Increasing your fiber intake isn’t as difficult as many people believe it is. It all starts with the right diet, and choosing the right food.
If you have been looking for high fibre smoothies for constipation and high fibre smoothies for weight loss, then you have come to the right place.
The recipe we have for you today can help with both!
Why Does Fiber Help With Weight Loss?
Fiber helps promote satiety and a feeling of fullness.
It slows down gastric emptying and increases satiety. Studies show that soluble dietary fibre plays an important role in regulating the appetite.
Feeling full and satieted, will reduce the amount of food you consume for the day, which can lead to a calorific deficit.
Once you are in a caloric deficit, your body will need to start using up your fat as energy, which leads to fat loss.
Can Smoothies Be High In Fiber?
Most smoothies naturally contain a good dose of fiber in them, due to the fact that the majority of smoothies are made using fruit and veg.
Fruit and vegetables contain a great amount of fiber.
However, smoothies can easily be customized to contain more fiber per serving. This all comes down to the right ingredient selection.
If you love flaxseeds for example and you are looking for flaxseed smoothie recipes, this smoothie we have for you today has flaxseeds and other high-fiber foods.
What Can I Add To Smoothies For Extra Fiber?
Adding high fiber food is the best way to naturally add fiber to your smoothies.
Some of these foods include:
- Leafy Greens
- Broccoli / Cauliflower
- Peas (pea smoothies are very tasty)
- Chia Seeds / Flaxseeds
- Sweet Potatoes
And this list goes on! You have so many options.
