The Secret You’ve Been Waiting For!

Fiber! Even simpler is plant based dietary fiber whole foods that you already love to eat.
Yep, that’s it. It’s that simple.
Adding dietary fiber to your diet, in the appropriate amounts, will drastically change your health for the short-term and the long-term. A fiber-based diet isn’t about counting calories or eliminating other macro-nutrients. At M3 we focus on fiber because fiber is the one thing that can impact every aspect of your health, and quickly.
A dietary fiber focused diet is about proper fueling your body to work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Many don’t understand the full purpose of what fiber does within our body, primarily our gut. It is because of this misunderstanding that the benefits provided by a plant based dietary fiber focused diet are underestimated. If you can better understand what fiber does, you can fully grasp the benefits that will follow.
Dietary fiber and Your Gut Health
When you eat fiber, especially the proper amount of fiber, there are a number of things that begin to happen within your digestive system. The presence of fiber automatically begins to slow digestion down. It allows the smooth muscles within your small intestine to contract properly which impacts your ability to digest food, excrete waste and more.
This reduces the amount of bloat, cramping and other problems that can arise within the small intestine and your gut due to eating too much processed foods.
The elongated time that food stays within your digestive tract also allows for better digestion and absorption of nutrients. This means that you aren’t flushing nutrients down the toilet – literally. You will get more out of your food with less damage to your gut and digestive tract. Sounds like a win, win doesn’t it?
What’s more, the longer fiber is present in your gut, the longer fermentation occurs and the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) increases. These SCFA can impact your help in big ways and shouldn’t be overlooked when combating risk factors for multiple diseases.
Fiber and Your Weight
Increasing your intake of fiber can help you control your weight in multiple ways. Since fiber prolongs the digestive process, you will stay fuller for longer which will keep you from overeating. Also, your cravings will be reduced over time as you clean out your gut and the presence of candida.
With fewer cravings and staying fuller for longer periods of time, you will have more control over your calorie intake. Controlling your weight, and losing weight, will become easier as you improve your intake of fiber.
Lastly, weight control becomes easier as your energy levels increase. You will become more energized with an increase in the amount of fiber you eat which will help you have more effective workouts. Properly fueling your body will improve your workout results as well as recovery.
How Will Fiber Change Your Health Forever?
Fiber is the key to changing your health forever. Are you still hesitant to believe that? Let’s take a look at the other health benefits that can be attributed to an appropriate intake of fiber.
Lowering your risk of Type 2 Diabetes by as much as 21 percent can come from increasing your intake of whole grains by 2 servings per day. The Sticky Fiber Diet program shows you that 2 serving sizes are actually low in calories when you are learning about whole grain versus processed food products.
Long-term health benefits can include, but aren’t limited to:
– Regulated Blood Sugar
– Decreased Risk of Diabetes
– Decreased Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
– Decreased Occurrence of High Cholesterol
– Increased Regulation of Blood Pressure
Why is it that something as simple as fiber provides so many results and impacts so many areas of your health? How is it possible that improving your fiber intake will improve your health in so many areas that you can completely change your health and live a better, longer life?
As stated previously, fiber impacts the smooth muscle contractions within the small intestine. Doing so improves the breakdown of food which, in turn, regulates blood sugar, increases the presence of SCFAs with good bacteria and improves bowel movements. The culmination of all of this results in the life-changing health benefits seen above.
