Role of gut microbiome in weight loss

Importance of regular monitoring while dieting and weight loss

If you are on special diet plan such as Keto, Paleo, Low Carb etc, monitoring your biomarkers is very crucial as this type of diets are known to lower thyroid output, throw your hormonal profile off-balance and in-turn causes health conditions such as decreased libido, fertility, sexual function, hair loss, muscle-loss etc. Regular monitoring is important if you are taking supplements.
