Tips for Meal Planning with the Gut Protocol

Today I am kicking off week 1 of the new program from Beachbody Supertrainer Autumn Calabrese: The 4 Week Gut Protocol. In case you haven’t heard of it before, the Gut Protocol is a comprehensive nutrition program that explores how the food you eat affects your gut health and gut microbiome.

The goal of the program is to identify food that could be causing digestive issues and eliminate them to re-balance your gut microbiome and improve your energy levels, immunity, and overall health.
Along with the program, Autumn has released a series of videos to help guide you, as well as a 4 Week, Low Impact Workout Program that can be done along with the program if you choose to do so.

Learn more about the gut protocol HERE:
The Gut Protocol uses the color coded containers from 21 day fix to measure and plan your meals and daily food intake. But Autumn has tweaked the food lists to eliminate:

  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Alcohol
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Processed soy
  • Corn

So you will see some changes to the food lists. There is also an emphasis on plant diversity, so both the yellow and the red list have an “A” and a “B” option and you must choose from both sections of the list when planning your daily meals.

I thought it might be helpful if each week I shared my personal meal plan + what recipes I plan to make for my family that week.

Please keep in mind that I am following plan C of the Gut Protocol.
