We all know that fiber will help fight against heart disease, cholesterol, diabetes and colon cancer, but it also plays a role in weight loss.
The fiber we consume from plant foods is called dietary fiber.
Dietary fiber can be broken down into two forms, soluble and insoluble fiber.
Health experts recommend Men to consume 30-35 grams of fiber per day, women 20-25.
On average, most people consume only 12 grams of fiber a day.
Soluble fiber, as the name implies, dissolves in water.
It attracts water and turns to gel during digestion. This slows digestion.
Insoluble fiber, again as the name implies, does not dissolve in water, causing an increase in fiber bulk in stool.
This means it helps you pass poop, faster.
