Guest Report - Fantastic Fiber

 

 

Fiber is an important component of a healthy diet, and it’s one of the easiest to incorporate. So why are so many Americans lacking the 25 to 30 grams of fiber needed for proper nutrition? The answer to that is the Standard American Diet, appropriately nicknamed “S.A.D.” Processed, packaged and preserved for our convenience, the Standard American Diet contains many fast foods that are fiberless and lacking nutrients. Insufficient fiber intake can lead to chronic health problems such as constipation, elevated cholesterol, weight gain, and even colon cancer. Make the effort to add more fiber into your diet and you will “Feel Better and Live Longer!”

Here are a few fantastic benefits of getting more fiber:

  • Fiber helps to lower your cholesterol and tryglycerides by blocking the absorption of unwanted fats. 
  • Fiber can help give you that full feeling, so that you end up consuming fewer calories at a meal. 
  • Fiber helps stabilize your blood sugar by reducing the rate of sugar absorption and keeping insulin levels steady. This helps to keep fat production and fat storage down.
  • Fiber helps keep your digestive and elimination patterns regular, reducing your risk of colon cancer.
  • Fiber rich foods are usually rich in vitamins and minerals, so you get even more nutritional benefit!

Boosting your daily fiber intake can make a positive impact on your health. Visit DoorCountyDailyNews.com tomorrow to get more tips on easy ways to add fiber to your diet.

Coaching you to “Feel Better and Live Longer!”
