Fiber’s benefits are countless, and banking on this fact, British Audrey Eyton developed the high fiber F-Plan diet, with the goal of inducing healthy weight loss among individuals.
The F-Plan diet works on a basic principle: to restrict the daily intake of calories, usually 1,500; while consuming well-above the recommended level of fiber. Eyton created the F-Plan diet knowing fiber virtually has zero-calories, take longer to chew and makes the slimmer feel full longer and slows down the speed at which you eat, therefore giving the brain time to register feelings of fullness to minimize hunger pangs.
Sample Menu of the F-Plan Diet
Staples of the diet are complex carbs, whole grains, baked potatoes, legumes, fruits and vegetables.
- Breakfast- fiber filler, freshfruit and fruit mix
- Lunch- 1 orange, 2 slices high bran bread, 2 olives, 1 mediuim-sized tomato, 2 ounces cheddar cheese or a nutty coleslaw
- Dinner- potato, mixed salad, skinless baked chicken
The F-plan diet has a number of beneficial effects to the body and it promotes a healthier digestive system. Though slimmers complain of excessive flatulence for the first few weeks, it is ver effective when followd faithfully and remains a popular diet of choice for health buffs. Increase in water intake is also recommended when trying out the F-Plan eating plan.
