How to love your gut

10 tips to improve your gut health

1. Be a grazer, not a guzzler

Break your daily food intake into smaller and more frequent meals and listen to your hunger cues to avoid jams in your system.

2. Fill up on more fibre

Whole grains, legumes, and fruit and vegetables help you feel fuller and promotes bowel regularity.

3. Go fish

Boost your intake of gut-friendly omega 3s with fatty fish .

4. Ease off on the grease

Fatty, fried food puts a lot of pressure on your digestive system and too much can lead to leaky gut.

5. Be pro(biotic)-active

Daily consumption of fermented dairy and making probiotics a part of your wellness plan contributes to the health of your gut flora.

6. Play chicken (and don’t have a cow)

Lean cuts of white meat (chicken, turkey and rabbit) are better digested than fatty cuts of red.

7. Stay hydrated

Stay hydrated by having enough fluid from water, nutritious beverages and fruits.

8. Take it (in) slow

What’s the rush? Chew your food well to help break it down before it gets to your belly.

9. Get some fresh air

Getting regular exercise gets your digestive system moving.

10. Get more sleep

Try to get as much sleep as you can, minimum 7 hours/night. Good sleep is part of a healthy lifestyle.
