To this day, the only popular diet with “legs on” is the high fibre diet.
Most nutritionalists suggest 18-30g per day, but if you suffer from constipation, you can afford to go higher than that with no ill-effects.
Eat nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fruit ( it is true there is fibre in bread , but see my article about the uses and abuses of bread)
It may be worthwhile considering Oats and Bran and Psyllium husks
It probably works in the area of food intake control.
Inclusion of fiber in the diet promotes satiation and prolongs satiety, aids in long-term compliance to low energy diets, and encourages “healthy” food choices and eating habits. There is an interesting paper available on the internet “DIETARY FIBER AND ENERGY REGULATION” by Britt Burton-Freeman
