It is important to include fiber in your diet. Fiber benefits many of your body’s functions, including improving digestion, helping maintain blood sugar and weight, and lowering your risks of some diseases.
Incorporating more fiber into your diet can be as simple as having a bowl of cereal or yogurt for breakfast. You can also consider switching to whole grains and increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables, which are packed with minerals, vitamins, and fiber.
For more information on the benefits of fiber, how much fiber you should have in your diet, and tips for getting more fiber, refer to Mayo Clinic’s Nutrition and Healthy Eating article.
