    I'd be interested to know who's paying for this research!

    I need a video of that....
    My mind is like my PC screen: 19 tabs open on the top bar, 3 of them are frozen, 25 half written emails on the bottom bar, and I have no idea where the music is coming from...

    It is not that difficult to increase fibre with good real veg. The problem is with todays 'modern' families and eating on the hoof proper meals are not being prepared on the grounds that people do not have time.

    I have read Zoe's article on fibre and concur with her research.

    Those who eat more carb meals than fat may have a bit more fibre from the type of veg, grains, beans and oats they may choose but those who have fat meals can also have natural occurring fibre from the list of veg and berry fruits on offer also.

    THD is not a NO carb or NO fibre WOE.

    Well said - I like to get my carbs and fibre from vegetables, in preference to fruit or starchy sources.

    Ach! Talk about scaremongering! Of course 'low carb' doesn't mean 'no carb' and of course it includes fibrous plant matter. And then to say, 'get fibre from bread and breakfast cereals'... well, let's say the radio alarm woke me up a lot quicker than usual today! They didn't say either how the fibre helped... nor that cutting inflammation (by avoiding breakfast cereals, etc) goes a good way to cutting down the likelihood of CVD.
