In a September 16 2021 Science Focus report, Seattle’s Institute for Systems Biology lead author Dr Christian Diener is quoted saying “your gut microbiome can help or cause resistance to weight loss and this opens up the possibility to try to alter the gut microbiome to impact weight loss.”

Dr. Diener’s assertions are based on a study of 5,000 dieters with a focus of 105 individuals and a control group, collecting blood and stool samples from the participants, and studying their genetic material. The study found that specific gut bacteria in each group were resistant, while others supported weight loss. In the Science Focus article, Dr. Diener concludes that “the gut microbiome is a major player in modulating whether a weight loss intervention will have success or not.”
