If you’re finding it more difficult to lose weight as you age, you aren’t alone As we age and experience shifts in hormones, it’s normal to gain weight, especially around the belly and back area. Unfortunately, this is also the number one most stubborn area of the body in which to burn fat.

A targeted approach simply doesn’t work for the belly and back — and all of the sit-ups in the world won’t do much if you aren’t implementing other changes. Taking a probiotic is one of those changes that can help.

This is the one probiotic you should be having every morning to get rid of stomach and back fat over 50.


Taking a probiotic supplement that contains the lactobacillus bacteria strain is a smart way to ensure your gut stays balanced and healthy, thanks to its infusion of “good” bacteria.

But supplements are not regulated by the FDA and it’s difficult to tell how much is enough. And the same goes for probiotics in foods. According to Harvard Health Publishing: “… there is no way to know exactly which fermented foods or what quantity is best. Therefore, the general guideline is to just add as many fermented foods to your daily diet as possible.”


One probiotic-rich food that makes an incredible breakfast is yogurt. According to Medical News Daily, there are a number of popular yogurt brands that contain the probiotic lactobacillus acidophilus, which has been shown in studies to help with weight loss and fat burning.

Some of those bands include: Chobani, Yoplait, Fage Greek Yogurt, and Siggi’s skyr.


But not all yogurt types are created equal. When it comes to choosing yogurt for its probiotic benefits, stick with low-fat plain yogurt. Flavored varieties and yogurt with fruit on the bottom can be packed with sugar. And sugar has the opposite effect on your gut: it causes inflammation and can slow down your metabolism.


A good rule of thumbing when making breakfast is to get a balanced mix of protein, healthy fat, and good, unprocessed carbs that you can add to your probiotic-rich yogurt.

This peanut butter yogurt fluff bowl recipe does the trick — it’s delicious and filling. The ingredients you’ll need are:

Plain Greek yogurt

Peanut, almond, or cashew butter

Liquid vanilla stevia
