Hey EF Fam,
Here is a great newsletter from Viome that I think you will get a lot out of.
“If you’re frustrated with…
- Losing weight
- Keeping weight off
- Conflicting diet advice
- Having food and sugar cravings
- Starving yourself…
It’s time for your gut check! Universal diets are obsolete. We know that only through personalized nutrition can we learn what to eat to reach our health goals.
In our new blog, we dive into the science of the gut microbiome, explaining exactly why it can be difficult to lose and keep weight off. Check out How an Unhealthy Gut Microbiome Can Make You Fat. Let’s be honest. Watching your skinny friend down of pint of ice cream while you practically starve yourself isn’t just frustrating, it’s downright criminal.
It’s not fair that some people can seemingly eat whatever they want, while others feel like they have to live off of bland salads to lose weight.
We chalk it up to a “faster metabolism,” but what does that even mean? That some of us got lucky while others got dealt a bad hand? By the way, most people don’t know that a faster metabolism is not necessarily better since it can create a lot of oxidative stress.
We are calling on this.
Your gut microbiome helps you digest food, runs your metabolism, and regulates energy. And how well everything runs depends on what the microbes are doing in your gut.
Depending on your gut microbiome, you might do better with more protein, fat, or carbohydrates. You might need less spinach and more butter. Who knows, as we’re finding out, maybe carbs aren’t as bad as you once thought…
There was even one study that found ice cream was actually healthier than white rice for some people – depending on which microbes were active in their gut!
The point is this:
There is no one diet that’s perfect for everyone, or even one diet that’s perfect for everyone throughout their whole life, but there IS a better way.
How do you find out what’s happening inside your gut and keep those pounds off you? This is where Viome comes in. It analyzes your gut and tells you what foods you should be eating and what foods you need to be minimizing and avoiding to balance your gut, reduce inflammation and lose weight.
What our customers are saying
“When my sister recommended Viome, I was skeptical. I can honestly say that Viome has delivered the answers that no doctor has been able to give me. Within a few weeks of following Viome’s food and supplement recommendations, I lost 10 pounds, my anxiety decreased, and I saw a huge increase in energy.” – Elle, Viome Customer
“I got the results back a month ago and I have noticed a big difference in how I feel. I used to overeat because I thought I was hungry, but it turns out that some of the food I was eating was upsetting my stomach and making me feel hungry when I wasn’t.” – Travis, Viome Customer
