We need at least 25 grams of fiber a day. To add more fiber to your diet, here are a few quick tips.
- Select breads made with WHOLE grains. Read the ingredient list. Whole wheat, oats, and rye are a few examples. Be sure the lookout for the word "whole" before the grain is listed. If it's multi-grain bread, made sure each of the grains are whole grain.
- Eat more fruits and vegetables.
- If possible, add legumes. This includes beans.
