Embarking on a journey to conquer the battle of the bulge entails addressing various elements, from visceral fat to digestion and toxin elimination. The pivotal role of our guts in these processes makes them the epicentre for nutrient collection and distribution. Many experts emphasise the profound impact of a sound and harmonious gut on our courage, boldness, independence, and overall zest for uninhibited living. For a transformative seven-day journey to improved gut health, consider the following tips:

1. Probiotic-rich Foods: Incorporate yoghurt, vegetable pickles, green olives fermented in brine, kombucha, and other fermented foods to replenish and maintain beneficial bacteria in your gut.

2. Prebiotic-packed Foods: Boost good bacteria growth by consuming prebiotics found in soaked cooked rice, soaked poha, garlic, onions, bananas, asparagus, and whole grains.

4. Hydration: Ensure proper hydration by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to support overall health, including digestive function.

5. Avoid Processed Foods: Minimize processed and packaged foods containing additives, colourings, and preservatives that can adversely impact gut health. Choose whole, natural, regional, and seasonal locally available foods.

6. Fiber-rich Foods: Support beneficial bacteria growth by incorporating fibre-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains into your diet.

7. Mindful Eating: Practice mindful eating by paying attention to hunger and fullness cues. Chew well, eat slowly, and savour your food to improve digestion.
