I have NEVER heard of that before, or read that before. Fiber is largely not digested so therefore not absorbed into your blood stream, therefore has no affect on raising your insulin levels and will not affect ketosis which is the fat burning mechanism this diet is based upon. Are there any medical studies or reseach your coach has to back that up? Or maybe somewhere in Dr.Chann's book that I missed it? I would be interested in reading them... but I am puzzled by that statement.
