How Much Fiber Should You Get in One Day?

Fiber is any food matter that your digestive system can't break into units small enough to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Getting the recommended amount of dietary fiber will help lower your risk of heart disease since a low fiber intake is associated with increased risk of heart disease (the number one killer of women) as well as some types of cancer and type 2 diabetes. Eating more fiber can assist with weight loss by allowing you to feel fuller longer, making it less likely you'll want to snack on less healthy items.
