It's hard to imagine that in an age when we eat almost twice as much meat, dairy and sugar as the average person, that people aren't consuming more protein, calcium, and vitamin D than their counterparts.But this isn't because of any sort of scientific consensus or a single research study.There's a lot of misinformation floating around about zinc and other nutrients.While it may seem like a simple...
Fiber foods are on the upswing since the introduction of the Internet in the early 2000s, and some researchers believe it is due in part to the rise in consumer demand for healthier food.
According to a study by researchers at the University of New South Wales and the University.
In a survey of nearly 2,000 Australians aged between 20 and 65, more than half of respondents said they had bought some type of fiber-rich food, with some saying they have bought at least three times the recommended amount of fiber for their weight loss diet.
Researchers found that, on average, consumers who purchased at least one type of diet-related fiber item were losing about 3 kilograms (7.4 pounds) per year compared to those who did not buy the item.
The study found that among people who had eaten at least six meals of fruit and vegetables, consumers were losing 3 kilograms per year in the study compared to a 3.6 kg (7 pound) weight loss loss for those who had not eaten.
The study authors say that fiber may be key to the success of the diet-induced weight loss trend.
“It is likely that the increased availability of high-quality, affordable, high-nutrient foods and the increased consumption of healthy foods is a key factor in the success rate of the weight-loss trend,” they wrote in the paper.
“In fact, there are some compelling research links between the availability of dietary fiber and weight loss, as well as the effectiveness of various dietary supplements and lifestyle modifications, such as dieting, exercise, and dieting-related supplements.”
