Supplements #8: FIBER-RICH FOODS include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

FIBER-RICH FOODS include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. While these are all good foods, you should get most of your fiber from fruits and vegetables since there are only 50 Calories in 100 grams of a typical vegetable and 70 Calories per 100 grams of a typical fruit. Many of these fruit and vegetable portions provide 5 grams of fiber per serving. Typical grains will be higher in calories and up to 250 Calories per 100 grams with 10 grams of fiber. A great way to be sure you get your 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day is to have a fiber supplement with a glass of water or put your fiber supplement in your protein shake. Be sure to have 6 to 8 glasses of water, tea, or coffee per day. Soluble fiber will help with weight management by slowing stomach emptying and feeding healthy bacteria in the intestines which produce fatty acids that can help control hunger. If you also meditate, get quality sleep, and exercise daily you will have a Happy and healthy gut!! Remember, 80% Nutrition and 20% Exercise is the best prescription for Balanced Nutrition and a Healthy Active Lifestyle!! #drdavidheber #fiber #gut health #weightlossjourney #microbiome #ibs
