The Gut - Weight Link

Presented by:

Natalie Lamb, NT Dip CNM, mBANT, BA Hons, GAPS


The prevalence of obesity and its associated health problems have increased sharply in the past two decades. Compliance with most calorie-restricting weight loss programs is notoriously poor, particularly over the long-term, with over two thirds of dieters regaining more weight than they lost on their diets.  There are, however, a number of complex contributing factors to the pathophysiology of obesity, not solely related to over consumption and lack of exercise.  Additional factors to consider include the type and quality of food consumed, hormone imbalances, metabolic rate, leptin resistance, insulin resistance, carbohydrate cravings and intake, storage of environmental toxins and food additives in fat, inflammation and last but not least our microbiota balance throughout the body.


In this webinar we will explore:


  • How the gut flora differs in obesity
  • What effects this has on metabolism and eating habits
  • What shapes the Microbiota
  • Could probiotics help
  • Could fibre help
