Who doesn’t want to lose weight? It’s a constant struggle we all face, as we resort to various weight loss regimes to shed those unwanted kilos. If you thought following a strict diet was the only way to achieve your weight loss goals, there’s more to it. A new study has found that apart from diets and other regimes to keep us fit and healthy, there are other factors that are involved when it comes to losing weight, particularly gut bacteria. Gut bacteria refers to friendly microorganisms that are present in your stomach which work towards maintaining a healthy gut ecosystem, aiding digestion.
According to the researchers from the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports at the University of Copenhagen, the proportion of some gut bacteria may be connected to how much weight a person is able to lose under certain circumstances. This means that a one-size-fits-all approach to dieting is pretty pointless.
