You are what you eat.
I heard that a few THOUSAND times growing up, and I'm sure you did too. It's a saying that I think is pretty easy to see some inherent truth to: at this point we all realize that the food we're eating has a huge impact on our current health and the shape of our body.
(If you don't believe that yet, sign up & show up for my free webinar below and I'll explain it to you then)
So back to the analogy. You are what you eat. It's all well and good to eat the right foods at the right times, but the story doesn't end there. What if you aren't actually USING the food you're eating because you're not DIGESTING it properly? You can spend a small fortune on groceries, but if your body can't actually break them down into their useable parts, you're literally flushing your money down the toilet. You're also not going to see the results you're looking for, like fat loss and increased energy.
That's why this weeks' expert interview is all about Digestive Fire (that means the power of your digestion) and how to build that up. The better your digestive fire, the more skilled your body is at breaking down food and then using it the way we want it to. Check it out below:
