Have you spent countless sums of money on supplements to tackle your leaky gut with disappointing results? Do you have major gut problems that you just can’t seem to conquer? Have you considered that your dysbiosis, poor motility and subpar digestion may be an artifact of some underlying problem that you can correct by modifying your lifestyle? Well then you’ll be interested in what I’m about to tell you.
I’m starting a Stop Leaky Gut Challenge exclusively for members of the Circadian Retraining Program on January 1st. The Challenge will last 12 weeks and focus on lifestyle habits to stop and prevent leaky gut. Rather than focus on stacking your cabinets full of supplements, we’ll focus on optimizing your behavior to train your gut to digest and absorb your food better and allow the supplements you are taking to synergize with your physiology to stop and avoid leaky gut.
You may have noticed some private blogs that I’ve posted over the last couple of weeks on the topic. These blogs have covered things such as meal timing and frequency, fasting, physical activity, meal composition, and much more. I’ve turned the information from these blogs in to a scorecard of sorts and we’re going to try to rack up the points to stop leaky gut for good.
In addition to a scorecard, I’ve also developed a case report form. What is that you may ask? It’s a way to monitor how you’re progressing and will allow us to tweak the program to develop a personalized approach for each person in the program. You see, we aren’t competing against each other, we’re competing against ourselves to help drive optimal gut health.
How do you know if the challenge is right for you?
First and foremost you have to be onboard with changing the way you eat, the way you go about your day, and how you view gut health as a whole. You have a lot more control over your gut, you just need the tools and tricks to get it working for you rather than against you. So many people get stuck in the sick gut cycle where their digestion improves for a while only to sink back in to dysfunction. Without fundamentally changing your behavior, this is about the best you can hope for. But why settle for this when you can avoid it?
Second, you have to be willing to actively participate in your gut health. I have to admit, one of the more difficult aspects of optimizing gut health is that you need to understand that behavior change is absolutely necessary. There are a number of things that you’re doing on an everyday basis that reinforce poor gut health, they certainly did for me and every person I’ve worked with.
Finally, you have to understand that, for many of you, this is just a start. Maybe you started a restrictive diet and have now whittled your way down to a handful of foods that you tolerate. This is one of the major drawbacks of beginning the restrictive dieting cycle and one of the reasons restrictive diets should only be used for a short period of time for symptom management. You need to bring nutrition back in to your life, but it’s difficult to know when you should do this.
This is why I’ve made this exclusive to the Circadian Retraining Program, so that I can help guide you after the challenge is over. What good is a 12 week challenge on gut health if it doesn’t move your gut health forward? I want you to end this challenge with a completely different gut health paradigm.
Is there anything I need for the challenge?
Aside from the willingness to change your lifestyle and the ability to walk, not really. I do highly recommend an activity tracker of some sort that measures heart rate so you can track your activity, sleep, energy expenditure, and cardiorespiratory fitness. Most people in the group use the Fitbit Charge 2 HR or an Oura Ring. But any of the Fitbit devices that measure heart rate will work. You also may want to grab the HRV4Training app for your phone which measures heart rate variability if you don’t go for the Oura Ring.
How do I sign up?
Signing up is simple, you just need to purchase the Circadian Retraining Program and say you’re in. We already have quite a few people signed up for the Challenge. I timed this program for January 1st to take advantage of most people’s motivation to make a change the first of the year. And the best part is if you have weight to lose you will definitely lose it on this program.
You can learn about the program and sign up here…
If you’d rather split the payment up, send me an email here and we can set something up:
It’s probably better to sign up sooner rather than later so you can dig in to the program modules and take advantage of the 10 hours of content before we start on January 1st. There are modules covering a range of topics from how you address gut health if you have adrenals problems to how you can safely incorporate coffee if it causes loose stools for you. That one was a big one for me because I love me some coffee but it can cause loose stools if you add it in willy nilly.
So what are you waiting for? Join today and gain the knowledge and tools you need to stop leaky gut for good. The challenge is only 6 weeks away.
