Fibers are essential for wellness and weight loss. They make us feel fuller longer and decreases the amount of time food waste spends inside our body and reduces the risk of infection or cell changes due to carcinogens, that are being produces when some food, particular meat degrades. A frequent meat-eater with a low fiber intake will normally have a gut transit time of food of 72 hours, however if you add high fiber foods in addition, it will decrease the gut time to 24 hours.
A diet with adequate fiber prevents constipation and promotes regularity for a healthy digestive tract. Regular bowel movements are crucial for the daily excretion of toxins through the bile and stool. Provided you are eaten from the right food groups daily there is no need to take any additional supplements.
Eating a diet high in fibers lowers the risk of bowel cancer, diabetes, and most likely you will not suffer from constipation, which is a very common illness in the western world due to mostly our eating habits.
Fibers aids in expanding the inside walls of the colon, thereby paving way for flushing out the waste products from the body and these foods usually are lower in calories, and some fibers, such as fibers found in oats, releases sugar more slowly and control your appetite. Increased fiber intake and a high fiber diet have been shown to help with weight loss and a study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that boosting fiber by 8 grams for every 1,000 calories resulted in about 4 ½ pounds of weight lost in 2 years.
It is suggested by the nutrition board that men under the age of 50 years should consume 38 grams of fiber per day, while women should consume 25 grams per day. For adults over 50 years of age, the recommendation for men is 30 grams per day, while for women it is 21 grams per day. Most people consume less than half of that recommendation.
It is best to get your fibers from a mixture of sources such as oats, lentils, beans, seeds, fruit and raw or lightly cooked vegetables, however please note much of the fibers found in vegetables is destroyed by cooking.
Have a super fantastic day
