Do you know what TV commercial annoys me the most? The fiber supplement commercial that shows a women getting out of bed and immediately start chewing on a stalk of broccoli. The message-eating enough fiber is nearly impossible with food, take our supplement instead.


Getting Your Daily Fiber

If you’re eating a diet full of quality whole foods getting the recommend daily amount of fiber (21-25 grams for women and 30-38 grams for men) is not a challenge.

Let me walk you through how easy it can be for a typical female.

  • Breakfast: Instead of a pastry and coffee, have oatmeal with blueberries and flax.  8 grams of fiber to start the day.
  • Lunch: Skip the burger and fries.  Have a bowl of vegetarian chili for 9 grams of fiber.
  • Dinner:  Make a delicious stir fry with your protein of choice. Include broccoli, peppers, and squash and serve it with quinoa instead of rice. Easily 9 grams of fiber.

With your 3 meals, you’ve already racked up 25 grams of fiber. That doesn’t include the 2-3 snacks you should be eating a day as well.

Ready for some more? Try these fiber-tatstic snacks:

  • Pear – 5 grams
  • Apple – 3 grams
  • Almonds – 3 grams an ounce
  • Baby Carrots and Hummus – 3 grams

Bottom line, there is no reason to take a fiber supplement if you are eating a diet of healthy clean foods.  Don’t buy the hype. Fiber is plentiful in nature, no pills required.
