We all have heard that we should consume plenty of fibrous food every day. However, we rarely know the best way to get the required amount of fiber and why the fibrous food is a necessity.

We know that the fibrous foods are vital for the weight loss; then also a great population still falls short of getting the adequate amount of fiber. To lead a healthy life an adult is advised to have at least 30-35 grams of fiber each day, ideally even much more. Alas, most of them consume only around 15gms.

There are two types of dietary fiber – soluble and insoluble and our body requires both types of fiber. However, both fibers are different and have distinctive roles.
Soluble Fiber: Soluble fiber slows the digestion process by dissolving into the digestive system with water and changes to gel like structure in the stomach. It makes the digestion process slow so that the nutrients can be absorbed effectively by the body. It helps in weight loss, lowers blood glucose, cholesterol and makes the body feel full for the longer duration after eating. Usually, the soluble fiber is found in the foods such as oats, flaxseeds, nuts, beans, peas, lentils and numerous of fruits and vegetables.

Insoluble Fiber: Insoluble fiber helps the body to speed up digestion process by adding bulk to stool. It provides relief from constipation. This is found in green leafy vegetables, green beans, whole grains, root veggies, and potatoes.

So whenever you are advised to eat a healthy diet, that means you should take the right nutrients in the correct amount. This means you also need to take food rich in fiber so that your digestive system always remains in good working condition. If you want to get a personalized diet plan; feel free get in touch with Dietitian Shreya’s Diet Clinic.
