3 Terrible Foods For Your Gut & Weight Loss Efforts

The body’s gut, or digestive and gastrointestinal tracts, features a microbiome containing trillions of bacteria. Some bacteria supports gut health, while others upsets this essential organ and can cause weight gain, among other adverse effects. To help you make smart food choices with Phentermine 37.5mg, review which foods to avoid whenever possible. 

Processed Meats

“The foods you eat determine the type of bacteria that grow in your gut,” says Chris Damman MD, MA. “Healthy foods that grow healthy bacteria will make factors that grow healthy gut cells. This means less ‘leaky gut,’ less inflammation, and a healthier body overall.”

Some of the worst offenders in terms of gut health are processed meats. 

“Bacon, hot dogs, beef jerky and lunch meats are associated with a higher risk of colon cancer because the natural components and additives get transformed into carcinogens during the cooking process,” says Dr. Damman. “A better option (in moderation) is meat from the butcher, especially white meat or low amounts of grass-fed meat that contain higher amounts of good fats.”

Processed meats are also known for causing weight gain. 

Refined Baked Goods

These processed foods are another example of processed fare to abstain from. 

“Especially those containing high fructose corn syrup should be avoided,” Dr. Damman says. “These foods are missing fibers that are transformed by gut bacteria into molecules that grow healthy colon cells and protect your body from obesity and diabetes. Better options (in moderation) are baked goods that contain whole grains, and that are missing high fructose corn syrup in their ingredient list.”

Sugary Drinks

Such drinks are weight loss and overall health no-no’s. 

“These drinks can grow unhealthy bacteria in your colon and cause diarrhea, as well as diabetes and obesity,” says Dr. Damman. According to a recent 2022 review in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, hyperglycemia, or high blood glucose levels combined with excessive sugar intake can affect the intestinal barrier. An imbalance of gut bacteria can result, which increases risk of weight gain and other ill effects. For more about fast weight loss with Phentermine pills, please contact today.
