HOW TO START EATING MORE PROBIOTICS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

 

Has eating probiotics for weight loss helped you lose weight? What probiotic foods are your favorite?

Consuming probiotics for weight loss can easily be added to your diet by eating some real food from your own garden or a farmer’s market. 

Here are a few of my favorite probiotics-rich foods that you should try!

KEFIR 

When researching probiotics for weight loss, you’ll find foods like kefir top the list. Made of a special combination of yeast (kefir grains), bacteria, and milk. 

It was 3,000 years ago that kefir was first described in Ukraine, Russia and in the Northern Caucasus Mountains.

Some studies also say that kefir can be helpful for those who are lactose intolerant. However, coconut milk from a health food store might be just as good of a dairy milk substitute.

KIMCHI AND SAUERKRAUT

Kimchi comes from Korea, and sauerkraut comes from Germany. Kimchi is bok choy, cabbage, and other veggies that are fermented, and sauerkraut is only fermented cabbage. Both of these foods are rich in enzymes digestion and probiotics for weight loss. They also support good bacteria growth because of their high amount of sour tasting organic acids.

KOMBUCHA

Kombucha is a blend of cane sugar and black tea that is carbonated. It is rich in probiotics, enzymes, and B vitamins. The Journal of Medicinal Food says that kombucha “harmonizes and balances metabolism in general and abolishes or limits fat accumulation.” It’s been popular in the Far East for over 2,000 years. Who knew this trendy healthy drink was loaded with probiotics for weight loss?

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (ACV)

An honorable mention, technically not a probiotics for weight loss, apple cider vinegar is great metabolism booster. It’s also been known to control diebetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol. To start drinking this, mix one cup of ACV with organic raw honey and a squeezed fresh lemon. You can mix it with another fat burner, coconut oil, as well. It makes a great vinaigrette.

A TEST OF TRUSTWORTHINESS

Remember that you should have a minimum of one bowel movement every day. Try adding probiotics to your diet, and you’ll hopefully see changes in your restroom habits. You should see these changes within a month. If you don’t, talk to Dr. Posner or your natural health care provider.
