One of the keys to unlocking a lifelong lean and healthy body is fueling your body with low impact high fiber foods. These are foods that contain ample amounts of fiber but don’t contain a lot of other carbohydrates that will send your blood sugar levels on a roller coaster ride. Fiber provides bulk to your diet allowing you to feel fuller while eating less calories (even though you will often be eating a larger volume of food). Fiber also acts as a speed bump for digestion, slowing the rate in which the nutrients enter your body; this is good for weight loss, sustained energy, and managing hunger. Here are 10 must-eat foods for maximizing your fiber intake.
