Full Review of High Fiber diet

Dietary fiber is an essential part of a healthy diet. Fiber can be found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes, but can't be digested by the body. Fiber is classified into two forms. The first is soluble fiber, which dissolves in water to form a jelly substance. Soluble fiber can help lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Insoluble fiber, the second type, does not dissolve in water. It increases movement in the digestive system, which can help alleviate constipation. Adults should be consuming at least 30 grams of fiber a day.

The High Fiber diet does not have a strict, calorie-reduced meal plan; rather it promotes healthy weight loss by eating fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, thereby increasing your fiber intake. The reason this diet leads to healthy weight loss is because fiber contributes no calories (on its own). High-fiber foods add a great deal of bulk to your meal, which will satisfy your stomach and keep you full longer. Fiber also helps stabilize your blood sugar levels which will prevent cravings, and Fiber increases regularity.

This diet is very healthy and can be safely followed for long periods of time. Truly, we could all probably use more fiber in our diets! Fiber has so many health benefits that you can't go wrong increasing your consumption. Fiber can help alleviate constipation, protect against some cancers such as colon and breast, help reduce LDL cholesterol and stabilize your blood sugar.
