Honestly, instead of trying to do everything perfectly, just listen to your body and eat to feel good. If you’ve chosen a certain diet and your still having issues, maybe it’s not the right diet for you or you might need to tweak a few things here and there.
What’s most important is that you eat fresh foods that are well-prepared to help your digestive system do it’s job properly. Also, try to not overeat, eat enough to feel good and to have enough energy to get you through your day. Try to have a period of at least 12 hours where you haven’t had any food. If you can and your body allows you to, go up to 14 or 16 hours of fasting. Drink a lot of quality filtered water, add herbal teas and bone broth as well. Ditch the caffeine.
If you’re really confused about it all, MaxGen Labs offers genetic testing that will point you in the right direction in terms of what diet is best for you. Mine happens to be the Mediterranean Diet which is great, but I’ve tweaked it for my body and have ditched gluten completely.
So final words, follow your body’s cues, listen carefully, and besides the quality and types of food your consuming, make sure to exercise, spend time outdoors, spend time with loved ones and focus on positivity.
