[15:40] A Guide To Increasing Diversity In Your Gut
Food is a great way to increase diversity in your gut.
More diversity in our gut leads to more leanness, which can help improve our metabolism.
The first thing you can do is feed the bacteria in the gut by increasing more fibers. Green bananas are a great way to increase diversity.
Figure out a way to rotate some of the foods and fibers that you’re eating.
“Food is going to be the number one source of fuel for a greater diversity in our gut.” -Rachel Scheer
[23:45] The 8 Worst Foods You Can Eat For Gut Health
A lot of pathogenic bacteria thrive off of sugar in the diet.
Sugar also leads to obesity which will wreak havoc on our gut microbiome.
2. Vegetable oils
Replace them with probiotic foods for gut health.
They create massive inflammation throughout our entire body.
We can metabolize sugar, but we can’t metabolize these seed oils.
3. Medications (antibiotics, antacids, PPIs, and birth control)
Birth control can deplete the body of key micronutrients. It can wreak havoc in our gut microbiome not only because of depleting the nutrients, but it can cause an imbalance of bacteria.
Most people have too much stomach acid, and we overuse antacids.
Stress causes us to be in a catabolic state.
When our digestive system is not really working because we’re in a stress state, this can lead to a lot of bacterial overgrowth.
5. Unresolved trauma
People who’ve gone through trauma actually have a low vagal tone.
When we go through periods of stress, our gut is affected.
6. Sugar substitutes
Use monk fruit and stevia instead of other popular substitutes like sucralose. Here is where you’ll learn artificial sweeteners health risks.
7. Dairy and wheat
Most of us can’t really break down lactose.
Try to do an elimination diet by removing dairy.
8. Raw diets
Raw vegetables have a lot of insoluble fibers.
