BERRY SMOOTHIE, weight loss, healthy stomach and heart benefits

**BERRY WONDERFUL**


HELLO to a healthy heart and digestive system. 

Strawberries, raspberries, goji berries, blueberries, acai berries, mulberries are the most well known berries and the most consumed. Maybe you are not aware of the large berry family, which also contain watermelon, coconut, banana, tomatoes and more. The berry family together promotes a healthy heart and a happy stomach. It has great benefits to our health (if you are not allergic). 

Firstly according to Nancy Copperman (a dietitian and the director of public health at the Community Health in New York), berries have high levels of phytochemicals which are natural nutrients that help protect cells from damage. This is great, your white and red blood cells are the main gears that keep your whole body system going. They basically are best friends, if one is down, the whole system is down.

Also berries are delicious and easily accessible weight loss pill sfor many that want to loose weight. The reason for the weight loss effects is due to the high fibre content in berries and also gives a sense of fullness. This corresponds to a well known weight loss diet called the ACAI Diet. This diet plan consists of the berry family. It is basically a detox diet, which  fights fatigue, boosts energy, flushes out excess pounds, and eliminates toxins. These are all the properties of berries. 

Furthermore berries are full of antioxidants called anthocyanins, which helps oxidation, preventing oxidative stress (lack of oxygen to the brain), improving your focus and memory. Raspberries contain ellagic acid, which inhibits blood flow and has anti-cancer properties. All berries are a healthy detox. Overall for the stomach it helps balance good bacteria.

NO MORE BLOATING, GAS, IBS or DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS !

NO MORE:

970cb998995316481a62a22003da3722

FINALLY, the root solution for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), constant bloating, gas, digestive problems and constipation (symptoms of intolerances and more).

I know so many people including myself who are intolerant to most foods and try to eliminate them to avoid digestive problems. That’s great, but it’s not just the foods you are intolerant to. Its about the bad bacteria in your stomach caused a large amount of sugar and carbohydrate servings. You may think everything you are eating is healthy, but if you are having room much of the same thing you will have these symptoms. It’s all about your gut, learn to balance the good bacteria in your gut. 

Everything starts and ends with your gut.

Your diet is everything, I’m not promoting a fancy diet like the 100000s of diets you come across. This is to help you cleanse to have good balanced bacteria in your stomach. Also you may have visited a dietitians that have set out a meal plan or a doctor that prescribe medication for your IBS or whatever else. This is awesome, more money down the drain and you are still suffering. I have been to them all and I have experimented on so anything. I have tried basically everything on the market. The catch is, don’t treat the symptoms, treat the cause and that is your DIET (lifestyle eating choices).

The solution to a happy stomach and no more of this digestive nonsense is the FODMAP diet. Don’t think of it as a diet think of it as a cleans or an eating phase so that you can go back to normal. It’s just an elimination of certain foods to help your intestines go back to having balanced bacteria in your gut.

Bloating, gas, constipation, IBS, diarrhea and others is due to the bacteria in your gut and intestines. The bloating, gas and diarrhea comes from your small intestine, which is due to consuming too much sugars found in foods and large amount of carbohydrates (causing a large amount of bad bacteria in your stomach) or eating something you are intolerant too. The constipation and cramps happen in your big intestine, where some of the food that already caused problems in your small intestine went into your large intestine, enhancing the problem.

Solution for life !

Now you may not have heard of probiotics and prebiotic’s. This cleanses your gut, and as previously mentioned,

YOUR GUT IS EVERYTHING !

Probiotics balances the bacteria in your stomach, which is great and needed, but you ALSO need to have a balanced  diet (healthy lifestyle) to maintain the good bacteria in your intestines. A LOW FODMAP diet is basically eliminating foods that is HIGH in FODMAP, which causes too much bad bacteria. FODMAP is commonly known as carbohydrates…This is not a permanent diet it’s just for your stomach to go back to “normal”, having balanced healthy bacteria and not too much bad bacteria.

FODMAP (What does it stand for):

Fructose:
A simple sugar found in many fruits, vegetables and added sugars.

Lactose: A carbohydrate found in dairy products like milk.

Fructans: Found in many foods, including gluten grains like wheat, spelt, rye and barley.

Galactans: Found in large amounts in legumes.

Polyols: Sugar alcohols like xylitol, sorbitol, maltitol and mannitol. They are found in some fruits and vegetables, and often used as sweeteners.

So now that you know what it is, you need to learn how to just eliminate foods that are high in FODMAP for a while then reintroduce them slowly and find out what truly is the weapon of stomach destruction.

The foods that are HIGH in FODMAP are:

Fruits: Apples, applesauce, apricots, blackberries, boysenberries, cherries, canned fruit, dates, figs, pears, peaches, watermelon.

Sweeteners: Fructose, honey, high fructose corn syrup, xylitol, mannitol, maltitol, sorbitol.

Dairy products: Milk (from cows, goats and sheep), ice cream, most yogurts, sour cream, soft and fresh cheeses (cottage, ricotta, etc) and whey protein supplements.

Vegetables: Artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, beetroot, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic, fennel, leaks, mushrooms, okra, onions, peas, shallots.

Legumes: Beans, chickpeas, lentils, red kidney beans, baked beans, soybeans.

Wheat: Bread, pasta, most breakfast cereals, tortillas, waffles, pancakes, crackers, biscuits.

Other Grains: Barley and rye.

Beverages: Beer, fortified wines, soft drinks with high fructose corn syrup, milk, soy milk, concentrated fruit juices.

This is suitable for all vegans and vegetarians♥️
So no matter what your lifestyle eating choice is, if you are lactose I am sure you are sorted with your lacto-free milks or substitutes like almond, soy, oat, rice and other milks, perhaps you are taking lactase tables before you consume dairy, which helps with digestion. However with A LOW FODMAP you need to avoid all dairy to align your stomach (gut). If FODMAP is the cause of your problems then you’ll feel relief IMMEDIATELY.

People who have problems with FODMAP foods end up feeding the wrong bacteria and build so much bad bacteria. Try not having these foods for about a week and a half. This is just to experiment with your body. Its recommended by MANY dietitians. So once you have eliminated these try introduce the food one at a time and figure out what is too harsh on your stomach. When you start introducing the foods and you feel that something its too heavy and destructive you may want to avoid it permanently.

Read up more about the FODMAP diet. Some doctors and dietitians don’t know your body like you do. So have fun, it’s a project, go for blood tests, figure out what you can and can’t eat. Try the LOW FODMAP…Guarantee you it will work. And we all want to have a happy stomach. I know this from experiments, my research and professional advice.
