Gut Health

Gut bacteria can influence calorie extraction from food and metabolism. An imbalance in gut bacteria can cause inflammation, leading to insulin resistance and weight gain. Poor gut health can disrupt hormones such as leptin and ghrelin, which regulate hunger and fullness. Certain gut bacteria can also produce chemicals that affect appetite and food cravings. Improving gut health through a balanced diet, probiotics, and reducing stress can lead to better regulation of hormones and metabolism, leading to better weight management.
resistant

Insulin resistance

When the body becomes resistant to insulin, it produces more insulin to try to lower glucose levels in the blood. High insulin levels can promote the storage of fat, particularly in the abdominal area. Insulin resistance can also contribute to a cycle of overeating, as it can make it harder to regulate hunger and fullness signals. In addition to weight gain, insulin resistance can also increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and other related health problems.
