In a word, fructose. Fructose signals our bodies to pack on stores for the winter. Fructose is available in large amounts only at the end of summer, when ripe fruits are abundant. So we pack on the fat to be able to survive the lean times. (more)

I'm huge fan of their probiotics, but they don't have lacto strains in them. I wasn't sure if there needs to be lacto strains for veggies and if that has to do more with taste than effectiveness in fermentation.

The veggies should have lactic acid bacteria already on their surface. Add some brine and you're gtg. I have two of the 1li Pickl-it jars. They work great. (more)

How do obese Americans become that way eating a "healthy" low fat diet. Grains, PUFAS, sugar and repeat. You don't need to overeat to become obese if you're predisposed to insulin resistance through genetics and environmental toxins.

Google FODMAPS. Sounds like you are intolerant, like me. And fiber is overrated. Make sure you are sufficient in Magnesium to avoid constipation.
