Is Fiber The Magic Bullet Of Weight Loss And How To Burn Fat Fast?

Is it hard for you to burn fat fast? As we age, it gets harder and harder to keep those extra pounds off. This is because our diet is unhealthy.

Raw foods, both fruits and vegetables, provide high quantities of fiber. We have all heard about the benefits of fiber: keeps your digestive system moving, prevents certain diseases like cancer and keeps weight under control.

So how much fiber should you eat daily? 25 grams to be exact. These should come from a variety of fruits, veggies and whole grains.

2 types of fiber are found in foods: Insoluble and Soluble fiber. It is important to understand the functions, benefits and sources of both types. Both soluble and insoluble fiber can not be digested or absorbed into the bloodstream, but is still fundamental to the digestive process. These are considered fast fat burning foods and should be eaten daily. Here’s how:

Soluble Fiber
Soluble fiber binds with fatty acids and prolongs stomach emptying time so that sugar is released and absorbed more slowly. This helps regulate blood sugar, i.e. no immediate sugar highs and crashing lows.

People with diabetes should consider soluble fiber as an essential element of their diabetes management or regulation plan.

Soluble fiber also has been associated with lowering total cholesterol and the now famously bad LDL cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.

Include soluble fiber in your diet by adding Oats, Oat Bran, Dried Beans and Peas, Nuts, Barley, Flax Seed, Fruits such as Oranges and Apples, and Vegetables such as Carrots.

Insoluble Fiber
The best thing about insoluble fiber is that it pushes stuff through your digestive tract and cleans it. It also helps control or balance the pH (acidity) level in our intestines by removing toxic waste through the colon in less time.

Maintaining an optimal level of pH within the intestines helps prevent microbes from producing cancerous substances which in turn prevents colon cancer.

Insoluble fiber can be found in green beans, spinach, strawberries, carrot and apple peelings and whole wheat items

To burn fat fast, eat forty grams of soluble & insoluble fiber every day.
