Dr. Tim Says...
Fiber is not one particular food, but the part of plant foods that your body can’t digest -- what your grandma called roughage. She might have thought of getting more roughage as eating more greens and beans but there’s so many other great sources of fiber.
Technically fiber is a carbohydrate, but it is not absorbed into the body like other carbs because humans don’t have the enzymes to break them down. As a result, foods that are high in fiber are generally lower in calories. The Health of It All : Fiber
Featured Recipe: Pumpkin Bread
This recipe is just delicious. It is so easy to make and the kitchen has that lovely aroma of something special -- a feeling of fall coming on and the warmth of a working kitchen in the middle of the winter. Pumpkin Bread
Ask Dr. Gourmet
I have been told that if you are on a very strict diet you should not eat past 7 o'clock. Some others say 9. Is this true?
Dr. Gourmet Says...
The idea of a strict "no eating" time is not going to help you as much as simply keeping an eye on the amount of calories you eat each day. For a lot of us those extra calories come between meals. More on Late Night Snacking
