Guar gum decreases body weight by 1.8 lbs (~0.81 kg) in overweight adults and those with additional risk factors for cardiovascular disease (Jovanovski 2020).
Guar gum increases satiety for 10 hours (Faris 1998).
Guar gum decreases daily energy intake by 310 calories (Pasman 1997b). That is a weight loss of ~2.5 kg (5.3 lbs) per month or 30 kg (66 lbs) per year.
Guar gum increases the ratio of the healthy to unhealthy gut flora by 100% to 1,000% (Fak 2015, Ohashi 2015, Berger 2014, Okubo 1994). An unhealthy microbiome promotes sugar cravings (Roberfroid 2010).

Water Intake Effects on Weight Reduction, Cravings and Diabetes in Globesity Bootcamp for the Obese

The human body is composed of ~75% water, which plays an important role in every bodily function. Hydrated a person is more efficient in body performance ranging from thinking to burning body fat. Water intake aids in weight loss. It suppresses appetite, boosts metabolism, and makes exercise more effective. Drinking more water promotes satiation, as it passes through the system and stretches the stomach, resulting in fullness. Drinking water also stimulates heat production in the body, resulting in a higher rate of metabolism.

No Calories 4 Hours Before Sleep Effects on Weight Reduction in GLOBESITY Bootcamp Regimen

Post-dinner snacking leads to weight gain through the increased caloric intake (Waller, 2004). Nocturnal snacking increases sugar levels. When sugar levels are increased, hormones such as insulin, ghrelin, and leptin, are activated and specific systems in the body begin to work  (Kalergis, 2003). As the body becomes more alert through glucose metabolism, it may be difficult to switch off and fall asleep (Kristen, 2007). As shown in our other document, inadequate sleep causes weight gain. Women and men consume 15.3% and 9.2% more calories when deprived of sleep, respectively (St-Onge, 2011).
