High fiber foods 

Written by el

Obtaining adequate fiber amounts per day is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. However, too
many people do not obtain sufficient fiber each day, which results in poor bowel function and

constipation. Here is a list i made for you which is gonna make you know what to include in your daily
intake of high fiber foods, with the approximate number of grams of fiber they contain. Fiber
contents shown below on the list of high fiber foods are for a food quantity of 1/2 cup unless
otherwise noted:
Bananas, 3 grams – medium banan will do the trick
• Beans, 6-10 grams – baked beans, black beans, white beans or any other kind you may want
• Berries, 4-5 grams – blackberries, raspberries
• Bran Cereals, 5-10 grams – All-Bran, Bran Buds, 100% Bran, Raisin Bran
• Bread, 4-7 grams – 2 slices whole wheat, or other kind
• Broccoli, 4-5 grams
• Brussels Sprouts, 2 grams
• Carrots, 3-4 grams
• Fruit, 4 grams – medium apple, medium pear
• Green Beans, 2 grams – broad beans, pole beans, snap beans
• Lentils, 6 grams
• Peas, 7-9 grams – black-eyed peas, green peas
• Potatoes, 4-5 grams – medium baked potato or sweet potato
So it’s beneficial to use the list of high fiber foods and including more of the foods from the list can
help increase daily fiber consumption so important for normal bowel function. Each fiber particle will
actually absorb liquid in the colon and help facilitate the desired regular movement along in the
bowels. If you want to make changes to your diet to include more of the foods from the list of high
fiber foods, take it easy. Just add a few grams at a time so the intestinal tract can adjust. If after a few
weeks you are still not having a daily bowel movement, you may wish to add a fiber supplement. The
payoff will be that wastes are eliminated along with the toxins from your system instead of your
body reabsorbing them.
