Q. Does intake of diet rich in fiber will be beneficial for weight reduction? I feel obesity is a hindrance to a happy life and though many weight reduction and slimming techniques are currently available, how can one choose the correct technique. Does intake of diet rich in fiber will be beneficial for weight reduction?

A. Yes, researches indicate that the normal weight adults tend to eat more fiber and fruit than people who are overweight or obese. The difference found was that the normal-weight adults consume about 33 % more dietary fiber and 43 % more complex carbohydrates each day than people who are obese. Thus it is shown that consumption of a balanced diet that includes an adequate amount of fiber from plant foods will surely benefit your health and weight. You must have fiber rich foods if you are obese.
