Yep, a diet that has a balance of both soluble and insoluble fibre can promote fat loss. It does this via a couple of mechanisms...1.) Fibre can increase the motility of a stool (faeces), therefore it can increase the transit rate of fat through the bowl, consequently you stand to absorb slightly less fat than you ordinarily would. 2.) Fibre is satiating, in other words it can make you feel fuller for longer because of the time it takes to digest. Fibre, specifically insoluble fibre has a relatively indigestible component meaning the food source sits for longer in the stomach helping you to feel fuller. Not only that, insoluble fibre draws fluid into the stomach and swells upon contact with it, this increases the space it occupies in the stomach helping you feel fuller.
