According to the head of innovation at Marlow Foods, Dr. Tim Finnigan, “signals are created by the presence of food in the mouth, stomach and digestive tract, these signals then travels between the brain and the gut” he also added that there are some foods that can affect these signals, and these foods can either help us eat less or burn more calories.

Peas and Beans - A Spanish research showed an average weight loss of 5kg from a study that includes 200 overweight people given high soluble fiber diet for 4 months. Peas and beans are excellent source of soluble fibers.

Probiotics – It was discovered by a group of German scientists that most of the fat people have an imbalanced bacteria in their gut, making their calorie usage very economical. Unlike to slim people whose bacteria waste more calories making them absorb less of it.
