut, it easily leads to weight gain because it messes your digestive system up. It even drains your energy and compromises your mood as well, and we all know both of those only lead to further bad decisions when it comes to dieting or managing to stay active. There’s no way you’d find me eating well on a bad day. Comfort food is a crutch that all of us lean on a bit too much. As you see, one thing leads to the other when it comes to bad bacteria in the gut, making it that much more difficult to overcome and actually lose the weight that it’s helping keep there.
After learning that, it was already crystal clear that I wanted to do whatever possible to get my percentage of good to bad gut bacteria in check. That desire was really kicked into high gear after learning how easily a skewed ratio can also lead to issues like cancer and diabetes as well. Frighteningly enough, the information that comes with the diet claims that over 90 percent of people have more bad bacteria than they need, and getting everything turned around can be incredibly difficult. (I must say that I appreciated the honesty there as well; a lot of diets prop themselves up as the miracle cure you need to drop pounds overnight, whereas this one actually lets you know you’re going to have to work hard.)
All of that riveting information comprised the first part of the diet guide, and the second part includes the information needed to help get you in check. I was surprised to know that it largely revolved around adding herbs and minerals to my diet, but the changes were small enough that I could go along with it without too much protest. The claim was that my body would soon adjust and become better suited towards burning fat and rejuvenating itself overall. There’s a rather bold statement about potentially helping you look younger after the diet is in place as well.
Some of it starts to sound a little too heavy on the promises, but from the first word it was clear that this is definitely not the same as those other fly by night operations that offer up little worth. The guide even included meal plans to help me keep a good balance of nutrients. It includes smoothie recipes as well, which were incredibly useful in getting down some of the foods and ingredients that aren’t quite as tasty as I’d hope.
In the end, what I love most about the Lean Gut Diet is that it bestows a ton of useful information to those that decide to put it into practice. You learn all about the inner workings of your body and how your food affects it, as well as what you get back as a result. The changes asked of me all seemed reasonable, and I’ve been able to stick to everything I’m learning through the diet without too much fuss. Fortunately, I was able to get in on the reduced price deal that brings the cost down to around $40. Considering everything I’ve learned and some honestly promising results, I consider the Lean Gut Diet to be one of the good ones. You should definitely check it out.
