Few Americans eat enough fiber in their daily diet; the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends 14 grams for every 1,000 calories per day or about 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men daily. This will vary depending on how active you are each day. If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes eating more fiber could help to reduce your blood sugar levels after meals. Eating more fiber will allow you to eat less and still feel full. It is often overlooked, but dietary fiber is divided into two groups soluble and insoluble. In addition to curbing your appetite, fiber enhances digestion and feeds your good gut bacteria, which will fight inflammation and protects your heart.
High-fiber foods include:
Pears, strawberries, avocados, apples, raspberries, bananas, carrots, and beets.
Brussels sprouts, artichokes, lentils, kidney beans, quinoa, oats, and popcorn
