“Tip 9. Eat more fibre (increases satiety AND regulates blood glucose)
Fibre improves constipation and helps keep you “regular” by improving digestive transit of food stuffs; it supports colon health.
Some studies show that fibre, and especially viscous fibre, can help your body reach satiety faster than other foods (15). In terms of losing weight, fibre helps keep you fuller for longer and the more satisfied you are, the less likely you are to overeat.
To up your intake of fibre say hello to your new best friends, veggies. If you don’t already eat them you should do because vegetables are full of essential nutrients and a great source of fibre.
If you thought that the only thing fibre did was to keep you fuller for longer, you’d be wrong. Studies also show that fibre has a regulatory effect on blood glucose, and starchy foods that have a higher fibre content are associated with a lesser insulin response (16). Properly controlling blood glucose and insulin is imperative if you want to lose weight.
UK Government guidelines published in July 2015 say that your dietary fibre intake should be 30g a day. The problem is that most folk rely on processed and pre-packed foods, resulting in them eating far less than the recommended 30 grams a day.
For weight loss I’d recommend eating as much as 40 grams of fibre every day.
The different types of fibre: soluble, insoluble and more
Fibre isn’t technically a food for humans; rather it’s a part of a plant that our bodies cannot properly digest, nontheless you definately need to include a good amount into your diet plan.
There are literally hundreds of different types of fibers, each with their own different physiological effects. There are six basic categories of fibers:
To cover all bases, you should eat a little of each:
Soluble fibres such as the pectins in apples and oranges
Gummy fibre in rolled oats
Insoluble celluloses in wheat bran
They key to proper nutrition is eating a variety of whole foods and learning what foods contain what nutrients.
For instance if you thought of having a walnut salad with your avocado and salmon, you’d absolutely get a dollop of fibre, but probably too much fat. Despite those foods containing good fats, it’s still too much fat. Don’t be ignorant to what you put into your body, it’s your responsibility.”
I’m Linda. And I tried it all.
Atkins, Southbeach, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig.
And I even listened to that silly baseball guy who talked about the shakes on TV for all those years.
And yet, since I had my second daughter at 28, I had gained even more weight and had not lost any…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good Lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
Hey, it’s how I attracted my husband Tom!
But after Andrea was born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
Then one sleepless night, I stumbled on a health segment on MSNBC…
Featuring Todd Pittman, a civil engineer from Asheville, North Carolina.
What was unique about Todd’s situation was that he was able to finally lose 68 pounds by following a simple 10-second “morning trigger” after struggling to lose weight for so many years.
Todd started by exposing the biggest nutrition lies the big fitness and weight loss players preach.
Just to push sales of their fad diets to make millions of dollars.
“To lose weight successfully, you shouldn’t eat less. Nor should you cut out carbs. Nor should you exercise until you drop,” he sternly quipped.
He then shared a multi-year study that demonstrated consistent and aggressive cardio routines have little effect on weight loss.
And that doing lots of endless cardio is actually bad for your health.
At that moment, it dawned on me that how all of the things I thought I was doing right – starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda— they were actually holding me back rather than helping!
Can you believe that?
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain because I was fed lies.
Todd continued to explain how our bodies work. With only some minor changes, no matter your age, shape or size, you can kick your body into fat burning mode for much longer than normal.
Todd then shared his simple 10-second “morning trigger” that is scientifically proven to accelerate your metabolism and burn stubborn fat.
I listened intently and jotted down everything I heard as quickly as I could.
I remembered being skeptical — despite Todd showing a “before” picture and an “after” picture of himself from a couple of months ago.
But I owed it to myself to at least give this morning trigger a try.
And really, I was desperate to try anything.
So, that same week, I started the simple 10-second “morning trigger.”
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following Todd’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I’m not down to 130, but at my age and for my height, I think 145 is pretty darn good.
And, at 44 years old, I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… Tom can’t keep his hands off me!
Since then, I have found out that Todd made it his mission in life to share this healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
Todd’s discovery has made such a big impact on my life that I would regret it if I did not share his presentation with others.
Imagine waking up every morning full of energy and loving what you see in the mirror…
Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free…
And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
If you’re a woman who has struggled with weight loss, you owe it to yourself to watch Todd’s presentation and finally have the solution you need to lose weight and take full control of your life once and for all.
The consequences would have been disastrous had I not have strapped on my faith and followed Todd’s 10-second “morning trigger”.
I would never be living the life of my dreams right now…
And I would have continued to gain more weight and be inundated with a whole set of chronic diseases including heart-attacks, diabetes and chronic joint pains.
I really hope it has the same impact on you as it did on me. Because the information you’re about to learn has literally transformed my life.
