Overview

Today, Americans eat processed foods from the supermarket, or foods from fast food restaurants we drive by on the way home. We used to eat a fiber-rich diet fresh from the fields (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes), we now eat food from a box; that is, processed food that has processed the fiber right out of our diets. The result: an epidemic of obesity that causes most of the common diseases of our time.

The Fiber35 Diet focuses on the magic of 35 grams of fiber per day as the key nutritional measure for losing weight. This is unlike low-carb, high protein, and low-fat diet plans. This diet is based on the only scientifically irrefutable way that is clinically proven to reduce weight—Caloric Restriction. Most important, this program corrects one of the dangerous nutritional falsehoods that most Americans now believe—that carbs are bad. Carbs are an important source of nutrition for us—coming from fruit, vegetables, and other sources.

The Fiber35 Diet provides a weight loss solution that helps shed pounds and is clinically proven to reduce the risk for all of the contemporary diseases that end life prematurely. Even though much is known about the healthy benefits of fiber, only recently have large food manufacturers, nutrition experts, and the media started paying more attention to it.

Fiber packs a four-part weight loss formula:
1. Fiber curbs the appetite, helping reduce calories
2. Fiber actually eliminates calories from food
3. Fiber-rich foods are low-energy density foods.
4. Fiber slows down the body's carbohydrate conversion to sugar, which supports blood glucose stability that assists in weight loss.

Terrible Narration

  • Book Rating: 2/5

From what I was able to finish, I suppose the content of this book was okay, but I was so distracted by the author's annoying voice that I could not stand to listen to it. She should stick to writing and let someone else do the reading!

The Fiber 35 Diet

  • Book Rating: 3/5

I could not get past the authors slow speech, and monotone, to listen to the information she had to give. I could have adjusted to southern accent if she was not so degrading in the way she spoke. She read the book as if she reading to a 1st grader. I had to stop with out getting through more then one disk.
