Studies suggest emulsifiers, added in processed foods, strip the gastrointestinal tract of good bacteria, blocking the fat-burning process and making the body hold on to fat. Altered gut bacteria leads to inflammatory bowel disease and metabolic syndrome. Help your gut by adding fiber and probiotic rich foods like beans, veggies and greek yogurt.

Root Cause of Obesity

Is Eating Less The Solution For Obesity?

As a health coach, I’ve heard so many times from people that they keep getting told to eat less and exercise more if they want to lose weight. So they eat less and exercise more but they still can’t seem to melt that fat away. This is where all the scam diets, supplements and fat burning pills, lotions and potions are being bought by the public in the hope of finding the fastest way to lose weight.

But when that stubborn fat hasn’t been lost, people ask, “Why am I not losing weight?” I’m going to share with you the one surprising ingredient that is making people fat, as well as some tips to help your weight loss efforts.

Weight Gain And Obesity Are Complex Issues

As I’ve been saying for years, weight gain can be more complex than once thought. It’s only just starting to reach the mainstream media but scientists are slowly realizing that weight gain and obesity seems to be more complex than was first thought.

Many medical experts are calling for obesity to be labelled a disease. This in turn results in their solution being of course – drugs and surgery. However, researchers have shown a popular processed food additive could be contributing to the fat people are gaining.

Emulsifiers- One Of The Culprits?

The latest research from Georgia State University believe emulsifiers, which are added to most processed foods disrupt the good bacteria in our gastrointestinal tract, making your body hold on to more fat.

Emulsifiers are used in processed foods to extend their shelf life, make the foods more artificially palatable, and stop oils and water from separating to name a few. They can be found in everything from your store bought salad dressings to frozen desserts, right through to breads, cakes, margarines and peanut butter.

Study Results

The researchers gave mice the same dose of emulsifiers to what an average person would consume through processed foods in their diets. The researchers found that the mice had dramatically altered gut bacteria through the consumption of these emulsifiers.

What the altered gut bacteria led to was inflammatory bowel disease and metabolic syndrome. This included Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These conditions have dramatically increased since processed foods have become more prevalent in the modern day diet.

Around 85% of your immune system is based in your gastrointestinal tract. That’s why you need a good balance of bacteria.  So if ingredients like emulsifiers as well as antibiotics both strip the body of good bacteria, then there is an imbalance. As a result, this not only impacts your health but also your fat burning efforts.

Say NO To Processed Food

If you are trying to lose weight and improve your health then reducing processed foods is a must. You can also help your gut bacteria out by introducing foods with gut friendly bacteria in order to protect our gut.

This can include increasing your fiber intake by eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. These will also give you a good supply of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants and fiber. Also foods such as kidney beans, lima beans, chickpeas, cabbage, bananas, asparagus as well as properly fermented sauerkraut, natural kefir and Greek yoghurts are foods that will help improve your gut bacteria.

So remove harmful processed foods, introduce fresh fruits and vegetables and probiotic rich foods and watch this improve your fat burning efforts.

Garbage article. In same page says "The one reason" and then goes on to say "obesity is a complex issue." Click bait. It is simple; exercise everyday, don't eat added sugars, get off your fat ass, and eat your daily energy requirements.

We mostly do two meals a day and don't eat after a certain hour of night. My energy is fine and my lab work is phenomenal. I'm 52 an no longer on any medications and my traditional medicine doctors are amazed. I feel great, skin and nails are healthy and I've reversed Thyroid, Fibroid and Stress illnesses and complications. #allvegandiet #plentyofwater #activelife I still have improvments to make and I'm not perfect, but we do what is best for us despite all the conflicting research. Be well all.

Greek yogurt can contain emulsifiers and a coloring agent that is well-known to cause inflammation.
