Have you heard of Fiber? 🥦 This picture has 20 g! Instead of trying to eat more protein we need to be
focusing on how to get more fiber!!
WTF as my friend says! (Where’s The Fiber) Dietary fiber refers to carbohydrates that resist digestion in the human small intestine. Fiber is found exclusively in plant foods including fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, and it occurs in two types: Soluble fiber swells in contact with liquids while insoluble fiber does not. Animal products have ZERO FIBER! Zilch! Diets that are high in carbohydrate and fiber and low in fat and cholesterol have clinical utility in prevention and management of several diseases, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Dietary fiber promotes satiety, and its intake is inversely associated with body weight and body fat. The RDI for fiber is 30 g, however most Americans are eating only HALF of that!
