National Nutrition Month Tip #8
Count fiber, not calories (and not carbs and not fat and not sugar). Shoot for at least 25-35 grams of fiber a day for weight loss, gut health, cancer prevention, cardio health, diabetes prevention and blood pressure control. Foods that are high in fiber are typically also high in phytonutrients and antioxidants that create focus, energy, glowing skin, improved cognition and strong immunity. Foods high in fiber include all plants: beans, whole grains, vegetables, nuts, seeds, avocado (super high) and other whole fruits.
Eat lots of them!🌱 And drink lots of water.
P.S. meat and dairy have no fiber.
