Adding more fiber to your diet is one of the easiest, and most rewarding, changes when trying to lose weight. It helps with digestion and, more importantly, helps you feel full longer which can reduce calories from binge eating.
How Much Fiber Do You Need?
It’s recommended for men to get 30-38 grams of fiber per day. Women should try to consume 25 grams per day.
An easier way to check your fiber needs is by using the ratio of fiber to calories consumed. You’d want to eat 14 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories you consume, for both men and women.
Here’s the list of high fiber foods that can help you lose weight while dieting:
