A high fiber diet can be beneficial to both your health and body weight. High fiber diets have been linked to a reduced risk of many chronic diseases including certain types of cancer, heart disease and gastrointestinal conditions. High fiber diets can help to reduce “bad” cholesterol, control blood sugar levels and improve both digestion and bowel function. In addition, increasing fiber can naturally help to decrease calorie intake as high-fiber foods can be very filling. This in turn can lead to weight loss. This High Fiber Template incorporates the recommendation of 20 to 35 grams of fiber daily and includes a mix of both insoluble and soluble fiber. If your current diet is low in fiber, increase your intake slowly. And stay hydrated when on a higher fiber diet by drinking adequate amounts of water.
