Consuming foods that are high in both soluble (e.g. porridge oats) and insoluble fibre (e.g. skins of fruit and veg) can help to LOSE WEIGHT due to their ability to increase the transit rate (speed) that fatty foods pass through the digestive tract (bowel/ intestines etc), reducing fat absorption.
In addition to this, soluble fibre such as porridge oats significantly reduce the LDL to HDL ratio i.e. increasing the HDL (good) cholesterol, reducing the likelihood of cardiovascular (heart) problems and high blood pressure.
If your fibre is low, consider Optimum Nutrition’s Fitness Fibre.
