Organic Cow's Milk Kefir or Goat's Milk Kefir are excellent choices for probiotics. Drink at least 1/2 C before bed and you'll sleep better as the probiotics work through your system. The Cow Kefir is very tart, but I love it. The Goat Kefir is like pudding but not as tart.

Two weeks in on the new probiotic strain. Weight loss is slow per the scale BUT definitely a reduction in waist size, sugar cravings, and food cravings. Pants are looser. I have my final meal around 6pm and am not hungry typically until the next morning, which was an issue before as I always wanted to snack in the evening. This probiotic formula is fabulous at curbing sugar cravings. Just don't have them! Will keep updating.

How are you recording a 1 - 2 lb weight loss as "weight loss" when one's weight may go up and down by at least that much in the course of a single day without doing anything? There is no way I could record a 2 lb weight loss. I'd have to record a 2 INCH loss - with a tape measure - and even that probably wouldn't be reflected as any loss on a scale, depending on how I lost those inches.

Better But With Side Effects

Only been one week since I found a probiotic formula at Whole Foods specifically for weight loss in the fridge section, but it appears to be working well; 1- 2 lb loss. I was specifically looking for a probiotic combination to test for weight loss, and Solaray was the only one I could find in an extensive section of probiotics at WF. Note: Side effects (bit of stomach pain that passes quickly) if you take it in the middle of the day vs. in the morning on an empty stomach. Def one should drink a lot of water with this product!

If anyone else has had luck using probiotics for weight loss, please write in and let us know which one!

Here are the strains in mine in case anyone is interested:
