Fiber Products

It seems like you’ve been hearing this forever: Fiber’s good for you. Your parents told you that, you’ve had multiple doctors recommend that you add it to your diet, and now, a nutritionist has given you a diet plan with a high amount of it.

But, thinking about foods high in fiber conjures up images of grainy mixes, odd-tasting fortified products, and whole grains. You push it out of your mind, but realize that, in order for your diet to work, you need to try it.

Fiber, as you may or may not yet know, is an important nutritional component for the following reasons:

  • Certain types of soluble fiber lower cholesterol levels
  • It controls diabetes by improving blood sugar levels, and may decrease your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
  • It creates that “full” sensation that keeps you satisfied for longer, which in turn makes it easier to lose and control your weight.

How much fiber do you actually need? While your nutritionist may have given you specific recommendations, the average adult male under 50 years of age needs 38 grams per day, while 25 is recommended for women. For those over 50, 30 and 21 grams are needed for men and women, respectively.

While, naturally, you can get fiber through whole-grain foods, various fruits (but not juices), vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds, Weight Loss Food Direct offers a range of foods to help you meet your daily needs:

  • Fiber supplements that can be consumed alone or blended into a drink.
  • Various great-tasting products fortified with fiber, so not only do you meet your daily intake, but you feel fuller on fewer calories. In turn, you have an easier time meeting your daily caloric amount.
  • Foods with beans, vegetables, nuts, and fruits, whether bars, snacks, or prepared items, that assist with fulfilling your dietary needs.
