Fiber – Does it really make a difference?
High fiber foods are beneficial for your health!
Here are four ways fiber can benefit your health.
1-Less constipation: regular and softer bowel movements to help with overall health and bloating.
2-Faster intestines: the better your intestines work, the better communication within your body that you are full.
3-Cleaner colon: lower your risk of colon cancer.
4-Sugar is absorbed slower: the slower the better so that your glucose levels do not spike and fall drastically.
It is suggested that men get 35-38 grams and women intake 22-25 grams a day.
See how many grams of fiber you are getting on a normal day.
Then on the next day and going forward, see what you can do to get closer to the recommended number.
