Lacto-fermented soda for wt. loss?
Winter boredom got me investigating fermented foods, as in homemade. We all know about saurkraut. I tried my hand at making homemade lacto-fermented ginger ale. Now it seems to use a fair amount of sugar but the bacteria changes it. One makes a base amount, lets it rest for a few days then goes to the second stage. Lots of directions on yourtube. I find the ginger ale filling. This morning I drank about 2-3 ounces about 10 am, went out for lunch and could barely eat half of what I usually can. Again I had some later this after noon along witha couple of cookies and guess who doesn't have room for supper? I've tried to find out if it affects other people like me and so far no response. I'm not trying to lose weight but if this keeps up I will be. I feel like I've eaten a big meal.
