|On her show, Oprah Winfrey was talking to Dr. Oz about
high fiber foods for healthy eating and natural weight loss. One of the more fascinating elements
of the program was when the Doctor described an experiment where a group of people ate 11 pounds of
fiber rich foods in the form of raw fruits and vegetables for 12 days. The results surprised
everyone, including the doctor, as cholesterol levels were reduced 25%, blood pressure fell 10%,
and each participant lost about 10 pounds.
Sunbars provide natural fiber
Dr. Oz, as seen on Oprah, says the positive effects of getting enough
high fiber foods happen "almost
immediately." The fiber moves things through your system faster. He adds, "Bile,
when it gets absorbed through the bowel, turns into cholesterol. So when you take a lot of
fiber in your diet, you suck the bile out of you, and your cholesterol drops automatically.
It also gets rid of sugar, which helps the diabetics. And it's a great tool if you want to
lose weight because it makes you feel full." That is why weight control and natural
weight loss are almost always easier with plenty of fiber in your diet.
Personally, I experienced the power of high fiber foods for natural weight loss when I lost 30
pounds in one month simply by changing to more of a plant based diet. I made that change easily
with help from specially made,concentrated fiber rich
Also, by adding some natural health
drinks to wash down those high fiber foods, I received even
more benefits. Fats and toxins were flushed out a rapid pace with no discomfort or loss of
energy. In fact, I developed more energy and better digestion than ever
What are some good high fiber foods for natural weight lossand weight
Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious Pink
Lady, Granny Smith and McIntosh apples each provide 5 grams of fiber.
Black beans are fiber rich foods with as
much as 7g of fiber per 1/4 cup of dry beans. 1/4 cup of Pinto Beans rings up a hefty 12g of fiber
per serving and Garbanzo Beans are the tops with 9g of fiber per 1/4 cup serving. Beans are a great
tool for natural weight loss and easy weight control.
3. Whole grains
A bowl of shredded wheat, a piece of
toast with multi grain bread, or an all bran muffin are wholesome high fiber foods. Each one can
give you 3-5g of fiber or more, and they are easy to prepare.
Get 3g of soluble fiber in a creamy, cold, delicious chocolate or strawberry
shake. This is healthy fast food that makes it easy to prepare and consume soluble fiber.
5. Natural High Fiber Food Bars
A snack bar should give you fiber. If it doesn't, then it isn't worth the
calories. Also, be careful to get a fiber rich food bar that is easy to digest. Some of the meal
replacement bars have too much protein and others have too many ingredients that are hard to
digest. That is why I prefer specially formulated, concentrated whole food fiber bars that you
can't find in stores.
"When you eat this kind of food, you're sending a very clear message to your brain," Dr. Oz
says. "You're taking calories and nutrients.What we
normally do in America is we give calories to people without nutrition. … The natural colors are
gone, and so your brain sits back there and says, 'Am I still hungry or not?'"
You can eat 11 pounds of fruits and vegetables every day like the people in this experiment as seen
on Oprah or you can add some concentrated, natural high fiber foods to your diet and make it more
convenient to gain the benefits of fiber. Search the Internet to find more unique and innovative
ways for achieving natural weight loss with high fiber foods.
