Easy Ways to Sneak More Fiber Into Your Diet

September 16, 2014 4:10 pm

Fiber helps to prevent chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, and it even aids in weight loss because it makes you feel more full after eating. If all of these things sound good to you, check out these common foods to help incorporate more fiber into your diet.

  1. Pears. One small pear packs an impressive five grams of fiber, and it’s tasty, too. Eat one whole for a handheld snack while you’re on the go, or slice one up and add it to a summery salad.
  2. Oatmeal. Your favorite healthy breakfast food is filled with soluble fiber. Eating fiber-packed oatmeal everyday can help you lose weight and lower your cholesterol.
  3. Raspberries. Seed-filled fruits, like raspberries, boast about eight grams of fiber per cup. Eat them alone or sprinkle some fresh on top of your favorite Greek yogurt.
  4. Artichokes. Although artichokes don’t seem like the likeliest source of fiber, they’re actually packed with a whopping 10 grams each. One artichoke also only contains 65 calories, so it makes a great way to lose weight and consume more fiber.
  5. Whole-wheat noodles. Instead of reaching for your usual spaghetti at the grocery store, opt for a whole-wheat pasta instead. One cup offers six grams of fiber, which is twice the amount of regular pasta.
