 Higher Fiber Prevents Weight Gain and Abdominal Fat Gain
A large European study1 followed the diets of 89,432 participants for 6 years. It found that those with 10 grams higher of fiber intake per day weighed less and had smaller waistlines.

This study is an excellent reminder of the importance of higher fiber intake, especially if you are trying to manage your weight. I have explained this subject in great depth in a previous article, Fiber, Leptin, and Weight Loss.
