Fall for Fiber
Updated: Nov 24, 2021
We know that increasing fiber in our diet is a good idea. Actually, it’s a GREAT idea. The two forms of fiber; soluble and insoluble, provide their own distinctive properties. It’s kind of like having two children; you love them both but they each have their own unique personality. In general terms, soluble fibers are great at helping your gut create prebiotics. Prebiotics provide food for your healthy gut microbes. Insoluble fiber provides bulk to the stool and appears to help food pass more quickly through the stomach and intestines.
Attached you will find some great Fall foods to help increase your fiber intake. The goal for women is to consume at least 25 grams of fiber per day and 38 grams of fiber per day for men. BUT it would be even better to increase that amount (slowly) up to 50-60 grams.
