One decade, we’re told to cut fat from our diets to lose weight. The next, we’re told to count calories. Then it’s all about ditching carbs. But could it be that we’ve had it wrong all along and the secret is actually already within us? More specifically, within our gut?
Tim Spector, a professor of genetic epidemiology and author of The Diet Myth [Hachette], says yes. “The more diverse your gut microbes, the more likely you are to be healthy and lean, and the more sparse your microbes, the more likely you are to be overweight,” Spector says. “This is knowledge that didn’t exist five years ago.”
Comment below what you thought. I do believe that stomach bacteria has a HUGE impact on health and ultimately weight loss. What do you think? Do you agree/disagree? Please let me know, I love hearing what you lovelies have to say!
