There are actually a few reasons why fiber is a great tool in reaching your weight-loss goals.

Here’s how it works:

  • When you eat foods that are high in fiber, your body may absorb fewer of the calories.
  • High-fiber foods contain a lower ratio of calories by volume than others.
  • A diet with plenty of fiber will leave you feeling full more quickly and for longer after eating, as the food will take longer to move through your system.
  • High-fiber foods take longer to digest, meaning the glucose they contain enters your bloodstream more slowly. This helps reduce “insulin surges” and helps improve insulin efficiency.

On top of that, foods with a lot of fiber often contain lots of other good nutrients. Fruits, nuts, and vegetables, which are all great sources of fiber, are also excellent ways to get vitamins, minerals and more. Basically, eating more fiber means eating healthier overall.
