Imagine eating 12 pounds of food a day — and still staying thin and healthy. That may sound crazy, but it’s exactly what our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate for millennia! And they didn’t have any obesity or chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or dementia.
The key was fiber. Dr. Mark Hyman explains the importance of a high fiber diet you how increasing your daily intake of soluble fiber can help you reduce your appetite, lose weight, balance your blood sugar, and protect you from chronic illness.
Dr. Hyman also discusses the benefits of the “superfiber” gluccomannan also known as konjac root or elephant yam.
Editors Note: To find a gluccomannan supplement simply type “gluccomannan” or ” konjac root” into your favorite search engine (like google.com).
