You Can’t Always Trust Your Gut Bacteria When it Comes to Weight Loss
Most people aren’t aware of the hundreds of types of bacteria that live in their gut. Mostly in your colon, these bacteria come in many types – some good and others not so good. Also known as “gut flora” or “microbiome,” these bacteria are important to maintain a healthy immune system, aid in digestion and help prevent disease.
When an imbalance occurs, there is an increased risk of developing serious conditions like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes or, possibly, even cancer.
Recent studies suggest that an unhealthy balance of gut bacteria may encourage weight gain and abdominal fat. Interestingly, researchers found obese individuals tend to have greater numbers of certain bacteria than normal weight individuals. Further studies suggest these bacteria, when present in large numbers, may increase the number of calories absorbed from food.
