Scientists have found out that the effectiveness of a diet depends on the composition of intestinal bacteria. If the intestinal microflora is not "ready" for a diet, then a person will not lose weight even with a sharp decrease in calories consumed. Based on the data obtained, scientists suggested that to increase the effectiveness of the diet, you need not only to change the composition of consumed foods and the number of calories in food, but also to correct the microflora of the thinning person. Further research will help to understand which bacterial taxa should be included in probiotics to accelerate the recovery of people who are overweight
