The Probiotic Diet
Can a healthy balance of good bacteria in your belly really help you lose weight? Dr. Oz put it to the test. Science has shown that the more diverse your healthy bacteria is in your gut, the less likely it is to be obese or overweight. Dr. Oz talked about how scientific studies he has read has shown two sets of mice. One set with a healthy gut flora, and the other set without as much healthy probiotics. The mice with healthy gut mice don’t gain weight while eating the same diet as the set of mice without the healthy gut bacteria. The question is, does it work with humans as well?
Dr. Oz spoke with nutritionist Frances Largeman-Roth about if she follows the probiotic diet, and she said that yes she does. Frances said that there are many options to contain live active cultures to improve your healthy bacteria balance. You can eat foods like :
- Cottage Cheese
