01-16.57 STEP 5: INCREASE YOUR CONSUMPTION OF PROTECTIVE FACTORS: Fiber

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

“STEP 5: INCREASE YOUR CONSUMPTION OF PROTECTIVE FACTORS 

FIBER CAN REDUCE the insulin-stimulating effects of carbohydrates, making it one of the main protective factors against obesity, but the average North American diet falls far short of recommended daily intakes. (For more on fiber as a protective factor, see chapter 16.) Numerous studies and observations have confirmed the weight-lowering effects of dietary fiber. Natural whole foods contain plenty of fiber, which is often removed during processing. Fruits, berries, vegetables, whole grains, flax seeds, chia seeds, beans, popcorn, nuts, oatmeal and pumpkin seeds provide ample fiber.” [1]
