“Drinking freshly made juices and eating enough whole foods to provide adequate fiber is a sensible approach to a healthful diet.”–Jay Kordich
When we are discussing the health matters and the food that is necessary for the healthy life and living we cannot ignore the benefits of high fiber foods and diets. High fiber foods that involved fruits, vegetables, almonds, peanuts, popcorn, beans and whole grains are so good for health that it can easily resolve many of the problems a person can have in his life.
High fiber foods are so enriched in vitamins and minerals that it prevents many such diseases like heart attack and blood pressure and diabetes because it has the ability to improve the digestive system. Rich fiber diet is so good in his nature that it improves the whole body system and digestion process. Our body mainly has the digestion system that helps to improve the quality of life. The person who is taking the right fiber diet and in the right time will feel stronger and powerful than other people with different health issues like slow digestion, ulcer and constipation.
High fiber diet is like a key to healthy life because it absorbs in the body so easily and doesn’t have to be dissolving like other food items. It can pass easily through the whole system of the body through stomach and intestine and helps to prevent the problem of constipation. Females naturally have problems like indigestion and constipation during the full time of pregnancy due to hormonal changes in their body. A hormone called progesterone produces in their body during pregnancy which slows down the digestion process and constipation problem starts in them. So for this reason some of the doctor’s advice to take highly rich fiber foods because it helps a lot in this regard and the problem of indigestion and constipation diminish. High fiber foods are of two types.
Soluble fiber (present in citrus fruits, apples, oat meals and most importantly in barley) dissolves in water and helps in lowering the cholesterol level as well as glucose level of the body. Insoluble fiber (present in vegetables, nuts, whole wheat and bran) helps in improving the digestion process and improves the functionality of the intestines.
Fiber rich foods are also good in weight reduction. It reduces the calories intake because the food with high fiber takes long time to chew and in result the person eat less. Secondly this type of food absorbs water in the body and the person feels like he is full but actually ha has taken less food than normal. His digestion system starts working actively which is also good if someone wants to control or reduce his weight. Fresh fruits and vegetables are rich in fibers instead of fruit juices because juices have added sugar in them. Taking salads instead of full lunch adds low calorie count in the diet but are rich in vitamins and minerals which cover the major part of the diet.
Using of rich fiber products and food has many benefits in life. I have tried this and I always try to add fiber rich diet in my routine because it helps me a lot in my life in dealing with many health issues and problems and I would suggest you to also add this habit of eating fiber rich foods in your life. You surely will see the difference in your life.
