lyle, i understand that fiber mixes with the chyme and binds to some of the fat in the large intestine, causing some calories to be excreted.

my question is: would the effect be greatest when co-ingesting a high-fiber and a high-fat food, or would there be no added benefit?

for example, say someone eats the majority of their daily fat intake for breakfast around 7:AM (eggs and bacon, for example), then 12 hours later, eats a high-fiber/low fat dinner (e.g. chicken breast, black beans and broccoli).

would the long interval between the high-fat meal and the high-fiber meal negate any of the "calorie wasting" properties, or does one see the same benefits no matter the timing?

i realize i'm splitting hairs somewhat, but i'm genuinely curious.
