The nutritionist explained how dangerous the overabundance of fiber in the diet

Excessive consumption of fiber causes increased gas, bloating and diarrhea. Dietary fiber should be consumed in moderation, told the correspondent of “Rosbalt” dietitian Artur Moiseenko.

“As such, the norms of consumption of fiber does not exist, because no studies on this matter have been conducted, and no it is not normalized. But, from my own experience, I would say that the benefits of fiber can be obtained only if you eat it in small portions, — said the doctor. — By the way, during my years of practice no one has ever eaten this amount of fiber in pure form to manifest all of these symptoms of indigestion. But in any case, the true rule: everything is poison and everything is medicine. Important dose”.

According to a nutritionist, if the person eats a balanced, and in the ration there is a sufficient quantity of vegetables to add to meals extra tissue makes no sense.

“But if the diet is dominated by meat products as a garnish — a potato, rice or pasta, we can recommend a wheat or rye bran as a product, rich in fiber. Besides bran contain large amounts of vegetable protein,” advises the nutritionist.

Artur Moiseenko added that if the diet is high in fiber, it is necessary to increase fluid intake to balance intestinal tract.
