The 30/30 rule: Unlocking the power of fibre

The 30/30 Rule

When it comes to nutrition, we often hear about carbohydrates, proteins, and fats taking centre stage. But there's a fourth macronutrient that deserves the spotlight: fibre. Fibre plays a vital role in keeping our bodies healthy, especially when it comes to maintaining a strong gut. Surprisingly most people don't get enough fibre in their diets. The recommended intake is 30g per day from at least 30 different plant sources each week. 

Look - we get it - it’s easier said than done. So, let's dive into the importance of fibre; learn more about this 30/30 rule; and how Deeply can help you nail your daily requirement.


King of the Gut: The vital role of Fibre 

We’re total nerds when it comes to science. And the latest scientific research proves the pivotal role of fibre in promoting a healthy gut. 

It keeps our poos regular, prevents uncomfortable constipation, and supports overall digestive health. On top of that, fibre lowers cholesterol and promotes a feeling of fullness - making it easier to manage your weight. Certain fibres also act as a prebiotic fuel for the bacteria in your digestive system, providing even more health benefits such as improving your immune system, supporting your skin and bone health as well as helping to regulate your blood sugar levels.


The 30/30 Fibre Rule

Meeting your 30g fibre goal per day is key, but did you know that it's equally important to ensure it’s coming from a diversity of sources? That's the 30/30 fibre rule: Consume 30g of fibre a day from at least 30 different plants per week. Why? Because different sources of fibre feed different microbes in your gut. By including a variety of fibre-rich foods in your diet, you’re serving your gut a buffet of fibre which will encourage a variety of bacteria to grow. The result? A wide range of health promoting chemicals, neurotransmitters and vitamins that are essential for a healthy gut and overall well-being.
