Brand new controlled trial shows fermented milk with the L.Gasseri proboitic strain increases fecal fat excretion more than fermented milk without L.Gasseri. 
See it here-> http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4391304/

This is the first experimental study on humans looking at L.Gasseri specifically, and it supports what has been observed many times over in animal studies.

I wrote that L.Gasseri appears to be the standout in my previous review of probiotics and weight loss, http://www.dietvsdisease.org/probiotics-and-weight-loss-review/, so will add this new study to it now.

A 44-Point Checklist for Starting a Blog (and an Expert-Only Bonus)

I get a lot of emails from new bloggers who are a little bit lost about the process involved with starting a new blog. Sometimes they aren't sure what platform to use, other times they are wondering what plugins they need to install.

I wrote down a 44-point checklist that goes over the main steps that I follow when I'm starting a new blog. Not a lot of details, just broad strokes with some more research materials attached.

Here it is >> http://www.blogtyrant.com/checklist-for-starting-a-blog/

I've also put together an advanced blogging checklist for professional bloggers who want to make sure that their blog is progressing in the right direction.

I'd be really keen to know if you think I've missed anything important. Please leave a comment and let me know, and if you like it I'd really appreciate a share. :-)

Would love some feedback on my slideshow everybody... what work, what doesn't :)
Eating for two does not mean you need to eat twice as much, but it does mean you need be twice as careful. Research indicates certain foods can be harmful when pregnant... Some of which are very common and popular. See the full article and references at http://www.dietvsdisease.org/what-cant-you-eat-when-pregnant-6-foods-to-avoid/

Persistence is the key,  you gotta hang in there. That's what I tell myself anyways !
 
Just something I try to remind myself when I'm feeling a lack of motivation.

Gut health goes way beyond just digestion. Compelling evidence points to gut health being the main determinant of fat gain and all sorts of chronic metabolic disease.

http://authoritynutrition.com/does-all-disease-begin-in-the-gut/
Impaired gut health may cause unwanted substances to "leak" into the bloodstream. This causes inflammation, which may be driving chronic metabolic disease.
