If you follow a low-carb diet, here’s some good advice from Rogue Nutritionist Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., CNS. In his recent Pilates Style article, “What’s the Healthiest Diet?”, Bowden explained why supplementing with Sunfiber may help make this popular diet plan even healthier. The article appeared in October, 2014.
Low-carb diets are associated with weight loss, improved HDL “good” cholesterol and lower blood pressure. However, Bowden pointed out, “The challenge with low-carb diets has always been how to get enough fiber … Remember that low carb does not mean no carb and most certainly doesn’t mean no vegetables.” On the contrary, he recommended consuming many vegetables often. He also reminded readers about fiber. High-fiber vegetables include avocados, artichokes, broccoli, green beans and Brussels sprouts. “If you’re not getting enough from your food, you may also want to consider a fiber supplement like Sunfiber, which blends beautifully in any shake, has no taste and provides 6 grams of fiber per scoop.” Sunfiber is also 100 percent gluten free.
Sunfiber also has other benefits of interest to many dieters: It assists weight control by providing a healthy satiety effect, promotes the absorption of essential minerals and helps the body combat increased blood glucose levels by lowering the glycemic index of foods.
If keeping your diet natural is also a priority, natural Sunfiber is a good option. Sunfiber starts with a natural material, which is grown in fields that are not treated with chemicals. No preservatives are used or added during manufacturing. Sunfiber is certified Kosher, Halal, is vegetarian (not of any animal origin nor derivative), is non-GMO and all raw materials are kept free from GMO and their derivatives throughout the production process. Sunfiber also qualifies as an organic material.
And if weight loss is your goal, how does “half the calories” sound to you? Sunfiber has 1.9 calories per serving. Most of the other over-the-counter brands have four calories per serving. Okay, it’s not a lot, but anyone who has ever watched the slow rate of “calories burned” on their Fitbit knows how hard working off calories can be.
