By Giselle 2 Comments I’ve tried different pills, weight-loss programs and exercise regimens. Kefir is a creamy and tangy yogurt-like smoothie, which is actually fermented milk whose contents include calcium, protein, phosphorous, magnesium and vitamins A, B2, B12, K and D. Probiotics are live and cultured bacteria that help in cleansing the intestinal tract, boosting the immune system and promoting an overall balance of wellness.
While most people think cutting down on dairy can cut weight, a study conducted by the University of Tennessee argues that consuming 3-4 servings of dairy products every day can actually help you lose some pounds.
One, engage yourself in a healthy kefir diet that will not only cut down weight but also promote good health. Two, when making salad, create your own mix by simply purchasing the dry ingredients to make ranch dressing and then use kefir instead of your regular milk. Three, while kefir is indeed a wonder health beverage, you should still always watch how many calories in kefir you are taking in. Four, for the really serious weight watchers or if you wish to take away a significant amount of weight, replace 1 or 2 meals a day with a drink of milk kefir-fruit smoothie. Finally, while the probiotics found in kefir can help you cut down on weight, lower cholesterol levels, cleanse your internal ecosystem and improve bowl movement, losing weight and having a great body is all about over-all discipline. Please advise if milk kefir fermented for 12 to 14 hrs, is slightly sour, has thickened without much yellowish streaks, contains as much or lesser probiotis as that fermented for 24hrs. Yes, if it cultivates in 12 hours then it is just as good as a cultivation that took 24 hours to reach the same state.

Just as with regular yogurt, folks who have trouble with lactose often have no problem digesting kefir. Today I’m going to share one easy and delicious food that you can include in your diet that will really help get your digestive system on the path to better health. Like I said earlier, kefir is like a probiotic so the more you drink it, the more beneficial organisms you’re introducing into your gut.
Place it in a warm spot out of direct sunlight for 12-24 hours to allow the culture process to take place. After 24 hours, strain the kefir through a fine sieve so that your kefir comes through, but your grains stay in the sieve. Place your finished kefir in the refrigerator to store, and use your kefir grains to start the process over again. You can order kefir grains online or you can get them from someone who already makes kefir.
As soon as my kefir grains grow big enough to divide and share, I’ll send out an email to my newsletter list.

I’m still very new to making natural changes for my family and struggling with taking the time to make and eat real healthy foods.
Thank you so much for all the time you give to this blog, I am on it everyday reading your articles and trying to learn. Kefir question…would the probiotics in kefir work as well as the ones in yogurt when one is taking an antibiotic? Kefir is much healthier than your favorite yogurt since yogurt only has one or two strains of probiotics while a regular kefir drink has 10 or more. By the way, it has helped a ton of other people lose weight: a number of cases are well recorded, documented or posted online. You can also just buy kefir grains so you can make your own drink, power drink, diet drink or smoothie at home using your preferred fruit or flavor.
When trying to cut down on pounds using any type of beverage or diet drink, you shouldn’t skip counting your calorie intake and regular exercise.
A 240-g serving should contain only about 12 grams of carb, with 11 grams of protein and 2 grams of fat.
Both have the same health and weight-loss effects but with different tastes, textures and appeal.
If that’s too much, include cheese and a cup of bread for breakfast, vegetables for lunch, fruits for snack, and small portions of boiled fish and vegetables for dinner. Watch what you eat, cut down on alcohol, get enough sleep, avoid getting stressed and get regular exercise. Now there’s an easy way to speed up a sluggish metabolism: Just down kefir, a tangy, drinkable weight loss foods!
The more beneficial organisms you have in your gut, the less harmful ones you have, and the less harmful ones you have the better your digestive system functions and the healthier you are!
The culturing process of kefir causes the lactose in the milk to be converted to lactic acid, but some reports suggest that there’s still anywhere from 20-50% lactose remaining in the finished kefir. If you’re interested, just let me know and I’ll send you enough to get started for free! I know that all of us, especially my 21 mo old daughter need some digestive health makeovers. According to the research, the more dietary calcium there is in your cells, the more fats are burned than stored.
You do not need to consult with your doctor to know how much kefir to drink per day since kefir is an organic healthy drink and not a weight-loss dietary supplement drug.
Purchase the correct type of kefir for your intended purpose, such as to lose weight for example. Put in different kinds of flavors or tastes as you like, such as lemon, pineapple or ginger.

Milk kefir is yogurt-ish while water kefir is like soda (and almost like beer when brewed) since water kefir grains carbonate the water.
For those who are lactose intolerant, but only have a mild reaction, kefir can be an excellent way to still enjoy dairy and get the good health benefits from it as well, but those who have serious reactions to lactose should most likely stay away from it. The only downside to this is that the longer you let your kefir culture, the more sour it will taste.
You can divide the grains and share them or you can start doubling your batches… whatever you prefer.
The more you use it, the more comfortable you’ll become with it, and you’ll be amazed at the power cultured and fermented foods will have on your health!
I’ve read about your supplement possibilities for children, but are very limited budget-wise. Most people can eat it like yogurt, but it’s sour so you may wanna add some vanilla extract and honey to it or blend some fruit with it. Here you'll learn how to take charge of your children's health naturally, get inspiration and encouragement when it comes to natural living, and learn about God's great gift of herbs! My health has since improved tremendously and weight-loss turned out to be just a delightful bonus. This precludes nearly all possible side effects.  Just make sure to buy low-fat or non-fat kefir. You can make healthy water kefir drinks using water kefir grains, which are also called tibicos, California bees (by many people) or Japanese water crystals. She loves the gym, and she can flex & split like a zombie, coz she's a freak like that. This looked like a simple thing to start adding to our diets that might help get us in the right direction. I'm a registered nurse, herbalist, and natural mama, and I wanna share my journey with you! HiiT (Interval Training) cardio + a wee bit of lifting + diet (I still eat, diet means the food intake, not diet = starving) Love the Visual Impact course by the way. It is safe to say, though, that the calorie content is very little to none, or much less than found in milk kefir. The kefir starter culture is what you’d use to grow your own kefir grains and they take a while to get going.
