Boosting Daily Dietary Fiber Is Only A Matter Of Smart Food Substitutions

August 13, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
By making simple substitutions of high-fiber foods for low-fiber ones, Americans can easily boost their fiber consumption to recommended healthy levels, according to a recently published article. The key is choosing higher fiber varieties of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, the authors say. Simple substitutions can also play a role. For example, a person consuming around 13 grams of fiber and 1,600 calories a day could double fiber intake easily by exchanging a low-fiber breakfast cereal for a high-fiber breakfast cereal, chocolate chip cookies for a high-fiber chocolate chip snack bar, and white bread for whole wheat bread.
