Gut Microbe Imbalances
We have over 1,000 species of bugs in our gut, and bacteria cells out number our own cells 10 times over. We call this the microbiome – it’s the place where all these beneficial bacteria live and work within us to maintain a healthy gut.
We now know that the bacteria in our gut profoundly affects our weight and the mechanics of our metabolism. Studies have shown that taking the gut bacteria from a thin mouse and putting it into a fat mouse can cause the fat mouse to lose dramatic amounts of weight without changing its diet.
Some bacteria trigger inflammation leading to a leaky gut, while others are anti-inflammatory. Inflammation triggers insulin resistance and diabetes, independent of your caloric intake. So, clearly, it’s important to heal your gut if it is damaged by imbalances Cut down your sugar consumption, Increase the amount of fiber in your diet by consuming fresh vegetables with every meal. Add good fats like olive oil and avocados. Supplement smartly and support healthy flora with good quality omega-3 fatty acids. Take a quality Probiotic supplement as well. Eat Probiotic foods like unsweetened yoghurt, fermented foods like Sauerkraut, kimchi, tempeh, and miso .
