Does Total Fiber Intake Matter More Than The Fiber Source?
Focus on total fiber, not the source.
Bottom Line: Eating 25 grams of fiber per day (for women) or 38 grams (for men) seems daunting—until you make it a habit.
A day’s sample menu:
* Raisin bran = 7 g fiber/cup
* Raspberries = 8 g fiber/cup
* Whole-wheat spaghetti = 6 g fiber/cup
* Black-bean or lentil soup = 7 g fiber/cup
