The Skinny Gut Diet: Heal your gut and restore your digestive health

Last week I shared with you why I’m doing The Skinny Gut Diet and this week I’m going to share how you can start too.

The Skinny Gut Diet book has given me the tools to be successful on healing my gut and have success in everything from optimal digestive health to weight loss.

The Skinny Gut Diet teaspoon tracker guide. I can't believe how much this opened my eyes to how much sugar I was consuming

Brenda Watson has incorporated an easy to understand calculation called the teaspoon tracker. What the teaspoon tracker does is show you the hidden sugars in everyday food where you least expect it. You go by this measurement to help you achieve your daily sugar needs (healthy sugars).

Aside from the teaspoon tracker, Brenda gives power tools that will help everyone have an easy time eating clean, wholesome, foods that will restore gut health and bring us on the road to recovery.

Here are my favorite power tips:

  • Power Tool #1: Lunchbox and Food Containers
  • Power Tool #2: Snacks
  • Power Tool #3: Digital Kitchen Food Scale

It goes into detail in the book, but I couldn’t function with out a plan. I like to make hard boiled eggs ahead of time, and put them in my fridge. Doing so uses Power Tool #1 & #2, I use food containers daily and I would be a bear without my snacks! The Kitchen food scale is optional, but again I use mine every day for accuracy. It’s an inexpensive tool to purchase.

Another tool I want to touch on is using a food journal. I use My Fitness Pal (it’s an app for your phone) and it helps a lot. I’m able to follow The Skinny Gut Diet’s rules effortlessly because of this app.

Gut Health – What Antibiotics Do To Your Digestive Health & How You Can Fix It:

I have never used a pro-biotic before The Skinny Gut Diet. I have always known the importance of pro-biotics, but in all honesty, I just forgot about it. I have taken antibiotics, ate all the wrong foods and now I have a gut imbalance and poor gut health. I’m happy to be incorporating a pro-biotic into my daily plan to help “crowd out” the bad bacteria with the good.

With using the tools that The Skinny Gut Diet provides, failure is not an option when it comes to restoring your gut health. It makes it so easy to follow.

  1. I like the mention of the app, and also a food scale, I have been wanting one for a while now. Digestive health is so important.

  2. Carbs are totally my downfall, however I have started to snack on trail mix instead of toast or a bagel. Sounds like an interesting read

  3. Sounds interesting! A friend of mine has been talking about probiotics too but I haven’t really looked into them myself. I also know I eat too many carbs and should turn to protein more often. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve started a low-carb meal planner and my husband is enjoying it but we could benefit from some of the tips in this book too. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Healthy snacks work out so much better for me when I prepare them ahead of time so that they’re as quick & easy as their less healthy alternatives!

  5. I’m terrified to see how many teapsoons (more likely CUPS!) of sugar I consume a day!!!

  6. I have been taking probiotics for awhile now and they do seem to help. I am going to have to check this out further, between way to many surgeries on my GI tract and frequent antibiotic use my gut is far from healthy and I am open to trying anything that might help.

  7. snacks are definitely hard for me, I probably don’t eat enough and then I get so hungry I grab whatever is convenient!

  8. been meaning to get a food scale for a while now. Our snacking has become a lot more healthier lately, that’s a start right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Our family has to get on track! I think I’ll give Skinny Gut a go!

  10. Sounds like an interesting read,me and hubby started today the first day of Lent to go carb free for 40 days

  11. I have been researching about gut health. As one ages, I truly believe our digestion changes. This sounds like an interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I want my husband to try this!

  13. I can only imagine the horrible amts of sugar/carbs/fats my body intakes daily.. why does that stuff seem to taste so good!!

  14. Looking for this book ASAP. It looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

  15. I agree 100% – digestive health is so important and overlooked! I could use a gut reset myself, I think

  16. I seen this book at the health food store on Friday, and now I wished I would have bought it, I need something like this to help me and plus my brain needs to be reprogramed also!

  17. I would love to check out this book. I definitely love my snacks. That’s my viceโ€ฆthose tasty, salty, snacks.

  18. I should pay more attention to my gut health and take probiotics

  19. Thanks for the tips. It’s surprising how much hidden sugar can be in your food!

  20. I think we can all benefit from knowing what exactly we’re putting into our bodies when we eat. I have to admit… I’m scared to find out, but I know I really should be paying better attention. Sounds like a great book! I’m going to check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Gut health is important to feel good!

  22. Probiotics definitely something to think about. Though, not sure how the stomach will take it.

  23. Her whole health plan is wonderfully laid out, however I am an old bachelor who never knows when or what I will eat…..very difficult to follow her plan

    • Something that could help is having healthy snacks available to you at all times. Like Almonds, they’re great for a fiber boost and they’re filling. Toss a handful in some portable containers or baggies and have them in your truck so when the moment hits – you have something to tie you over.

  24. The first thing I do when I get home from grocery shopping is cut up all the fruit and vegetables so they are ready to eat in the fridge for when I am hungry and want something. I put them in front of the shelves so its the first thing I see so I don’t reach for something that isn’t healthy

  25. I use MyFitnessPal as well!! I LOVE it ! i have lost 14lbs since January 4th using that app, drinking more water, eating no later then 7pm and working out on my elliptical for 30mins a few times a week

  26. I only buy healthy food and snacks,if you buy junk food its always eaten first

  27. Ive been having some belly issues lately, I thought it was a wheat thing, but Im very interesting in this article., Thanks for the info

  28. I haven’t tried Fitness Pal before but it sounds like I should give it a try.

  29. I have put on a lot of weight since the onset of diabetes and the lack of a clear plan I think Iโ€™ll give Skinny Gut a go

  30. I am a carb-a-holic and I know it’s doing terrible things to my body. I would be terrified to see the actual sugar instake numbers! I give my son probiotics for his digestive health yet I forget about taking care of myself. Mommy’s health is important, too.

  31. Thanks for all the info & suggestions we all need help with this

  32. I’ve been reading a lot about this and really think that I would benefit from following the skinny gut diet. Thanks for this great review. It really sums up how easy it can be to make such a vital difference ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. My problem is I AM SKINNY. I need to build muscle apparently and although I take antibiotics, i am not sure they are the right type or dosage for my body. i am following your progress and like what i see so far! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. I have been wondering if gut health is what I need to think about in order to lose weight. I have been thinking about added sugars. Thank you, this may be just what I need!

  35. I try to eat healthy, I think portion control is my biggest downfall

  36. Gut heath and happy health gut bacteria are important even if you are not trying to loose weight – I slip a few million into my children’s yoghurt once in a while.

  37. Thank you for all the great information…I have diabetes and am quite overweight

  38. Great article, always need help with my gut ๐Ÿ™‚
