The under- consumption of fiber has become a major public health concern. Fiber is essential to a well-balanced, nutritious diet. Currently, Americans only consume about 15g of fiber per day. The recommendation for female and male adults 50 years and younger is 25 g/day and 38 g/day, respectively. You may be asking yourself, why does this matter? Fiber has been shown to improve mood, increase satiety while reducing fatigue, aid in weight loss, enhance blood sugar control, increase digestive health, lower cholesterol, and decrease the risk of gastrointestinal cancers as well as coronary heart disease. Want to increase your intake? You can start by substituting refined grains with 100% whole grains, enjoying at least 2.5 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruits each day, and aiming for products that contain a minimum of 5g/day of fiber per serving. Fiber’s benefits will not disappoint! If you were not a fan before, you will be soon. Get healthy! Get fit! Get started!
