Wondering why you need to eat more fiber?

Do you know why exactly fiber is so important?

Dietary fiber is mostly known for its role in regulating bowel movements, but the health benefits of this indigestible carbohydrate go far beyond your digestive tract.

From a reduced risk of chronic diseases to cancer prevention, there’s so much good that fiber can do.

Unfortunately, research shows that only 5% of us are eating enough high-fiber foods.

If you want to get motivated to eat more fiber, consider the following health benefits and you'll know exactly why you need to eat more fiber.

1. Healthy Body Weight

One of the most important reasons why you need to eat more fiber is because it helps you maintain a healthy weight.

I often recommend high-fiber foods like whole grains, leafy greens, fruit, and legumes, for weight management.2

The fiber in these foods can keep you feeling fuller for longer by slowing down digestion.

High-fiber foods are low in calories, which also helps with weight management.

Since fiber inhibits the absorption of nutrients like sugar and fat, it is much easier to lose weight on a high-fiber diet.

The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults eat between 25 and 38 grams a day, for optimal health and weight.
