Prebiotics: Secret Ingredient That Helps Burn Belly Fat March 27 2014
Secret ingredient in LynFit Lean Bars boosts metabolism and helps burn abdominal and belly fat!
Even Dr. OZ agrees that prebiotics are one of the best weight loss trends and LynFit's Lean Bar is the only protein bar that uses prebiotic fiber.
Prebiotics are better than probiotics when it comes to weight loss and burning abdominal fat, according to researchers. The findings, published October 9th in the Journal of Functional Foods, suggest that prebiotic fiber may help prevent intestinal fat absorption and could be an effective weight loss tool.
"Normally we digest all the food and absorb all the calories", said study researcher Peter Jones of the University of Manitoba in Canada. "We think the prebiotic fiber interfered with the absorption of those calories, so that more calories went out the tailpipe and there were fewer calories to pack on abdominal fat."
What's the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?
Probiotics are live bacteria in yogurt, other dairy products and pills. And while probiotics have been shown effective in managing certain gastrointestinal conditions, they do not have the same power when it comes to weight loss that prebiotics do. First, probiotics are delicate. Heat and stomach acid can kill them, rendering them ineffective before they've even been digested. Also, those who don't eat dairy foods for taste or dietary reasons may find ingesting adequate amounts of probiotics difficult, if not impossible. You would need to overeat on yogurt in order to obtain the amount of probiotics needed to experience change.
Prebiotics (lsomalto-oligosaccarudes/inulin) is a specialized plant fiber that beneficially nourishes the good bacteria already in the large bowel or colon. The body itself does not digest these plant fibers; instead, the fibers act as a fertilizer to promote the growth of many of the good bacteria in the gut. These, in turn, provide many digestive and general health benefits. Prebiotics such as oligofructose enriched inulin (found in LynFit Lean Bars) can change a colon makeup from bad to good, which is favorable when you're trying to lose weight and kill cravings. Prebiotics produce many other health benefits, including boosting immunity.
Why is this so important for weight loss?
There are places within the wall of the stomach and small bowel where appetite hormones are made. These hormones then enter the blood stream and signal the brain. The one in the stomach signals hunger and gives us the desire to eat food. When the different hormone in the small bowel reaches the brain it signals fullness or satiety.
I don't know about you but I don't have a "kill switch" when it comes to hunger and I need all the help I can get. That's why I need to eat at least (1) LynFit Lean Bar every day as a preventative measure.
These prebiotic reduce the blood level of the hunger hormone. The prebiotic makes us less hungry and we all need that. The same prebiotics increase the fullness or satiety hormone so we feel full sooner. If you're trying to lose weight and you struggle with cravings the Lean Bar is the perfect snack.
When trying to lose weight you should eat at least (1) Lean Bar every day because they may:
- Favorably change the bacterial makeup of the colon
- Likely reduce the number of calories absorbed through the colon wall
- Decrease the level of the hunger hormones in the blood
- Increase the level of the satiety or fullness hormone in the blood
Prebiotics aid digestion and promote weight loss and an insufficient intake can lead to weight gain and digestive issues. Not to mention, Lean Bars are clean calories that boost metabolism rather than slowing it down. Lean Bars are low in calories, contain 10 grams of prebiotic fiber, extremely low fat and low in sugar.
Rather than wreck your diet like most protein bars will do, Lean Bars can actually cause you to lose weight. I challenge you to check the Lean Bar label against any protein bar out there and I guarantee you can't find a better tasting or cleaner, leaner bar.
That's what makes Lean Bars different from all of the rest of the bars out there. They are the cleanest protein bar, providing 20 grams of high quality complete whey protein, boosting your metabolism rather than slowing it down the way others will. If you're not eating at least (1) Lean Bar every day you're sabotaging (slowing) your weight loss.
While Lean Bars may seem expensive, it's because they are All-Natural, gluten-free, and actually cost less than the fancy coffees we all drink that cause us to gain weight. Lean Bars cost less than the average snack. Here's how they measure up:
- 20 grams of high biological protein
- 10 grams of fiber from a prebiotic source
- 2.5 grams of fat
- 2.5 grams of sugar
- 11 net carbs
Most commercially purchased protein bars are inexpensive because they are made with inexpensive ingredients. LynFit knows how important protein is when it comes to losing weight and boosting your metabolism. That's why we use the same high-grade, high biological value in the Lean Bar. This is critical when losing weight because it helps:
- Kill cravings and satisfies your sweet tooth
- Prevent blood sugar swings
- Protects and preserves lean muscle tissue
- Provides natural energy
- Keeps you feeling fuller longer
- As a meal replacement when you just need to chew (when you cannot make a LynFit Complete Protein Shake)
- As a delicious snack with a cup of tea to avoid the "not-so-healthy" foods
- After your workout to replenish protein and nourish your body
The best part about Lean Bars (besides being the cleanest bar on the market) is that they are portable and need no refrigeration. You should always have one stashed in your purse, gym bag or desk. "A Lean Bar a day keeps the excess pounds away"! Don't leave home without one. Lean Bars stay fresh for months and (if needed) you can refrigerate them so they keep longer. But remember, if you do refrigerate them, they can get very hard so soften them first before eating by keeping it in your pocket close to your skin or any warm place. No more excuses that you didn't have the right food available. That's what Lean Bars are for!
For a warm delicious treat, try warming up pieces of Lean Bar in the microwave for 15-30 seconds (depending on the watts) and enjoy metabolic boosting cookies (don't forget to remove the wrapper). My personal favorite is a Tahitian Vanilla Lean Bar with skinny hot chocolate (made with Complete Protein Shake mix) and 10 minutes of peace and quiet. For more delicious recipes stay tuned for my book release, The Metabolism Solution, due out by April 15th. But don't wait - preorder now on Amazon HERE, and please leave a review.
