Clean Up Your Farts!
Bad carbs, gut inflammation, and poor nutrient absorption.
It’s one thing to fart in public and hope that no one knows its you; it’s a whole different animal to think you’re about to squeak one out that’ll sound juicy, nasty, and make everyone look right at you. Today’s email is intended to make your farts quieter and safer for public 🙂
Bad Carbs Create “Gluten Farts”: These are the worst of the bunch, and I suspect that it’s the gluten that gave beans a bad name. It seems that beans, alone, don’t actually do what people say they do… but they are good for the heart, since they’re rich in protein and low in fat. It’s the white bread, flour, and starches that bloat you up, make you gaseous, and end up making you run to the bathroom to make sure there wasn’t an accident last time you let go.
Gut Inflammation Creates “Risky Farts”: I define a risky fart as that moment of insecurity where you’re not sure you had the same level of control as normal, and you hope you’re not getting old. Others may refer to this as a SHART, but I disagree; that’s only when sphincter failure occurs. When your gut is inflamed, you’re bound to have less motor control, sensory feedback, and intensity control with contraction.
Poor Nutrient Absorption Leads To “Stinky Farts”: When your digestive system builds up ‘gook,’ or poorly digested material, it coats the inner layer of your intestines, and prevents the absorption of many of the best nutrients you are eating; the gas you’re emitting contains poorly digested nutrients, which is why it smells so badly.
If you think you’ve been eating well, but it’s not working out, you may want to check out your gut and be sure you’re absorbing all the great superfoods you’re consuming.
One solution that seems to help it all is eating more baby carrots. The fibre content is really good for creating a mechanical effect in your gut, and getting rid of the ‘gook’ that’s built up. However, there are other great options if you’re sick of baby carrots, want to mix it up, or you need to take a more comprehensive approach after years of ‘wear and tear’ on your digestive tracts.
