As far as fats. john meadows consumes high fats, including tons of whole eggs, beef, and butter. Among other tngs. The trick is his butter and beef come fro grass fed cows. He also maintains aeound 8% body fat year round, despite consuming high fat and high cholesterol foods.
Probiotics aren't necessary for digestion. Unless there's some sort of medical condition, the colon does just fine with its own bacterial flora. Claims that yoghurt help digestion are just marketing hype.

As for John Meadows: I didn't see any claim on the thread that fat intake was related to becoming fat. That aside, I'm puzzled as to how eating fats from grass-fed cows, specifically, has any impact at all on his 8% body fat, year-round. How does that work, then? A gram of fat has the same calorific value if it came from a happy healthful cow or one kept in a basement and fed on steroids and cardboard.

If he ate 1500 more calories a day from grass fed cows, he wouldn't maintain 8% bodyfat for long.
