When it comes to a Gut Healing Protocol, generally speaking the largest difference between individuals is the amount of animal protein they need to consume to stay satiated & to balance their blood sugar. Some very active individuals who are engaged in strength training for example require a little more protein than someone who is more sedentary. This is also the case with carbohydrates, a very active person or athlete probably needs around 10-20% more carbohydrates, coming from foods such as sweet potato & beetroot & carrot & perhaps some berries & low-sugar fruits (depending on their level of gut health), than a sedentary person.
The best way for you to determine these differences is to stay in tune with your body. It takes time to develop a good intuition of your body’s needs & certainly if you find yourself craving sweets all the timer, it doesn’t mean you should go & eat all the chocolate bars, but just work out how your body reacts to different nutrients & go from there.
If you’re a vegetarian on a gut healing journey thats great! By incorporating some animal protein such as that coming from eggs & bone broth & even fish, you’ll adequately supply your body with the nourishing properties that it brings.
