Fight off Diabetes with Fantastic Fibre

Fight off diabetes with fantastic fibre

5 tips to get the most benefits from fibre.

Nearly all health experts agree that fibre is fantastic for your health. Eating fibre-rich foods can improve your digestion, lower your cholesterol levels, help with weight loss, and keep your blood sugar levels more stable. 

If you struggle with diabetes you’d want to eat lots of fibre. Although fibre is classified as a carbohydrate, it will pass through your digestive system without raising your blood sugar levels. In fact, fibre can help lower your levels. 

Did you know? 

According to research published in PubMed Central, increasing your intake of dietary fibre by two servings of whole-grain products each day might lower your risk for type 2 diabetes by as much as 21%.


Fibre theory

Dietary fibre is a type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods.

There are two kinds of fibre: Insoluble fibre which cannot dissolve in water and soluble fibre which dissolves in water. 

Insoluble fibre cannot be digested at all.

 It passes through your digestive system pretty much “as is”. 

So how can insoluble fibre be beneficial? The consumption of insoluble fibre increases the water content within your stool, This leads to a softer consistency and helping your food not to be clogged up in your intestines. 

This type of fibre can boost overall intestinal health and regularity. In addition, it can improve one’s sensitivity to insulin, which could potentially lower the risk of diabetes.

Soluble fibre has the ability to dissolve and create a gel that can potentially aid in digestion. 

Such fibre can also bring down cholesterol and sugar levels in blood, as well as promote glucose control – making it great fibre for diabetes. 

Soluble fibre keeps other carbs from being absorbed too quickly and turning into glucose. All of this together can help to reduce your risk of developing diabetes.


Fibre is classified as a carbohydrate, but you don’t have to be wary of eating lots of it. 

You can deduct the fibre amount from the total carbohydrate count of a product to see how many sugar-producing carbs you are actually dealing with. 

This is called net carbs.


Practical Tips

Follow these five tips to get the most benefits from fibre.

  1. Eat foods highest in the ratio of fibre carbs and regular carbs.

The following foods are fibre superfoods:


The amount of total carbs and fibre carbs in flaxseed are exactly the same. 

It is rich in both soluble and insoluble fibre, giving it a powerful nutritional punch. 

Flaxseed are used in a lot of low-carb recipes. You can make your own low-carb bagels or muffins with flaxseed. You can also add flaxseed to a smoothie or in your soup. 


Spinach is a highly beneficial source of dietary fibre, as well as many essential vitamins and minerals. It is an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fibre.


On average, one raw avocado contains about 9.6g of fibre. 

Avocados are also incredibly versatile and easy to incorporate into meals. Try adding them to sandwiches and salads, topping toast with avocado slices, or turning them into delicious guacamole.


Blackberries are a great source of dietary fibre. Additionally, blackberries are a great source of vitamins, including vitamins C, K, and A.


Bran is a popular high-fibre food as it is low in calories and high in fibre, helping to regulate the digestive system and make a person feel fuller for longer. 

Studies have shown that people who eat bran on a regular basis have lower levels of LDL cholesterol and better colon health.


  1. Be wary of high-fibre food labels

Just because a food is marketed as a “high fibre” product does not mean that it is low in net carbs. Cereals, for example, may be rich in fibre but might still have a high net carb count with lots of added sugar. Read the nutritional information before buying a product. 


  1. Drink lots of fluids with fibre-rich foods.

 Drinking plenty of water will help you see the benefits of eating fibre.


  1. Watch out for side-effects.

You will unlikely consume too much fibre as most of us eat processed foods that are not fibre rich. 

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends consuming about 14 grams (g) of fibre for every 1,000 calories you consume daily.

You can follow these recommendations for your total dietary fibre, which includes both soluble and insoluble types, published by Mayo Clinic

men, age 50 and under

38 grams per day

women, age 50 and under

25 grams per day

men, over 50

30 grams per day

women, over 50

21 grams per day


If you are eating too much fibre or experiencing gas, pain, and abdominal bloating, consult your doctor. 


  1. Be wary of fibre-supplements for kids. 

Children can become reliant on fibre supplements, so it is important to talk to your pediatrician before giving these supplements to your children. 



Eating fibre-rich foods can do wonders for your blood sugar levels. Even though fibre is a carbohydrate, it won’t raise your blood sugar levels.  You can deduct the fibre amount from the total carbohydrate count of a product to see how many sugar-producing carbs you are actually dealing with. Foods like flaxseed, avocados and bran are great choices if you are looking for fibre for diabetes.
