According to the Institute of Medicine it is recommended that MEN consume about 38 grams of fiber per day and WOMEN- 25 grams daily.
However, the average man and woman in the United States each currently consumes less than half that amount.
I like to think that I am better than the average American when it comes to my eating habits. I do my best to eat whole grains and lots of veggies.
I have been tracking my fiber intake the last few days and it turns out that although I may be slightly above the average, I am still falling short of getting the recommended amount of fiber in my diet on a daily basis.
Do you get enough FIBER?
I challenge you to do a fiber inventory.
Focusing on fiber intake will help you consume a much healthier diet. If you are filling yourself up with fiber rich foods you are going to feel more full and satisfied, and won't have room for all the extra calories that you don't need.
