Fiber Is Your Weight Loss Friend

Fiber is known by a dizzying number of names these days. Soluble, insoluble, dietary, functional, it can be confusing! The fact of the matter is fiber will help you with staying healthy and making sure you feel sufficiently full once you’ve consumed a meal.

Soluble and insoluble fiber aren’t used as much these days. The focus has shifted towards dietary fiber and functional fiber. The former is naturally found in whole plant foods such as vegetables, whole grains, and fruits. The latter has been extracted from its natural source and added to a supplement or a certain food.

Foods that are rich in fiber are not only nutritious, they also promote health. The average woman needs to consume about 25 a day while men need about 38 to get the most benefits from fiber, yet most people never get that much. Consuming a sufficient amount of fiber can potentially lower the odds of cardiovascular disease by improving cholesterol levels and reducing the odds of a stroke. Additionally, fiber can also reduce the odds of developing type 2 diabetes and it may even prevent cancer.

Because it’s so effective in helping with feeling full after a meal, a diet with sufficient fiber can significantly help with weight loss. Our Hop Step Jump Energy Bars have twelve grams of fiber, just enough to get you about halfway towards your daily recommended intake.
