We’ve heard the shocking statistic that 75% of the population suffers from chronic dehydration and all the symptoms that come with that… weight gain, irritability and low energy just to name a few.
But there is an even more frightening stat that EVERYDAY FIT helps to lower.
… and that is the fight for fiber! A healthy adult should be consuming about 30 grams of fiber per day to balance a 2,000 calorie diet -- but it is estimated that less than 5% of adults actually do this.
That means a whopping 95% of the population is missing this vital nutrient.
So what is fiber and why is it important?
Dietary fiber refers to the edible parts of foods, like fruits, nuts and vegetables that cannot be digested and passes through your body.
There are two types of fiber…
Soluble meaning it dissolves in water and insoluble which means it does not dissolve. Soluble fiber slows digestion and allows you to absorb more nutrients from the foods you eat -- think of this as an Orange vs. Orange Juice…
An orange has fiber that slows down digestion of the sugar while a glass of orange juice does not -- one spikes your insulin almost instantly and floods your body with a ton of sugar calories and one maintains a more stable energy level.
... and insoluble fiber helps clean and scrub the intestinal lining by removing waste… this is especially important to help prevent stomach cancers and sickness.
Fiber has three main benefits (although there are a few more)...
One… Helps promote a feeling of fullness and slows down digestion -- because your body cannot digest this, the fiber takes up space in your stomach allowing more time for nutrients to be digested. This helps curb cravings and if eaten with meals actually helps more nutrients be absorbed. T
wo… Fiber helps you lose weight and Cleans out the Gunk! Without enough fiber in your diet food gets stuck in your intestinal lining creating discomfort and bloating -- over time this backs up and sticks to the intestinal walls increasing the risk of serious illness. Adults with low fiber diets have been found to have up to 2-3 pounds of extra crap in their intestinal lining… A few pounds you just can’t lose? You could be full of crap.
Three… and lastly fiber helps a Healthier Heart… Roughly every 7 grams of fiber daily drops your heart disease risk by about 9% -- this is because the fiber helps shuttle out bad cholesterol before it has an opportunity to clog your arteries.
While you can’t get all of your fiber needs in EVERYDAY FIT there is 2grams of healthy fiber per scoop to help keep curb those nasty cravings, fight bad cholesterol, clean out and protect your insides and keep your heart happy!
