Higher fiber intake is associated with increased insulin sensitivity (IS) and reduced glucose-induced insulin secretion (GIIS) during isocaloric-diets; however, its role in hypocaloric-diets is unclear. We examined whether increased fiber intake predicts the amelioration in IS and GIIS following a hypocaloric-diet.
