It is widely accepted that our diet affects our gut health, however, in recent years there has been more research focusing on the relationship between physical activity and our microbiome. Some studies have shown that incorporating 30-60 minutes of physical activity at least 3 days per week can help to increase the population and diversity of the gut flora. However, it is important to maintain this level of physical activity as these changes can reverse if an individual returns to a less active lifestyle
A team at Monash University, located in Australia, conducted diet-related research on individuals with IBS. Through their research they developed The low FODMAP diet which uses a 3-phased approach to help people identify potential food triggers for their IBS. The initial elimination phase is not intended for long term use, and patients should complete phase two involving the reintroduction of various food categories. It is important to work with a dietitian while doing the low FODMAP diet for appropriate guidance and assessment of outcomes.
This is an individualized approach as each person has a different lifestyle. The best weight loss plan is a realistic one that can fit into your day without significantly impacting your quality of life. Generally speaking, it will likely involve adjusting the amount and timing of meals/snacks in addition to incorporating or increasing physical activity levels.
The cause of a food intolerance may be due to a variety of factors including a lack of specific digestive enzymes or a hypersensitivity within the digestive tract. It is helpful to work with a dietitian to identify specific foods within your diet to avoid while maintaining the most liberalized diet possible.
Both ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD) fall within the inflammatory bowel disease category of gastrointestinal illnesses. The two illnesses differ based on where the inflammation occurs, the appearance of the damaged areas, and the affected location within the gastrointestinal tract. In the case of UC, the inflammation is present only in the large intestine (colon and rectum) and damaged areas appear in a continuous pattern within the affected region. In patients with CD, the damaged areas have a patchy appearance and can affect any part of the GI tract, however, most frequently appear in the ileum (the third portion of the small intestine).
