New Zealand Fiber and Protein Diet Review
The New Zealand Fiber and Protein diet is based on research that showed the food formula resulted in 8 times more weight loss.
According to Woman's World magazine, women in a New Zealand study were eating 2,000 calories per day and dropping weight by combining fiber and protein.
Te Morenga, the New Zealand scientist from the University of Otago, had volunteers follow a low-fat diet and others a fiber and protein diet. The protein and fiber dieters in the study got 30 percent of their calories from protein and 35 grams of fiber.
The results of the fiber and protein diet were spectacular. The subjects in Te Morenga's study who ate the protein and fiber combo lost 8 pounds for every one pound lost in the low-fat traditional diet group.
I recently tried the Bistro MD diet delivery program. One of the reasons I think Bistro MD results are so great is because their meals are extremely high in fiber and protein. For example, the Bistro MD chicken and lentils meal has 23 grams of fiber and 46 grams of protein. That's extraordinarily high for one meal!
Protein shakes such as Fit Smart combine protein and fiber for fast weight loss results. In fact, it's part of the Fiber 35 diet plan that encourages dieters to consume 35 grams of fiber per day.
Some of the benefits of a high protein diet are the same as the benefits of a high fiber diet: they both fill you up.
According to Women's World magazine, getting 30 percent of your calories from protein is an important key because it triggers fat burn. Resistant starches, such as those found in beans and bananas, also stimulate fat burning.
To try out the protein and fiber diet, I did not have to go to any trouble since I could do the Bistro MD meals for a week to test out the diet.
If you rather do it yourself, simply follow these guidelines for the protein and fiber diet:
No. 1: Include beans and other resistant starches to your diet. Add a banana to your Fit Smart smoothie, for example.
No. 2: Have at least one serving of protein at every meal (at least four a day)
No. 3: Limit fat. When you choose fats, opt for olive oil or peanut or almond butter.
No. 4: Fill up on fiber: Fill your plates with fruits and vegetables. Select the healthier breads such as Ezekiel sprouted grain bread , Ezekiel sprouted grain tortillas or Ezekiel sprouted grain cereal or creamy buckwheat . Buckwheat soba noodles are especially good for weight loss.
Although there is no calorie counting in the New Zealand fiber and protein diet, it's always a good idea to have your metabolism tested and match your eating to the number of calories you burn at rest or your RMR. Eating enough should give you the energy to burn calories through exercise. The fiber and protein diet should help you maintain lean muscle mass and feel satisfied.
