MoonDragon's Nutrition Information: Diets
FIBER-ENHANCED DIET




PURPOSE


Fiber is found in plant foods such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and is necessary in keeping your body regular. Lack of exercise, improper diet, advanced age, illnesses, injuries, and consuming large amounts of junk food reduces the body‘s ability to flush out toxins. There are two types of Fiber. One is water soluble and becomes soft in texture which works to soften stools. The other is insoluble and adds bulk to stools, which stimulates bowel contractions. This diet is designed to provide foods containing indigestible fiber as a part of preventive and/or therapeutic nutrition.




DESCRIPTION


Dietary fiber includes all food substances that our digestive enzymes cannot break down and utilize as energy. The health benefits of both soluble and insoluble fiber have been well documented. While the body may extract and use some of the nutrients contained in fiber, its primary purpose is to help the bowels function efficiently. The basic fiber structure passes through the digestive tract to flush the intestines and give more bulk to the stool.

National food surveys reveal that the average American consumes only one-third of the fiber they need. While the Food Pyramid recommends five servings per day to fresh fruits and vegetables, the average consumptions is closer to two. The average low fiber diet provides only 10 to 13 grams of fiber daily; current guidelines call for 25 to 30 grams daily.

The high fiber diet is based on the basic food groups with a greater emphasis on fiber-rich foods such as fruits, legumes, vegetables, whole-grain breads, and high fiber cereals. The Daily Reference Value for fiber is 25 grams (based on 2000 calorie per day diet). The American Diabetes Association has reported that up to 40 grams fiber daily or 25 grams per 1000 Kcal may be beneficial (National Cancer Institute recommends 25 to 30 grams).







BASIC INFORMATION


There are many reasons why it is important to have an adequate amount of Fiber in the diet. Fiber can help lower blood cholesterol levels. It reduces the risk of heart disease and stabilizes blood sugar levels. It can also prevent colon cancer, constipation, hemorrhoids, and obesity.

Dietary fiber is the component found in many foods that cannot be digested by the intestinal tract. Adequate fluid intake is important when following a high fiber diet due to water binding capacity of fiber. Fiber should be increased in the diet slowly to avoid unpleasant side effects (gas, abdominal bloating, cramps). Dietary fiber can be divided into two separate categories: Water insoluble fiber and water soluble fiber.

Water Insoluble Fiber:
Water insoluble components, such as cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, remain essentially unchanged during digestion. Foods containing water-insoluble fiber include: skins of fruits & vegetables, cereals, and whole grain, wheat bran, beans, nut products. Insoluble fiber absorbs large amounts of water, stimulates the intestinal tract, and provides gastrointestinal benefits. Research suggests that insoluble fiber may be beneficial in the prevention and / or treatment of constipation and diverticular disease and may decrease the risk of colon cancer.

Water Soluble Fiber:
Water soluble fiber, such as gum, pectin and mucilages, does dissolve in water and is found in oats, beans, barley and some fruits and vegetables. Soluble fiber is characteristlcally sticky and meshes with water to form gels. Some studies showed that this type of fiber may improve blood glucose and cholesterol levels, helps maintain normal cholesterol to manufacture even more bile salts..

There are seven classifications of Fiber. They are bran, cellulose, gum, hemicellulose, lignin, mucilages, and pectin, and they all have their own function. It is best to rotate among several different supplemental Fiber sources. Start with small amounts and gradually increase your intake until your stools are the proper consistency. In addition to taking Fiber supplements, eat high Fiber foods as part of your daily diet. Consuming excessive amounts of Fiber may decrease the absorption of zinc, iron, and calcium in your body. Always take Fiber supplements separate from other medications and supplements as it can lessen their strength and effectiveness.

DIGESTIVE AIDS

Proper digestion is one of the body's most important physiological functions in maintaining overall health and wellness. Maintaining normal digestion aids in proper absorption and elimination. Natural emulsifying agents and digestive enzymes are excellent aids to the digestive and absorption processes. Two important digestive enzymes are extracted from tropical fruits: Papain, from papayas, and Bromelain, from pineapple.

  • PROBIOTICS

    Researchers estimate that more than 400 species of bacteria inhabit the digestive tract. Some of these are the pathogenic, or disease-producing, bacteria. But other species are considered friendly bacteria. To an extent, digestive tract health depends on the condition of the friendly bacteria and the control they exert over the less friendly, pathogenic variety. Friendly bacteria are often referred to as probiotics for their multiple, interacting benefits. Some friendly bacteria, such as bifidobacteria, can thrive only in oxygen-free environments. Others, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, require small amounts of oxygen and are known as microaerophilic organisms. As a result, friendly bacteria have the potential to play several roles. Friendly bacteria produce acetic, lactic, and formic acids which lower the pH in the intestine, thereby inhibiting growth of undesirable bacteria and enhancing the nutritional status by helping to digest food and manufacture essential vitamins.

  • NUTRITIONAL ADEQUACY


    The high fiber diet is adequate in all nutrients. Some studies indicate that excessive consumption of some high fiber foods may bind and decrease the absorption of the following minerals: calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, selenium, and zinc. However, it theorized that with a varied, well balanced diet, mineral or nutrient imbalances are unlikely to happen in those consuming a high fiber diet.

  • THE TOP 20 FIBER FOODS - CHART #1


    This list can serve as a general guide. For more specific calorie and fiber content of particular foods, to estimate your daily and weekly quotas, refer to the alphabetical chart that follows:

    1. Dried beans, peas, and other legumes. This includes baked beans, kidney beans, split peas, dried limas, garbanzos, pinto beans and black beans.
    2. Bran cereals. Topping this list are Bran Buds and All-Bran, but 100% Bran, Raisin Bran, Most and Cracklin' Bran are also excellent sources.
    3. Fresh or frozen lima beans, both Fordhook and baby limas.
    4. Fresh or frozen green peas.
    5. Dried fruit, topped by figs, apricots and dates.
    6. Raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.
    7. Sweet corn, whether on the cob or cut off in kernels.
    8. Whole-wheat and other whole-grain cereal products. Rye, oats, buckwheat and stone-ground cornmeal are all high in fiber. Bread, pastas, pizzas, pancakes and muffins made with whole-grain flours.
    9. Broccoli. Very high in fiber!
    10. Baked potato with the skin. (The skin when crisp is the best part for fiber.) Mashed and boiled potatoes are good, too-but not French fries, which contain a high percentage of fat.
    11. Green snap beans, pole beans, and broad beans. (These are packaged frozen as Italian beans, in Europe they are known as haricot or French beans.)
    12. Plums, pears, and apples. The skin is edible, and are all high in pectin.
    13. Raisins and prunes. Not as high on the list as other dried fruits (see #5) but very valuable.
    14. Greens. Including spinach, beet greens, kale, collards, Swiss chard and turnip greens.
    15. Nuts. Especially almonds, Brazil nuts, peanuts, and walnuts (consume these sparingly, because of their high fat content).
    16. Cherries.
    17. Bananas.
    18. Carrots.
    19. Coconut (dried or fresh-but both are high in fat content).
    20. Brussels sprouts.

    *Important as dietary fiber is, laboratory technicians have not yet been able to ascertain the exact total content in many foods, especially vegetables and fruits, because of its complexity. Consequently, estimates vary from one source to another. Where differing estimates have been found, an approximation is given in the chart, as indicated by an asterisk. The same symbol following calorie content means the number of calories has been estimated, varying according to other added ingredients, especially fats and sugars, and to the size of the "average" fruit or vegetable unit.

    ESTROGEN-REDUCING DIET & FIBER

    A proper diet can reduce lifetime exposure to estrogen, which in turn can reduce the risk of a variety of disorders, including breast cancer, endometriosis, and fibrocystic breast disease. Both proper nutrition and reduced estrogen exposure are important considerations for a person who has or has had an estrogen-influenced disorder. You can reduce your lifetime exposure to estrogen by making the following dietary changes:

  • Reduce your overall calorie intake: Reducing calorie consumption increases levels of a hormone called SHBG, which keeps estrogen from stimulating the growth of healthy and cancerous cells in the breast. Scientists believe that calorie reduction has the same effect on other estrogen-influenced disorders. Calorie reduction is not recommended, however, during chemotherapy or radiation treatment.


  • Eat more whole grains, legumes, and berries, and more fiber-rich foods in general. Fiber increases the rate at which estrogen is excreted from the body. Also, some experts believe that simply adding fiber to the diet can reduce the risk of breast cancer by 75 to 80 percent.

    Fiber in the intestine keeps excreted estrogen by-products from being reassembled by bacteria and reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Because the effects of estrogen are cumulative, the benefits of fiber are also cumulative - eating fiber-rich foods confers lifetime reduction of breast cancer risk. For this effect, it is necessary to eat at least 10 to 20 grams of fiber daily, which is difficult without eating high-fiber cereals. If high-fiber cereal is unpalatable, mix it with regular cereal. Use skim milk in your cereal rather than whole milk to reduce fat consumption.

    FIBER INFORMATION SUMMARY

    Fiber is found in plant foods such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and is necessary in keeping your body regular. Lack of exercise, improper diet, advanced age, illnesses, injuries, and consuming large amounts of junk food reduces the body's ability to flush out toxins. There are two types of Fiber. One is water soluble and becomes soft in texture which works to soften stools. The other is insoluble and adds bulk to stools, which stimulates bowel contractions.

    FIBER USES & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    There are many reasons why it is important to have an adequate amount of Fiber in the diet. Fiber can help lower blood cholesterol levels. It reduces the risk of heart disease and stabilizes blood sugar levels. It can also prevent colon cancer, constipation, hemorrhoids, and obesity.

    FIBER DOSAGE INFORMATION

    There are seven classifications of Fiber. They are bran, cellulose, gum, hemicellulose, lignin, mucilages, and pectin, and they all have their own function. It is best to rotate among several different supplemental Fiber sources. Start with small amounts and gradually increase your intake until your stools are the proper consistency. In addition to taking Fiber supplements, eat high Fiber foods as part of your daily diet.

    FIBER SAFETY & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    Consuming excessive amounts of Fiber may decrease the absorption of zinc, iron, and calcium in your body. Always take Fiber supplements separate from other medications and supplements as it can lessen their strength and effectiveness.

    ACACIA GUM ARABIC HERBAL PRODUCTS

    Acacia is a natural, pure, certified organic, soluble dietary fiber produced from the gum of the Acacia tree (also known as gum arabic). Acacia is a natural plant water-soluble fiber that has been harvested for millennia in Africa; its recorded dietary use dates back to the Egyptian pharaohs. Scientific studies have shown that as part of the diet, soluble fiber can help to encourage intestinal regularity. Acacia Powder is also known to be an excellent prebiotic, as it supports healthy gut flora. Because it actually slows fermentation and decreases gas and bloating, Acacia Powder is well tolerated. Acacia Fiber Powder can be used daily and contains no GI irritants or stimulants. Pure soluble fiber supplements are helpful not just for IBS, but also for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis, plus diverticulosis and diverticulitis. Acacia is simply an organic, prebiotic soluble fiber supplement with absolutely nothing else added, and it normalizes bowel function naturally in the same manner as soluble fiber foods. Add Acacia to cup, then add liquid or add Acacia to moist foods. 1 level teaspoon equals 2 grams soluble fiber. One pound has 180 teaspoon doses. Start with a low dose and gradually increase. Take 1 to 3 times a day.

  • GLUCOMANNAN HERBAL PRODUCTS

    Glucomannan (Amorphophallus konjac fiber) is a 100% dietary fiber source obtained from the root of the konjac plant. Glucomannan is a calorie-free, natural plant fiber that removes fat from the colon wall and gently helps to cleanse the intestines and relieve constipation. It increases bulk in the stomach (and intestines) and gives dieters a feeling of fullness, which helps reduce the appetite and assist in weight loss programs. Glucomannan fiber may also be beneficial in lowering total cholesterol and regulating blood sugar levels. We need fiber in our diets every day for good health and Glucomannan supplements are an easy way to fulfill that need.
