How a High Fiber Diet Can Improve Your Health

Eating high fiber foods has been proven to be good for your health in more ways than one. Eating healthy with high fiber can help you lose weight, improve your digestion, and lower blood pressure and cholesterol. High fiber diets are also associated with lower risk of diabetes and certain types of cancer.

One of the best ways to add fiber to your diet is with cereals. Many foods contain high fiber, but lots of different cereals are some of the highest fiber foods per serving.

Cereals with high fiber have vastly improved since their beginnings. They don't all have the taste and texture of cardboard. Some are actually pretty tasty.

What to Look for When Buying High Fiber Cereals

Bran cereals are the best choices if you want high fiber. Bran has close to twenty grams of fiber in one cup. Bran cereals are even higher in fiber than whole grain cereals.

Some people may have trouble digesting bran cereals though, at least until their body adjusts.

For the most nutrition and cereals which are best for your health, try to find not only high fiber content and whole grains, but also look for cereal with little sugar or no sugar added. See if the cereal contains any trans fats as well when doing your research.
