Fool-Proof Weight Loss: Answer Is in Your Gut
The trillions of bacteria in your gut, known as your microbiome, play a critical role in maintaining health and warding off disease. 

If your gut ecology is optimal, your overall health and wellness will follow, including weight loss.

You need to feed your bacteria in order to be healthy and proliferate. Foods with certain fibers are helpful in balancing your gut, such as jicama, artichokes, leeks, radishes, beans and some grains. Fermented foods also play an important role. 

It's equally essential to avoid sugar and processed foods.

Listen in as Dr. Raphael Kellman joins host Lisa Davis to explain how the microbiome relates to weight loss.
