And, honestly, it STILL comes down to "YOU need to eat less". Short of individually tailored micromanagement of your gut, you're not going to ever really change what's in there.
The same could be said of anything though. Your legs work YOU just need to fight through your crippling joint pain. Easy right? When you can't eat "normal" portions because your body is metabolizing the energy differently that everyone around you and you are constantly fighting hunger urges, there is an undeniable psychological weight on your being. Eating less is the right solution but to only half of the problem. The second half is the sticky bit and means either suppressing those urges (the wrong way as these solutions have been around for a long time and tend to kill you) or by addressing how your body metabolizes food (gut biome). One address the symptom and the other addresses the cause.
