Did you know that our metabolism is in part ruled by the microbiome? For example, overweight people frequently have poor gut bug diversity (meaning not enough “different” types of good gut bugs) when compared to slender people.
Lack of gut bug diversity (and overgrowth with any particular strain) is associated with many other health issues too, from #SIBO to #IBS to name a few.
Soooo… how do we lose the helpful metabolism-boosting gut bugs in the first place?
There are plenty of pretty standard ways and I bet you’ve experienced several – from rounds of antibiotics, a high-sugar diet, or a diet high in processed foods.
Also, hidden food allergies can cause gut conditions like leaky gut or small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO), or even an undiagnosed autoimmune illness could be wrecking your gut health 🤯🍟🌭🍕🥞🍭
Yes, I know what you’re thinking…. can it be reversed?
Probiotics may help, but don’t fall into the trap of picking the wrong ones that don’t move the weight loss needle. There are plenty of ways to “weed out” your gut garden….
Once you transform your gut on the inside, it’s so much easier to lose the gut on the outside!
Dialing up your digestive health (and feeding the good gut bugs) not only makes weight loss much more effortless, but has plenty of other positive side effects… like beautiful skin, more energy, and fewer tummy troubles overall!! 😱😟😩
