Fibre consumption enhances weight loss; this is because it adds weight to the food we eat without a lot of calories making you get filled quicker and feel satisfied without consuming much food. Fibre also helps in the release of glucose making it a good blood sugar stabiliser, they act as an internal scrub that cleans out gunk and fat from the system.

When you consume less than 1,200 calories per day, you are not eating enough to get all your nutrients, which makes your body slow down your metabolism so as to enable it to hold on to precious calories. If that is the case, then you may need to bump up your calories to increase metabolism. And if you skip meals as a part of dieting to lose weight, it makes your body lose the feeling of being full. For no reason should you skip breakfast, within the first hour you wake up, you should take about 500 calories together with fibre and about 15 grams of protein this will help in enhancing metabolism.

There are many other reasons why your diet may be working against you; it is important to incorporate the right eating habit to stay healthy and achieve your weight loss goal.
