An amazing hack is maintaining a healthy gut. Gut health is the most important measure in preventing disease and highest micronutrient absorption because if the digestive system gets compromised from stress and other toxins, this unleashes unhealthy bacteria to flourish and increasing the risk of disease.
To boost the most absorption of healthy nutrients from food, you need to consume the easily digested foods first and bust overeating by not mixing tastes, textures, and variety. That’s how the fast food industry assures you continuously consume more and more of their products. A fast-food burger meal, for example, has the bun, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, ketchup, meat, and pickles. Pair it with a soft drink and fries and you’ve fallen into their addictive trap. Essentially mixing textures, tastes, and variety triggers your brain to eat more. Eating a mixed meal will trigger your appetite to want dessert and so on goes the cycle of cravings and overeating habits.
