high fibre diet is back in vogue

High fibre foods to boost your intake, according to the NHS:

Start your day with a high-fibre breakfast cereal like Weetabix, Shredded wheat, porridge or bran flakes
Opt for wholemeal or granary bread - rye bread is particularly high in fibre - as well as wholegrains, like wholewheat pasta, bulgur wheat and brown rice
Choose skin-on potatoes like baked potato or new potatoes
Eat plenty of beans and pulses, like lentils and chickpeas. Add them to stews, curries or salads
Snack on fresh fruit, celery and carrot sticks, rye crackers, oatcakes, nuts and seeds
Add more veg to your meals

While everyone has been harping on about the benefits of complex high fat, low carb eating regimes, new research suggests that a much simpler approach might actually be the answer to living longer.

In a major new study, conducted over almost 40 years, published in The Lancet, a high-fibre diet was associated with reduced risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and cancer.

Dietary sources of fibre include fresh fruit and veg, whole grains, pulses and nuts. Foods like lentils, kidney beans, artichokes and avocados, are particularly rich in fibre, which can aid digestion and prevent constipation, while also making you feel fuller for longer.

Those recommendations for a healthy diet are very good. I was recently diagnosed as having stage two diabetes and for the first time in my life I had to educate myself on what was a healthy diet. Foods high in fats and chlorestoral had to be avoided. While porridge is a healthy breakfast it only provides about 100 calories. An active man needs about 2500 calories a day. I was drinking maybe a half dozen pints of beer a day and a couple bottles of wine a week. I've reduced my alcohol intake by about 90% and am likely to reduce that further. It took a serious health concern to awaken me to the importance of a proper and safe diet. Good luck to those who seek to extend their life and improve their health by educating themselves about their diet and acquiring the discipline to follow through.

I admire anyone who changes their diet in the name of better health , all be it in many cases too little , too late , but this years advice is next years trash .
I mean you can eat lentils, beans , nuts , whatever , and you may well live a little longer , but it will certainly feel like you are living forever and ever .
I would not give up the foods i like for a longer life , and i may have that life shortened , but i will die with a smile on my face and a contented soul .
