"[The second tip for weight loss is that] we need to keep the insulin down. Insulin is the thing driving the weight gain, Insulin is ultimately the thing that impacts on leptin's ability to signal [the brain], [and] the way to do that is fiber," notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode Extra (8)).
Fiber reduces insulin
Dietary fiber reduces insulin response of carbohydrates
“If you eat your carbohydrate with fiber, you will lessen the insulin response.”
“Your insulin won’t go up as high because your blood sugar won’t go up as high.”
“How do you do that?”
Only eat solid foods with at least 3 grams of dietary fiber
“You look at the side of the package, and where it says dietary fiber…”
“If it is a solid [food], you want 3 grams of dietary fiber or greater [per serving].”
