Dietary Fibre Rich Foods for Weight Loss


Unhealthy weight gain is the result of  poor food habits. But you can also use food to lose weight. In this article we present you with a list of foods, which are high in fibre and can help you lose weight. 

Benefits of Dietary Fibre:

First off, they swell up in your stomach and reduce the feeling of hunger. Secondly, fibres are capable of binding toxins, cholesterol and bile salts, and help the body to get rid of them. The next important point is that food which contains a huge amount of dietary fibres can slow down the digestion of carbohydrates in your intestines.

You need Soluble Fibre for Weight Loss:

When soluble fibre is consumed it gets dissolved in water and transforms into gel. This gel reduces and binds fats to lower cholesterol. Soluble fibre is also beneficial as it slows down the absorption of sugar, which can help manage and prevent diabetes mellitus.
