The first of the year is a BIG date for many people as it seems like the best option to start a new goal.
But for us, we are starting when we are ready. Once we have all the information sorted. Once we have our goals lined up. Then we will take action.
There is no need to rush changes, especially when you want to see results. Being prepared is key. Having a plan is needed. Believing you can do it is CRUCIAL!
We have never done a “heal your gut” program before, as we mentioned in our video we have done other things to improve our health. We are feeling pretty comfortable with the new changes we are about to do. PLEASE note this is for our journey to heal our gut! This will not work for everyone as we all have different needs and goals. But if you suffer from the same issues we do, then you might benefit from some of these changes too.
Learn. Adapt. Adjust to meet your lifestyle! And remember we are not saying this is the only way to heal. This is just what we are doing based upon the research we have done.
These next two weeks our diet will be different as we initially planned as Michelle will be traveling and working long days with Raw Threads, so we are adjusting our health and fitness goals accordingly. Please take note this is not a permanent thing for us, just something we are doing to heal our gut.
We are going to use the blog as our journal. We will also be sharing our eats and workouts on facebook, twitter and instagram. So make sure you follow us to keep up!
We got a new juicer to help us during this healing time! Plus we miss juicing. And sounds like many of you are ready to juice too!
Healing The Gut Plan:
Remember this our plan to heal our gut. Consult your doctor before beginning any program. Adjust to your own body and needs. We have done our own research and have come to these steps to help us in our journey to heal our stomach issues. Please do your own research before starting anything new. We are not really sure how long we plan to do this program.
Goal to do for a typical day:
Fermented Cod liver oil/butter blend – ½ tsp
L-glutamine powder in between meals – about 3 grams in morning and 3 grams in evening
Take -Digestive enzyme, quercetin, licorice before dinner.
Before bed magnesium pill and oil.
Things we plan to avoid:
no sugar (only stevia and fruit allowed)
reduce alcohol intake
Supplements to take:
fermented cod liver oil
try to get 4 tbsp coconut oil a day
½ -1 avocado a day
use spices and herbs at each meal
juice when possible
drink water throughout the day
Focus on eating fruits, vegetables, dark leafy greens, eggs, fish, grass-fed meats, clean carbs like sweet potato and winter squashes.
