How to Lose Weight Effectively and Efficiently Through Probiotics
There Is Excess Sugar in Our Foods
More than half of our citizens are overweight in the United States, and it is time to question this fact. I cannot believe that they have done this willingly, so I must look at what the USDA and other government agencies are condoning.
My suspicions were aroused a couple of years ago when I consistently began looking at packaging, and saw the high instance of added sugar. Why do we need sugar added in our diets? Don’t we get enough through dessert and soda? Why is it added to our peanut butter and breakfast cereals? Do you see my point? Look at the overweight children in our society, and you’ll see their favorite foods are the culprits, which many parents are feeding them, not knowing that it is making our children heavier and more prone to diabetes.
Food Additives Are Big Business
As the sugar increases in our lives, so does our weight. Sugars promulgate yeast via our stomach acids. The more sugar that we eat and combine it with flour, the more instances there are of gluten intolerance. The simple equation for this is sugar plus flour equals yeast, and flour equals wheat. So wheat and yeast equals a deadly duo for many people, who then become allergic to it, due to its constant presence in the simplest of foods. More is never better, for an overabundance creates a problem for tolerance. Sugar and flour creates weight gain, which creates craving these basic items. And I haven’t even begun on fried foods!
Sugar and pasta are big business. They cost very little to make, and for the people in those huge conglomerations, we are looking at a simple moneymaker. The same holds true in the liquor business, the huge presence of sugar. Again, more sugar makes you crave it, and sadly the government allows it to happen.
You Are What You Eat
When we eat a balanced diet, our stomach and intestinal bacteria are in synchronization, a harmony. We have energy, stamina, and we feel good. Our minds are healthy, we think well and react quickly to constant stimulus. Remember how you felt when you were growing up? What happened?
Added sugars created an imbalance in our bodies. We don’t want to get up, we don’t feel well, and our bodies are rebelling against us. As the scales tip in a direction that we don’t want them to go, we try harder and harder to lose weight, and then we find that we gain it back and THEN SOME!
What is Happening to Me?
What is wrong with us? Why is this happening to the good people that try so hard to keep themselves healthy and well? It is the stomach acids, enzymes, intestinal and gut bacteria telling your body to have SUGAR. Or have that fried food that you love so much because it tastes so good and that is a comfort food to many.
How do we get away from this? We have to clean up our habits, which means that we must retrain our gut bacteria to go back to the ways that keep it normal. We don’t need all the diet pills, liposuction, and al the other fad diets that we are told that we must spend money to have to make us healthy and happy again.
Probiotics Vs. Weight
Ever hear of probiotics? These are actually natural cultures in probiotic yogurt that you have probably heard about but were afraid to try because you didn’t know what it was. Provided that you don’t have issues with lactose intolerance, I prefer unflavored probiotic yogurt, as I get my calcium, and live and active cultures that help to return the bacteria in my gut to a normal state so that I don’t crave sugars and fats through cooking oils. Believe me, my friends will tell you how much I craved sugar and would eat it constantly in whatever form I could get it.
Since I no longer crave sugar and fried foods, I have lost excess weight, I feel great, I sleep well, and my brain is operating at peak efficiency. However, before you embark on a diet program, go to your doctor and make certain that your body can stand an exercise regimen, too. You’ll still have to exercise in order to tighten yourself up as you begin to lose weight from the sugars, pasta, bread, and so on that your body no longer craves.
Natural Foods Don't Mix with GMOs
I’m not saying that this will definitely work for everyone due to some illnesses that people might have, but it sure has worked for me and a test group that I oversaw. What I’m saying, is that there are alternatives to diet pills and surgery. Give it a try and see if probiotic yogurt in the natural food section works for you. Eat healthy food, take your vitamins, and say ‘no’ to GMO food. Natural food is a lot less expensive than it was ten years ago, and it is all a matter of supply and demand. If you make natural food for a handful of people, it costs more. It costs considerably less if a large amount of people eat it.
Right now, our government doesn’t feel that it is necessary to include the fact that GMOs are used in manufacturing products. Why do you think that could be? What do you think GMO foods are hiding? Maybe you should direct your questions to Monsanto, who made Agent Orange during the Viet Nam War. Our boys in the war handled it barehanded and were told that it wouldn’t hurt them. Many of those veterans had trouble conceiving. The Vietnamese are still trying to get it out of their bodies. There were too many children born with birth defects during that era. Don’t take that chance. Let’s all say ‘no’ to GMO.
Should the Government Regulate GMO Labeling?
