TODAY.com: What Is The F-Factor Diet?


Today.com I January 11th, 2018

There are so many diets to choose from: PaleoThe Whole 30vegetarianveganDASH, low-carb. The list goes on and on. This year marks the 10th anniversary of “The F-Factor Diet,” a book registered dietitian Tanya Zuckerbrot wrote after prescribing the same eating plan to her clients for years.

How does it work? The diet focuses on combining lean proteins with high-fiber carbohydrates, which are low in calories and keep you full throughout the day. It’s different from other diets because you don’t have to cut out food groups like carbs, fats or even alcohol. The “F” in “F-Factor” stands for fiber, the non-digestible part of a carbohydrate that adds bulk to food and helps you feel full.
