Fiber great for dieting as it can add to your portion size and make you feel fuller, without adding calories. The body doesn’t digest fiber, so it helps the body to digest other things like sugars and carbs more slowly.
Apart from being a great weight loss aid, fiber is good for keeping you regular, lowering cholesterol levels and stabilizing blood sugar levels.
There are two main types of fiber, Soluble and insoluble fiber.
Soluble Fiber –
Soluble fiber is good for stabilizing blood sugar levels, as it becomes gel-like when it mixes with water. When your blood sugar levels don’t fall through the floor causing you to crave something sweet and carb-rich, you bring down your calorie count for weight loss, as well as avoiding the increased risk of other complications like diabetes.
Insoluble Fiber –
This is great for the digestion and ensures everything runs smoothly in your bowels. You can find insoluble fiber in foods like vegetables, nuts and whole wheat.
The key to weight loss is eating foods that are high in fiber, whilst keeping your calorie intake low. When you get enough fiber, you feel fuller for longer meaning that you can bring down your calorie count as you do not have to eat as much at meal time.
