Obesity is a prevalent health problem all over the world. In the US, approximately 20% of American adults across all states and territories struggle with the disease, subjecting them to increased risk for other medical problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Interestingly, the World Health Organization has repeatedly stated that obesity is preventable.
Many have tried to lose weight and alleviate their health conditions through several diet programs like South Beach Diet and Atkins. While it works for a few dieters, 97% attest that the programs weren’t sustainable and didn’t provide a long-term solution. They ended up regaining everything they lost and then some.
The scientific community’s understanding of obesity and weight loss problems has improved by leaps and bounds. Researchers have discovered a strong correlation between the gut microbiome and human health, including digestion and metabolism. These microorganisms that outnumber human cells by ten to one appear to play a crucial factor in an individual’s body weight. The gut microbiome helps break down and extract energy from food, affects body processes and fat storage, and impacts appetite and food choice.
Meghan See, a qualified personal trainer who weighed 420 lbs, is one of the most popular testimonies of how the gut microbiome can spell the difference between successful and failed weight loss. Like other Americans who struggled with obesity, she subjected herself to the most known diet programs—the South Beach Diet, Slimfast, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, the Dukan Diet, Noom, the Military Diet, and many others. And like most dieters, she’d lose a little weight and bounce right back again, plus more on top.
She was at high risk for diseases. Her physician warned her that her weight was putting a significant strain on her vital organs and was causing poor circulation in her limbs. Meghan also developed sleep apnea which prevented her from getting quality sleep and resulted in constant fatigue. She also suffered from chronic pain and was forced to take painkillers daily. On top of that, her weight had led to arthritis in her back, impeding her mobility and forcing her to move to a new home that didn’t require her to go up and down the stairs. It was evident that her obesity wasn’t just causing problems for her health; it disrupted every facet of her life.
Meghan’s mounting problems because of her obesity prompted her to research other solutions. Eventually, she found her way to a fermented food diet and gained a defining knowledge of the importance of gut bacteria in weight gain and weight loss. In the first four months of the program, she lost 48 lbs and put off 75 lbs after six months. By the 17th month, Meghan had lost a total of 240 lbs by simply adopting the principles she learned about the gut microbiome.
Not only was she able to eliminate all her health issues, but she noticed significant improvements in her mood and energy levels, skin and hair texture, and vision.
In an effort to help others struggling with weight loss, Meghan has decided to share her experiences and knowledge on gut bacteria. This led her to help set up the brand Lean for Good and develop LeanBiome, its flagship product that focuses on redressing the bacterial imbalance in the gut microbiome. LeanBiome is the world’s first formula that combines nine clinically-researched lean bacteria strains with Greenselect Phytosome®, a next-generation and caffeine-free green tea extract formulated with patented absorption-boosting Phytosome technology.
Meghan is living proof that weight loss isn’t about starving oneself. She has proven that with proper knowledge and understanding of the body’s mechanisms, weight loss can be an unconscious and effortless endeavor. Individuals who tap into and restore their body’s natural gut environment can be “naturally lean.”
