Small studies begin to suggest that probiotics may help further weight loss attempts. In previous studies, patients have included probiotics after their bariatric surgery and have lost more weight than patients who did not consume probiotics.
In this most recent study, patients who did not even try to diet were given probiotics or a placebo (fake pill). At the end of the study, patients who took probiotic supplements lost 4.6% abdominal organ belly fat, while patients who took placebo saw no improvements in belly fat.
