There are a few universally accepted truths that we must all cling to in the never-ending debate over what to eat and what not to eat. Though they are a rare few, certain foods are irrefutably proven to be good for weight loss and your health in general.
With summer finally here, you may be eager to frolic in the waves, soak up some rays, and make the most of that long-awaited vacation. But in trying to be your healthiest, best self for summer —body and soul — you might be breaking out into a sweat at the thought of grueling workouts, tasteless and restrictive diets, and other punishments.
I always say that these are the three things that could change your life: drink more water, get enough fiber and take Jetson. I was really intentional about focusing on the basics. I was changing my diet, I was moving more, I was focusing on my mental health, and Jetson supported me through all of that. It took my gut issues off the table.
Here’s the thing: keeping your gut microbiome balanced takes consistent effort. Achieving optimal gut health doesn’t come from 30 days of probiotic supplements and kombucha. Just like us, our gut microbiome is continually evolving – which means it needs to be continually exposed to beneficial bacteria (so the bad bacteria never becomes too powerful).
We face an endless barrage of studies telling us not to eat this and not to drink that if we’re trying to lose weight. And there’s no shortage of self-proclaimed “experts” saying that dieters should avoid fruit altogether if they want to reduce the number on the scale. Science doesn’t bear that out. Fruit absolutely can be a staple of your diet without compromising your weight loss goals. What’s most important for weight loss is your gut health, and foods like fruit can help you maintain a healthy gut.
The American approach to weight loss starts, for most, with calorie counting. Even if you do subscribe to the “Calories In, Calories Out” school of weight loss (many don’t, by the way), the fact is this:
Need to drop a few pounds? As with any goal, it’s essential to head into the project with a strategy in hand. To increase the probability of success, figure out how to respond to any possible roadblocks and look for opportunities to make the process easier. And plan some rewards for yourself!
Here at Jetson, we always preach about the gut’s effect on overall health. That’s why we invented the concept of a rotating probiotic routine (also known as probiotics with added benefits) because of how important it is to maintain this consistent diversity in your gut.
If you know how to take care of your gut, it can go from being a target to a tool. Instead of trying to make our guts shrink and wither away, we can instead learn how to turn them into high-powered and downright beautiful metabolism-boosting, health-optimizing machines.
