It never fails: you decide now is the time to lose some weight or change your eating habits and you suddenly start craving sugary, high-calorie food. These cravings are both physiological and psychological, and a lot may have to do with your gut microbe. Neuroscientists have evidence that specific types of gut flora are responsible for helping detect which nutrients are missing in the body and what food is required in order to fulfill the need.
However, sudden cravings for foods like sugar and chocolate may be the result of microbes tricking your mind. Try out some of these tips to keep your gut health, satisfied, and away from “false alarms” for unhealthy foods.
Your gut is the gateway to your health. Feed it properly and it will take care of you!
