The studies that claim a benefit for fiber all operate under a common theory, that humans are entirely conscious eaters who regulate appetite via stomach tension. This theory doesn't actually work. Someone eating to satiation who starts to exercise will eat more, without noticing it. When we have a cold or flu, we eat less, even if consciously, we know that we need to eat just as much. When we eat rich foods, we fill up quickly, much more quickly than stomach tension would seem to allow.
