Today I’ve just begun to scratch the surface of the complex relationship between ourselves and our gut bacteria. We now are beginning to realize that of bacteria may play a role in our ability to maintain our weight. First I discuss an article that can be found here.
There is also an article inthe Guardian that raises the question of whether our “memory” of how much we way might be controlled by 2 separate groups of bacteria.
The Huffington Post recently published in article by Dr. Mark Hyman who believes that which bacteria grow more than others may be determined by omega-3 fatty acids versus omega 6 fatty acids. His recommendation for a Mediterranean diet supports his theory, as do many other scientific journals.
