  • Nutrition Tip

    Including adequate amounts of fiber in your diet has a variety of health benefits, including bowel regularity and a feeling of fullness that may prevent overeating. A diet that is high in fiber may also reduce the risk of developing colon cancer and help lower blood cholesterol levels.

    Health organizations usually recommend eating a minimum of 25 grams of dietary fiber per day. To reach this goal, increase your fiber intake gradually to avoid symptoms like gas and bloating.
