Fiber is an Important Part of Your Daily Diet!

Fiber is an Important Part of Your Daily Diet!

Jamie Young, personal trainer FT Overland Park

Fiber is an important part of our diet.  It is a carbohydrate that cannot be broken down into sugars, instead it passes through our bodies undigested.  Fiber aids in regulating blood sugar levels. It also makes us feel more full when we eat, therefore satisfying hunger.  
Most Americans only get half of the recommended 20-30 grams of dietary fiber daily.  Foods such as whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, and nuts can help you meet your daily fiber needs.
