Publisher's Summary

Today, we Americans mostly 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.Unlike low-carb, high protein, and low-fat diet plans, The Fiber35 Diet focuses on the magic of 35 grams of fiber per day as the key nutritional measure for losing weight. 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 from fruit, vegetables, and other sources are an important source of nutrition.The Fiber35 Diet provides a weight-loss solution that will help listeners shed pounds. And it's 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 begun to pay more attention to it.Fiber35 presents a four-part weight-loss formula, incorporating the following facts:1. Fiber curbs the appetite, helping to reduce calorie consumption.
2. Fiber actually eliminates calories from food.
3. Fiber-rich foods are low energy-density foods.
4. Fiber slows down the body's conversion of carbohydrates to sugar, which supports blood glucose stability and in turn assists in weight loss.

Ever eat a pine tree?

This book contains many insights and some new information. I went so far as to order some of the related products. She sounded okay when I saw her on PBS but the author's voice became increasingly annoying as I listened. I couldn't finish it. A different narrator would have made all the difference.
