High Fiber Diet
High Fiber Diet
A high fiber diet requires two things: a) that you consume foods high in fiber and b) that you supplement your daily fiber intake with a fiber supplement.
A product or a food item can be labeled “High Fiber” when it contains more than 5g of fiber per serving. But it is important to note that processed foods sold as “high in fiber” are not the same, as fiber is destroyed during processing.
Benefits of High Fiber foods include the prevention of constipation, lowering cholesterol, weight loss management and many more. Also check out our list of low-fiber foods and replace them with the following foods if possible.
