Soluble Fiber Cuts Belly Fat

Soluble Fiber Cuts Belly Fat Deep visceral belly fat is more dangerous to your health than the subcutaneous fat that accumulates under your skin. Even thin people with little obvious subcutaneous fat can build up visceral fat if they don't eat right or get enough exercise. A study recently published in the journal Obesity suggests that increased consumption of soluble fiber coupled with more physical activity can make a significant dent in visceral fat.

Researchers found that every daily 10 gram increase in soluble fiber intake reduced visceral fat by 3.7% over a 5-year period. An increase in moderate activity contributed to a 7.4% decrease in visceral fat accumulation.

True Strength Moment: Moderate exercise is something anyone can do and includes activities like gardening, mowing the law and taking a brisk walk. If you're engaging in regular intense exercise at the gym and are still having a hard time cutting belly fat, adding more fiber to your diet could be the catalyst that helps you meet that low body fat goal. The general recommendation for adults is 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day.
