Believe it or not, the human body contains more bacteria living inside than individual cells: 100 trillion microorganisms live in our gastrointestinal tract as compared with a "mere" 10 trillion human cells in our body. And one of the best kinds of microorganisms we can have flourishing inside our bodies are the probiotics, the healthy bacteria that live in our intestines or gut. Now, new research from the Stanford University School of Medicine and Stanford Hospital and Clinics suggests probiotics might even enhance weight-loss programs.
I've heard this for a while now, but all the more reason to eat yogurt on a regular basis. I love Yoplait Light Vanilla which has no fruit, less fat and fewer overall calories than many flavored yogurts.

Getting healthy, one step at a time.
