ADVANTAGE OF A HIGH FIBER DIET

Posted by JENIE=) Wednesday, February 10, 2010


It is disheartening to hear someone admit of not favoring vegetables. I even have encountered some who do not even know the names of those greens that are mighty important in our daily diet.

Fiber can be called the “sweeper” of body trash. It carries off toxins that may be scattered along our passages; excess fats, unwanted left-over’s, whatever else that we need to get rid of. Gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases can be avoided if we give importance to this high fiber diet.

We will have lower risk to Gastric Ulcers if we have fiber in our diet since it alters gastric emptying time. It helps in clearing our intestines since it normalizes intestinal transit time thus will prevent us from suffering from constipation and hemorrhoids, having Diverticulitis or other lower gastrointestinal problems, and finally the colon cancer that is getting higher and higher in prevalence. It also decreases serum cholesterol and triglycerides, or in lay mans term, our blood streams carrying fat can be diverted into passing them out than getting clogged in our arteries thus also reducing risk to Heart Disease. Possible gall bladder stones are eliminated due to its capability of binding bile acids to which the gall bladder utilizes. And since it delays glucose absorption those excess sugar can be managed. Glucose control is improved due to increased sensitivity of peripheral tissue to insulin.

Fiber in the form of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grain, cereals, oats, wheat; may it be water soluble or insoluble, is essential in every person’s diet. It is just a full diet with greater emphasis on fiber-rich food.

How inconvenient will it be to do what we love most, to eat, and be free of those diseases fore mentioned?

  2. I definitely agree and I do follow this myself much of the time. Most people don't understand at all that high fiber diets help rid toxins that build up that cause problems later.

    People can make the time to do this, but it's all about the mindset of the individual to want to change.

    Nice, important post here, Jenie!

    BTW, I did see your message about where your links are at on my blog. I have an old link list up now, but will an updated one soon which will have all of yours on it. I wouldn't delete your links, and it's only because I haven't finished with adding everything back to the new template yet.

    Take care, Jenie!

    The ADA recommends consuming 25-35 grams of fiber per day.
