Generous fiber intake lowers blood glucose levels, reduces insulin needs and improves blood glucose control. An HCF Nutrition Plan helps control diabetes with diet rather than medicine by reducing (for Type 1) or eliminating (for Type 2) the need for medicines or insulin.
Foods rich in soluble fiber, such as oat products and beans, lower blood cholesterol. An HCF Nutrition Plan lowers blood cholesterol and other blood fats by as much as 30%, reducing the risk for heart disease by 60%.
High Blood Pressure
High Fiber intake lowers blood pressure 10% or more. Since the HCF Nutrition Plan emphasizes unprocessed foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, it is low in sodium and high in potassium, calcium, magnesium. Sodium contributes to high blood pressure in many individuals.
High fiber diets promote weight loss and increases satiety. Dr. Anderson's successful weight control approach combines an HCF Nutrition Plan with regular exercise, fostering lifelong weight management.
People with high fiber intake experience less heart disease than those with low fiber intake. An HCF Nutrition Plan protects against heart disease by reducing risk factors such as high blood fats, high blood pressure and obesity.
