I heard about this on the Joan Hamberg show. She was interviewing a canyon ranch doctor. He wasn't selling it. He said it was good for weight loss.

I looked it had studies done. For controling diabeties. So I bought it. Seems like you don't have so many cravings for sugar on it. Cause it stablizes your sugar in blood. You take two to four pills ten minutes before you eat. Sort of expands in your stomach. It is fiber.

It is like a super super fiber expanding thing. You must drink an glass of water with it.

Anyway you can research it your self in google. Fiber PGX studies.

Feona, where did you buy it? You'll have to let me know how it works for you. I'm pretty interested after reading info. By the way, where in NY are you? I'm by Albany.

I doubt it will work, but it sounded good. I got it on the internet. They

I will report back in a couple of weeks/months. I wanted to take fiber anyway.

The product name is wellbetx or slimstyles. I think wellbetx is what they tested the subjects on. Sort of makes sence if you get a diabetics sugar under control they lose weight.

IMHO, fiber is very important in the diet.

Most raw, natural foods (that contain sugar) have a good amount of fiber.

It all gets down to how long it takes to digest your food...

Starches and sweets (along with fruit juices), very low in fiber, begin being digested in your mouth, being broken down into glucose (and entering your blood stream) almost as soon as they reach your stomach.

Many fruits (being higher in fiber) take longer for the digestive juices to break down (and extract the sugar) meaning the glucose enters your blood stream at a slower pace.

High fiber vegetables (containing starch) don't break down until they have entered your small intestine and take several hours.

The amount of time that it takes for a food to raise your blood glucose is called it's "Glycemic Index" and depends on the amount of fiber it contains:

Since fiber is non-digestable (and takes up space in your stomach) you feel fuller and end up eating less.

I drink psyllium fiber in water with my meals (or take it in pill form).

Fiber has also been shown to reduce your chances of developing heart disease, lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of developing diabetes:

Good stuff!
