Reducing excess weight reduces the risk of the contemporary diseases that end life prematurely. Eating food with 35 grams of fiber satisfies appetite without consuming enough calories to add body fat. The fiber slows down your body’s carbohydrate conversion to sugar. Blood glucose levels are more stable, so your mood and hunger are more stable. It is easier to lose weight and avoid diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and numerous other ability robbing diseases.
