The secret to losing weight is not in the calories, but in bacteria, says researcher
In The Diet Myth "The Real Science Behind What We Eat", Spector argues that the secret of weight loss lies in investing in foods that contribute to the increase of the intestinal microbiota, the "good" bacteria present in our digestive system.
In fact, a number of studies have already noted that healthy intestinal microbiota contributes to weight loss. However, to say that in front of this the calories should not be considered is risky, since there are no studies that confirm the question.
To get this increase, the specialist proposes some unusual measures and whose benefits have not been scientifically proven. In fact, what is known so far is that they are harmful to health. They are:
Eating fatty cheeses as they help to improve health
- Avoiding so-called "low fat" foods, as they contribute to weight gain
- Skip breakfast may be a healthy strategy for some people
- Beer helps in weight loss because it improves the growth of the intestinal microbiota.
- However, Spector defends the adoption of some habits that are admittedly healthy and, according to the author, contribute to the increase of intestinal microbiota. They are:
Vary the types of food consumed
- Eat bitter chocolate
- Invest in oil and oilseed
- A diet rich in "fast-foods" it impairs the intestinal microbiota.

There is a large distribution of oils and fats in the animal and plant kingdom. However, the current concern has been regarding the proportion of consumption between the determined fats of omega 6 and omega 3 due to their imbalance in modern food. Food before industrialization contained proportions of omega-6 and omega-3 from 1: 1 to 2: 1 - these values are appropriate for human health, since the balance between these two types of "fats" confers a protective metabolic effect on the body.
