How to sneak in more dietary fiber
A fiber-rich diet includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
Meeting fiber goals improves overall nutrition and helps with regularity, even without dramatic dietary changes.
The average American man gets about 15 grams of fiber a day from his diet, but health experts say he should get more like 30 to 35. That's because higher-fiber diets are associated with better overall nutrition and lower risk for heart disease and colon cancer. Fiber also helps keep you regular.
