    processed junk foodI borrowed (stole actually!) this great leaky gut diet tip from a great fitness expert that, like me, understands the importance of the foods that you eat to your health. You probably don’t stop to the think about the psychological practices that so many of the processed food companies use to “convince” you to buy their unhealthy products.

    Before I go any further, I’ll tell you this great leaky gut diet tip.

    If a food product has to use its packaging or other advertising to sell you then that alone should be a clue that you should not eat it!

    Think about it… When is the last time you saw a marketing campaign or television commercial for apples? When you buy fresh meat at the store does it come in a box or does it have a bunch of bright colors and smiley faces all over it? When was the last time you had to read the print on a package of strawberries before deciding whether or not they are healthy?

    It’s all about food psychology.

    Your brain is pre-wired to know what foods are good for you and what you need. That is why when you see an apple by itself you eat it without question. It doesn’t need fancy advertising to sell you. All you need to see is that it looks and tastes like an apple. It is all natural instinct.

    processed foodThese other processed foods that come in all kinds of boxes and packages on the other hand have to spend millions of dollars in advertising and marketing to bypass your natural instinct and reprogram your brain to convince you to eat their processed foods. They play off the fact that your brain is programmed to interpret bright colors (naturally found in fruits & vegetables) as foods. So they mimic these colors and make them even brighter on their packaging to further confuse your instinct. Without the television commercials and bright colors you would probably walk right by them because your brain does not naturally interpret a cardboard box or plastic packaging as food.

    So the next time you are strolling through the grocery store, keep this great leaky gut diet tip in the back of your mind. If the box jumps out at you then just keep walking until you are instinctually drawn to some natural and whole foods. I’d bet you would start seeing some improvement in your leaky gut and chronic symptoms.

  • Today is Day 56 on the Leaky Gut Diet. I am so much better and feel more confident to leave the house and go out in public. For five years I have lived in fear of embarrassment from chronic diarrhea. Clean eating is healing me and, hopefully, rebuilding good bacteria. I have told so many people about this diet and directed them to your website. It is a shame that the medical profession has not been trained in diet, especially gastroenterologists. They just want to do the colonoscopy and tell you that all is great. Well, it is not great when you are having 20 to 30 bouts of diarrhea a day. I do not care what the colonoscopy showed.

    Thank you, Karen, for all you do and provide to get up back on track to a healthy system that we were always intended to have. Processed and fast foods, as well as GMOs and other additives are not providing the nutrition our bodies require and they are making us fat and shortening what should be healthy, productive, well functioning lives.
