Today’s free health presentation is of vital importance for women and men of all ages who want to lose at least 10 pounds of weight quickly, safely and naturally... and most importantly, keep the weight off forever.

The breakthrough weight loss and health facts you’re about to learn will be shared with you by a gentleman who’s acknowledged as a world class expert in Nutrition, Physiology, Biology, that has taught Human Performance at the University of Florida and has dedicated his entire life to the study of fat loss and the human body.

Facts and research supported by the 73 research studies at the bottom of this page.

Hi, it’s John Barban here,

And in today’s short article you’re going to see what leading doctors, scientists and nutritionists now consider to be the one, single element responsible for all Western weight gain and over 170 different diseases.

The same one thing that Rice University Microbiologists estimate to be keeping over 250 million Americans overweight, sick and lethargic right now.

And what Dr. David Perlmutter, author of the NY times Best Seller “Grain Brain”, and top advisor to Television’s Dr. Oz, states in reference to this same element “those of us that deal with this health condition in a clinical setting are witnessing what now seems almost epidemic.”

Plus, you’ll also see what new research shows to be the single worst food for weight gain, along with which vegetables almost all doctors recommend that you must avoid in order to experience long term weight loss.

And not only that, I am extremely excited to share with you today, revolutionary fat burning tips that will dramatically increase your metabolism, fat loss, energy, focus, immune system and overall health.

These are easy to implement tips that will allow you to start enjoying daily cheat foods and even alcohol while still experiencing the fastest, healthiest fat loss of your life without having to count calories, eat tasteless diet foods, or do any cardio whatsoever.

And although you may think you’ve heard or tried it all, when it comes to weight loss I promise you’ve never seen anything like this before... and I guarantee you’re about to be completely amazed!

Just make sure to read this article until the end now and share it with family and friends that it can help today because it will not be available online or free for long.

With that being said, it’s extremely important to make something perfectly clear before we continue:

It’s of utmost importance to me that you can verify that the unusual fat loss tips you’re about to learn, although very surprising, are based on 100% factual, credible, cutting edge science... not opinion.

And that’s why underneath this health article you’ll find referenced every single medical, scientific peer-reviewed and proven research study your tips are based on.

With all of the “misinformation”, marketing hype and confusion out there this day and age, I understand the frustration and skepticism you may rightfully feel towards the weight loss industry.

I personally know those feelings all too well.

You see, although I’ve been able to help transform a countless number good folks all over the world into healthy, fat burning machines via internationally acclaimed nutrition strategies I wasn’t always known or recognized for being a fat loss author...

... and I sure didn’t look like anyone you’d ever want to take fat loss advice from.

In fact, for many years before discovering the strategies you’re going to learn, I suffered greatly from the inability to lose my own health-derailing, unattractive body fat even after trying every single diet, exercise program and weight loss pill...

... and after going so far as starving myself without my fat stores budging, I’ll admit I lived with the inner belief that having a lean, desirable body wasn’t going to be possible no matter how hard I tried.

And if you’ve ever felt like this, you probably know the toll it can take on your self-esteem and your relationships like it did for me.

Fact is, struggling with your weight can leave you feeling angry, frustrated and alone while negatively affecting every aspect of your life...

... and the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry and the money hungry food industry constantly bombarding us with crap just makes things terribly worse and even more confusing.

And that’s why, even though I’ve dedicated my life to the study of fat loss and the human body and have helped hundreds of thousands of real people experience life changing fat loss, I know your trust can’t be given lightly… you deserve to know that the advice you’re following is based on proven facts so that you can avoid continued disappointment.

With that being said, pay close attention to what I’m about to share because it will be the most important part of this article and it will also be the most important fat loss information you ever learn.

New research has proven that there is a single element responsible for the epidemic of Western weight gain, your body’s inability to burn fat, and over 170 different diseases.

Your G.I. tract is home to your immune system and contains
trillions of living bacteria... and believe it or not science has
recently proven that this bacteria is in control of virtually
everything to do with your metabolism and your overall health.

It’s been discovered that virtually everything to do with weight gain and fat loss is directly related
to this single element that the medical community refers to as our “second brain” or our G.I. tract.

Now, everyone has a certain percentage of good bacteria, commonly referred to as probiotic and a percentage bad bacteria, known as pathogenic.

The natural balance of good bacteria to bad bacteria in healthy people with efficient fat burning metabolisms is 85% good to 15% bad.

You know these types of people... they’re the people that can seem to eat anything and always stay lean.

Now, the following fact may be hard to swallow so be ready:

Science has recently discovered that virtually ALL overweight men and women have an excess of pathogenic bacteria and too little probiotic bacteria.

And here’s why that’s very bad news:

For starters, the excess pathogenic bacteria flat out cripples your metabolism.

It quite literally hijacks and destroys your fat burning hormones while sending your fat storing hormones through the roof.

This alone makes it impossible to burn fat and results in even the healthy food you’re eating being turned into the unsightly flab that you’re trying so desperately to get rid of.

And if you’ve ever felt like you’re gaining weight even when you’re eating next to nothing... this is, in all likelihood, the exact reason why.

What’s worse, is that you’re hungrier than you should be and for all of the wrong foods.

The reason why is quite startling...

... you see, with the metabolism slowing, bad bacteria actually reprograms your taste buds and your brain to crave all of the foods that IT needs to multiply.

Yes, you heard that correctly...

... the bad bacteria in your gut is using your body as a restaurant, and is quite literally making you crave the food that it wants and needs. And the more bad bacteria you have, the more cravings you get for the wrong foods...

... foods that are literally feeding your bad bacteria and allowing them to multiply uncontrollably.

Sugar is at the top of this list that your bad bacteria devours and multiplies on. If you’ve ever done that experiment in high school science class where you pour sugar into a petrie dish in order to grow bacteria, that’s exactly what’s happening in your stomach right now.

And unfortunately, multiple studies now prove artificial sweeteners to be even worse than sugar for fueling your bad bacteria and allowing it to terrorize your metabolism and your immune system.

And even with the millions of dollars they have, the massive money hungry food manufacturers will not be able to keep truths like this hidden for much longer...

... truths that help explain why, in the zero calorie, “diet soda” age, the Western world is heavier and sicker than ever.

There are also some other very surprising foods you may think are healthy that are actually causing your fat storing bacteria to flourish as well, even some vegetables that I’ll touch on shortly.

Now as odd is this sounds, the reality is every piece of food you eat feeds either your good bacteria or your bad bacteria before it even has a chance to nourish you.

You’re unknowingly experiencing an inner battle between your good and bad bacteria with each and every meal you consume.

And your nutrition is vital in order to maintain the ideal ratio of good to bad bacteria which is now being recognized as the single most important factor for being able to experience healthy, long term weight loss.

Unfortunately, in the modern Western diet that’s dominated by processed, sugar-laden foods and chemicals that you’re exposed to on a daily basis, a playground has been created for your fat storing, pathogenic bacteria to flourish uncontrollably.

And I can’t forget to mention what is one of the worst obesity causing, pathogenic bacteria multipliers of all:


Study after study proves the rate of obesity to be rising parallel to the use of antibiotics because of this.

Heck, farmers figured this out long ago when they realized they just have pump their livestock full of antibiotics in order to fatten them up like crazy.

These antibiotics fed to livestock then end up finding their way into your G.I. tract allowing your bad bacteria to flourish even more.

And when your fat storing, health derailing gut bacteria is flourishing it’s not just a weight loss nightmare... it also kills your energy, focus and immune system and leaves you feeling sluggish and extremely susceptible to sickness.

As a matter of fact, science has directly linked over 170 different diseases to pathogenic bacteria imbalance.

You see, in addition to struggling with your weight, other telltale signs you’re suffering from this imbalance include, but are not limited to:

  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Indigestion
  • Constipation, I.B.S. or diarrhea
  • Acid reflux
  • Frequent headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Low energy
  • Sugar cravings

And as if suffering from a fat storing metabolism, hunger cravings, a damaged immune system and feeling sick and tired all of the time isn’t bad enough, it gets worse for women…. Much worse.

Dr’s Carolyn Dean and William Crook in their recent book “The Yeast Connection and Women’s Health” hit the nail on the head when referring to pathogenic bacteria in these terms: “The number of women suffering in silence not even knowing what is really wrong - and blaming themselves for failing - is, I believe, literally numbered in the millions. Millions of women who can’t lose weight and have no idea why!”

And as if this isn’t bad enough, science has discovered that if you’re experiencing this bacterial imbalance when you become pregnant it is passed onto your child... resulting in your baby inheriting the same weight gain and health battles that you’re fighting right now, along with being more prone to developmental disorders, unless your imbalance is corrected first.

It’s like the studies that prove when a healthy, lean mouse is injected with pathogenic bacteria from an unhealthy fat mouse it becomes fat and sick in no time.

Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride, a world leading medical authority in gut bacteria research expresses this concern for women best when she says:

"Mothers of my generation who have daughters who are growing up now - now is the time to assess your daughter. See what her gut flora is like. How is she doing before she's ready to conceive or have children? Prepare them for it to avoid the huge amount of grief in the family of having a grandchild with autism, hyperactivity, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or some other disorder."

The truth is, you’ve either been borne into this bacterial imbalance, or you’re a victim of the modern Western environment that causes it.

Either way, your struggle with your weight to this point is certainly not your fault.

You see, your bacterial imbalance is the true reason why you’re suffering with a slow, fat storing metabolism and nothing will work until it’s corrected.

And I am very excited to let you know there is a simple, breakthrough solution to kill off your excess fat storing bacteria while completely resetting your G.I. tract to nature’s intended balance.

A balance dominated by your healthy, fat burning bacteria.

A balance that allows you to experience the fast, fat burning metabolism, energy levels, vitality and health that nature has always intended for you.

Just for a second, try and picture how much leaner your stomach is and how amazing it feels when your body is no longer plagued by the very real fat storing, toxic state that it’s in right now.

Well, I’m going to show you exactly how you can make this your reality today.

It’s time to turn your attention towards what is the only way that’s ever been discovered to successfully destroy your excess pathogenic bacteria while multiplying your fat burning probiotic bacteria.

I’m referring to a breakthrough solution called “Microbolic Rebalancing”.

Microbolic rebalancing consists of unusual, yet extremely effective nutrition strategies that are the key to correcting your bacterial imbalance and creating a healthy, fat burning metabolism and lifelong weight loss.

These are the totally unique strategies that help countless thousands of men and women experience rapid, long term and life changing fat loss when absolutely nothing else works.

Microbolic rebalancing is the cornerstone of what is quite simply the most powerful natural fat burning system I’ve ever seen, designed, or been a part of.

I’d like to introduce you to Flat Belly Forever:

Flat Belly Forever is the first and only weight loss plan proven to deliver a dramatically faster, healthier fat burning metabolism by re-balancing your gut bacteria for long term, enjoyable fat loss without tasteless diet foods or any cardio whatsoever.

Flat Belly Forever will work for you even if you have the absolute worst genetics in the world, a terrible metabolism, a thyroid condition, or even if you think you’ve tried everything… just like it does for all of my most overweight and genetically challenged clients.

Now, before I go any further it’s important to tell you what Flat Belly Forever is not so that you know what you’re about to experience.

Flat Belly Forever is not like any other diet you’ve ever tried that inevitably leaves you with:

  • Diminished energy and fatigue
  • Painful food cravings
  • Poor digestion
  • Frustrating weight loss plateaus
  • And an even slower, fat storing metabolism than when you started
  • Or at best, short term weight loss with massive rebound weight gain to follow

You see… quite simply, all diets fail you in the long run because they do not correct your bacterial imbalance, which is your true problem in the first place.

However, when your bacterial imbalance is corrected, your true fat burning potential is unlocked and your new calorie torching metabolism is unleashed.

Using the Flat Belly Forever strategies you can expect the exact opposite experience of all other diets:

  • No unhealthy food cravings
  • Vastly improved digestion
  • A remarkably faster, healthier fat burning metabolism without plateaus
  • And most importantly, unparalleled weight loss that can last forever.
  • And on top of all of this, your energy, focus, vitality, and immune system soars, fulfilling everything you need to finally be able to claim the life and body you absolutely deserve.

Flat Belly Forever is a super easy to follow 12 week nutrition
system that completely repairs your bacterial imbalance and
creates a dramatically faster, fat burning metabolism.

You’re going to discover things like:

  • Which foods, including certain high fiber vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, and others, that you must eliminate for at least 2 weeks in order to starve off the very bad bacteria that is keeping you fat. Yes, that’s right! Some very well known “health foods” are, in fact, keeping you fat until your bacterial imbalance is corrected (and I’ll show you why)
  • One super simple food preparation trick that literally turns fat storing foods into fat burning foods inside your body
  • Exactly how to use daily cheat foods and even alcohols like wine and (believe it or not) certain beers to boost your metabolism and disintegrate fat storing bacteria
  • Which odd, yet exceptionally special nutrient single handedly turns the tables on your bad bacteria and catapults your body into full fat burning mode
  • Now on top of this, you’ll be shown exactly what foods to eat and when for the next 12 weeks
  • Plus, you’ll also be provided with a custom nutritional software that will give you your exact calorie requirements that you need from these foods to maximize your fat loss

What’s especially amazing with Flat Belly Forever is that hundreds of people report inches vanishing from their problem areas within weeks of starting their program and they have the startling pictures to prove it...

... which is pretty crazy considering they’re experiencing these rapid results while still enjoying daily cheat foods and even alcohol at the perfect times to accelerate and maximize fat loss.

Now look... before I go any further, it’s important for me to be 100% honest and upfront with you.

If you’re looking for that magic weight loss answer, or if you just want this week’s celebrity fad diet, or some gimmick deep down you already know will never work, Flat Belly Forever is not for you.

Flat Belly Forever is only for people that are ready to put down the gimmick answers in order to follow a proven, flavorful step by step system for lifelong weight loss.

So, if you want the real answer to permanent weight loss...

... and if you want to get the beach body you desire without hitting frustrating plateaus or sacrificing your cheat foods or even alcohol to do it, then Flat Belly Forever isn’t just “a system” for you, it’s the only system for you.

Now, you may believe a one-of-a-kind system that delivers all of this and that has taken me hundreds upon hundreds of hours to perfect would be extremely expensive.

And who could blame you, because it really should be considering the countless numbers of good folks it’s transforming so quickly when nothing else has worked.

And of course when my hourly consulting fees are well over $500.00 it’s only natural to think this system might be unaffordable. However, it’s not. I only felt right by making Flat Belly Forever affordable for everyone that needs to lose weight so don’t worry. I’ll get to the price in just a moment.

First, I need to make you aware of something. You’re not just receiving Flat Belly Forever today. Nope.
