Overseas Health Insurance News: Eating more fibre 'is easy'

Expat insurance customers who intend to eat healthily may wish to consume wholegrain products.

British Dietetic Association spokeswoman Sian Porter explained this can help a person increase the amount of fibre in their diet.

This is an easy alteration to make and can apply to pastas, breads, rice and breakfast cereals, she declared.

Intake of this substance can also be heightened by consuming whole fruits instead of just their juices, the expert noted.

"Levels of fibre are lost with the consumption of the fruit's juice alone," the representative continued.

Ms Porter also recommended leaving the skin on vegetables when eating them, noting many top restaurants do this currently and it has become popular.

They call this manner of cooking and consuming these foodstuffs "rustic", she argued.

Fibre has many benefits to human health, by slowing down the digestive transit, enabling the absorption of more nutrients, lowering cholesterol and helping individuals to feel satisfied after meals.
