BALANCING YOUR DIET- FIBRE

Advances in nutritional science have brought us important insights into what goes into a healthy diet:

Protein is essential to control your appetite and to nourish and protect your muscles.
Fiber from fruits, vegetables and some wholegrains is important to maintain balanced intestinal function and clear toxins from the body.
Healthy fats are necessary to rebalance the good and bad fats in your diet.
Carbohydrates provide unique plant nutrients and antioxidants that protect the health of the most important organs in your body.

FIBER

If you’ve only heard “FIBER” mentioned by your grandparents or from the ads on TV, you’re missing out!  Fiber is a great part of a healthy diet and comes in colorful, tasty packages like fruits and vegetables!  We’ve all heard that adding fiber to our diet will help us feel better and be more healthy.

Why is fiber so important?

1) Helps prevent those difficult to talk about things like “constipation and hemorrrhoids.”  Get plenty of fiber and you won’t have to talk about them!

2) Lowers cholesterol levels.  Soluble fiber found in oats, beans, brown rice, and flaxseed may help lower the “bad” cholesterol in our blood.

3) Helps control blood sugar levels.  Fiber takes longer to digest.  Slower absorption means blood sugar levels rise slowly and stay steady.  Stable blood sugar help prevent diabetes as well as helps control appetite.

4) Helps with weight loss.  High-fiber foods generally require more chewing time so you’re less likely to overeat.  Also, a high-fiber diet tends to make a meal feel larger, stay longer and has less calories.We should all get at least 25 grams of fiber in our diet each day.  Fruits, vegetables, lentils and whole grains are good sources.

Here are some of the higher sources:

Fiber One or All bran,   1/2 cup ……. 13 grams
Raisin Bran, 1 cup………………………..7 grams
Oatmeal, 1 cup cooked…………………4 grams
Whole grain bread, 1 slice……………..3 grams
Barley, 1 cup cooked……………………6 grams
Lentils/Beans,  1/2 cup cooked……..8 grams
Broccoli, 1 cup…………………………..5 grams
Peas, 1/2 cup cooked………………….4 grams
Baked potato with skin (medium)….4 grams
Pear with skin……………………………4 grams
Apple with skin………………………….4 grams
Raspberries, 1 cup……………………..8 grams
Orange…………………………………….3 grams

Fiber is commonly classified into two categories: those that don’t dissolve in water (insoluble fiber) and those that do (soluble fiber).

Insoluble fiber. This type of fiber promotes the movement of material through your digestive system and increases stool bulk, so it can be of benefit to those who struggle with constipation or irregular stools. Whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts and many vegetables are good sources of insoluble fiber.

Soluble fiber. This type of fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like material. It can help lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Soluble fiber is found in oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium.
The amount of each type of fiber varies in different plant foods. To receive the greatest health benefit, eat a wide variety of high-fiber foods.

When on a weight management programme, you may not be consuming enough fibre-rich foods. Fibre and Herb is specially designed to aid safe and effective weight control, by providing an increased amount of dietary fibre, which reduces the amount of time food stays in the body and so assists in the removal of toxins and wastes.

Herbalife Fiber and Herb Tablets 3 times a day ensure you are getting enough FIBER.
