When the Wheat Belly lifestyle, especially the complete program as Wheat Belly Total Health or Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, are followed, the majority of people experience weight loss, often dramatic.
Is there any additional weight loss advantage to adding our Lactobacillus reuteri yogurt? I believe there is.
This is because L. reuteri:
- Has been shown in experimental models to prevent weight gain from unhealthy foods—meaning that backpedaling on weight loss is less likely to occur.
- Boosts hypothalamic release of oxytocin that reduces appetite even further, the so-called anorexigenic effect, adding to the appetite reduction that comes from wheat/grain elimination and unrestricted fat intake.
- Can make intermittent fasting easier—Even if you stop consuming yogurt in order to fast, the appetite suppression effect lasts 3+ days, as L reuteri bacterial counts remain high for several days after your last serving.
If you haven’t already added the L. reuteri yogurt for all its health benefits such as smoother skin and increased dermal collagen, accelerated healing, increased muscle mass and strength, increased libido, etc., consider adding it for the weight-loss advantages.
