The Gut Health & Weight Connection
Gut Health, Weight Gain & Metabolism
Struggling with unwanted weight that seems to have crept up in your middle years is a common concern, but there's more to it than meets the eye. One crucial piece of the weight loss puzzle is the connection between poor gut health and weight gain.
Bloating & Food Intolerances
This can lead to a sluggish metabolism as well as digestive symptoms such as bloating, intolerances and constipation. Poor gut health affects your well-being, but this evidence-based health and weight management programme can end your digestive discomfort and diet restrictions. I am based in Manchester, but online consultations mean distance is no barrier to us working together,
A healthy gut can help to:

Your gut, often referred to as the "second brain," is home to trillions of microorganisms, collectively known as the gut microbiome. These microbes play a crucial role in digestion, nutrient absorption, and even influencing your metabolism.
Poor gut health can contribute to weight gain:
Inflammation: A disrupted gut microbiome can lead to chronic inflammation, which is associated with insulin resistance and obesity. Inflammation can impair your body's ability to regulate blood sugar and metabolise fat effectively.
Hormonal Imbalance: The gut and hormones are closely linked. An imbalanced gut can disrupt hormonal regulation, leading to weight gain. For instance, imbalances in leptin, a hormone that controls hunger and fullness, can result from poor gut health.
Cravings and Appetite: Your gut microbiome can influence your cravings and appetite. Harmful bacteria may promote cravings for sugary or high-calorie foods, making it difficult to maintain a healthy diet.
Digestive Issues: Gut problems like constipation or diarrhoea can hinder nutrient absorption and contribute to weight gain. When your body doesn't absorb nutrients efficiently, it may signal hunger even when you've eaten enough.
