Interesting study!!

Sunday, July 31, 2011

The study, published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, found that adults with a healthy BMI eat 33 percent more dietary fiber and 43 percent more complex carbohydrates each day than people who are obese. So much for low-carb diets! Fiber fills you up and can keep you from feeling hungry longer. It also has zero calories. By adding an extra 14 grams of fiber to your daily diet, you can reduce your calorie intake by 10 percent. That equals more than four pounds of weight loss in 17 weeks.

Received this from a Cleveland Clinic newsletter I signed up for~ thought it was interesting!!
