These foods that have fiber can actually increase your appetite and make you hungry more often.
But this lack of fiber is actually beneficial for post-workout Magic Window meals since the high-carbohydrates content in the foods will increase insulin activity, which will replenish the fuel in your muscle cells very quickly to aid in muscle building and recovery. However, if eaten when you haven’t exercised, your insulin systems will store the carbohydrates as fat.
List of Foods that have fiber:
(SERVING SIZE UNLIMITED FOR ALL HIGH-FIBER FOODS

(MAGIC WINDOW ONLY)
|SERVING SIZE (ONE SERVING HAS 60 CALORIES)|

While most fruit belongs in the moderate-fiber category, fruit juice generally has zero fiber and is loaded with simple sugars, making it a Magic Windows-only carb. If you enjoy the sweetness and taste of fruit, eat the whole fruit rather than just drinking the juice; it is much more filling and gives you the benefits of fiber.
For those who crave starches or sweets, the Magic Window can be a strong motivation to exercise. In the Hormone Revolution Eating Plan, you have to earn each serving of sugars or starches that you eat-but at least you can still eat them! Women can eat one serving of these foods for every 20 minutes of exercise, and men can eat one serving for every 15 minutes of exercise. This doesn’t mean you should exercise for 3 hours straight so you can pig out at Dunkin’ Donuts. Limit your daily exercise to 1 hour, which means you can eat a maximum of four servings of low-fiber carbohydrates per day for men and three servings for women. Most important, remember that you have to eat them within 30 to 60 minutes of exercising.
