Foods that are advertised for weight loss are nothing new. They generally come in several forms. First are those that simply provide smaller portions than a comparable non-diet product. Second are foods that are lower in a specific nutrient like fat or sugar than something similar. Finally, there are food products that claim to reduce hunger and usually these contain indigestible fiber.
