Is there a such thing? I use greens to keep me full so i take in a loot of fiber. Jus wondering if im overdoing it. This was yesterdays intake
Goly why disnt i think of that? No need to be a smartass, seriously.. I have googled and only a bunch of blog crap comes up. No real science based stuff.if tu know the answe id like to know other than that feel free to ignore this thread instead of posting belittling commentsOriginally Posted by Type O Hero
You should not be consuming more fiber than fats.
^ great info.
Well its easier to stay full with low calorie foods..lots of em. So is 60g of fiber too much or jus too much accompanied with the low fat intakeOriginally Posted by Rodja
Thanks for the help rodja. Do you happen to have any sources besides what the fda recommends..the math jus doent add up with me.. Basically all my carb sources, 2 cups of oats,1 cup of brown rice and one can of red kidney beans yeilds 50g of fiber and thats without any vegetables. Do i have to use foods lower in fiberOriginally Posted by Rodja
Fiber intakeOriginally Posted by Rodja
If i cut out all the veggies out of my diet.. My carb sources, having fiber, adds up to 50g.. I dont want cheat myself of phytonutrients that are found in fruits and vegetables.Also the fiber from most greens are indigestible so dont even count a carbs
Food for thought
Whole grain fiber has been tested in a clinical trial called "the Diet and Reinfarction Trial (DART)" This study included 2,033 men who had previously suffered a heart attack and compared a high-fiber group with a control group. The high-fiber group ate whole grains and doubled their grain fiber intake from 9 to 17 grams per day.
The result? The number of deaths in the high-fiber group was 22 percent higher over the two-year study— 9.9 percent of the control group died versus 12.1 percent of the high-fiber group.
As to your question on what optimal intake of fiber is, I would recommend 1% of total energy intake be fiber, specifically resistant starch and pectin which is your fruit and veggies. I would avoid wheat and beans.
