News flash: Fruit and fiber are healthy

By Michael Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

It seems like scientific studies about weight loss—especially the ones that make it into mainstream news—are mostly just a complicated way of confirming what most people already know. Here’s the latest:

The study found, not surprisingly, that normal-weight people eat significantly more fruit and fiber than overweight people, and that the overweight consume more fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.

While all of this is obvious to anyone who’s tried a diet plan or two, it suggests that even non-dieters like me could benefit by adding fruit and fiber to their diets. Low-carb dieters take note: the study also found that normal-weight people consumed 43% more complex carbohydrates (starches and grains) than their overweight counterparts.
