If your goal is to have fantastic levels of digestive enzymes, the foods you should be avoiding are pretty obvious. You don’t need to have gone to Harvard and studied nutrition for decades to figure it out. Junk food needs to stay off of your plate. That includes pizza, fried chicken, fast food, soda, and sugary foods. These are the food that devitalize a body. Same thing for meals out of a can, or boxes that you’re supposed to pop into the microwave for two minutes.
I’ve often said to my patients, “If you eat like crap, you’re going to end up feeling and looking like crap.” Perhaps that’s blunt, but it’s true.
When you are trying to create optimal gut health, avoid making snap decisions about what you’re going to eat. Think carefully and plan ahead when it comes to preparing your meals. Including preparation and cooking, you should be able to make a nutritious meal in twenty to thirty minutes. When cooking your meals, remember that if you heat food to over 49 degrees centigrade, the enzymes in the food are destroyed. That means your body must provide a larger volume of enzymes to digest the food.

When you eat fresh, natural foods like sprouts, raw vegetables, leafy greens, and plenty of fruit, the foods themselves provide a good dose of enzymes. Some people are going to read this and say that I’m crazy because I recommend eating fruit. They’ll claim that Candida will run amok if you eat fruit. But that’s not true. If you eat tree-ripened fruit and your digestive system is in excellent condition, you’ll be absolutely fine.
On the other hand, if you’re drinking a few cans of pop and eating three or four donuts a day, snacking on a green apple isn’t going to save your gut. You can’t have it both ways. Although, as your gut improves, and your enzymes become more powerful, you can probably get away with an occasional piece of pizza or glass of wine.
I’m not the food police. I try to tell you people that, I don’t police people with they eat. I always instill values about eating good, fresh, healthy food, and then you can, every now and then, get away with some “treats.”
If you want to achieve good gut health, fill your refrigerator with fresh food. Throw out the junk and buy the healthy stuff. Taking those steps will pay off for you in terms of energy, weight control, appetite control, less bloating, and less gas.
