Welcome back to the Zen(ish) Mommy Podcast! Today, we are talking about gut health with the CEO of Health Life Yeah, Karin Banghart. Our guest is passionate about educating listeners on how to heal your gut and lose weight after having gone through a bout of colon cancer in 2020. We will touch on the hidden ingredients in commercially produced foods and unpack the importance of making necessary changes.
Listeners will learn what you can do to lose weight and change your life over a period of twelve weeks. Hear why it’s so important to listen to your own body’s cues and find out what it looks like to bring your mindfulness practice into your relationship with food.
“A healthy gut is important because it runs the show.”
Tune in to hear what the vagus nerve does and how it plays a key role in gut health. Karin explains what the Standard American Diet consists of and why it’s harmful. Followed up by the signs and symptoms of an unhealthy gut.
We all know that eating your fruits and vegetables is healthy, but today we’re going to talk about the harmful hidden ingredients & how to avoid them. Everyone’s story is a little different on where they got started on cleaning out harmful ingredients, but there is almost always a common denominator. For Karin, she cut out gluten and that was the game changer in her gut health. In my home, we cut out all food dye. Eliminating all processed foods is the most effective way to keep your ingredients clean and lose weight.
“If you look at a label and you can’t read it, you can’t pronounce it, you don’t know what the heck it is, your body doesn’t know either!”
