One aspect of weight loss many people don’t consider is digestion. Eating healthy food is only the start – it still needs to be broken down into nutrients to feed your body. 

“Probiotics are live micro-organisms that have significant health benefits – particularly for your gut and brain,” explains Damo. “They are found in fermented foods and supplements. There is some research that suggests probiotics can help with weight loss as gut bacteria plays a major role in weight regulation.”

Try including tasty probiotic-rich foods in your daily diet, such as kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, and miso.
