The reason why you aren’t losing weight

And 7 ways to turn it around

Have you been on the weight loss journey full of peaks and pitfalls? Do you lose a chunk of weight one moment, then put it back on + more instantly? Well, let me tell you about this best kept secret that could be stopping you from achieving the weight loss you desire. Drum-roll… It’s the health and state of your GUT!

Research tells us that the gut, has a brain of it’s own, and a lot of people suffer from a multitude of gut sensitivities due to foods, additives and even stresses. You would know if this is you!

Your gut health also plays a roll in how well you absorb and disperse nutrients in your body and the efficiency of burning body fat. A huge determining factor of your body composition goals stem from the health of your gut. They key is to have a balance of the good and bad bacteria.

How do we do this?

The best way to optimize your gut health, is through… you guessed it,  your diet! Diet is KEY in optimization of your gut flora, flat abs and more energy to do what you love.

Here are 7 ways you can do this easily.


  1. Eat wholesome, organic, unprocessed and unrefined foods. Eliminate processed sugars and refined carbohydrates. Eat more nutrient dense foods such as veggies, organic meats, wild caught seafood, berries, coconut & olive oil and drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and help elimination
  2. Eat mostly raw, plant based foods. Good bacteria thrive on high fibre, plant foods. Aim for things like kale, cabbage, watercress and herbs.
  3. Eat good fats with every meal. Cook your food in coconut oil, use 100% cold pressed olive oil on your salads, eat avocados, activated nuts and eggs. You can easily add these to your raw salads for lunch and dinner
  4. Invest in some decent gut supplementation. My personal recommendation is GUTRIGHT. I started this formula along with the 10 day diet, and never felt better. I lost heaps of weight that I was unable to lose initially, gained a multitude of energy and have eliminated a lot of my food intolerances. Do also take a pro-biotic that will help elevate inflammation and assist your gut to accumulate good bacteria.
  5. Stop using vegetable and soy oil. These are filled with inflammatory omega 6, which causes a whole lot of problems for your gut bacteria. Always opt for coconut and olive oil.
  6. Change your snack habits. Try activated nuts and seeds as a snack during the day. Add coconut yoghurt (or a rich pro-biotic dairy yoghurt) in with the mix. Here you have a perfect snack that will increase the health of your gut.
  7. Try some fermented goodies. Things like miso, kombucha, and sauerkraut help to increase the health of your good bacteria. Try them through the day.
