    Health Benefits of Fiber

    Fiber is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers but are YOU getting enough? In general, men should have at least 28 grams per day and women 22. Fiber also helps to minimize constipation, helps irritable bowel syndrome, and reduces the risks of diverticular disease and hemorrhoids.

    There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble attracts water and turns to gel during digestion to slow down the rate of your stomach emptying. This gives more time to extract nutrients and you feel full longer. This is found primarily in oat bran, barley, nuts, beans, peas, carrots, apples, and other fruits and vegetables.

    Insoluble fiber adds bulk and helps food pass more quickly (think Metamucil). Foods that provide this include wheat bran, vegetables, and whole grains.

    (Did You Know? Fiber passes through your stomach and small intestine into your colon almost unchanged (absorbed or digested.) This is why when counting carbs you can subtract the grams of fiber to calculate “net carbs”.)

    There are easy ways to add more fiber to your diet. Start your day with whole-grain toast or English muffins. Bran cereal and oatmeal topped with berries are another option. For lunch, 100% whole wheat bread is again helpful. Add veggies to the sandwich and finish lunch with a piece of fruit like an apple. For dinner add more vegetables, change to brown rice and substitute beans for some of your meat dishes.

    Tufts Health and Nutrition Letter


    Speaking of celebrities, there’s a new book out on musician Peter Frampton. He lived in Cincinnati for a while. In fact, while watching one of my daughters cheer during a high school football game, I had the feeling someone was watching me. So I turned and right next to me looking up (he’s not very tall) was what looked like an elderly, balding man. I returned to watching the cheerleading when it dawned on me it was Peter Frampton himself. Not quite the long haired, young rock star of my album cover, Frampton Comes Alive, but the reality of one’s idols as they age. This includes my Mom and Dad.
