Build a healthy lifestyle with Hack Your Gut
A healthy lifestyle is the key to a happy and healthy life. But what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and how do you get there from where you are? Well, that’s our goal at Hack Your Gut, to get you there!
Here at Hack Your Gut, we have a simple motto: Live Healthy, Be Happy. Our purpose is to help people cultivate both health and happiness by living a lifestyle that creates both. If you want access to the most cutting edge information on implementing lifestyle that promotes gut health, overall health, and longevity, check out our blog.
The power of a healthy lifestyle cannot be overstated when it comes to health and happiness. Look no further than our blogs to learn why lifestyle is so important to health and the many ways lifestyle impacts the way your body works.
But what’s with the name? What relevance does gut health have to overall health? The crib notes version is that our gut is a critical interface between our internal systems and the environment. And since it interfaces with all major organs and tissues in the body, poor gut health affects all aspects of our health.
If you’re looking for more information on this, we started a podcast to help you understand how gut health impacts overall health. We recommend you start on episode 1 and work your way through. But, you can also check out episode 9 which covers how gut health impacts healthy aging.

There are many ways to manipulate these factors to build a healthy lifestyle that works for you. For example, many different diets and types of exercise are compatible with a healthy lifestyle. And I’ve tried most of them, finally settling on a vegetable heavy omnivorous diet with meal timing and scheduling that fits my lifestyle. But I didn’t get there by flying blindly.
What’s most important is to find things that work for you on an individual basis and measure how you respond. We regularly use the Fitbit Charge and HRV4Training to measure progress. Other options include the Oura Ring and Whoop bracelet.
