Medical-weight-loss-doctor-nyFoods with fiber sources are an excellent way to lower blood sugar, cut cholesterol levels, and even prevent colon cancer. Few people get enough fiber in their diet. Eating foods that are fiber-rich, not those with added fiber, are the best way to ensure proper amounts of fiber are being consumed. Foods containing fiber sources help to clean out digestive systems and help those wanting to lose weight achieve their goals easier.

Good, Healthy Fiber Sources

When a person does not get the proper fiber intake they will experience lower energy levels, have a difficult time losing weight, and place themselves at risk for heart disease. It is essential to consume adequate fiber when looking to lose those pounds. Women should have at least 25 grams per day and men need at least 38 grams a day.

Three healthy foods that are excellent fiber sources:

  • Oats
  • Raspberries
  • Carrots

Oats are the perfect way to start a day. Just five grams of fiber in a bowl of oats each morning on a regular basis will help reduce bad cholesterol. They are the perfect way to achieve strength and energy and get through hectic mornings.

Raspberries or fruit in general in an eight-ounce serving will provide an excellent source of fiber and water to prevent constipation. This enables the digestive system to work properly. The fiber from the raspberry promotes regularity and enhances weight loss.

Carrots are able to suppress hunger and contain 1.4 grams of fiber in just one small stick. Keeping a small baggie on hand for snacks will suppress appetite and provide a good fiber source.

Fiber will help guard against hunger pains by filling the stomach and telling the brain it is time to stop eating. Fiber with plenty of water to move it through the digestive system will also aid in keeping hunger pains away. When the fiber absorbs water, it forms a type of gel in your stomach. This allows it to absorbs sugars in the bloodstream and lower blood sugar levels. This means the body is less likely to store fat.
