Can fiber help prevent me from getting fat?

Eating Fiber to Prevent Fat

Eating foods high in fiber is not only essential to maintain a healthy diet but it can also help you to lose weight. Foods that are chalked full of fiber can help us to feel full so that we'll eat less. In addition, fiber passes through the system taking some undigested fat along. The presence of fiber (like that found in fruit) slows down the absorption of sugar into our bloodstream. This can help to stabilize the levels of blood sugar and can help reduce cravings (this assists in weight maintenance). Some great high fiber food choices include:

  • Oat bran

  • Beans

  • Legumes

  • Bananas

  • Apples and berries

  • Raw vegetables

  • Whole wheat bread

  • Pasta

  • Wholegrain bread

  • Brown rice
