Nutrition and Natural Tactics: Your Weight, Your Microbiota
August 25 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm$55
The bacteria in your gut may be the secret to that slim waist you are after. Breaking research is indicating that the trillions of microbes in your digestive system, known as your ‘microbiota’, could be influencing your metabolism and surprisingly, affecting your weight.
It seems that a diversity of microbes in the gut seems to be a key factor to staying slim. In Western societies with western style diets and eating habits, the diversity of our microbiota is much reduced and focuses on species that enhance weight gain. Whereas in other countries with more traditional diets the diversity and types of microbiota enhance weight reduction, hence those societies are noted for their health and balanced weight.
The good news is that it may be possible to alter our microbiota levels and species to assist in bringing our weight down. Studies indicate that lean people have 70% more gut bacteria and more diversity than that of their overweight peers.
This seminar will focus on the dietary and lifestyle factors that can enhance and promote the diversity and variety of your gut bacteria, and how you can utilise this to your health and weight advantage.
