Fiber Fights Belly Fat and Disease
by Mark Rosenberg, M.D.
Let me tell you a little about why we should be concerned about reducing belly fat. It
is the most dangerous type of fat to have as it surrounds all your major organs like
the liver, pancreas, small and large intestines, and heart which can cause fatty liver
disease, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and stroke. In addition, after age 40, belly
fat can also contribute to your risk of developing Alzheimer's dementia.

It's important to know that belly fat is an equal opportunity health problem for both
men and women. However, men have the unfair advantage in gaining weight around
their bellies where woman tend to gain weight all over. For that reason, men are at
higher risk for the diseases associated with that spare tire. So, if you are overweight,
you need to:


To answer the question from above here's an easy method to determine if the
amount of belly fat you have is too much.


How Fiber Helps Rid Belly Fat

Now that you know if you have too much belly fat, I'd like to briefly explain to you
how eating more fiber can help you get rid of it. First, let me tell you what fiber is and
how it fights disease associated with belly fat:




The National Cancer Institute recommends that you eat between 25-35 grams of
fiber a day. You must read labels on food packages to determine how much fiber is in
the food that you eat.

As we age, if we don't stay physically active, or if we consume less fiber than is
recommended, we contribute to gaining belly fat and putting ourselves at risk for
disease. But, the good news is, research shows that if you increase your fiber intake,
along with your exercise level, you'll go a long way in achieving a healthy body
weight, decreasing unhealthy belly fat and the risk of disease along with it.

In my busy practice, one of the
most common complaints I hear
is, "Dr. Rosenberg, how can I get
rid of all this belly fat?" Well, I'd
like to share with you some
exciting results of a new study out
of the University of Southern
California. The study found that by
just adding 6 grams more of fiber
to your diet everyday you can
shrink your belly fat significantly.
In the participants studied, it was
found that belly fat increased by a
whopping 21% in those who ate
less fiber, and decreased by 4% in
those who ate more fiber.
