This Is Absolutely The Worst Food For Gut Health, According To Registered Dietitians

If you're trying to improve your gut fitness, the first step is to take inventory of your diet. 

What you consume can affect the number of good and bad bacteria within your gut microbiome

and when it's out of balance, it can cause a whole host of health problems.

To find out more about how diet affects the gut and the top foods to avoid, we asked the pros for their thoughts. 

The foods a person eats at a time affect their gut microbiome, which is responsible for a wide variety of features

 including immunity, digestion, and metabolism, among many other processes.

An imbalance of healthy gut microbes can also contribute to negative metabolism, negative digestion, and weight gain

among other negative effects on fitness, explains Mary Wirtz, MS, RDN, CSSD, representative dietitian for Mom Loves Pleasure.
