CAT | Probiotic Supplements
And we love author and nutritionist Lauren Slayton! Lauren is the founder of New York City-based Foodtrainers™ and her new book, The Little Book of Thin, will make you think twice about diving into the next fad diet by revealing the truth about why most food plans fall short. And guess what? Lauren is as passionate as we are about probiotics—especially when talking about the link between intestinal bacteria and sugar cravings.
In Chapter Five, aptly titled The Witching Hour, Lauren talks about those pesky late afternoon cravings (the sweet ones in particular) and explains that fermented foods can increase the amount of good bacteria in the gut, which actually helps to enhance mood and reduce cravings. She recommends adding more of these foods to the diet, but when supply is short? Check out her advice on page 59:
“Supplements may be a good alternative if you don’t have access to fermented foods or want a backup plan,” says Lauren. “I’m a fan of ReNew Life brand’s Ultimate Flora.” Such a fan, in fact, that she counts ReNew Life probiotics among her Food First-Aid Kit Essentials! (See pages 123 & 124; Lauren also recommends ReNew Life Probiotics for travel-related “Tummy Turbulence.”‡)
Of course, weight loss is about more than just probiotics, but having the right tools is big part of being successful—and those tools can help you overcome the challenges along the way. The key to living thintastically ever after, says Lauren, is planning ahead and being prepared for the daily obstacles that can thwart your weight loss efforts. “If nutrition knowledge equaled weight loss, we would all be thin. We know what to eat until life gets in the way.” So true!
