Supercharge Your Gut Girth: Foods and Exercises to Trim Your Waistline. And Just A Thought 💭

June 06, 2024

Love your gut for weight loss

This June we're focusing on healthy, nutritionally sound weight management, especially around the gut region. Stable weight loss and management is one of the many benefits of a gut cleanse, gut detoxification and a gut health diet, aka A Loved Gut.

From Lee Holmes, clinical nutritionist, Supercharged Food: "As a nutritionist, I'm asked almost daily what foods and strategies can help trim down belly fat. While spot-reducing fat from any one area is a myth, adopting a healthy lifestyle focused on nutrient-dense foods and regular exercise will lead to overall fat loss - including that stubborn midsection.

The key is fuelling your body with supercharged, gut-friendly foods while incorporating exercises that strengthen your core muscles. Here are my top tips:

Eat More Fibre
Fibre is essential for good gut health and feelings of fullness. Aim for at least 25-30 grams per day from sources like vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Fibre feeds the beneficial gut bacteria that regulate metabolism, inflammation and appetite hormones implicated in belly fat.
Our Love Your Gut Protein and Fibre is a deliciously easy and gut-loving way to get the fibre you need.

Clean Your Gut

We can carry around 500g to 3kilos of accumulated waste, bad bacteria, mucous and plaque in our gut. It's like brushing your teeth - everyday, twice a day, give your gut a gentle 'brush'. Eating more fibre from nutritious foods as we mentioned above is a great way to go. 
To supercharge your gut clean try Love Your Gut diatomaceous earth or capsules are a super gentle way to remove the 'junk in your trunk'.

Get On The Protein Pro Team
Protein takes more energy to digest than carbs or fat, boosting your metabolism slightly. It also helps you feel fuller for longer on fewer calories. Lean proteins like eggs, fish, chicken, turkey, Greek yogurt and pulses (beans, lentils, peas) are great options.
Again, our Love Your Gut Protein and Fibre is a deliciously easy and gut-loving way to get the protein you need. 
Here's what Lee has to say about it.

Supercharge Your Hydration
Sometimes thirst can mask itself as hunger, leading to excess calorie intake. Drink water throughout the day and have a glass before meals to avoid overeating.
Our Fulvic Humic drops are one of the world's richest sources of super hydrating electrolytes. Drop a few drops in your daily water (or even alcoholic drinks).

Get Prebiotic Fibre Into You
Prebiotics feed the probiotics (healthy gut bacteria) that improve gut barrier function, nutrient absorption and fat metabolism. Good prebiotic sources include onions, garlic, asparagus, bananas and whole grains.
Here's where our Love Your Gut Synbiotic shines! Created by Lee, it's a unique blend of prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes and dietary fibre. Your gut's microbiome will love you for it!
Here's what Lee has to say about Synbiotic.

Find Fermented Friends
Fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha provide probiotics to populate your gut with good bacteria. A healthier gut environment makes it easier to lose weight.

Move More
While diet is key, exercise - especially strength training - is vital for losing belly fat. Abdominal exercises like planks, bicycle crunches and oblique twists strengthen your core muscles. High intensity interval training (HIIT) and cardio like walking, running or swimming also torch calories.

Destress Daily
Chronic stress drives cortisol production, which increases appetite and prompts belly fat storage. Make time for stress-relieving habits like meditation, yoga, deep breathing or your favourite relaxing activity.
Try this mindful meditation from Lee.

Be Patient
Losing belly fat is a process that takes time and consistency. Stick with a balanced, gut-friendly diet full of fibre, protein and pre/probiotics, coupled with regular exercise. With persistence, that slimmed waistline will be your reward!

The road to a flatter stomach starts with supercharging your gut health. Eat more of the right, gut-loving foods while working your core and staying active.

You've got this! 👊🏽
