Healthy Fiber We Should Have In Our Diet-5


Healthy Fiber

Points to consider in the daily diet fiber consumption.

Maintaining a Balance
Balance is an important concept to consume healthy dietary fiber and maintain good ealth and lose weight. It is very risky fixed only on a single type of fiber or food with high fiber content. Excessive amounts of insoluble fiber ( such as wheat bran ) and exclude soluble fiber can be a bulky diet in which the benefits of soluble fiber is lost.

Too much fiber can cause symptoms of fullness, satisfaction, constipation and diarrhea. Daily fiber intake should be gradually increased and provide a variety of foods high in fiber.

Consumption of various food products high in fiber

Daily is recommended:
* Eat three or more servings of different vegetables :
A serving is: 1 cup of green raw vegetables or ½ cup of other vegetables. Frequently consume any vegetables and beans . 1 ½ cup of beans cooked or pea is equivalent to one serving of vegetables and also a portion of meat .

* Enjoy two or more servings of different fruits.
Sample portions of fruit would be:
1 ½ apple, orange or banana, ½ cup canned fruit , ¾ cup of juice. Include citrus fruits in your diet or juices like melon and berries for vitamin C.Choose fruit for dessert.

** Develop a varied diet of  fiber product enriched.

°  Choose bakery products with whole grains and bran. Whole grains would be the first in the list of ingredients.

° Choose breakfast cereals high in fiber. Choose cereals with more than 3 grams of dietary fiber per serving .

° Eat fruits and vegetables without removing its skin and pulp .Try adding to your daily diet pea and  beans : such as pinto beans, black and lentils.

° Add seed to vegetable salads . Include sunflower seeds, sesame seeds , pumpkin seeds and spicy garlic, cumin , celery , artichokes,etc. Select seeds instead of fried snacks.

° Snacks high in fiber such as popcorn , soybeans, sunflower seeds and fresh and dried fruits, raisins, prunes and figs.

* Eat 6 or more servings of grain-based products .
These include baked goods based on whole grain, cereals, pasta and rice. A serving is a slice of bread , 1 ounce of cereal and ½ cup of cooked cereal, rice or pasta.

* Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water or 3 to 4 bottles of liquids to reduce the risk of abdominal and intestinal discomfort caused by high fiber intake.

Soluble Fiber

Different studies have found that although insoluble fiber has low water holding capacity, absorbs sufficient to increase the weight of the bolus and shorten  intestinal transit.

Soluble fiber composed by gums, mucilages and pectin, is associated with the ability to bind nutrients preventing its absorption in the intestine, thereby modifying the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates, also lowers cholesterol levels,triglycerides and blood glucose.Among the products with high fiber we found psyllium, a mucilaginous material.

Psyllium is characterized by having no color, and in contact with water , increases its volume from 10 to 20 times, forming a viscous gel effect conferred
mechanical laxative. By its effect, is recognized as one of the best intestinal lubricants bolus.

It is used in pharmaceutical laboratories for production of products sold under known brands. According to clinical studies in humans and animals experiment , the soluble fiber psyllium is effective in lowering cholesterol levels and low-density lipoprotein (LDL ) levels.

Research in hypercholesterolemia people, using different doses of psyllium; 3 to 30g daily,showed reductions of concentration  serum cholesterol 3 to 20 % .

Pysillium soluble fibers have also been used in problems of chronic diarrhea , for absorbing excess water , as well as kidney problems of bladder, urethral , duodenal ulcers and hemorrhoids. Psyllium contains about 8 times more soluble fiber compared with oat bran on a weight basis and is a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber.

Foods containing fiber, such as whole grain cereals have advantages over purified fiber supplements. An example is the presence of antioxidants such as phenolic compounds, which prevent the initiation and development of oxidative reactions that cause stress in cells.

Potential Problems
Increase fiber intake has certain effects on the body and decrease the amount of minerals that the body absorbed ( bioavailability) . The foods containing fiber also contain phytates and oxalates which bind with minerals and once they do they are not absorbed in the body .

Also, consult your doctor especially when you increase the fiber in your diet, this order, to check your supplements based on minerals and preventing the occurrence of gastrointestinal problems and consume adequate fluids.

Dietary Fiber Recommendations For Adults

The recommended intake of dietary fiber depends on the age and sex of the person and is approximately 25-38 grams per day. The reference consumption dietary is 14 grams per 1000 kilocalories.

Nutritionists recommend getting dietary fiber of fruits, vegetables , seeds, foods made with grains integrals, popcorn , brown rice , whole grains , pastas and bran. The above mentioned foods are more efficient than fiber supplements and in turnwill provide additional nutrients.

 About 65 % to 85 % of the vitamins, minerals and micro - nutrients in grains are found in the germ and bran. When the grain is refined or processed as white flour and white rice, the outer part of the grain is removed . Some vitamins and minerals are added to the same refined grains, but fiber and other micro - nutrients are not reinstated. Micronutrients have important physiological functions that contribute to good health , and are needed in small quantities.

Effect of Processing on Dietary Fiber
During processing of food as boiling , microwave, pressure cooking , may occur loss of certain components of dietary fiber. The legumes cooked by different treatments may decrease in fiber content  around 20-25%.

The extrusion cooking of cereal bran content decreases insoluble fiber and soluble fiber increases. In most treatments using heat, the decrease of insoluble fiber, is due to a decrease in the molecular weight of certain components of dietary fiber.

Researchs to  respect have found that treatments using dry or semi dry storage at low temperatures or heat  reduce the content of soluble fiber in oats.

Recommended daily dietary fiber for children
Researchs with children ,show that when children ate cereal for breakfast 8 times a day for periods of 14 days, had 75 % less probability to be overweight , compared with children who consumed cereal 3 times a day or less.

Experts in this area suggest that children over two years of age consume a total of fiber according to " age + 5" per day. This means that children from 4 years old need 9 grams daily fiber consumption , adolescents aged 15  could consume 20 grams of fiber a day.

Fiber Based Products

A tablespoon of a fiber -based product or supplement, provides about 10 grams of additional dietary fiber. In such products, there different fiber components, which are classified as soluble and insoluble fiber.

The insoluble fraction is made primarily of cellulose, lignin and hemicellulose. This fraction is responsible for imparting texture characteristics which cause greater mastication thereby decreasing the increased intake food, while cause some degree of satiety.

Healthy Fiber We Should Have In Our Diet-2


Insoluble Fiber

Insoluble fiber is vegetable material which is not digestible by the human digestive enzymes and are not soluble in hot water. Foods high in insoluble fiber include wheat bran, popcorn, brown rice, cereals, pasta and whole grain products . Legumes, fruits and vegetables also contain high content of insoluble fiber.

Foods high in insoluble fiber take longer to chew, giving us a feeling of satiety. The insoluble fiber may help control  our weight when we consume foods high in fiber ,instead of fatty foods and high calorie foods.

Snacks, dried fruits,fresh fruits, wholemeal bread, soybeans prepared and popcorn (no butter), will make you feel full without consuming many calories.

An effective way to regulate the consumption of insoluble fiber in your diet is eat whole grain bread, cereals, fruits and vegetables. Whole wheat bread gives you 2 more grams of dietary fiber per slice and white bread gives you 0.5 grams per slice.

For some Americans, white bread, is tthe food is more common and important for its fiber in their diets. In a recent study of food consumption, shows  that the bread is the main source of fiber for children, being white bread  the supplement that provides half the daily fiber intake.

Starches without Digest
The starch portion that is not digested, is known as resistant starch. This type of starch is present in all foods containing starch. The amount of resistant starch varies according to a number of factors such as their origin , and how the food was processed , stored and consumed. It estimated that about 3-7 grams of resistant starch are consumed per day in Europe and Australia. Resistant starch acts as a dietary fiber because it is not digested by the human digestive tract.

Currently, the physiological benefits of resistant starch compared with the dietary fiber, are subject to intense researchs. Commercially there are different ways of resistant starch, prepared from maize with high amylose . Resistant starch ingredients, having a dietary fiber content which is from 30 to 60 % .

Resistant starch products are fine powders, white, they do not affect the color, texture and taste of the baked product at low levels about 10 to 15% of the total flour.Some of the baked products that are in the supermarket with low carbohydrate content may contain resistant starch, among other ingredients. These products are made with high protein and polysaccharides as noncaloric resistant starch and gums.

The formula for calculating the total carbohydrate content, is subtracting dietary fiber from the sugar alcohols ( such as sorbitol , mannitol , etc . ) of total  carbohydrates. Sugars from alcohol, are added to baked goods such as humectants to improve the texture and feel in the mouth. As resistant starch is not digested by the human intestinal tract, does not contribute to the total calories of product.

Healthy Fiber We Should Have In Our Diet-1


Natural Fiber

Healthy fiber, helps keep us in good health, protects us from certain diseases, such as colon cancer, heart disease, constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis. In addition, fiber helps regulate blood glucose levels and bowel function, lowers cholesterol and controls our weight.

Some components of dietary fiber are resistant to digestion . Examples of these are the gums and mucilages as well as cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin,compounds which form the fruits membranes, vegetables and grains.

Recently, starch fragments that remaining undigested, have been designed and are commercially available under the name of resistant starches, and these starches generally processed cereals and when are used in baked goods, dietary fiber content increases dramatically without affecting taste and appearance, which may contribute to increased dietary fiber in population areas that do not have within reach fiber rich foods.

There are researchs that relate the high fiber diet with  prevention of certain chronic and degenerative diseases. A diet rich in fiber also provides natural chemicals, antioxidants , vitamins and micro - nutrients to help proper digestion and keep in  good state of health.

According to the American Dietetic Association, our body needs fiber to function smoothly, we should consume 20-35 grams of fiber a day. the most Americans consume half or about 11 grams of fiber.

Products with fiber and supplements have been on the market for long time and have become very popular as part of the weight loss programs. However, excessive use of fiber supplements can cause serious digestive problems. The healthiest way to consume fiber is of our own  food, and they are the most efficient ways to provide the additional nutrients.

Whole Grain Foods
Researchs in this area have shown that we should eat whole grains rich in fiber such as wheat, corn, oats, rice, because are more complete when compared with refined grain products low in fiber. The consumption of whole grain foods is associated with a good control of our weight.

Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
Our body needs both; soluble fiber as the name says, it is the soluble portion that is formed of gums, mucilages, pectins, which form a gel when mixed with liquid . We found it in bran,rice, oats, barley and maize, white flour,white bread, pasta, etc, and some fruits and vegetables, especially in legumes such as peas and beans.

There are products that contain soluble fiber such as dairy, meat , poultry, fish , fats.Oat bran and other foods that contain soluble fiber lower cholesterol levels in blood, people who eat a low-fat diet, decreasing the risk of heart disease.

Soluble fiber also helps control blood sugar in diabetics and reduces the need for insulin .Diabetics could consume high fiber diets only under medical supervision.

For a man in adulthood with an energy intake of 2630 calories a day , the daily amount of fiber would be 33 grams. These values are calculated relative to an average level of activity.

Inadequate intake: Generally daily fiber intake is insufficient in the majority of the population. Just with a greater contribution of fruit and vegetables in the diet,would approach  to the recommended  type values.

Highest natural fiber foods

What We Need To Know About Types Of Natural Fats


Types Of Fats We Need

To know about types of fats we can start saying that,from a molecular standpoint, oils and fats consist of triglyceride : these are constituted by a fork -shaped structure, called glycerol and three structural elements, called fatty acids.

How fats are classified? There are 3 groups :

1 - Saturated Fats: are found in red meats such as beef, dairy, meat products, sausages, burgers, whole milk and yogurt, cakes and pastries, lard, beef tallow, hard margarines and fats for pastry,coconut oil and palm oil, no beneficial fats if we abuse theirquantity .

2 - Monounsaturated fats : We found them in olive oil and canola oil , avocados ,olives, and some nuts : walnuts, almonds,are beneficial fats.

3 - Polyunsaturated Fats : Essential fatty acids;fatty acids that the body can not produce and therefore have to take them from the diet.

Good fats
Omega 6 fatty= fatty acid Linoleic  are found in seed oils such as sunflower, corn, wheat germ, sesame seeds, walnuts, soybeans, corn and oils.

Fatty acid and Omega 3= Alpha Linolenic : We found in salmon, mackerel , herring , trout (especially rich in omega - 3s ) as also in some flax seeds .If we achieve a balance between the ac. 6 and omega fatty ac. Omega 3 fats will be beneficial.

* Trans fatty acids or hydrogenated fats : are vegetable oils from seeds to be liquid at room temperature they are subjected to an industrial process called hydrogenation , which will change its native molecular form Cis to stable formtrans , ie converting them in solids and so these oils are retained for longer as well as products made with them.

Sample of this is some margarine and fats used in frying and pastry biscuits, bakery products. Its value is in the taste and texture they bring to these foods. Also in the body behave like saturated fats, so they are not beneficial to health.

Low fat diet
Fat sources are generally a combination of the three fats. Therefore we should know that daily energy, 30-35% come from fats or lipids and the distribution must be:

- A 7-8% contributed by saturated fatty acids.

- A 15-18% contributed by monounsaturated fatty acids,mainly oleic acid.

- 7-8% provided by polyunsaturated fatty acids of which at least 3% must be provided by the essential fatty acids.

We should note that fats are the most important source of energy. We generate 9 kcal / g from 1g of fat, more than double of the energy produced by carbohydrates.

Other benefits from fats or lipids are that they are : great source of energy , serve as a vehicle for fat-soluble vitamins: A, D , E, K, as forming element of cell membranes , ie functions reserves , structural, transport , and regulatory .

So to finish we can conclude that we should not fear fat , but taking into account the principles of balance, variety and moderation in  fats consumption that form the basis of a healthy diet .

And If you also know the types of fats and foods that come and read the food labels, we can compensate the consumption of high fat products with other lighter and continue to enjoy the pleasure of eating without problems in health.

You should try to drink at least 8 glasses of pure water a day because it is very healthy for you.

You can accompany with water fast food and other less healthy foods. If you eat French fries and a cheeseburger at a fast food, drinking water is helpful, does not add extra calories in your drink like any soda.

When you have finished eating and drinking, is recommend you do a light exercise. For example, walking for 10 to 15 minutes after eating. Move a bit will speed up your metabolism and this will help to better food digestion and not gain weight.

A simple way to do this is when you eat outside the home, park your car away from where you eat. For example, near a park or at the other end of the restaurant´s parking. So you will be forced to walk to your car.

Great results by making small changes to lose weight

When you eat at home, you can take a walk outside, if the weather allow you. If you do not have much time, try walking around the house or up and down the stairs. You can do some task, like sweeping the kitchen floor or wash clothes after eating to burn some extra calories.

Oxygen Deficit In Endurance Sports


 Oxygen In Endurance Sports

Oxygen In Exercise
In these times of crisis, and in which there is so much talk about economy, popularizing terms such as "public debt", "deficit". Well within the physical activity also going to apply a little about the economy and we are going to talk about oxygen debt and oxygen deficit.

These two parameter are related to the consumption of oxygen, and we can say that they have some importance for resistance's athletes.

Oxygen deficit:
When tarts a type of aerobic exercise of some intensity, the majority of the time there is insufficient energy availability to supply it.

In this way, although in normal situations had not an accumulation of lactate, in the initial moments this can occurs.

Subsequently the production of this compound will be regulating to stand at constant level. As you can justify:

 Oxygen in sports
- The oxygen consumption during the time that occurs shortfall is less than that corresponds to the period of stabilization.

- During the first few minutes the amount of oxygen consumed is lower than that required by the exercise in order to produce the required amount of energy.

- The energy used, while collapses the oxygen deficit, has a partial source and predominantly anaerobic.

- The more intense the exercise in relation to the VO2 max of the athlete, the greater the oxygen deficit and therefore more important anaerobic energy production.

- It has accumulated a deficit of additional oxygen each time that it increases suddenly energy expenditure:final sprint, change of pace and acceleration during a race.

- By the slow adaptation of the transport systems of oxygen, this phenomenon is conditioned by the delay in the  adjustments made by the respiratory and circulatory systems. Will require a few minutes for these systems can soak up and carry the additional oxygen that demand the aerobic energy needs of  muscles that come into action.

One of the ways to alleviate this oxygen deficit is a good heating without involving any previous bioenergetic level aerobic or anaerobic.

Oxygen Debt: When there is a exercise of some intensity, originates a hyperventilation as a result of the increased needs of oxygen. Once the exercise is finished, it is not immediately stops the wheezing, but  the individual continues to breathe with more depth and  frequently than in  resting state.

The effect is caused by the need to supply an additional amount of this element, which is required for the return to a state of rest. To this amount of extra oxygen that must be returned is known as oxygen debt.
