How Gut Health Impacts your Metabolism and Weight

Have you been hearing all about gut health and still don’t understand what it’s all about? We teamed up with Katie Lovitt, RD, IFNCP to chat about the in’s and out’s of what your gut really needs.

On todays’ podcast episode, you will learn from GI expert and RD, Katie Lovitt, how gut health and weight are connected.

We will chat about her tested approach for improving both digestive symptoms and metabolism! In this episode:

  • How imbalances in bacteria impact your calorie and starch digestion and calorie absorption
  • How your gut impacts the production of anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acids, and how that impacts your metabolism
  • Why ‘unhealthy’ gut bacteria promote metabolic problems via production of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and metabolic endotoxemia
  • How we address dysbiosis in clinical practice: testing, diet, lifestyle, and supplements
