Do you get enough fibre?
Fibre is one of those nutrients that is often thrown around when discussing good nutrition, but many people don’t actually know what is or how it benefits their body. It is complex carbohydrate (sugar) that can only be found in plant products, including fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Unlike other carboyhydrates, which are broken down and used as energy, it can not be broken down by the human body. Instead, it is used by the digestive system to remove waste and toxins from the body.
Benefits of Fibre
- Foods that are high in fibre tend to fill you up fast and allow the feeling of fullness to last longer. This aids in weight loss because you tend to eat less and less often.
- Because of fibre is not digested by the body it is well known for aiding in regular bowel movements and preventing constipation.
- Fibre is useful for maintaining healthy colon function and as a result may help to prevent colon cancer (Skillsyouneed).
How much Fibre is recommended?
The American Dietetic Association recommends that in order to obtain the full benefits from fibre, a healthy diet requires a daily fibre intake of 25 to 30 grams. Sadly, it is reported that only 1 in 10 Canadian achieve this goal. The average Canadian adult consumes only half (12 grams) or less required fibre a day(Canada). New recommendations from the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine shows that by eating a high fibre breakfast, such a fibre enriched cereal (3g or more), increased Canadian daily fibre intake by 15%.
