Add Fiber to Your Diet
Not all carbohydrates are considered equal.In fact, one very important carbohydrate, fiber, is something that most people should have more of in their diet. So whether you are following a low carbohydrate diet or not, fiber should be on the menu.
Studies show that eating at least 25 grams of fiber each day can help lower your risk of heart attack and lower your cholesterol. Fiber also aids in digestion and helps keep people from becoming constipated.
There are two different types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber turns into a gel and mixes with liquid when it is ingested and passes through the body. Insoluble passes through the large intestines as is, without mixing with liquid.
Both types are indigestible, which means they don't break down, they have no affect on blood sugar levels (good news for diabetics) and they don't add to the overall carb count in the foods you eat. In other words, when reading the label, subtract the carbohydrates in fiber from the overall carbohydrate count in a particular food to find out the total "digestible" carbs.
You'd think that getting enough fiber in your diet would be an easy thing. After all, we're only talking about 25 grams. Unfortunately, if you're on a high dairy, high protein diet, or you just don't enjoy fruits and vegetables, you may not be getting enough fiber to handle what your body needs.
Here are some tips for getting more fiber in your diet without having to completely change the way you eat!
Just a few simple changes to your normal eating habits by adding more fiber to your diet can make a world of difference to your health.
