“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Cor 10:31

Besides eating a proper balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, your fibre and water consumption should also be taken into consideration.

Fiber

Fiber can help lower cholesterol, prevent constipation,balances your blood sugar,  improves digestion and can actually aide in weight release by making  you feel full without adding a lot of extra calories to your diet. It fills your stomach by telling your brain that it’s time to stop eating.

Soluble fiber (fiber that digests in water) can also help you get to — or stay at — a healthy weight by keeping you feeling full without adding many calories to your diet.

They include:

  • Oatmeal
  • Nuts
  • Beans

  • Peas
  • Lentils
  • apples
  • Blueberries
  • Legumes (peas, beans, lentils)
  • Barley
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables (especially oranges, apples and carrots).

Insolube fiber (fiber that does not dissolve in water)

They include:

  •  wheat bran
  • legumes
  •  seeds (flax, chia)
  • skin of fruits
  • brown rice
  • psyllium

How much should you consume? 

On the average, you should consume between 25-30 grams of fibre per day

Water 

You’ll also need to drink plenty of H20 to move fiber through your digestive system, and that helps against hunger too. Water also contributes to weight loss because it helps to make you feel full.

How much should you consume? 

You should try to drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, then you would drink 75 to 150 ounces of water a day.
