Eat PREbiotic foods and take a prebiotic supplement
Prebiotics are the things that your helpful digestive bacteria like and thrive on. In food form they are:
- Barely ripened bananas
- Wild rice
- Raw honey
- Coconut flour
- Green banana flour
- Cooked and cooled potatoes.
Add a few of these foods and exercise diversity as much as possible (don’t eat the same thing every day for long periods of time!). Add a prebiotic supplement every day here is my favorite one available on Amazon, it tastes great and is easy to mix in with water or a smoothie – https://www.amazon.com/dp/

We do not digest the fiber in these foods well but our helpful bacteria thrive on them. We need to feed our good bacteria friends the types of food they can thrive on in order for them to succeed! Our helpful bacteria in our digestive systems “run the show” on so many processes in the body. They speak to our brains via the vagus nerve and dictate food cravings. If your less helpful bacteria are in control because they are currently being overfed, they will vote for more processed food and unhealthy carbs. When our helpful bacteria are thriving, they vote for less sugar and help us to crave better food choices. You do not actually have lack of willpower, you have millions of voters asking for that candy bar. See my recommendations section for supplements to try.
