HOW DIET MAY DISRUPT GUT MICROBES AND PROMOTE WEIGHT GAIN
A high-fat diet changes the composition of gut microbes in a way that promotes obesity.
Mice fed a high-fat diet had a higher proportion of bacteria that are associated with obesity.
These bacteria were able to extract more energy from food and store it as fat.
The high-fat diet also reduced the diversity of gut microbes, which is associated with better health.
The study suggests that a high-fat diet may disrupt the balance of gut microbes and promote weight gain.
Further research is needed to determine if these findings apply to humans.
