Losing weight can be a challenge—and shedding belly fat can be even more difficult. Is there a simple and effective way to get rid of stubborn fat? The answer is yes. Adding more soluble fiber to your diet can help reduce belly fat.

Two Types of Dietary Plant Fibers

There are two types of plant fiber: soluble and insoluble—both are valuable for good health.

Insoluble fiber cannot be broken down by water and is directly excreted from the body. If consumed in excess it can cause diarrhea. Foods with insoluble plant fiber include fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, wheat bran, and whole grains.

Soluble fiber dissolves in water and becomes a gel-like substance in the colon and is found in foods such as oats, barley, legumes, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, and psyllium husks.

Some foods contain both soluble and insoluble fibers.

The Role of Soluble Plant Fiber

Soluble fiber plays an important role in our digestive system and significantly impacts our health and weight.

Soluble plant fiber aids in weight loss by absorbing water in our digestive system and expanding—creating a feeling of fullness that helps control appetite.

Soluble plant fiber also nourishes the microbiome in our gut. Our microbiome exists in various body parts, including the respiratory tract, reproductive tract, mouth, nose, and digestive system, with the highest concentration in the gut. These microorganisms include protozoa, fungi, viruses, and bacteria, with bacteria being the most abundant with more than 100 trillion of them stored in our bodies.
