Looking to hit the beach this summer? I know I am. And I have just a couple of months to get swimsuit ready and so do you. Meet the new Hollywood A-list diet.
The American Dietetic Association recommends that women get 25 to 35 grams of fiber a day and men need up to 38. The average American only gets 8-11 grams of fiber a day.
*Adding fiber can result in losing 10 lbs in a year.
A recent study showed that women who doubled their fiber intake to 12 to 24 grams of fiber a day reduced their caloric absorption by up to 100 calories a day.
So our weight loss answer just might be The F-Factor. The F-factor diet says you can lose weight without cutting-out wine, cheese or even going out to breakfast, lunch or dinner. And don’t worry, The F-Factor diet also accounts for the major food groups.
“Unlike other diets where the focus is what you are cutting out (fats, sugars and carbohydrates), the focus is what you are adding in. You will be adding in high fiber foods because they fill you up, so you can lose weight without hunger,” says Creator Tonya Zuckerbrot.
