1 Strange Way To Burn Belly Fat
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
Your body has billions of tiny bacteria which keep you healthy.
These same bacteria aid your immune system which helps you fight off infections and HARMFUL bacteria from invading your body.
As a recap, you are born sterile, meaning you are free from any BACTERIA and toxins.
When you take your first sip of breast milk, she is introducing HEALTHY bacteria to your body, where they colonize in your intestines.
You not only get bacteria from breast milk, but also from the environment.
As you get older, you are slowly weaned from breast milk once you start to ingest solid foods.
At this point, the bacteria have fully made their home in your intestines, and have already started to PROTECT you!
They help fight off infections, aid the immune system to launch attacks against foreign bodies which are harmful, and may also protect you from different allergens you might be exposed to.
Essentially, these healthy bacteria, which have made their homes in your intestines, are slowly and methodically protecting you from dangerous microbes.
You know, the kind which can make you SICK.
These same bacteria which keep you healthy may also help aid in WEIGHT LOSS!
That sound you just heard? That’s right, it was your mind getting blown away!
The research is still young, but promising to say the least!
There is still a lot to understand about how these bacteria may aid in weight loss, but what has come out so far is nothing short of AMAZING.
To start, Japanese researchers showed that supplementing diets with a strain of Lactobacillus bacteria resulted in a reduction of abdominal fat by 4.6%, and your subcutaneous fat dropped by 3.3%!
Other factors which were included showed a decrease in body weight, BMI, and waist and hip circumference.
The results were over the course of 12 weeks with supplementation of 200g/day!
But there’s more. Let me explain…
There is other research pointing to a special blend of Lactobacillus, a strain which has been fortified with a special type of fatty acid, CLA.
CLA fatty acid has been linked to weight loss in both animals and humans.
You see, research has shown another popular type of bacteria in your intestines, Bifidobacterium, can be converted into t10, c12-CLA.
They wanted to see if they could mimic the natural conversion and get the same results.
What is the importance of t10, c12 -CLA?
I am glad you asked!
The bacteria strain was modified to include t10, c12-CLA, and showed tremendous potential in the body.
This modified bacterial strain changed the fatty acid composition in fat tissue and other organs.
They noticed that by introducing CLA, there was a four-fold increase in CLA in adipose tissue and a 2.5 fold increase in CLA in the liver.
CLA can act as a potent antioxidant in your body. By increasing CLA, you may help reduce inflammation and may reduce fat stores.
In fact, t10, c12-CLA has already been shown to reduce fat stores in humans.
Now here comes the MOST important aspect of weight loss.
When you are overweight, you may encounter different health related problems.
Things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and having that extra weight to carry around are not the only things you need to worry about.
Research is starting to show the exact gut flora, which keeps you healthy, is different when you are overweight.
Confused? Let me explain.
Bacteria have the ability to adapt to its surroundings. In overweight individuals, gut flora tends to be different than that of lean individuals, requiring different nutrients to make them work.
When these same overweight or obese individuals lost weight, the gut flora changed to mimic that of a lean individual.
Gut flora in your intestines has the ability to keep you healthy by aiding the immune system in fighting off toxic bacteria.
These same bacteria may now be an important key to weight loss.
Gut flora has the ability to alter itself to adapt to its surroundings. This may aid the body in proper processing of nutrients.
This may be the KEY to keeping your WEIGHT in CHECK helping you to maintain your chiseled, lean look.
