Fiber is the "F" in The F-Factor Program. It is the secret to losing weight without hunger. Fiber is the zero-calorie, non-digestible part of a carbohydrate. The more fiber a food has, the more full you will feel after eating, leading you to consume less throughout the day. In addition, fiber has zero calories -- so you get to fill up without filling out. Most diets focus on what foods to avoid, while The F-Factor Program is about incorporating the right high-fiber foods into your diet.
Fiber adds bulk to food without adding calories, which is why high-fiber foods are great for dieting. It also swells in the stomach, slows digestion, and boosts metabolism, and all this combined to make losing weight healthier and easier. What really gives fiber its miracle status is the way it soaks up and removes fat and calories in the stomach before your body can absorb them. Incredibly, the fiber found in delicious, nutritious, filling carbs does what no other food can – it actually makes fat and calories disappear!
There is more to fiber than its ability to create weight loss without hunger. The F-Factor Program also offers many health benefits, such as lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain forms of cancer. The F-Factor Program is the most simple and delicious way to lose weight, while improving your energy and chances for longevity.
A well-balanced diet should include both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber swells in your stomach, provides bulk to foods, and keeps you feeling full. Insoluble fiber speeds up the passage of materials through the digestive tract. Increasing your intake of foods high in total fiber will provide you with ample amounts of both types.
According to the FDA, Men need 38g of fiber per day, and women need 25-30g of fiber. However, the average American is only consuming 9 to 11 grams of fiber per day. Based on this statistic, reaching your fiber goal might seem daunting. The F-Factor Program makes it easy to not just achieve your daily fiber goals but to surpass them.
The success of The F-Factor Program is based on the understanding of how and why fiber works to help you lose weight and improve your health. Without this understanding, you are less likely to stick with the program and make it a way of life. Once you begin reading The Miracle Carb Diet: Make Calories and Fat Disappear with Fiber!, you will start to look at food in a new light.
We recognize that variety is important when you are following a diet program. On The Miracle Carb Diet we recommend high-fiber crackers, which help satisfy hunger and provide a healthy and good-tasting alternative to bread. In the book we recommend crackers containing at least 5g of fiber and no more than 7g of carbohydrate. A number of cracker products that come close to this specification are acceptable:
