The Fiber35 Diet
Nature's Weight Loss SecretBook - 2007
Americans used to eat a fiber-rich diet fresh from the fields (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes); today, we eat food from a box; that is, food that has processed the fiber right out of our diets. The result: an epidemic of obesity that causes most of the common diseases of our time. The Fiber35 Diet focuses on 35 grams of fiber per day as the key nutritional measure for losing weight. Fiber packs a four-part weight loss formula: it curbs your appetite, helping you reduce calories; it actually eliminates calories from the food you eat; fiber-rich foods are low-energy density foods; fiber slows down your body's carbohydrate conversion to sugar, which supports blood glucose stability that helps you lose weight. This book also corrects the falsehood that carbs are bad: carbs from fruit, vegetables, and other sources are an important source of nutrition.--From publisher description.
