Why you shouldn't Trust Calories/Kilojoules
Most kilojoules or otherwise known as calories are measurements of energy that are used to calculate how much food you are consuming.
They are based on a system of averages that completely ignore the complexity of digestion.
Everyone metabolises food differently, and there is a bigger reason, other than the number of kilojoules you are consuming, why you are not losing weight.
Understanding Your Gut
Data from the Weizmann Institute of Science has confirmed that specific gut bacteria are found more frequently in people who are overweight.
Researchers transplanted these human “fat bacteria” into mice which caused the mice to gain weight, have increased blood sugar, and have higher levels of body fat!
A recent study published in the International Journal of Obesity revealed that a higher diversity of gut bacteria is directly correlated with less weight gain and improved energy metabolism independent of calorie intake and other factors.
Studies have concluded that Moringa regulates weight gain through gut bacteria modulation.
