|Advisor:||Tremblay, Angelo; Drapeau, Vicky|
|Abstract:||The increase in the prevalence of obesity over the last three decades has fostered the development of research to better understand the effects of a modern lifestyle on energy balance, body composition and metabolic health. For a few years now, the intestinal microbiota has been one of the determinants of obesity because it has an impact on energy balance in humans. Probiotics and prebiotics are known to have beneficial effects on health by improving, among other things, the intestinal microbial balance. Recent studies suggest that probiotics and prebiotics can improve energy balance in humans by modulating the intestinal microbiota. So far, some groups of researchers have studied the impact of certain strains of probiotics on body weight and metabolic variables. This thesis aims to present the innovative results of a study that evaluated the impact of a formulation of Lactobacillus rhamnosus CGMCC1.3724 (LPR) on weight loss and weight maintenance in obese men and women. Several other variables of interest will also be presented in this thesis.|
