Of course, fiber won’t solve all of your weight-related woes. However, when paired with a well-balanced diet (which, hey—is easier to maintain when you’re eating lots of fiber-rich plant foods), regular physical activity, deep and restful sleep, proper hydration, and stress management, upping your fiber intake can help you reach your healthy weight goals.*
Case in point: In a 2019 study published by the Journal of Nutrition, dietary fiber intake was found to promote weight loss2 and adherence to macronutrient guidelines in a calorie-restricted diet in adults with overweight or obesity.
In a 2017 Nutrients randomized controlled trial in individuals with overweight, fiber supplementation was found to reduce BMI and body weight3, the number of times participants ate per day, and the number of grain foods consumed.* Whether consumed via high-fiber foods or high-quality supplements, dietary fiber can be a valuable tool that helps aid your weight loss journey.*
