When it comes to fighting fat and decreasing estrogen, fibre is your best friend. Low-cal, fibre-packed foods fill you up and prevent overeating.
How Fibre Works
A few years ago, it was the f-word that no one wanted to use. Today, it’s plastered all over packages at the supermarket. (That’s fibre, people, fibre.) Last year, manufacturers introduced more than 1,500 high-fibre, whole-grain products — an increase of 121 percent since 2005. Now we have high-fibre English muffins and even whole-bean chocolate bars.
Studies peg foods rich in fibre to a reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer — and to losing weight without feeling hungry. For instance, researchers at Harvard Medical School found that women who increased their intake of high-fibre or whole-grain foods over a 12-year period were half as likely to become obese as those who decreased their consumption.
