Fiber has many health benefits, so focus on adding fiber to your diet during January. Make sure to follow these tips when adding more fiber to your diet:
- Start slowly by adding one fiber-rich food daily for one week, then increase by one serving until recommended levels are reached.
- Add high-fiber foods gradually, since too much fiber at once produces discomfort.
- Eat a variety of fiber-rich foods such as whole grain bread, oatmeal, fruits, and vegetables.
