Fiber: The Health Benefits
If you’re like the average person, you probably only get 11 grams of fiber a day, despite the recommendation for between 20 and 30 grams daily.
Eating more fiber can make you more “regular,” but it has other health benefits as well:
A fiber-rich diet protects a woman’s heart.
A fiber-rich diet contributes to a healthy pregnancy.
A fiber-rich diet may prevent cancer.
According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may prevent certain types of cancer, particularly colon, esophageal, kidney, and pancreatic cancer.Eating foods rich in fiber is recommended during pregnancy, and a recent study of the diets of 1,500 pregnant women showed that those who ate 21.2 grams of fiber a day were 72 percent less likely to develop preeclampsia (pregnancy-related high blood pressure) than women who ate 11.9 grams or less daily.
Adding just 5 grams of fiber, or two slices of whole wheat bread, to their daily diet cut the risk of preeclampsia by 14 percent.An analysis of health information from 72,000 women who participated in the 18-year long Nurses’ Health Study showed that women who ate a diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits (all sources of fiber) had a reduced risk of heart disease compared to women who ate less healthfully.Some good sources of fiber to try:
Fruits and vegetables with the skin on (well-cleaned, of course)
Potatoes with skin
Beans such as lentils or black beans
Whole grains such as oats, barley, or bulgur wheat (just remember to stick to the correct serving size to keep your calorie count down)
As an added advantage its Good for your SKIN and Keeps you Slim !!!! So try it out everyday
My left eye – top eye lid has been twitching for a week now … its annoying and now its a concern for me. Also I heard about the superstitions so here is a gist :
Left Eye Twitching Superstition – China: An old Chinese saying about twitching eyelids says that “the twitching of the left eyelid indicates the coming of good fortune; while the right one is a warning about the coming bad luck.” So while a twitch in the left eye indicates good luck or even a major gold rush, a twitching right eye is considered a bad omen which foretells of ill luck headed your way! In women the tables are turned as a twitching right eye signifies good luck while a twitching left one is considered a bad prognostic. Similarly, there are many assumptions of eyelid twitching causes and superstitions where a twitch in the lower left eyelid means you can expect to cry soon or someone is gossiping about you.
Left Eye Twitching Superstition – India: The Indian left eye twitching superstition is the reverse of the Chinese version. So in India a twitching right eye is definitely a good sign while the left eye twitching is considered inauspicious. At times, eye twitching can also be based on the gender as well, so while left eye twitching is considered good for women it might be a bad sign for men.
Left Eye Twitching Superstition – Parts of Africa: In certain parts of Africa, twitching in your lower eyelid signals that you will soon be shedding tears or when the upper eyelid twitches, it’s a sign you will meet someone unexpectedly. The Nigerians also follow the Chinese version of the left eye twitching being considered as bad.
Left Eye Twitching Superstition – Hawaii: In Hawaii twitching eyes can signal the arrival of a stranger, or a mourning in the offing.
In addition to these faith and beliefs, there are some other versions of the left eye twitching superstition where a constant twinging of your left eye might signal a demise in the family or the twitching of the right may signal an impending birth.
“When I was in my darkest place, I thought the world was so evil. But now, seeing that there is good in the world … I’m gonna do my best to make this world bearable for everyone,” Smith said.
Smith is seen here at a family function as a teenager. He dropped out of high school when he was 17. He says he couldn’t take the emotional abuse from other kids and retreated into his parents house. “I’ve had like sticks and stones and dog feces … thrown at me and [I've been] spit on … that makes you feel, you know, not human at all.” (Courtesy David Smith)
In July 2003, at the age of 26, David Smith met trainer Chris Powell for the first time. This handshake was the beginning of Smith’s transformation — Powell started him on a workout plan and a schedule that included healthy eating days followed by cheat days. (Courtesy David Smith)
