20 Excellent Sources of Fiber

Fiber-rich foods make you feel fuller for longer, help digestion, and ultimately aid weightloss. Many people associate fiber with trips to the bathroom. While it does regulate your bowel movents, it also helps reduce the risk of hypertension, heart diseasse and stroke. The body needs fiber even though it doesn't digest it.

Fiber is a carbohydrate that is not broken down into sugar molecules. Instead, it passes through undigested. It helps regulate the body's sugar use, while monitoring hunger and blood sugar.

There are two forms: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibers dissolve in water and slows digestion, lowering blood glucose and cholesterol, while insoluble does not dissolve water and stays unchanged as it makes its way to the colon, making it easier to go to the bathroom. Passing on your daily intake of fiber can lead to constipaton.

Fiber is an important ingredient to having a lean, healthy body. Here are 20 great sources of fiber that you can incorporate into your daily diet!
