Probiotic foods along with prebiotics maintains gastro-intestinal health
Dietitian Manuel Villacorta is passionate about probiotic foods, but is very concerned about visceral fat that is stored in the gut. "This belly fat is probably the worst fat you can have in excess. By reducing visceral fat you reduce inflammation and you reduce many chronic diseases.”
But in order for probiotics to thrive and multiply, they need a steady diet of good, fibrous foods. Avocados, oats, asparagus, onions and mangoes are all great prebiotic examples.
In his book "Flat Belly 365" Villacorta reveals a day that is packed with both pre- and probiotics: a papaya kefir smoothie for breakfast, prunes and Parmesan or apples and almonds for a snack, a lunch of mango avocado salad with yogurt dressing and a walnut pesto quinoa bowl for dinner.
According to abc7.com, he has tested this program on hundreds of clients whose average weight loss is 2 to 3 kgs weekly. While you don't have to eat a lot, the suggestion is to keep both pre- and probiotic foods in your day.
