The Skinny On Fiber: How It Can Shed Fat and Fight Heart Disease!

June 29, 2015 1 min read

Fiber. This wonder-nutrient boasts some pretty amazing properties in the battle against body fat, heart disease, cholesterol and colon cancer. So how does this plant compound work exactly? And how much fiber is required in order to reap these benefits? Dietary fiber is broken down into 2 types: soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and binds with bile acids within the body to decrease cholesterol, flush out toxins and aide in the absorption of nutrients. Insoluble fiber is credited for making you feel full and satisfied after a good meal. It's also the fat-loss fiber. Not only will it stave off cravings, but insoluble fiber also adds bulk to your stool and keeps food moving quickly through the digestive tract. By keeping your stomach full and your system moving regularly, this form of fiber can potentially increase your fat loss! Healthy sources of fiber are everywhere, and there's always a way to work this super compound into your meals. Take chickpeas for example, like many legumes they are rich in fiber and can be roasted, or blended into a delicious hummus dip. While there is no set recommendation or daily dose of fiber you should be getting, it is estimated that between 25 and 30 grams is best. Chilli, black bean burgers, blueberry bran muffins and strawberry oatmeal smoothies are all yummy ideas for getting your needed fiber intake. What ways do you like to get creative with high-fiber recipes? Share your ideas with us! If you're looking to shed some serious fat, combine high-fiber foods and this full-body workout. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msLx02Qn4hw dailyhiit.com/fatburnchallenge
