How to Get More Dietary Fiber into Your Daily Routine
Unfortunately, fewer than 5% of average American adults (from 18 to 50 years old) get enough fiber from food1, and most them get only about half the fiber they need, which is about 28 grams of fiber per day for adults.2
Upping your fiber intake can be tough, especially if you’re used to a diet composed of lots of refined and processed foods. However, with a little planning, you can easily increase your fiber consumption to close the gap.
