In a nutshell:
Fiber falls into the category of carbohydrates. Carbs are a type of macronutrient, just like protein and fat. Its purpose is to be broken down by the digestive system to be turned into glucose or blood sugar, the source of our energy.
But unlike regular carbs, fibers are different. Any type of carbohydrate that your body can’t diet is considered a fiber. The fact that your body doesn’t use fiber for fuel doesn’t make it less valuable. It has several uses.
Fiber offers the following benefits when consumed:
Lose weight. Fiber slows down digestion in the stomach. This makes you feel fuller for longer periods, thus having less appetite. Also, fiber-rich foods like fruits and vegetables tend to have fewer calories.
Reduce LDL cholesterol level. LDL cholesterol is considered the “bad” cholesterol. Fiber’s presence in the digestive tract helps reduce the body’s overall cholesterol absorption.
Better bowel movement. If you’re the type of person who has regular problems with constipation, it’s good to consider changing your diet to fiber-rich foods. Fiber isn’t digested by your body. This stimulates the intestines naturally by adding bulk to the digestive tract.
Reduce the risk of gastric cancer. Studies have shown that eating enough fiber can have protective effects on certain cancer types. It is advisable to add fiber-rich foods gradually over the course of a week to avoid bloating and gas.
Promotes better glucose control. Your body takes longer to break down fiber-rich foods. This helps you maintain consistent glucose levels, which is especially good for those who have diabetes.
In today’s video, we’ll be talking about 15 high-fiber foods you should start eating more often.
