Fiber

I finished my first test in my nutrition class yesterday – I did pretty good. One of the things we’ve been studying is the importance of fiber in our diets. I knew that fiber kept things “flowing”, but there are also many other benefits. Studies show that fiber will attach itself to cholesterol and escort it out of your body! It also reduces the risk of diabetes and obesity.

The other thing I noticed, is that a diet high in fiber is also low in many of those things that aren’t so good for you. Just remember all things in moderation (women should be shooting for at least 25 grams per day) and increase your water intake.
