Weight Loss and Fiber

High-fiber diets can prevent heart disease, ease common digestive problems, and help dozens of other health problems including weight loss. The overall highest fiber foods include fruits and vegetables (with the skins left on when possible), beans, and whole grains. Stay away from such refined foods as white flour, cream of wheat, oat flour, cornstarch, and white rice—all of which are low in fiber. When needed you should increase your fiber intake with supplements if you are not getting anough fiber in your regular diet.

Healthy Weight Loss That Lasts

NutrientsObesity is literally one of the biggest problems facing our society today. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of Americans are now obese. Virtually all diet plans tend to be short-term and short-sighted. They may produce the desired short-term results, but they aren’t sustainable over the long run. In fact, the number-one stumbling block facing people who want to lose weight is that they confuse a diet with their diet.

The reason the overwhelming majority of us gain weight back is because low-calorie weight loss diets go against your body’s natural instincts. Calorie-restriction tricks your body into losing weight initially, but this can only go on for so long before your body’s natural survival instincts kick in.
