Guide to Fiber in Food
by Dr. Jeffrey Greenberg of Cardiac Solutions
Below is a guide to the amount of fiber in many types of food. This is a general guide. Remember that your daily goal is at least 40 grams of fiber per day. For processed foods such as bread or cereal look at labels for the amount of fiber per serving. Increase your fiber intake slowly. It is best to get your daily fiber through foods versus powders. Try to avoid foods that have less than 2 grams of fiber per serving. Try to eat morning cereals that have at least 5 grams of fiber per serving (look at labels), if not more. Avoid foods with large amounts of added sugar.
