Still counting calories? Or trying different fad diets to lose weight? In this episode, Jen and Alex examine the research around diets, weight loss and calorie counting, and learn why some people often experience the “yo-yo effect” where they lose weight dieting and gain it back quickly. So how can you lose weight? Maybe in a few years we’ll have a miracle probiotic pill that will help us, but until then, Alex and Jen share some practical tips based on the science and their own experience.
