How To Eat 37 Grams Of Fiber In A Day

How To Eat 37 Grams Of Fiber In A Day

Many people, especially those that know that heart conditions run in their families, are keen on their diets. They want to take in as much fiber as possible. However, this is not as easy as it may sound. You need a very high level of discipline to be able to consume the high levels of fiber that are deemed significant and healthy for the body on a daily basis.  Such discipline can, however, be achieved. Most people who are passionate about exercising and want to gain healthy bodies can manage it.

Many people find it challenging to consume enough fiber because most sources of fiber do not have a very pleasant taste. Because of this, most of us fail to meet our daily recommended fiber intake. This is why fiber content counting is necessary to avoid the threat of increased cholesterol and heart conditions. Here are some solutions to help you get enough fiber in your day.

Berry Berry Shakes

The best way to make sure that you are getting enough  fiber in your body is by making fruit shakes. These consist mostly of frozen fruits. I recommend the use of berries and not just any frozen fruits. Consider mixing blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Raspberries can add a lot of sweetness to your fruit shake. Apart from acting as a sweetener, they will also help you achieve your 37-gram mark. A cup of a berry mix shake will give your body around 12 to 15 grams of fiber. This is a significant amount when working to consume 37 grams of fiber in a day.

    Wheat Germ and Flaxseed

    Many people will not buy into this idea because they find these foods distasteful and simply not worth it. Flaxseed, for example, cannot be taken alone. You will need to take it alongside something else that will make it soft and taste better. You can consider mixing it with frozen fruit and you will not even realize or notice the taste of the flaxseed or even the wheat germ. Using flaxseed and wheat germ in shakes is great for helping you to attain the level of fiber you are aiming for.

      Chocolate and Fiber

      This is the best option for people that love chocolate. Chocolate can be used to accompany fiber by making your own chocolate fiber bars. They taste good and will be great for your overall health. For those people that are not into chocolate, a berry flavor is also an option.

      As you make your diet plans, ensure that you include some chocolate to help you enhance the taste of fiber and increase your intake.

        Store-bought Fiber Bars

        There are numerous brands of tasty fiber bars. They can act as supplements to your daily fiber intake and can be chewed easily. They also do not contain a lot of carbohydrates. Eating them as a snack once in a while may help to boost your fiber intake.

        New Double-Fiber Wheat Bread

        This bread is made by taking the usual high fiber ingredients and processing them to form a bread that contains a lot of wheat. This is blended and is chewier than normal bread. Though processed foods are not preferred to natural and less-processed foods, double fiber bread is a food that has very little nutrients withdrawn. It is therefore very beneficial to the body when it comes to nutrients, and especially fiber.

          Be On A Fiber Mission

          While it is healthy to include more fiber in your diet, this does not necessarily mean it is an easy task to achieve. It is difficult to consume only fiber, especially when it comes to the unpleasant taste that goes along with it.

          In order to increase your overall fiber intake, you should consume fiber supplements together with other foods. It is also a good idea to consume foods that are rich in fiber, such as corn, white beans, black beans, avocado, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice, edamame, whole-wheat bread, lentils, pears, artichokes, oatmeal, raspberries, etc. By consuming such foods, you will find easier to increase your intake of fiber and reach the daily requirement.

          So, setting yourself on a “fiber mission” to reach 37 grams a day really can help your overall health. In addition to the foods listed above, you can also consume fiber wraps (which can provide you with around 22 grams of fiber!), preparing sandwiches with roasted beef, eggs, or even burger meat — whatever flavours you prefer.

            10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

            Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

            It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply¬†featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically,¬†I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
