The progressive increase in abdominal fat, the kind that also coats and clogs your internal organs, is highly associated with disease risk in overweight people. A human study over a five-year period shows that soluble fiber, especially when combined with exercise, can lower the accumulation of this dangerous type of fat.
For every 10 grams of increased daily soluble fiber intake there was 3.7% decrease in accumulation of visceral fat. If the person also exercised regularly, the decrease was 7.4%.
This is such a simple point. Eat more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Taking a supplemental form of soluble fiber is an easy and effective way to boost your intake. Following such nutrition basics can pay large dividends towards reducing your accumulation of abdominal fat over time, as well as reducing your risk for cardiovascular disease. This is why the FDA allows a risk reduction health claim on soluble fiber products.
