Eating high fiber foods may sound almost as exciting as chewing on carpet, but if that can truly make you feel better then it might be just the mood boost you require.

High fiber foods not only act as mood boosters, they also offer these 5 advantages.

1. High fiber foods are full of some of the most effective nutrients at the lowest cost. Beans, for instance, provide vitamins and minerals such as calcium, potassium, Vitamin C, and folate (which is exceptionally favorable for pregnancy nutrition). Add in several grams of fiber per serving and these high fiber foods are especially advantageous for the body.

2. High Fiber foods are better for the digestive system. When your body is not accustomed to taking in much fiber it may take a while to work into it. However, consuming at least twenty-five grams of fiber regularly usually produces smoother elimination of waste as food moves through the intestines without pressure. The fiber takes in lots of water, which creates softer stools and can alleviate constipation.

3. High fiber foods, especially those rich in soluble fiber, offer a path to natural weight loss without expensive diet plans or medications. You see, soluble fiber regulates metabolism and helps to moderate healthy blood sugar levels. High fiber foods also make you feel full, but they ordinarily contain fewer calories than other selections on the menu. It is key to note that high fiber foods have proven to be especially helpful for calorie reduction in humans. So, loading up on high fiber foods instead of junk is a sound way to give yourself the gift of natural weight loss. The combination of normal blood sugar with less weight is a life changing, mood boosting experience that every person can relish.

4. Soluble fiber foods such as oats, rye, and barley are known to have a positive effect on lowering unhealthy cholesterol. In “You, the Owner's Manual” by Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. the doctor points to a report that “…showed that a 10-gram increase in the daily intake of fiber decreases the risk of heart attack by 29 percent…"

Dr. Oz mentions that the positive effects of consuming more high fiber foods will happen "almost immediately. " The fiber helps transport stuff through your digestive system—including toxins—very quickly. He continues to articulate, "Bile, when it gets absorbed through the bowel, turns into cholesterol. So when you take a lot of fiber in your diet, you suck the bile out of you, and your cholesterol drops automatically. It also gets rid of sugar, which helps the diabetics. And it's a great tool if you want to lose weight because it makes you feel full."

5. Eating high fiber foods makes for smooth moves, and that can boost anyone's mood. When discussing fiber, it invariably comes down to the fecal frequency. Of course, everyone feels better when they can eliminate without straining. No one wants to be found dead in the bathroom with their pants around their ankles.

When you take in the recommended 25-35 grams of high fiber foods each day, you will be so regular that you'll be able to set your watch by the time of your bowel movements. This regular schedule will help you live a long and happy life.
