If you want to burn fat, fix your digestion.

What role does your probiotic health play in helping you to burn fat and avoid diabetes? 

We've known for a while that it definitely plays some role, but almost all of the experiments done so far have been done on mice, not humans.

This month, a study conducted at Lund University in Sweden on 674 subjects found that probiotic health definitely plays a role. Subjects who had higher levels of obesity related metabolites also exhibited an overgrowth in four specific kinds of unfriendly bacteria.

What this suggests is that the gut microbiome could be a mediator between high levels of these metabolites and obesity. 

The moral of the story is this: if you want to burn fat and be healthy, one of the first steps you need to take is in fixing your digestion and providing a good environment in your intestinal tract for friendly bacterial growth. 

 

Here's your action plan: 

  1. Include fermented foods in your diet like Kimchi, raw sauerkraut, and kombucha.
  2.  Eat lots of green leafy vegetables, and if you have severe gut issues, consider including a treatment resistant starch like cassava flour in your diet. 
  3. Avoid processed sugar. 
  4. Get lots of sleep and manage your stress.
