How Fiber Can Help You

How Can Fiber Help You? In people with diabetes, fiber — particularly soluble fiber, or fiber that breaks down more easily once consumed, — can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels. A healthy diet that includes insoluble fiber may also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. High-fiber foods tend to be more filling than low-fiber foods, so you’re likely to eat less and stay satisfied longer. And high-fiber foods tend to take longer to eat and to be less “energy-dense,” which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food.

If you aren’t getting enough fiber each day, you may need to boost your intake. Good choices include:

  • Whole-grain products
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Beans, peas and other legumes
  • Nuts and seeds

Refined or processed foods — such as canned fruits and vegetables, pulp-free juices, white bread and pasta, and non-whole-grain cereals — are lower in fiber. The grain-refining process removes the outer coat (bran) from the grain, which lowers its fiber content. Enriched foods have some of the B vitamins and iron added back after processing, but not the fiber.

Whole foods rather than fiber supplements are generally better. Fiber supplements — such as Metamucil, Citrucel, and FiberCon — don’t provide the variety of fibers, vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial nutrients that foods do.

Another way to get more fiber is to eat foods, such as cereal, granola bars, yogurt and ice cream, with fiber added. The added fiber usually is labeled as “inulin” or “chicory root.” Some people complain of gassiness after eating foods with added fiber.

High-fiber foods are good for your health. But adding too much fiber too quickly can promote intestinal gas, abdominal bloating and cramping. Increase fiber in your diet gradually over a few weeks. This allows the natural bacteria in your digestive system to adjust to the change.

Calabasas Is Rich With History

Though not formally incorporated until 1991, Calabasas has a history that dates back much further.

It’s All In A Name

The story of how Calabasas got its name goes back to one of the first settlers in the late 1700s. According to town legend, Juan Bautista de Anza was traveling from Arizona to San Francisco. On his journey, he passed through what is now known as Calabasas. One of the wagons he was traveling with was carrying pumpkins, and when the wagon overturned, the spill of pumpkins resulted in the area’s first pumpkin patch the following spring. The name of the town was taken from the Spanish word for pumpkin – Calabaza. The city of Calabasas continues to hold a Pumpkin Festival each year in Juan Bautista de Anza Park.
