Up your intake of probiotics to lose weight.
By Toni Gasparis
Research has shown that the health of your gut bacteria may be important for maintaining a healthy weight. Certain studies have shown that the gut bacteria of people who have a healthy weight versus people who are obese vary significantly. Improve the health of your gut with this probiotic diet plan from nutritionist Frances Largeman-Roth.
Take a Shot (or Two) of Probiotics
If you're not a fan of sauerkraut or pickled vegetables but still want to get in your three daily servings of probiotics, you can supplement with a probiotic shot one to two times per day. Companies sell probiotic shots that are pre-packaged, or you can take a shot of kombucha for the same effect.
