    Normal weight people lost an average of 2 pounds in one month and obese people lost an average of 4.4 pounds while eating a diet containing fiber-rich Goami No. 2 rice compared to when they were fed the same diet but with standard white rice according to a study from Korea. Blood Lipids

    Decreased blood lipids

    While eating the Goami rice, there was a decrease in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.



    Conclusion: Goami rice may help to reduce weight

    “These results indicate that fiber-rich Goami No. 2 rice has beneficial effects and may be therapeutically useful for obese subjects,” the researchers concluded.



    Comments: Other studies show that high fiber diets lower body weight

    A number of studies have found that higher fiber diets are associated with lower body weight.

    One study found that lean people eat 50 percent more fiber than obese people.

    Another study found that those eating the most fiber weighed 4-9 pounds less than those eating the least, and, most interestingly, found that a low intake of dietary fiber was more predictive of cardiovascular disease than was saturated fat intake.

    Practical advice: Eat fiber-rich foods. If not, take a fiber supplement. I prefer one-half Tablespoon of psyllium plus one-half Tablespoon of guar gum per day—which is about 5 grams (5,000 mg) of each.
