Fibre is typically low in fat and has fewer calories than refined or processed foods. You’ll also consume fewer calories on a high fibre diet. The reason is that eating more high fibre foods makes you feel full faster meaning you’ll consume fewer calories by cutting out seconds or snacks between meals.

Another advantage to eating high fibre foods is that they help to stabilize blood sugar levels, thus preventing glycemic peaks and valleys. That means a high fibre diet is good for those at risk of or already battling diabetes. High fibre diets have also shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.
