Studies have shown that fermented foods can lower your blood pressure, decrease your risk for diabetes, provide antioxidant benefits… AND burn more fat.
So we’re going to walk you through exactly how you can use fermented foods to lose weight, starting right now.
The Basics: What Is Fermentation? And Why Eat Fermented Foods?
Before you jump on the bandwagon and start eating all of the fermented foods you can find, let’s discuss what fermentation is.
Fermentation is a process that uses microorganisms to convert carbohydrates to organic acids or alcohol.
In the first type of fermentation, lactose is converted to lactic acid. The second type, alcoholic fermentation, is used to produce wine, beer, and bread.
Fermentation preserves the nutrients and enzymes in the foods being fermented.
Because fermentation is a preservation process, the foods do not spoil and can be safely stored for several weeks.
In addition, fermented foods are rich in beneficial bacteria called probiotics that help the good bacteria in the digestive system.INSIDER SECRETS: What’s REALLY Causing Your Weight Gain, Bloating & Constant Fatigue (If You’re Over 30 You Need to See This)…
Consuming foods containing probiotics enhances the digestion of food and reinforces the good bacteria that already live in your gut.
Proper balance of gut bacteria is important for more than just digestion – 70 to 80 percent of your immune system is based in the gut.
So, a good balance in the gut means keeping your immune system functioning as well.
In fact, a recent study found that certain probiotics, specifically the strains L. plantarum and L. paracasei, can lower the risk of acquiring viral diseases, including the common cold, and can decrease the number of days with symptoms.
How Can Fermented Foods Help You Lose Weight?
In your gut, there are good bacteria and bad bacteria.
The good bacteria help maintain a healthy gut and healthy digestion.
Without enough good bacteria, your body may have difficulty digesting foods or absorbing nutrients from food.
Research has shown that gut bacteria plays an important role in weight loss and maintenance.
According to a recent study, eating fermented foods rich in probiotics, specifically yogurt with the strains Lactobacillus fermentum or Lactobacillus amylovorus, resulted in a 3-4% reduction in total body fat over a 6-week period.
Another study indicated that women taking a probiotic supplement with Lactobacillus rhamnosus lost 50% more weight over a 3-month period than women taking a placebo pill.
So, if you eat fermented foods that are rich in nutrients, enzymes, and probiotics (good bacteria), you are helping maintain a healthy balance in your gut and burn more fat.

5 Popular & Widely Available Fermented Foods That Can Help You Lose Weight
There are many fermented foods and drinks available.
However, not all fermented foods are ideal for weight loss.
For example, beer is a fermented beverage, but you will want to be aware of how many calories you consume from drinking beer. As with many things, moderation is key.
Here are five widely available fermented foods and drinks to consume if you are committed to losing weight and balancing your gut.
Sauerkraut is finely chopped fermented cabbage. Sauerkraut is one of the most popular lacto-fermented raw vegetables, which means it is fermented by lactic acid-producing bacteria.
Kimchi is another lacto-fermented raw vegetable. The most common vegetables in kimchi are napa cabbage and Korean radishes, often spiced with ginger, garlic, scallions, and other seasonings.INSIDER SECRETS: What’s REALLY Causing Your Weight Gain, Bloating & Constant Fatigue (If You’re Over 30 You Need to See This)…
Yogurt may be the most commonly known fermented food. Bacteria known as yogurt cultures are used to ferment milk. As these bacteria produce lactic acid, yogurt gains its characteristic tart flavor. If you are lactose intolerant, yogurts made from non-dairy milks, like soy milk, are also available.
Kombucha is a fermented drink made from black or green tea. Bacteria and yeast ferment the sweetened tea, making it slightly effervescent and alcoholic.
Kefir is a fermented milk drink that combines alcoholic and lactic acid fermentation. While traditionally made with cow’s milk, kefir can also be made with goat’s milk.
Two Rules For Fermented Foods To Lose Weight
There are a few rules to keep in mind when choosing fermented foods.
The weight loss and health benefits of fermented foods are due largely to their natural probiotic content.
So, the first rule is that you must consume fermented foods with living good bacteria, or live cultures.
Some commercially produced fermented foods have been processed or pasteurized, killing the bacteria.
Read the label to make certain that your fermented foods and drinks contain live cultures.
Fermented foods with live cultures will always be in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.
Second, many fermented foods are sold with added sugars.
For example, sweetened yogurt and flavored kefir are very popular.
For the best results, choose unsweetened fermented foods with no added flavoring. If you want to add some extra flavor to your yogurt or kefir, serve it with fresh fruit.SPECIAL: This Scientific Trick Can Reduce Your Belly Fat By 8.5% in Just 12 Weeks…
Want To Experiment With DIY Fermented Foods?
Making your own fermented foods may sound daunting, but it is actually very simple.
Healthy options like lacto-fermented raw vegetables are especially easy.
Most recipes call for little more than vegetables, salt, and other seasonings.
You will also need some equipment to create your own fermented foods — a fermenting crock, fermentation weights, canning jars, lids, and air locks.
You can find these in some stores, or you can buy them online. (Amazon never lets me down!)
You can also find lots of easy DIY fermented food recipes with a quick online search. Here’s one to get you started.
By eating fermented foods regularly, you will help to balance your gut with natural probiotics and lose more weight naturally.

The #1 Difference Between Naturally Thin People & People Who Constantly Struggle To Lose Weight…
So if you’re tired of people telling you that you would lose weight if you would just “eat better” or “work out more”…
(Even though you’ve tried being on super strict diets… and you’ve also tried intense workouts… but that doesn’t seem to have an effect on your weight…)
Or if you’ve believed that you simply can’t avoid weight gain because of a slow metabolism…
That isn’t true!
Scientists have recently discovered that skinny people have something special in their digestive system that may work to keep them skinny…
… and that can allow them to eat just about whatever they want (an extra slice of pizza, bowl of ice cream, and late-night snacks)… without ever potentially storing any of that fat as extra weight.
… while for the rest of us (at least me personally)… if I simply look at a piece of cheese, I’ll gain 5lbs.
(It just doesn’t seem fair, does it?!)
So what’s these “naturally” skinny people’s secret?
