Hydrophilic Foods: How Do They Help You Lose Weight? If you’re interested in weight loss, and hunger is your main enemy, you should take a look at hydrophilic foods. Hydrophilic means ‘Water-Loving’. Food that loves water? Sort of. It refers to the ability of natural substances inside the foods that soak up water, or cling to water.
The two main types are ‘Pectins’ and ‘Mucilage’ or ‘Soluble Fiber’. Each one comes from plants, such as fruits, nuts, or seeds. But how does the ability to cling to water help you lose weight? There are actually several interesting ways it works, one of which you can watch happen, right before your eyes.
Fit Fitness Into Your Busy Day – Some of us are busy, some of us are very busy, and some of us are so busy we don’t even know which way is up. Sound familiar?

Food Intolerance And Weight Loss – According to some experts, the culprit may not be what is contained in the foods themselves, but your own body’s reaction to these foods causing water retention. This reaction is known as food intolerance.
Food allergies are typically easy to detect as the body often reacts with extreme and even deadly symptoms when the allergen is eaten. Food intolerance, by contrast, is much more subtle and may take long periods of repeatedly eating a given food to manifest itself.
Food intolerance can have several causes such as lack of a particular digestive enzyme or sensitivity to additives in processed foods. Experts estimate that as many as one in every 10 people suffer from some type of food intolerance, and a study in the UK found the figure to be as high as 45%.
