Fiber as a ‘good’ carbohydrate
Eating high-fiber foods is a healthy choice for most people. Nutritionists recommend consuming 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day. The average North American typically consumes 10 to 15 grams of fiber daily.
Because fiber is low in calories, it can be added to the diet, providing a greater feeling of satiety without significantly increasing your caloric intake. In addition, fiber’s ability to stabilize blood sugar may also curb the desire to snack. In other words, you may find yourself eating less. This is beneficial in weight-loss programs.
Water-soluble fiber may lower cholesterol by preventing the reabsorption of bile acids. Bile acids are made from cholesterol, and after they aid fat digestion, fiber binds with them and escorts them out of the body. The liver then has to pull more cholesterol from the blood.
Water-soluble fiber may also stabilize blood sugar by slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates into the blood. Plus, it can lower blood sugar levels. Researchers have found that increasing fiber intake results in a decrease in the body’s need for insulin. Psyllium supplementation, in particular, has been shown to improve blood sugar levels in diabetics. For more on fiber (both

For diets high in protein, dietary fiber helps to detoxify and cleanse the body of the nitrogen waste that is produced as a byproduct of high protein food consumption. Cleansing the digestive system may help to alleviate feelings of constipation.
