Losing weight is like a sale. You have to get it all out before you can put on the new collection. That doesn’t just mean the fat from the fat cells. If you want to lose weight successfully and stay lean, everything has to come out of your intestines, what has accumulated there and is superfluous. Meanwhile scientists have found out that the composition of the intestinal flora plays an important role in losing weight, because it differs between normal and overweight people. Those who tend to lose weight probably have too many of the so-called Firmicutes bacteria in their intestines. They are very diligent in the utilization of food. Unfortunately a bit too busy, because they get more caloriesout of your food than you would like. And that appears then as hip gold.
Are your bacteria taking it too well with you?
Firmicutes make sure that you don’t starve to death in hard times by getting everything out of the smallest shred of food. This way, you consume about ten percent more caloriesthan the amount of food you actually eat. Thousands of years ago this made perfect sense, but in Europe and the USA we have more than enough food nowadays. Firmicutes love fat and sugar. If you eat too many sweetened and fatty foods, then you feed your little fattening bacteria at the same time. The more body weight, the more firmicutes are found in the intestinal flora, at least that was observed in mice. It is strongly assumed that it is quite similar in humans. And that in turn suggests that firmicutes mean well with you, but well meant is not always good. With an intestinal cleansing you normalize your intestinal flora. This also has an effect on the number of Firmicutes.
Start the slimming program in your intestinal flora
Where the Firmicutes feel comfortable, there are too few bacteria from the strain Bacteroidetes. For example, they cannot use fat as well and pass it quickly through the intestines instead of storing it in your fat cells. Normally both strains, Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes, should be present in your intestinal flora in a ratio of 1:1. However, Firmicutes multiply if you eat too many sweets or fast food too often. t can also be genetically determined that the fattening bacteria feel particularly good in your intestines. But you can reprogram your intestinal flora. For this purpose, it is worthwhile to restart it with the help of an intestinal cleansing. So you first throw out of the intestine everything that has accumulated over the years.
The classic method of intestinal cleansing is enemas, but it is easier and even more effective. Flea seed husks, flax seeds and chia seeds are great fibresthat swell when moist. On the one hand, you will stay full longer, on the other hand, these seeds have the property to take everything out of the intestines that does not belong there. While they push themselves very slowly through your intestine and stimulate the intestinal movement, they collect leftover food and deposits. Later everything comes out with your bowel movement and then goodbye.
Unfortunately, this does not work overnight. Your bowels need a few weeks to adjust. Give it this time as well as good food like the mentioned ones, which are available as powder or capsules. Linseed and chia seeds are also little marvels and taste great in yoghurt or muesli with milk.
Bacteroidetes love fiber. These are the fibres from plants and so-called prebiotics. You can find them in, among other things, legumes, parsnips, black salsify, endive salad and leek. If vegetables, fruit and cereals are regularly on your menu, the bacteriodetes will multiply, firmicutes will become fewer and you will lose weight more easily. You can find out whether this is really due to your intestinal flora with an intestinal analysis. With the self-test for home useyou can easily take a stool sample and send it to our laboratory. Your intestinal flora is then analysed. You will then receive your results online – including information about the ratio of Firmicutes and Bacteriodetes in your intestine. And then you say goodbye to the superfluous fat – no more see you soon!
