Tustin Chiropractor Discusses Foods with Zero Calories, That Can Boost Metabolism!
I know it sounds too good to be true, I agree, it does.
A food that has zero net calories can help you burn more calories, how can that be?
There are foods called resistant starches (RS for short). They resist being broken down and absorbed by the body. In other words…you can’t digest them.
These same RS can be ‘digested’ by certain bacteria in our gut. In fact, RS are good food for these bacteria.
The byproducts of our bacteria eating RS are substances that are very good for our body and our helpful microorganisms. They improve and stimulate many different systems.
Studies have shown that they even help with weight loss.
By feeding your good bacteria with resistant starches, you can improve your health and your metabolism!
One RS that you can buy at stores or Amazon right now is Miracle Noodles. (They are also known as Shirataki noodles or glucomannon noodles.)
A little warning for those of you that think if a little is good then a lot is way better.
Some people out there have imbalance in their gut bacteria. They can have too much in the wrong place. They can have too many bad guys compared to good guys, etc…
In these cases, eating too much RS can cause symptoms of bloating and short term digestive discomfort.
Build up gradually with your serving size and frequency of eating RS.
There are more RS besides miracle noodles.
There is also way more to the story of the bacteria that reside in your digestive system.
