From the Inside Flap
Probiotics is a new buzzword emerging from the world of natural health and now making its way into the mainstream. The word itself literally means "for life," and refers to the friendly bacteria that live in the human body which, as you will learn in The Yogurt Diet, are absolutely necessary not only for ideal weight, but also for optimal health.
All too often, people unknowingly reverse the populations of the all-important probiotic bacteria with treacherous organisms that not only cause obesity, but also a wide variety of illness and disease. This bacterial reversal is caused by a variety of conditions that many people feel cannot harm them - including the use of antibiotics, processed foods, over-consumption of sugar, stress and lack of sleep, among others.
Some of the illnesses that can be caused by a bacterial imbalance in the GI tract include obesity, diabetes, irritable bowl syndrome (IBS), colon cancer, stomach ulcers, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, arthritis, attention deficit disorder (ADD), acid reflux, and many more. Nearly all of them, however, can become diseases of the past when we make probiotic yogurt a regular staple in our diets and keep the proper balance of friendly bacteria in the gut. It's as uncomplicated as that and The Yogurt Diet will tell you in no uncertain terms just how and why this can work.
In this book you will find the answers you've been seeking for so long. The Yogurt Diet will forever change the way you eat and feel, and give you a new and surprisingly easy way to safeguard your health for many years to come.
