Since February is National Fiber Focus Month I thought I’d compile a quick post about some interesting articles on fiber. Fiber is a very important part of our diet and does a whole host of things to keep us healthy: removes toxins, creates constipation, keeps us full and loads more.
The average person should be getting between 25 grams (for a woman) – 38 grams (for a man) per day. However, the sad fact remains that the average person is only consuming about 15 grams of fiber per day. In my opinion this is happening because we aren’t taking the time to eat proper healthy food like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains but instead we are living off of fast foods that have very little nutritional value. So, if you love your tummy and want to stay healthy you should really pay attention to these articles and do more to get some extra fiber into your diet.
