How Intestinal Bacteria Can Be Secretly Making You Fat | Straight Facts by Jerry Brainum

Published on Oct 31, 2018
Bodybuilders and fitness advocates need to pay very close attention to every aspect of their body. And while bodybuilders are very disciplined about their diets, their training, and their overall lifestyle in order to build the best physique possible... they can be largely missing out on one particular aspect of the body - the intestines. Known as the intestinal microbiome - the thousands of bacteria that live in your intestines and colon have a large impact on your body and your health.

To be more specific to bodybuilders - an imbalanced intestinal microbiome can lead to gaining more fat despite how much you train. Unfortunately, certain aspects of popular bodybuilding diets can attribute to an imbalance in your intestinal microbiome. That's why Jerry Brainum is setting the record straight so you can make sure you aren't accidentally sabotaging your body. Get the Straight Facts in our episode above!
