Best Health Tips - Eat More Fiber and Drink Plenty of Water
There are certain rules of diet to be followed in order to have a good health. In this article you will find information about the role of fiber and water in maintaining good health. Fiber is not a nutrient, since it passes through the body undigested. But eating fiber substantially reduces cholesterol and may help lower blood pressure. A high fiber diet may lower the risk of colon cancer and can control sugar levels in diabetics. Fiber may even help you lose weight by filling you up without a lot of calories.
Some common sources of fiber are bread, cereals, brown rice, strawberries, pears and vegetables, especially ones with edible stalks and stems such as broccoli and carrot. Diet rich in fiber fills you up without filling you out, keeps you regular, helps lower your cholesterol level and may help reduce the risk of colon cancer. The nutritionists advocate getting at least 20 grams per day. A breakfast of oatmeal, whole wheat toast, a pear and a banana would give you more than half that amount.
The highest fiber foods are fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Water is the most essential of all nutrients. Muscle contains almost three times more water than fat. Water lubricants joints, regulates temperature and provides the body with minerals and essential fluids. The average man should get at least two quarts a day, or about eight glasses, if you are physically active, you could easily need to double that.
