Imagine a new you enjoying a healthy, sustainable lifestyle that allows you to lose weight and keep it off while you're having the time of your life. Recently featured on Good Day Sacramento live for National Nutrition Month 2013®, The Party Girl Diet's delicious new lifestyle requires no tedious counting of calories or points, and allows you to "keep the party going lose while you lose the weight."
While National Nutrition Month® is a great time to get healthy, anytime is the perfect time to start living a healthy lifestyle. Documenting the health and wellness industry's most respected health and fitness research, The Party Girl Diet offers a truly delicious and fun way of life wherein you can enjoy *red wine, *dark chocolate, and a wide variety of yummy foods without the deprivation and restrictions typical of fad diets.
In the 2013 Good Day Sacramento TV segment featuring The Party Girl Diet, viewers discover the importance of eating foods that provide probiotics and prebiotics, which in addition to enhancing gut health, encourages a flat belly since positive side effects of consuming probiotics and prebiotics include less tummy bloat and other digestive woes.
What exactly are probiotics and prebiotics...and what is the difference? Probiotics are enzymes to aid in digestion by adding more "good bacteria" into your digestive system. Foods in this category include yogurt with live cultures, Kiefer, miso, signature foods on The Party Girl Diet such as dark chocolate and red wine, and and foods that have been fermented such as sauerkraut, pickles, etc., to name a few.
Prebiotics are foods that "stimulate growth and/or activity of bacteria in the digestive system." Another way to look at prebiotics is that they feed or fortify the good bacteria in your gut. Foods in this category include rolled oats, beans, raw garlic, raw and cooked onions, raw Jerusalem Artichokes, etc.
To kickstart healthy digestion, enjoy the following healthy Party Girl Diet Flat Belly Salsa Recipe, which was recently featured on Good Day Sacramento live:
