Here's The Basic Step To Improving Your Fat Loss (it's not your Thyroid)
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CES--Level 1 Certified Precision Nutrition and Certified Personal Trainer
There are a lot of people looking for things that will help them burn fat.
Of course, most turn to diet and exercise as the main course for blasting away the unwanted fat.
However, diet and exercise may only get you so far, which oftentimes leads to people purchasing dangerous over-the-counter weight loss treatments, detox teas, and other weight loss gimmicks.
Do they work?
Oftentimes, they do not work and lead to frustration, disappointment, and depression.
Now, one area that people may not look at is inside their own body—more specifically in their intestines.
You see, there are trillions of bacteria living inside your gut that may influence many different areas of your body…
…including your ability to lose weight!
Gut Bacteria and Weight Loss
There are trillions of bacteria living in your gut.
Most of you know that these tiny little bacteria may boost your immunity, therefore preventing you from getting sick.
However, the same gut bacteria responsible for improving your immunity may also significantly improve your overall weight loss results.
You see, when the right balance of gut bacteria are living in your body, you may find it easier to lose weight or even maintain your current weight.
When your gut bacteria are altered—called dysbiosis—then you may find that it’s easier to become overweight and harder to lose weight.
Now, there are plenty of ways your gut bacteria aid in weight loss. Today, however, you are going to learn three powerful ways in which your gut bacteria may speed up your weight loss.
The first area impacts the production of your thyroid hormone.
You see, thyroid hormone is the main metabolic hormone in your body.
And that means your thyroid hormone plays a larger role on your metabolism than any other hormone your body produces.
So how does your gut bacteria influence your thyroid hormone? Well, when your gut bacteria are altered, they may reduce the amount of thyroid hormone your body produces.
PLUS: They may also reduce your body’s ability to USE the thyroid hormone that is produced!
How does this happen? This occurs due to the bad gut bacteria blocking receptors on your cells for the thyroid hormone, therefore preventing the hormone from binding with your cells and speeding up your metabolism.
