FIBER MAY HELP CURB DIABETES.

Posted: 02.10.2016
Researchers tracked 29,000 people for 11 years and found that those who ate the most fiber (more than 26 grams a day) had an 18% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who ate the least (less than 19 grams a day). The effect may be due to weight loss associated with eating more vegetables and grains. The fiber in their diets came mostly from cereals and vegetables. Eating a diet high in fiber may make one feel fuller for longer, slow down absorption of nutrients and help control blood sugar. Some high-fiber foods include beans, nuts, vegetables, berries, oatmeal, popcorn, and whole-grain breads, cereals and pastas.
