Eating Whole: Learn How to Balance your Gut and Improve your Health with Food
Watch the latest webinar from The Break Room, our exclusive series for Premise Health members, to learn that achieving a healthy gut doesn’t mean strict restrictions and that balancing your diet is the key to a healthier you. You’ll hear from our own Amanda Curley, MS, RDN, LN as she discusses the impact of processed foods on gut health and how incorporating more whole, plant-based foods can bring positive changes to your health.
During “Eating Whole: How to balance your gut and improve your health with food,” Amanda highlights practical tips for incorporating more whole, plant-based foods into your diet without sacrificing taste and small lifestyle changes you can make that support your gut and overall wellbeing.
The Benefits of Eating Whole
The health of your gut impacts multiple aspects of your life, from physical comfort and energy levels to mental health. That’s why eating more whole, plant-based foods is essential to improving your overall wellbeing. Excessive intake of red meats, high-fat dairy, added sugar, and highly processed foods may cause an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in your gut. This imbalance can create gastrointestinal issues like acid reflux, bloating, gas, cramps, and constipation, plus impact mental health by increasing symptoms of anxiety and depression.
But you don’t have to eliminate all the foods you love to have a healthy gut. It is suggested that 50-75% of your daily intake comes from plant-based sources like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. By focusing on where you can add those foods into your diet, you’ll be getting more essential nutrients, plus fiber, prebiotics, and probiotics that promote a healthy gut environment and improve your overall health.
