Here’s how Sunfiber will help Washington, D.C. viewers shape up for summer

It’s almost swimsuit season. Have you stocked up on Sunfiber yet? Appearing on News Channel 8’s Let’s Talk Live, registered dietitian and exercise physiologist Felicia Stoler told the Washington, D.C. audience how fiber can help them get their bodies ready for summer.

Stoler, author of Living Skinny in Fat Genes, confirmed that diet and exercise are equally important. “Research continues to show that it’s energy in, energy out,” she said. Stoler advised the audience to learn their body’s hunger and satiety cues. Those will help them to know when they need food and as important, when to stop eating even if there’s still food on the plate.

Brown isn’t enough

Stoler commented that the new USDA Dietary Guidelines report that Americans still aren’t getting enough dietary fiber. She cautioned against thinking that brown rice and pasta will help compensate for that deficit. “White rice has no fiber. Brown has maybe a half gram, which is negligible,” she revealed. Higher fiber food choices include chia seeds and quinoa.

For those who still have trouble getting enough fiber from their food, Stoler suggested using Sunfiber. It is 100 percent water soluble. “I love it. I put in my coffee every morning. It mixes clear.” Sunfiber is also beneficial for those who have certain dietary restrictions. “For someone who is gluten intolerant, it is 100 percent gluten free. It is a very big challenge for someone with celiac disease to get enough fiber, if they are not getting it from their fruits and vegetables.”

Stoler always keeps Sunfiber handy in her kitchen. It is flavorless, odorless and doesn’t turn into a gloppy gel. It can also be used in baking. Stoler admitted, “I hide it {in food} from my children all the time.”

Sunfiber is well tolerated, and has a healthy satiety effect. Unlike other fibers, Sunfiber does not “block” the gut, but rather normalizes the gastric transit time and increases the satiation hormone CCK resulting in a comfortably full and satiated feel.
