Excerpts from The Fiber 35 Diet
When I began writing The Fiber35 Diet, my goal was simple: to help as many people as possible achieve their weight loss goals using the power of this remarkable nutrient. Although this sounds simple, you may be surprised to discover that the majority of Americans consume less than half the recommended amount of 35 grams of fiber a day. Too many processed foods and refined sugars in our diet have taken the place of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, leaving us vulnerable to weight gain and poor health.
Don’t beat yourself up, however, because you know you’ve been eating poorly and sugar has gotten a hold on you; the availability of processed foods and refined sugars is at record levels. It takes a conscious effort to seek out nutrient-rich superfoods that will charge your metabolism and assist in your weight loss efforts.
And I’m going to point you in the right direction by focusing on fiber, which will lead you down a path to superior health that goes beyond reaching your ideal weight. By eating foods that collectively provide 35 grams of fiber per day, you will drop the weight you want to lose and maintain your ideal weight for the rest of your life. And by significantly boosting your daily fiber intake, you will reduce your chances of developing heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and a host of other obesity-related conditions.
