‘The Role of Gut Health in Weight Management’ with Liz Isenring
Gut Health in Weight Management
The gut-brain axis allows for two-way communication between the brain and the gut.
That what we think about affects our digestion is not so surprising – just think about when you are stressed and give a talk or sit an exam. Do you feel butterflies in your stomach? Do you need to race off to the toilet? Well that’s your brain “talking to” your gut. What has only recently become known and is a current hot topic is that the gut (and more specifically the components produced by our gut bacteria) can influence our brain. So, our gut and gut health can impact our appetite, mood, food cravings and even sleep. How food affects our mood and nutritional psychiatry is an emerging area. So, knowing about nutrition is not only important from a weight reduction point of view but may also help people feel better, less hungry and stick to a healthy eating plan. We discuss the research about how our gut health can impact our mood and weight loss and maintenance efforts to help people achieve their health goals.
