NUTRITION - FIBER
Fibre [or fiber] is the part of plants that our bodies
cannot digest. Fruit, vegetables, grains and legumes
all contain fiber. Fiber is helpful in maintaining adequate
digestive function, and it also has been shown to play
a role in decreasing risk of high
blood pressure, some types of cancer
Studies have shown that eating higher amounts of fiber
definitely decreases the risk of developing heart disease.
Eating breakfast cereals with 5 grams of fiber per serving
produced even lower rates of heart
Our antiaging wellness program suggests 60
grams of fiber each day.
This can be done with any of the following:
- Whole grain products.
- 2 servings of low Glycemic Index (GI) fruit, with
the skin (unpeeled apples or pears).
- 6 servings of vegetables, with their skin. Cooking
only slightly affects fiber content.
- Legumes, such as kidney beans, garbanzo beans and
lentils. Legumes contain more fiber than any other
type of food and they are also rich in protein.
- Breakfast cereal that contains at least 10 grams
of fiber per serving.
Daily Amount: 60 grams of fiber each day.
