Health Improvements Today with this one Thing…..

fiber

There are many ways to gain true health and there are many things available today that claim better health but actually do not.  One good rule of thumb is to go back a few hundred years and look at how they did it.  Because of the huge impact technology has had on our food industry, our health is suffering.  Processed food is, well, processed.  And in this unfolding, we are not getting the components that we need for thriving health.  These foods are stripped of fiber and many nutrients, which usually means a lack of flavor.  This is why they add sugars, salt, artificial flavors, colors, and fats.

One health improving component is fiber.  The lack of fiber can lead to a multitude of health issues and diseases, such as weight gain, bloating, constipation, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, cancer, having a toxic body, and more. 

Fiber acts like a scrub brush or a mop cleaning up and regulating all of the excess remains that our body doesn’t need.  This is a VERY important part of the digestive process that is needed for proper health.

The average American eats about 10 grams of fiber per day.  Truck drivers don’t have the conveniences that the average American does.  They have a much greater challenge to get quality foods than practically any other profession.  Could it even be less?  It takes a minimum of 35 grams of fiber to support good health.  WOW! That is a whopping difference. 

Imagine: weight loss, no digestive issues, normal blood sugar, cholesterol, and normal blood pressure, ridding yourself of toxins, and feeling great!

For lasting results there must be lasting change.  I urge you to ditch the processed foods and become fiber aware.  It will make the difference you’ve been looking for.
