Fibre belongs to the family of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the main source of fuel needed for any form of physical activity, fuelling brain and overall vital function of our body. However, fibre itself doesn’t provide us energy as it is enzyme human digestive system is unable to break down and hold its sugars together instead. That results into slow release of sugars in food, reduce hunger and satisfy our appetite. Therefore dietary fibre is behind the weight loss.
If you decide for the diet rich in dietary fibre, you will have plenty on your plate and you will not get lots of restrictions at the same time. Another advantage is, the food you will consume is very healthy and easily adaptable to requirements of every person’s habits without much restrictions. You will eat lots of vegetables, fruit, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole wheat products.
Diet rich in fibre is very beneficial for people suffering diabetes or heart problems. Fibre helps maintain the sugar level in bloodstream, lower bad cholesterol but support weight loss at the same time.
Clients are satisfy hunger with lower amount of food. They also lower their weight without starving, the process of weight loss is very natural.
You do not need to get into a special diet programme (although there is one), you can just choose wisely what you will buy & eat (you can easily eat in restaurants). The food I am recommending is:
- Legumes & pulses: chickpeas, beans, lentils
- Whole wheat food: bread, cereals, pasta, quinoa, bulgur
- Fruit: oranges, bananas, avocado, pears, blackberries, raspberries, figs
- Vegetable: sweet potatoes, peppers, cucumber, green leaves vegetable, artichokes, pumpkins
- Nuts & seeds: sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, whole nuts, macadamia nuts, pecan nuts
As you can see, your menu will be very colourful and rich in essential vitamins and minerals without bad fats. Your calorie intake will remain the same or even higher (no starving!) but your weight will not increase. And on the top of that, you will be full of energy during the whole day.
