Trust your gut it’s on to something.
Our guts seem to be where fat and discomfort take refuge.
It seems no matter what changes we make to our diet or exercise the fat and paunchy status of our gut is the most resilient. It just won’t go.
Multiple studies have shown that regardless of weight most people do not have the optimal balance of good and bad bacteria in their intestines. This imbalance can thwart your weight loss efforts completely.
How to put your gut in check?
Probiotics can be a start. Probiotics, often found in yogurt or probiotic supplements have a high and healthy dose of good bacteria. More important they can actively participate in stabilizing the bacteria in your intestines and positively activate your digestive system.
“In the latest study, obese people were able to reduce their abdominal fat by nearly 5 percent, and their subcutaneous fat by over 3 percent, just be drinking a probiotic-rich fermented milk beverage for 12 weeks.” – NutraIngredients
