The (gut) bacteria make up of a person's gut who is overweight or obese actually differs from normal or healthy weight controls. There's a connection between endotoxins from gram negative bacteria that lead to leaky gut, which then leads to inflammation. And inflammation contributes to imbalances in your ability to maintain healthy blood sugar and insulin levels. So blood sugar and insulin have a really significant impact on things like how satiated and full you feel between your meals, whether you have cravings for sugar or other foods, and it also has an impact on cortisol - Cortisol is our stress hormone. And when there's too much cortisol around, it can contribute to weight loss resistance.
