Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
Obesity currently accounts for an estimated 400,000 deaths annually, costing us nearly $122.9 billion a year in health care-related expenses. In 2004, the US Centers for Disease Control ranked obesity as the number one health threat facing America today.
Health Direct, a nationwide leader in liquid supplement products, has just posted a new article "A New Easier Way to Lose Weight With Fiber" to help combat this. Individuals interested in weight loss as well as decreasing their risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes are encouraged to download this article at http://www.HealthDirectUSA.com/blog
In this article, readers will discover:
- The latest research concerning the role of fiber in weight loss
- How fiber contributes to not only to losing weight, but preventing weight gain
- Why obesity is less common in non-industrialized countries
- The role supplements can play in increasing overall fiber intake
- One simple way to get 12 more grams of fiber a day
The typical American diet is high in animal fats and proteins as well as refined carbohydrates, which means that the fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains high in dietary fiber are often missing from our plates.
Getting more fiber on a daily basis can pose a challenge in today's fast-paced world, which means supplements can play a key role in weight loss by providing fiber in convenient and ready-to-use format.
However, traditional supplements have not found widespread acceptance with the American public, due to their chalky taste and gritty texture. Manufacturers have tried to address this problem by putting powder supplements in a capsule format, but 10-30 capsules are often needed in order to have a significant impact on an individual's daily fiber intake.
Finally, a new medical discovery makes it easy to consume adequate amounts of fiber for its desired weight loss health benefits. Ready Fiber is the world's first and only clear liquid fiber supplement. Originally developed for critically ill hospital patients who could not use traditional powders or pills fiber supplements, this new "super-fiber" breakthrough is now available over-the-counter to consumers. Ready Fiber's proprietary formula contains only 100% soluble fiber and can be found at Wal-Mart, GNC and other fine retailers. It's new, highly concentrated, natural formula offers 12 grams of fiber per one ounce serving, in contrast to 3-5 grams per serving of the leading fiber supplements.
When it comes to obesity, fiber is a factor that's often overlooked. But given the role it has to play both in weight loss and overall health, it's a factor America can no longer afford to ignore. Learn more at HealthDirectUSA.com/blog
