So today, let's put all the information that I've told you about my theory, formula and weight loss together.
First . . . let's talk about the "normal" function of the "intestines" because ultimately . . . this is where all of our weight issue begin.
Okay . . . so we all know we have the small intestine and the large intestine.
The small intestine consists of 3 parts . . . the part that connects to the stomach, the main section and the part that connects to the large intestine which is also called the large bowel or colon.
Now, the large intestine actually has 6 parts to it, but today we only need to know the basics. And that its purpose is to absorb water and salts from the material that has not been digested from our food and that it gets rid of any waste products left over as poop.
Okay . . . so the large intestine houses the largest amount of the body's "good" and "bad" bacteria. With "good" being a little more than "bad". This "good" to "bad" ratio is imperative for optimal health and weight loss.
Now, the small intestine is basically "sterile" with only a small amount of bacteria in the third part that connects the small intestine to the large intestine. This bacteria in "good" bacteria and called the "gatekeeper" to optimal health. Its job is to keep the "bad" bacteria in the large intestine . . . from entering the small intestine.
Okay . . . so here's how a healthy digestive system is supposed to work.
When we eat food . . . it goes into the stomach to be ground up and passed to the small intestine. Once in the small intestine, the nutrients from that food find very small holes in the lining of the intestinal walls to pass through to attach to our blood and be dispersed to our cells for energy. And any toxins, non-usable material and the lectins that we spoke of the other day . . . get put into the waste category to go to the large intestine to be eliminated.
That's how the intestinal system is supposed to work.
And with this process . . . we are able to burn calories and fat efficiently. Therefore . . . weight gain is not an issue.
But . . . when "LIFE GETS IN THE WAY" . . . like . . .
