i am not formaly diagnosed with anything but i assume there is a good chance my gut health is'nt the greatest. I can really bad digestive discomfort when i eat candy, fast food, bread if i eat it everyday, etc. i am pretty health concious. i am no longer going to eat grains. so right now i have beef, coconut oil and whey protein. i don't know what else to eat, like the stuff other people eat does not sound appetizing, i will eat healthy but i want food that taste good. should i add bananas?

Its a combination of nutrients in the bone broth. It has gelatin which is both used for repair and protects the gut from further irration, glutamine which is also used for repair, and a few other gut specific nutrients including certain minerals. So the broth goes in, coats the gut lining (because of the gelatin), and then all the nutrients the gut needs to repair are right there.

Why does homemade bone broth help the gut? I actually make my own. Thanks!

don't confuse the timeline. I used to eat crap, and certainly know what triggers issues with my digestive system. I now consider myself health conscious. Could be the same for the OP. They've learned their triggers, now want to be health conscious and are looking for suggestions to help.

The OP eats candy, fast food, and bread - and considers themselves health conscious. They state that "the stuff other people eat doesn't sound appetizing". Do you really think the OP will be consuming ferments and bone broths? You are correct in your suggestion, but in this case I fear it is throwing pearls before swine. Unfortunately.

Also it's better if they're homemade (very simple to make), the ones you buy are usually pasteurized and low in probiotics. Still they're good, but homemade is by far the best!

My protocol to heal a leaky gut, which I currently have:

Lots of chicken broth. I buy the organic variety sold at any grocery store. Usually just nuke some veggies and add broth to it for a quick soup.

10 mg of glutamine mixed with 2 tablespoons of Bob's Red Mill unmodified potato starch before every meal - this resistant starch is a prebiotic that will feed your good bacteria. This is essential.

Probiotics before every meal for the first week. After that probiotics once a day.

Avoid gluten and dairy completely besides kefir.

Nightly super pre and probiotic snack: 1/4 cup kefir (goat kefir if you can get it since its less allergenic), 2 tablespoons potato starch, a forkful of organic sauerkraut, a forkful of Bubbie's pickles, a teaspoon of raw honey. Mix and eat. Doesn't taste that great, but not unbearable either. Fermented foods are key to fixing the gut. Better if you can make your own fermented food than buying from the store.

Take a GABA challenge test (1000 mg of GABA) once a week to see how your gut and blood brain barrier are healing. The first time I did the GABA challenge test I was gasping for air and felt very tired. The next week after doing the above protocol I felt a lot better, but the GABA still had some effects. It takes time to heal a leaky gut.

Bone broth aka home made stock. Can be used to make beautiful stews, and provides the nutrients needed to repair leaky gut. That and probiotics. But the broth/stock is a must IMO.

I would also experience digestive discomfort if I was eating candy, fast food and bread everyday. Does that mean my gut is in bad shape? Or is it the way Mother Nature chose to tell me "stop eating that junk, honey, or I'll give you more gas/bloating/... (put your symptoms here)..."?

Skip the junk food for a while and come back later with a real question!

Fermented foods, like natural yogurt, sauerkraut, and kefir will add probiotics to your diet.
