Your bowel also has a part in your success in losing weight
. Billions of bacteria live on a healthy intestinal mucosa
. These intestinal bacteria support your digestion, help to absorb nutrients and strengthen your immune system.
However, studies have shown that People who gain light weight or lose weight only slowly often have a bacterial imbalance in the intestines
. If your bacterial population is changed in favour of the Firmicutes bacteria, this can lead to a tenth more calories being available to you. What helped our ancestors through harsh winters in the past is now an obstacle to success.
People, on the other hand, who predominantly contain bacteroidetes bacteria in their intestinal flora, lose weight more easily. A change in your diet to a diet rich in fibre
can be useful at this point. Dietary fibres serve the Bacteroidetes bacteria in your intestines as a source of energy and are mainly found in unprocessed foods, nuts, vegetables, fruit, legumes or wholemeal products. These foods are also especially beneficial for the feeling of satiety
and provide you with many vitamins and nutrients.
With your nutrition diary you can identify simple carbohydrates, fats and sugary foods on your diet and replace them with complete alternatives. So you actively support your intestinal flora – and you turn on "slimming"
