Negative Influences on our Gut

Probiotic foods are fat burning foods, research seems to show this.  First, you know that there are trillions of bacteria living in our guts.  You also know, factors in our lifestyles negatively affect our gut bacteria?  These factors are so widespread that it’s often difficult or impossible for us to avoid these factors.  Here are some things that can negatively affect our gut bacteria:

  • Chlorine and fluoride
  • Antibiotics and other pharmaceutical drugs
  • Pesticides and fertilisers in our food
  • Pollution from everywhere
  • Processed foods

Thankfully we can easily increase the number of good bacteria in our gut by eating probiotic foods.

Fat Burning Foods

Our gut system is sometimes referred to as our as our second brain.  Our gut flora balance in our digestive system can affect our mood, immune system, digestion and many other aspects of our health.  Did you know that the these same bacteria can also affect how much fat your body is burning?

Here’s an example; in a 2010 study showed that a group of people who drank 200g of fermented milk every day for 12 weeks reduced their abdominal fat by 4.6% and their subcutaneous fat by 3.3%.  In the study, 87 people were observed.  Half of these people were given a fermented milk with probiotics add.  The remaining people were fermented milk without probiotics added.  Those who drank the probiotic-rich fermented milk decreased their body fat.  Those who drank the milk without extra probiotics experienced no change in their body fat!

Can you imagine an easier way to burn fat than by eating or drinking a small portion of a yummy fermented or beverage every day. It’s pretty easy to add properly fermented foods to our diet.  Whatever you’re already eating, just try adding highly probiotic, fermented foods.  If you’re feeling good after eating a little fermented foods, you might be able to take the next step and cut out processed food.  If that works well for you, trying doing a little exercise.  Everyone knows this, but maybe Fermented foods are a “gateway drug” to burning fat and a generally a healthier lifestyle.
