Soluble Fibre

Postby yellowroses » Fri Aug 08, 2008 1:58 am

I was just reading something quite interesting about soluble fibre.

By increasing (steadily and slowly) your daily soluble fibre intake (can be done through supplements or eating something such a Psyllium husks) it can aid in natural weight loss. I'm not 100% sure of all the reasons, but I believe one of them is that soluble fibre helps make you feel fuller for longer and content.

I'm totally going to start mixing in fibre supplement with my morning yoghurt, see if it works at all :)

Oops sorry, forgot to add - there was a test done in the US and people who took fibre supplements twice to 3 times a day lost about 5 times more weight than those who didn't take any fibre supplements at all.

im a big believer in taking soluble fibre supplements. i take benefibre usually once or twice a day.

with my job and lifestyle its easy for me to get constipated so this works a treat :)

and yer i think the reason it helps you lose weight is keeps you feeling full.

Fibre is good. Not only does it keep you feeling full, if you eat it in foods rather than as supplements, it's bulky food that takes time to chew and gives your stomach time to register that it's getting fed.

Soluble fibre slows the speed your stomach empties and best of all, some soluble fibre foods and supplements break down fats that would otherwise cheerfully attach themselves to our unsuspecting hips, thighs and bellys. The fats get excreted out with the fibre. How good is that! :mrgreen:

I've got a page on my website about high fibre foods you might like to have a look at http://www.lose-fat-get-fit.com/high-fiber-diet.html

^_^ It's lovely stuff. I happen to be a big fan of eating four bean mix, lol. I know most people don't tend to like beans, but I love them and eat them almost daily as one of my sources of soluble fibre, along with oats and apples :)

Dietary fiber, the edible portions of plant cell walls that are resistant to digestion, is an extremely beneficial component of our diets. Not only does it help ward off many diseases, it has been shown to aid in weight loss by reducing food intake at meals. This is because fiber-rich foods take longer to digest and thus result in an increased feeling of fullness and satiety. In addition, the more gradual absorption slows the entrance of glucose into the blood stream, thereby preventing large blood glucose and insulin spikes.
The recommended fiber intake is 20 - 35 grams per day for adults, or 10 - 13 grams for every 1,000 calories in the diet. This recommended amount should come from a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber, since each type provides different benefits.
