Increase your Fibre Intake
The role of fibre is much more important than simply preventing constipation. There are two main types of fibre: soluble and insoluble. Insoluble fibre is found in whole grains and vegetables, while soluble fibre is found in fruits, oats and beans. Soluble fibre helps to control cholesterol because it binds with some of the cholesterol and fat in the food you eat. Fibre can also be useful when you want to lose weight because it helps digestion, increases your feelings of fullness and removes toxins from the body.
