Real quick note about probiotic supplements …
(I know you have to prepare for the big Duke victory party tonight)

Heather just asked me,

“Do I really need probiotics?”

Yes. I highly recommend you “take” probiotics of some sort.

As I mentioned last week, you’ll do best with a combo of
– fermented foods
– probiotic supplements (to make sure you’re getting enough of certain species), and
– more prebiotic foods in your diet.

Here’s why …

There have been several studies in which some bacteria from the guts of of lean mice were transferred into fat mice …

And the fat mice lost weight.

So, yes, probiotics can help you look better (and even make you happier – more on that in a future issue).
