Trying to lose weight?

Tim Spector, a professor at King's College London, has unusual advice for those who are trying to lose weight: keep eating cheese and chocolate and drinking wine. The reason? All three are good at promoting healthy gut bacteria and the more varieties of these beneficial microbes we have in our bodies, the healthier we are. By contrast, fatty, sugary and highly processed junk food can wipe out our stomach flora and expose us to health problems like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and inflammatory bowel problems.
