How to Lose Pounds and Weight Loss: Are You Destined to Fail?

Weight Loss

Staying trim is about so much more than meeting your weight loss goals. When you boost your inner ecology with friendly bacteria, it can help you to shed pounds and improve your overall health!

While weight loss is never easy, you can set yourself up for success by boosting your inner ecology first of all. Did you know that the type of bacteria in your gut can determine whether or not you're overweight?

For some of us, dieting again and again is a familiar and even life-long battle. But as we dig a little deeper, it's shocking to find that certain factors may make it more difficult for some people to lose weight and fight obesity.

The type of bacteria found the digestive system can determine if you are overweight or slim.

C-section risk: A baby born via C-section has double the risk of becoming obese by the age of three compared to a baby born vaginally.

C-sections are more common than ever before with nearly 32% of all births in 2007 born through C-section delivery1. While a C-section is necessary for safety in some cases, routine C-section brings with it a higher risk for developing a lifetime of metabolic disorders. One study pointed to an unsettling link between childhood obesity and C-section delivery2. If you or your baby was born by C-section, does that mean that the deck is stacked against you when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight? Not so fast…

Your Weight and Your Inner Ecosystem

Today, scientists know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are made up of more bacteria than human cells at a ratio of 10 to 13. This means that the type of bacteria in your body influences your overall health in every area of your life.

The type of bacteria found the digestive system can determine if you are overweight or slim. On top of helping to digest food, friendly bacteria in the gut can help you to maintain a healthy weight.

If you've tried every fad diet under the sun, it may be time to think again. Whether it's a low-carb or a low-sugar diet, neglecting to focus on your digestive health could make it more difficult than ever for you to lose weight.

Sugar-free diet foods can actually change the environment of the intestines by triggering whole-body inflammation4. This inflammation will disrupt healthy metabolism, which can contribute to obesity over time. On top of that, intestinal inflammation caused by artificial sweeteners can damage the healthy balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut.
