4 fabulous reasons to fill up on fiber
Did you know that fiber slows the rate at which your body digests carbohydrates? That means eating fiber-rich foods at meals and snacks can also help keep your blood sugars stabilized. Dietary fiber comes from parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. There are actually two different types of dietary fiber.

Insoluble fiber (found in whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts and many vegetables) increases the movement of material through your digestive system. Soluble fiber (found in oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium) is more important for people with diabetes. It dissolves in water to form a gel-like material and can help lower cholesterol levels. Ingestion of large amounts of soluble fiber (approximately 50 grams per day) appears to improve blood glucose levels. However, it is unknown if regularly consuming that much fiber each day is realistic for most people.

Currently, experts do not suggest that people with diabetes consume more daily fiber than the general public (25-35 grams per day), but aiming for that level—and choosing soluble fiber sources when you can—may be a boon to your diabetes self-care plan.
