How do I lose weight during Clean Gut?
The 411 on weight loss
Weight loss can occur on the program, but it isn’t the focus. How and when weight loss occurs varies for each person. Let’s take a step back and look at the bigger picture of why we might have excess weight in the first place. It’s often a result of consuming foods that do not work for the body, resulting in poor digestion and toxic overload. Clean Gut helps the body re-balance itself and helps repair the damage done by years of poor habits. When you lose weight without doing this important foundational work, the weight loss typically doesn’t last. It also doesn’t bring about the increased vitality that in the end is what we really want.
Even if you haven’t seen much weight loss yet, hang in there. You’re doing the foundational work, and that’s what matters most. Daily bowel movements, sticking with the Gut Diet, and avoiding emotional snacking will encourage your body to find that sweet spot, totally unique to you.
One of the best things you can do for weight loss is hide the scale until the end. Don’t stress yourself out by stepping on the scale every day. Just remember, how you feel is a more accurate measure of success. Instead of numbers on the scale, focus on your energy level, sleep patterns, digestion, elimination, mood, and clarity of thought.
