The Magic of Fiber
When we think of fiber we think of bran or Metamucil, something that prevents constipation.
We have to change that thinking.
Fiber is actually a vital nutrient which is present in natural plant foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Its deficiency can lead to major health problems like hemorrhoids, varicose veins, diabetes and cancer.
Fiber fills you up mechanically so you feel full when you consume it. It is very low in calories so it is an ideal nutrient- dense food.
