How Fiber Helps You Lose Weight on the HCG Diet?

HCG Injections

Fiber is an essential part of a diet when you’re trying to lose weight. Understanding its effect on the body can make HCG injections more effective at reducing weight and inches from your body. It’s very common to hear people say you should include foods rich in fiber into your diet, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. The sad thing about this is you don’t take it seriously. Have you taken it seriously, you wouldn’t have to be where you are right now, overweight. But why is fiber so important in the HCG diet?

Types of fiber and required daily fiber intake

There are actually two types of fiber:

  • Soluble– Soluble fiber absorbs water to form a gel-like substance. This helps slow down how fast your stomach releases foods into the gut. Soluble fiber helps regulate blood sugar level and lower cholesterol levels. A fiber intake of 30 grams can help you lose weight, lower blood pressure, and improve insulin sensitivity. You can also lose belly fat and prevent belly fat gain by eating more soluble fiber. Sources of soluble fiber include oats, rice bran, dried beans, citrus fruits, potatoes, and peas.
  • Insoluble– Insoluble fiber can, like soluble fiber, help control weight by preventing hunger pangs. Adding more insoluble fiber to your diet can help you get your bowels moving if you become constipated. It’s also beneficial if you have bowel-related health problems like hemorrhoids and constipation. Foods that are high in insoluble fiber include vegetables like cauliflower and green beans. Other sources of insoluble fiber include nuts, wheat bran, and whole-wheat flour.

Fiber-rich foods have a low-calorie count. The daily fiber intake requirement for women of 50 and below is 25 grams. The daily fiber requirement for women over 51 is 21 grams.  Men, on the other hand, are supposed to have more fiber intake as they are required to take 38 grams of fiber per day for those 50 and younger. Those 51 and up are only supposed to take 30 grams per day.

The role of fiber in weight loss

Weight loss is an internal process. You will first start to lose hard fat in your internal organs like the digestive system, liver, and kidney. After that, you will start to lose soft fat around your waistline and thigh. Inside your digestive system, fiber normalizes our body’s bowel movements. This decreases the chances of constipation. It also prevents the development of colorectal cancer, which is an abnormal growth of cells that may spread elsewhere in the body.

Fiber is super-filling, and it works best when it can absorb water. Your body digests fiber slowly than simple sugars and starches. You can lose significant weight simply by getting 30 grams of fiber each day, without any other dietary changes. The benefits of fiber go far beyond keeping your appetite under control and keeping your weight under control. It’s good for your gut and encourages gut bacteria diversity. Fiber is heart-healthy and promotes regular bowel movements. It can reduce your risk of diabetes and certain chronic diseases.
