"Just add them to the top of the food should not be eaten may cause changes in body weight," said lead researcher Kathryn Kaiser. But you still have to consume fruits and vegetables for fiber and vitamin levels.

Kaiser said that, in the overall context of a healthy diet, reducing energy is a way to help you lose weight, so as to reduce weight one must reduce calorie intake.
"People make the assumption that high-fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables will replace less healthy foods, and the mechanism for weight loss, but our findings on the best evidence available shows that the effect does not seem to be present among the simply instructed to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables, "he said again.
