Getting more fibre in your diet

All across the world, the statistics are the same...people never have enough fibre in their diet. The Australian Heart Foundation recommends that adults must consume about 25 to 30 grams of fibre a day. Most Australians fall short of that, averaging only 20 to 25 grams of fibre consumed per day. The deficiency can give rise to a few problems caused by low fibre intake.

Digestive Health

Dietary fibre is important because it keeps our digestive system healthy. A healthy digestive system means that we are efficiently able to absorb the nutrients in our food. fibre also contributes to stabilisation of blood sugar and cholesterol levels. In the meantime, low fibre consumption can be linked to a host of disorders, including:

  • constipation
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • haemorrhoids
  • obesity
  • coronary heart disease
  • diverticulitis
  • coronary heart disease
  • colon cancer

Increase your fibre intake

To avoid developing these health challenges later on, we must all strive to eat a balanced diet and get our recommended daily allowance of dietary fibre. Here are some ways to increase your fibre:

Your best bet is to eat a lot of vegetables in all of your meals and eat them first! But if you want a quick and easy way, the beginning of your day is when you can sneak in the most amount of fibre. Staple breakfast items such as oatmeal, fruit, smoothies, and granola can be loaded with fibre. You can easily hit half of your target by eating smart during your first meal of the day. Some tips:

  • Drink your fibre! Cut up some pieces of fruit and store them in a freezer bag so that they are ready to go in the morning. Blend them up and add some seeds such as chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, add other super foods such as wheat grass, barley, and blueberries.
  • Get a bowl of oatmeal and top it with high fibre additions such as seeds and fruits. Chia seeds, berries, and apples are your best bet. Raspberries are notoriously high in fibre. If, for some reason, you’re skipping the oatmeal, then just eat some high fibre fruits. Bananas, oranges, and some exotic fruits like mangoes, persimmons, and guavas each have a high fibre count.
  • Check your bread. Not all bread are created equal. Some have a higher fibre content than others. Try whole grains, since whole grains are less processed, leaving the whole grain intact.
  • Take a fibre supplement such as Berry Cleanse. Designed to help maintain regularity whilst cleansing your liver.
