Getting our heads around fibre seems to be very difficult to understand because we have too many thoughts. Too many different lists and too many chores, blah, blah blah. It really is essential for us to address the fibre issue because this is a crucial way our body rids toxins. For the purpose of this blog let’s say the average person needs 30 grams of fibre per day. However, as you know we are able to accurately test the amount your specific body needs. We do this via muscle testing because this gives you your most accurate reading.
Why consume fibre?
- Fibre keeps us regular. So good because our bowel removes our toxins.
- Helps us regulate our cholesterol levels.
- Keeps us fuller, longer. Bonus right!
- Cleans our digestive tracts the same way a broom cleans our floors.
- In general high fibre foods contain many other nutritional needs. (Be wary of processed foods)
- Fibre helps us loose weight while we just feel cleaner.
- and many more..
Where do I Start?
Firstly, I’d recommend doing some research. What is your base point? How much fibre are you consuming each day. Is it 10 grams? Maybe 15 grams? Whatever it is make a mental note. Now… increase this amount slowly until you reach your 30 grams per day.
It would be wise it increase you water intake as you increase you fibre intake thus helping move things smoothly through your digestive system.
Some ways to increase your fibre is just to add foods you consider a treat from a fibre list.

Practical Ways to Start Today
I love to eat vegetables. I feel like they keep me grounded somehow. Time can definitely be my enemy between working then kids and family. For this reason we need to work smart.
Veges on the Go!
Buy your weekly vegetable shop. Get home and before stacking them in the fridge, chop them up. Stir fry style. Then place them in large sealed containers – tupperware or the like. And place them in the fridge. It is much more inviting to have them ready to go with a 5 minute cook-up and your prep time is way less. From here add some soy sauce or tamari, chilli flakes and your favourite nuts/seeds from you fibre list above.
