High Fiber Diet

If you find that you have trouble getting enough fiber in your diet, here's your plan.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Fiber has been long heralded for its positive contribution to your body's health. And while a lot of diet's recommend consuming healthy amount of fiber, it's now thought that Fiber itself could be the answer to your weight loss struggle.

With carb- and low-fat diets catching most of dieters attention, people lose sight of the importance fiber plays in our diets. Fiber can certainly benefit weight loss and your health in general, but some question it's ability to stand alone. A supplement like Hoodia, a natural herb known to aid dieters by staving-off hunger, would be a fine accompaniment to the Fiber Diet.

Plants are the source of fiber. When you eat fruits and vegetables, there are parts of the food that your body cannot digest, like the stem. These particles retain water as they move through your system. This trait actually aids in digestion and the health of your digestive system, as these particles aren't absorbed by the body and instead help carry food and toxins out as waste. High-fiber diets have been linked with managing diabetes and colon cancer.

PRO
  • High fiber meals will help you feel full and lose weight.
CON
  • Most healthy diets will recommend a healthy fiber intake anyway.
DIET and NUTRITION

Lack of fiber in our diets is more common in the U.S. than in other parts of the world. Americans are heavy consumers of processed foods and overlook keeping fiber-rich foods in their diets. Most don't realize that incorporating more fiber in your diet, encouraged to be about 25 grams each day, is pretty simple - fresh produce, beans and any whole-grain product. A breakfast of whole-grain cereal with bananas and strawberries is delicious, filling and meets the Fiber Diet criteria.

Fiber becomes bloated when it's combined with water during digestion. Fiber-rich foods also contribute to maintaining blood sugar levels. Therefore, the fiber fills our stomach, giving us a lasting feeling of fullness. You're less likely to be hungry soon after a meal and reach for unhealthy snacks.

Not only will a high-fiber diet contribute to weight loss, but it also maintains healthy digestion and reduces risk of colon cancer.

EXERCISE

The book, Dr. Tooshi's High Fiber Diet, has a chapter on exercise, including cardio and resistance training.

CONCLUSION

You will lose weight quickly and safely with the High Fiber Diet. Most other healthy diets will recommend enough fiber anyway. But this plan is as good as any.

Texas, I have been on this diet for a while now and has treated me quite well. It was a bit hard to get in to the beans and whole-grains at first but now I love them.

After visiting my doctor he mentioned that I need more fiber in my diet - this diet suits me perfectly. I am just starting it now and will post back on some results.
