5 fiber-rich fruits in your diet to maintain a healthy weight
(What's up ?) 1 week ago

When it comes to losing weight, we all are stressed about protein, or carb intake and often overlook the amount of fiber we consume. Surprisingly, fiber is as much important as other nutrients required to shed kilos and come to shape.

If we put in simple words, fiber is referred to as carbohydrates that cannot be digested by our gut, depending on whether it is soluble or insoluble. Fiber is filling and provides satiety after a meal, which prevents you from nibbling on unhealthy food items. It is also beneficial for people having high blood pressure and suffering from constipation.

Men are recommended to have 38 grams of fiber daily, while for women it is 25 grams. So, if you are trying to lose weight, increasing your fiber intake can help
