Find out all the good things fiber can do for you
Getting enough fiber is something people don't think about all that often. Let's face it: Most of us haven't a clue how many grams of fiber we're taking in on a typical day.
And guess what? We're not even close to meeting the recommended intakes of 20-35 grams a day for healthy adults (25 daily grams for those eating 2,000 calories per day, for example, and 30 grams for 2,500 calories a day) according to the American Dietetic Association. The mean fiber intake in the U.S. is 14-15 grams a day.
We get fiber from unprocessed foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and beans, and most Americans aren't exactly loading their plates with these items. You'd be hard pressed to find any of them in your average fast-food value meal.
And Americans are definitely eating more prepared and processed foods. Consumption of food prepared away from home increased from 18% of our total calories to 32% of total calories between 1977 and 1996. All this "away" food not only has more calories and fat per meal than home-prepared foods, but also less fiber (on a per-calorie basis).
Looking for a New Year’s resolution you can stick with?
January is National Fiber Focus Month.
Fiber is not only heart healthy, but also has blood sugar and cancer fighting benefits. It keeps you FULL...LONGER! Full people are less hungry – and less hunger means you’ll eat less unnecessary calories that lead to or sustain unwanted weight gain.
What are the best ways to bulk up with fiber?

On the first episode for 2016 we're joined by clinical nutritionist and leading autoimmune expert Jessica Flanigan to talk about the hugely underappreciated healing powers of love.
Author of "The Loving Diet", Jessica believes that healing from any condition or situation of poor health requires nutritional healing, structured medical care and an awakening process of tapping into the healing powers within.
We spoke about:
- How to turn 'stumbling blocks' into 'stepping stones' - and continue to attract opportunities into your life
- The mindset of mindfulness and how it fundamentally changes your brain for the better
- Meditation and the ancient Hawaiian technique of Ho'Oponoponopono, and how they help us when everything unravels
