    Not clear to me how I find sources for these specific gut bacteria, like prevotella. Stores here do sell probiotics, but mainly for digestive disorders. And I doubt I'm gonna be eating the New Nordic Diet. I'll likely be sticking with the Old American Diet, with alterations I'm already making.

    I've read before that gut bacteria can affect weight loss or gain. But there seem to be so many variables it's discouraging, requiring the help of a physician and nutritionist. And having to provide stool samples loses me right there. icon_razz.gif

    Hym, not sure if this really holds much weight. However, I do believe that probiotics provide us with tremendous health benefits. I'd love to learn more than what was in that article.
