Other ways probiotics prevent weight problems.
While shedding unsightly weight is definitely a battle, the war is arguably maintaining loss and preventing further gain.
Fortunately for us, prevention is as easy as implementing one of the popular strains — Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus fermentum or Lactobacillus amylovorus — into your diet. According to a 2013 study, 210 participants with a rather large gut, experience reduced body weight, fat around organs, BMI, a slimmer waist and hip circumference. Even more, patients reduced belly fat by 8.5 percent. It’s important to note that while many bacteria strains reduce weight gain, studies show others may increase weight gain.
Some strains have proven successful for weight loss. Still don’t know where to start? Experts suggest the following foods:
Fermented veggies: Kimchi, cabbage, collards, kale and celery
Lassi: A popular Indian yogurt drink
Tempeh: Like veggie burgers, this delicacy is created from soybeans
Natto: A powerful Japanese treat, rich in “good” gut bacteria
Kefir (or yogurt): Always go with organic options, rich in live cultures
You can also try a quality probiotic supplement.
