I am excited to share this article featured in Eat This, Not That, where our Uplift Food founder and gut-health expert dietitian, Kara Landau, offers some helpful eating tips to lose your gut in your 50s.
With fad diets and quick-fix weight loss plans all around us, we might blindly follow the trends of dramatically reducing the calorie intake, omitting certain nutrients, or even keeping away entire food groups. However, there are more convenient and enjoyable ways to lose weight.
Kara advocates for a safer and sustainable approach that is beneficial for our long-term gut health. Let’s check out what she has to say below.
Consume Food High in Resistant Starch
In our 50s and beyond, our body undergoes plenty of changes that may make the weight loss process a bit more challenging. For example, our body fat and cholesterol levels might increase along with age. However, according to Kara, resistant starch could be a GAME CHANGER in helping with weight loss after 50.
Kara points out, “as resistant starch moves through the digestive tract, the fermentation process initiated by those starches help improve the insulin response and decrease fat storage around our waist.”
Consuming foods high in resistant starch on a daily basis can be effortless. It is as simple as treating yourself to a power breakfast of oatmeal or replacing your snacks with healthier alternatives during the day. Uplift Food’s Prebiotic Bliss Bites can be a perfect alternative to snack on CARE-FREE.
Make Sure You are Getting Enough Fiber
Do you know most people in America fail to meet their daily fiber requirements? And you might be one of them.
Uplift’s Gut Happy Cookies are a great source of fiber. They provide close to 50% of the recommended daily fiber intake in just one serving. Kara advises that we can reap the benefits of those cookies by either crushing them over your favorite Greek yogurt or enjoying them as digestive biscuits.
If you are more of a grazer, give Uplift Food’s newest product, Prebiotic Puffs, a try to satisfy your tastebuds and cravings. As the highest-fiber puffs in the market, they pack a powerful nutrient punch and are delicious.
In this article, RD Kara Landau offers some simple eating habits to lose weight. Choose the one that makes the most sense for you and isn’t difficult to maintain long-term. Why not kick off your healthiest-diet daily route with the help of Uplift Food? Nutrition is highly individualized, so there is no one diet that fits all. However, Uplift Food’s snacking range can always be your best sidekick, nourishing your gut, satisfying your tastebuds, and providing a wide variety of nutrients that meet your daily needs.
