Healthy High-Fiber Meal Plan

We know fiber is good for us, yet 95% of Americans still don't get enough in their diets. People who eat a fiber rich diet—at least 25 grams a day for women and 38 grams for men—are more likely to lose weight (and keep it off), have a lower risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers, and have a healthier and more regular digestive tract. This 7-day meal plan makes it easier to get your fill of fiber with delicious, satisfying dinners that provide at least 8 grams of fiber per serving.
