Book Review: The F-Factor Diet By Tanya Zuckerbrot

Dietitian Tanya Zuckerbrot says eat your fiber, but don’t cut out foods

There’s not a doubt in my mind how healthy consuming fiber is as part of my healthy low-carb lifestyle. When I lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, my adequate consumption of delicious sources of fiber was a major part of my success. For people who complain about constipation on low-carb, there’s no better cure than big gulps of water and enough fiber to allow your bowel to shake, rattle and roll!

With high-fiber low-carb foods such as coconut flour, ChocoPerfection chocolate bars, NexGen low-carb muffins, Konjac brand shirataki noodles, GoLower nut bars, and Atkins Advantage bars, there’s no reason why anyone who is livin’ la vida low-carb can’t get PLENTY of fiber in their diet.

The subject of fiber is somewhat controversial within the low-carb community, but I am convinced fiber is an excellent addition to your diet especially during weight loss. That’s why I was attracted to and intrigued by a new diet book centered around fiber consumption. It’s called The F-Factor Diet: Discover the Secret to Permanent Weight Loss.

Oooh, the “secret to permanent weight loss” is certainly a compelling a bold claim to make. But nutritionist Tanya Zuckerbrot is convinced she can confidently back up that claim made by her book with the principles she shares in it. And I must say, some of what she writes about is right in line with what I personally believe regarding a healthy weight loss diet. Unfortunately, some is not.
