New 2015 Scientific Study Shows Fiber Helps With Weight Loss

Scientific Fiber Weight Loss Study

A study shows Rats fed a fiber supplement while on a high fat and high sugar diet show a much lower weight gain than those who did not eat the fiber.

The University of Clagary did a study where rats were fed fiber supplements while at the same time being on a high sugar and fat diet. The surprise is that they had showed a lot less weight gain than the ones that did not eat the fiber.

Keith Sharkey deputy director of the Cumming School of Medicine's Hotchkiss Brain Institute says That their data shows that a very small dietary change using a prebiotic oligofructose fibre, (which is a soluble fiber like Glucomannan that Skinny Fiber has in it) actually reduced weight gain and could actually help with the long term effect and maintenance to help lower your weight even while being faced with current diet issues, (such as having a sweet tooth).

Now what the real kicker is with this study is that no matter the fact that the rats were eating foods that were extremely high in fats and sugars they actually gained one third less than thoses who where in the control group. It also didn't matter if they had genetics working against them either they still showed a significant difference from those who didn't eat the fiber supplements.

Cluny thinks that because of the fiber that the rats were taking it helped with their microbiota (bacteria) that lives in their guts match those who had a lean muscle mass and also to help some of the hormones that are also in the gut that handle food intake.

The funding for the new study was produced by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and also by the Alberta Innovates Health Solutions. The study was then published in the April edition of the journal, Obesity.
