Types of Fiber
Fiber is so important. In my early twenties I knew that it was important. Most the time fiberlax or a laxative was what most people would suggest. Yet after learning about all the chemicals in off the shelf laxative’s I realized that this wasn’t what I really wanted to put in my body. As I grew into motherhood and startred to understand that our bodies change quite a bit after children or in our 30’s. Growing up I didn’t realize how differently we ate at home. We always had oranges and apples in our house. And our snack food were goldfish or icecream. Rarely did my mother bake. So those smells of muffins, pasterys, or homemade cookies or Georgia Mud Pie and deserts like that weren’t really around. Recently I’ve been looking up more ways to have more fiber in our diet as getting older it really effects my tummy. This article from MyFoodDiary.com really breaks down the differences between soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Highly reccomend reading and review as it has suggested intake and more in depth about who it effect weightloss.
Different Sources of Fiber
Sources of Soluble Fiber: Oat bran, barley, nuts, lentils, beans, peas, apples, pears, and citrus fruits.
Sources of insoluble fiber: Wheat bran, brown rice, broccoli, cabbage, dark leafy greens, and raisins.
Fiber and Weight Loss
High-fiber foods have been associated with improved weight loss. Fiber intake is linked to losing the pesky LOW BELLY FAT. Wow, who doesn’t want to shed those love handles? Besides the obvious physical benefits of fitness, there are also really great health benefits to a healthy gut. Not only is soluble fiber a good PROBIOTIC source, it can reduce risk of colon cancer, it can also reduce risk of diabeties– to learn more about those wonderful health benefits, HealthLine.com has a great article about how fiber and belly fat plays a key role in healthy gut bacteria with many sources to back those claims.
Many high-fiber foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are also low in calories. Additionally, high-fiber foods may keep you feeling full longer to prevent high-calorie snacking between meals. Which is why most healthy concious individuals eat the colors of the rainbow or whole foods as much as possible. It’s far from food snobbery, more like how we ought to eat, in several cases a family member, like a child or spouse, has a food restricted diet related to a disease or some genetic tendancy that really makes them more health concious. Which is far from snobbery, it’s a pretty health concern. Wonderfully enough there are more options to help today than ever before. Its about getting back to the root, going organic to ensure no harmful pesticides and chemicals are in our food sources. Getting back to eating local or all organic real whole food.

It started with listening to my body & basic bio-chemistry. What am I allowing into my body, mind and spirit? What can I do to change. Is all the medical intervention necessary? Being still and listening from within. Asking questions. Lead me to seeking alternative health and more truth. Hopefully you take the time to ask yourself important questions and how to make changes.
