F Factor DietF Factor Diet | F-factor diet is designed and promoted by Tanya Zuckerbrot, M.S. R.D. based in New York City and Miami Beach. This diet stresses the importance of inclusion of fiber in all meals.  The theory behind the F-factor diet is that whatever you eat, if you eat enough fiber, you will feel full quickly and you will not over-eat your meal and get your weight under control.

F stands for fiber of course.  According to the author of the book “the F Factor Diet“, fiber, which is the zero-calorie non digestible part of a carbohydrate, is the secret to losing weight without hunger.  Zuckerbrot says on her website “the more fiber a food has, the fuller you will feel after eating, leading you to eat less throughout the day”

Many fad diets emphasize on other macro nutrients like fat in Atkins diet, protein in south beach diet.  This F-factor-diet may be the first to emphasize on the use of fibrous foods.

The 200-plus page book gives out “more than 75 delicious recipes from appetizers through desserts and a complete set of guidelines for those who don’t want to cook – journal pages and helpful hints to keep dieters on track,” the publisher’s review says on about the book.

Still, like other fad diets, this F-factor diet has a set of rules, like a 3-stage program. That is understandable. If a diet is as simple as one phrase “eating more fiber“, then will be no and this “The F Factor Diet” book.  If everyone can follow that program or lengthy advice on how to use this F Factor Diet, good for them.  But if they can’t, they don’t have to worry because many people who have never heard of the F factor diet like the writer are able to maintain a great shape.

However, for those who don’t have much of any idea to prepare and enjoy their meals, this f factor diet is highly recommended. By David Liu
