Walnut Creek, Calif. (PRWEB) June 14, 2005
With the U.S. weight loss market forecast to hit $61 billion by 2008, Nebraska Cultures, Inc. announced that many popular weight loss programs on the market today might be missing an essential component when it comes to responsible weight loss.
In their newly released book entitled ÂCultivate Health from Within: Dr. ShahniÂs Guide to Probiotics,Â researched and authored by Khem Shahani, Ph.D., with a foreword by Frederic Vagnini, M.D., F.A.C.S., it becomes obvious that a critical factor in maintaining your ideal body weight is to make sure that your digestive system is functioning properly. A healthy digestive system increases energy and improves your metabolism, both critical factors in a responsible weight loss program ensuring that weight loss occurs and stays permanent.
Often overlooked, but always obvious, are the conditions of being bloated and gaseous--a sure sign that your digestive system is not Âproperly tuned.Â People often complain that as they diet and exercise they somehow do not seem to be reducing the bulge in the stomach area. Yeast overgrowth may be a major factor in promoting mid-section weight gain, as well as sap energy from your body. Many people complain of uncontrollable cravings for sweets, breads and even alcohol. Overgrowth of Candida causes intense cravings for sugar and starch, which is why many people cannot follow a weight loss diet
The book informs the reader how to take control of yeast overgrowth, and, according to ÂCultivate Health from Within," In modern times, proper balance of friendly bacteria is not an easy feat to accomplish. Diets rich in sugar, cortisone and cortisone-like drugs, birth control pills, immuno-suppressive drugs and antibiotics, have been major culprits in affecting a naturally healthy digestive system" and promote excessive, unwanted yeast growth in the body and unwanted weight gain.
Many people are unaware that they consume antibiotics daily, without a doctor's prescription, in the foods they eat. Antibiotics are routinely used as supplements in animal feed or the treatment of sick livestock. Consequently, humans who eat these types of animal products may be destroying their beneficial bacteria allowing yeasts to proliferate without their knowledge, which compromises proper GI Tract health and promotes undesired weight gain.
A responsible weight loss program should always include the use of the most effective strain of pro-biotics, which can create an environment in which yeasts cannot survive. This timely information is described in great detail in Khem Shahani's book, ÂCultivate Health from Within.Â
Spokesman for the book, Frederic Vagnini, M.D., F.A.C.S. stated, "Khem Shahani's pioneering research and dedication to the understanding of pro-biotics, as stated in the book, will benefit all people, young and old, for decades."
