5 High Fibre Foods To Eat For Optimal Health And To Lose Weight

, 5 High Fibre Foods To Eat For Optimal Health And To Lose Weight

Here’s why our BodyBack personal trainers love high-fibre foods, and will encourage you to top up on them in your customised diet plan. 

Dietary fibre is a non-digestible carbohydrate found in foods. It’s split into two broad categories based on its water solubility: Soluble fiber, which dissolves in water and can be metabolized by the good bacteria in the gut; and insoluble fiber, which doesn’t dissolve in water.

Nicole, BodyBack’s head of expert trainers, says, “High-fibre foods also make you feel fuller for longer, while a diet rich in fibre can help digestion and prevent constipation. Certain types of fiber help you lose weight, lower blood sugar levels, and fight constipation.” 

Add these top 5 high-fibre foods to your diet plan to help you lose weight:

Beans and lentils. Sneak them in your soups and mince. 

Avocado. Mash it, crush it, dip it! 

Whole grains, like whole wheat bread and oats. 

Broccoli – a good gut bacteria favourite. 

Popcorn – another reason to get snacking!

If you’ve asked yourself, “Can a personal trainer come to me?”, the answer is yes! BodyBack has certified fitness coaches who create a health and fitness plan specifically to your needs, that you do in the comfort of your home.
