In The News: Holiday Eating

Last Friday I was interviewed for this Reuters piece on holiday eating.

I spoke with reporter Terri Coles about common traps people fall into during this high-caloric time where food is plentiful.

We also spoke about helpful behavioral modification tips readers can implement to enjoy holiday meals without morning-after regret.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Hi Andy,

I have a question that I was hoping to have your take on. Recent news and media have advocated for a higher consumption of fiber. In response, there seems to be an overwhelming array of new products supplemented with additional fiber. I've noticed that 25-35 grams per days is deemed ideal, but with these new products, it is easy to go over that. A cup of All Bran cereal delivers 20 grams in itself! Coupled with a few slices of whole wheat bread at lunch, fruit for snacks, and some oatmeal in the evening, I've estimated a 60+ gram intake on some days. Is it dangerous to consume too much fiber? Should we be worried about vitamin absorption? Thanks for your help!
