When we hear about weight loss we usually hear about how many situps, pushups, and miles you can run while eating salads all day. That, or some new fad diet and exercise regimen of the week. Or how to meal prep or use coconut oil in a thousand ways. What if I told you your gut has a lot to do with the equation?
It turns out that the intestinal tract is home to a whole community of complex microbial creatures that have everything to do with human health (please see the video at the bottom). And if your stomach microbes are out of whack it doesn’t matter how many pushups we do.
Thanks to modern sequencing technologies and nongenomic techniques, we are just beginning to understand how important the gut microbiome truly is…especially when it comes to preventing and fighting disease.
That being said, taking good care of our belly by way of fiber-rich foods is critical.
