Fibre is amazing stuff and not just because it makes you “regular”!
It helps to lower insulin levels which in turn can help in the body’s battle of fat absorption as well. It also absorbs water and swells up in your stomach which also makes you feel fuller for longer and staves off those hunger pangs making you feel less tempted by those sticky sweet goodies for afters.
Great sources of fibre are oat based cereals, beans, pulses and vegetables.
Vegetables are also a fantastic food source as they are the one food you can eat as much of as you like (within reason, obviously eating a dozen cucumbers may have a strange affect on your digestive tract).
They provide you with stacks of vitamins, and minimum calories.
Vegetables are also the perfect snack food if you eat them raw, carrots, celery, etc and can provide the base of most major meals when you steam, grill or fry them.
The best way to get the most out of your veg is to cook them quickly and eat them crunchy before they lose their nutrients.
Try to go for five portions a day although nine would awesome!
