The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 346: April 5th Sponsored by Just Thrive - Can you have a healthy gut if you don't eat paleo?

    • (0:00) Intro

      • Sarah LOVES to keep track of our episodes by simply adding a “1” to the last episode number! How awesome is that?!?
      • A big thank you to all our listeners last week, thank you for hanging in there with me and being supportive because I know I went a little deep
        • Not sure why sharing personal information gives such a fear of judgement

          • Realizing people’s opinion of you doesn’t matter
          • Are you happy with the choices in your life?
      • Super excited for our upcoming trip when the kids are out of school
        • Been finding some really eco-friendly and sustainable RV’s!
        • Will keep you update to date on all the fun things we are doing while on the road!
        • THE PODCASTS WILL STILL CONTINUE WEEKLY!
      • Excited to move forward with new freedom in the fall
      • We’ve developed a really interesting relationship with our listeners and followers who have been with us for years but at the same time we are regular people who have regular lives
        • Same challenges of rushing from one place to another, trying to find work-life balance
        • It’s unusual for us to still share our vulnerability and window into our real lives and it is scary when the internet can be a hostile place
        • But we love our listeners and readers who come back week after week and make being real a priority
      • Really brave for Stacy to show her vulnerabilities and it helps our readers and listeners become part of our community rather than our “fans” or “tribe”
        • We want to inspire and be inspired by those that are sharing and overcoming in their daily lives
      • Last week was reminder that we still struggle with the idea of being accepted and not judged but worked through it and it’s all good!

          • First probiotic shown to reduce leaky gut!

 

    • (14:12) Listener Question from Teressa

      • I've been eating flour, dairy, and sugar my whole life. I now take a probiotic and eat fermented foods when I can but my gut is still not good. I can feel it, smell it and see it in my bowels. They are mushy and not formed (sorry for the tmi!) what can I do to heal my gut? I'm not sure simply adopting the paleo approach will heal me...?

        • We know that digestion/gut health shows when you go to the bathroom. Shout out to Teressa for recognizing that something is a little off
        • Check out Bristol Tool Form Scale in Paleo Principle and The Paleo Approach
          • This is important because while you may think you are healthy you may still have all kinds of nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances
        • Taking a probiotic and eating fermented foods is a great place to start!
          • If you have an overgrowth of bad bacteria from years of not so great food choices, probiotics and fermented food will have a hard time fighting the bad bacteria on its own
        • Important to understand core of the problem and what you are trying to solve
        • Ultimately you have to give your gut bacteria the food it needs to feed healthy bacteria and starve the bad ones
          • Unfortunately, bad bacteria like delicious and refined foods
          • You have to figure out how to still eat the foods you love that doesn’t contribute to upset tummy
        • Teressa YOU GOT THIS!!!
          • Nothing bad can come from these changes of eating more veggies

 

    • (20:24) Sarah Shares Some Science Behind It All

      • 60% of composition of gut bacteria is determined my food we eat

        • Remaining 40% determined by everything else!

          • Sleep
          • Stress Management
          • Activity
          • Probiotic exposure
          • Medications/Vitamin D
          • Toxin/Pesticide exposure
        • Taking a probiotic alone helps but what we eat has a larger impact to correct and balance gut bacteria
      • Autoimmue Protocol is designed for those treating severe chronic autoimmue disease
        • Starts ridged and then becomes flexible because it’s designed to maximize healing

 

    • (23:53) Paleo Community Dogma

      • You don’t need to go to the super ridged models to treat issues like Teressa’s and everybody else eating a Western Diet

        • If you ate a big of rice you didn’t fall off the wagon!
      • We need to stop the rule based way of approaching diet when it comes to healthy habits
        • Do some reading, understand the why and understand the themes

          • Nutrient Density: Eating nutrient dense foods and getting all not needing to supplement because we get them from foods. Seafood is really really important
          • High Vegetable Content: Every science study says the more veggies we eat the better
          • Lifestyle choices: Sleep, activity, stress, etc
      • No scientific study that says everybody needs to be gluten free forever to be healthy
        • This doesn’t mean that gluten is a health promoting food

          • Most are devoid of nutrients, high in bad fats and simple carbs
        • For those that gluten is toxic to you shouldn’t include it
        • Fair amount of society could tolerate some gluten here and there is other aspects of healthy living were dialed in a little better
      • We need to take a step back from the “you’re not paleo if you eat this”
      • If lifelong health is the goal, we need to make our choices sustainable and something we can keep up with
        • Be realistic in goals and keep eye on the prize.

          • Stay dedicated and take baby steps if needed
      • Sometimes you have to take out foods in combination to feel relief
        • Sarah had to take out gluten AND dairy together and got MAGICAL RELIEF!!

 

    • (27:17) Be Successful

      • If lifelong health is the goal, we need to make our choices sustainable and something we can keep up with

        • Be realistic in goals and keep eye on the prize.

          • Stay dedicated and take baby steps if needed
      • Sometimes you must take out foods in combination to feel relief
        • Sarah had to take out gluten AND dairy together and got MAGICAL RELIEF!!
      • Give it time
        • You may have to take out something for 30-90 days until you feel relief because your body has built up such an amount of inflammation. Be patient
      • There’s no harm in giving something up
        • Yes, we smell the goodies in the mall, but we know it’s just not a good choice for your personal health
        • When you feel good who needs the other stuff?!?!
        • These foods are engineered to be addictive
      • Food manufactures have no incentive to make food healthy AND delicious
      • Manufactures are beginning to use healthier ingredients that are satisfying, delicious and not addicting
      • Find a buddy to work with, stay accountable and create a safe space to help you focus on your health
      • Find your WHY
        • Know you are doing this for yourself not anybody else
        • Yes, it may be tough, but YOU CAN DO THIS!
