Fiber and Weight Loss

Did you know that fiber is one major key to losing weight?

Fiber is a type of complex carbohydrate which is found in fruits, vegetables and whole grain cereals such as brown rice and oatmeal. Only 20% to 25% of fiber consumed can be converted into calories/energy where the rest of it is eliminated from the body as waste.
Because of this fiber plays a key role in weight loss and this can be achieved in the following ways:

-->> Makes one feel satiated; when consumed, fiber makes one feel satisfied and full for long. This helps in suppressing the appetite thus reducing the amount food/calories one consumes in a day leading to weight loss.

-->> Fiber prevents the rise of blood glucose rapidly as this glucose spikes lead into production of more insulin by the pancreas which encourages belly fat and weight gain.
Fiber discourages fat accumulation in the belly and it may also lead into burning of fats in the body. So, go grab your extra helping of fiber today.
