Do you know how much fiber your body needs to function well? Do you know how much you are actually getting in a day? It's probably much less than you think, since most Americans only get about half of the recommended 25 grams of fiber each day.
Fiber One wants to help and is offering a great Fiber Friend Gift Basket to three lucky winners.
Did you know that getting the recommended levels of fiber may lead to many healthy rewards?
* The most recognized benefit of fiber is its important role in keeping the digestive system running smoothly by promoting regularity. Fiber adds bulk to help move food through the digestive tract.
* Fiber – specifically soluble fiber – may also help lower blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the risk for heart disease. Fiber appears to lower cholesterol by interfering with its absorption in the digestive tract.
* Fiber may also be important for people who have diabetes. Diets high in whole grain and fiber have been shown to help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
* Getting enough fiber can also help curb your hunger and help you feel satisfied, which can help with weight management. Research suggests that people who have higher intakes of fiber tend to have healthier body weights.

I have to admit I'm kind of a fiber freak, sorry, so I wasn't surprised by anything, I pretty well know what foods are higher. BUT it was fun pickin' out how I look and playin' the game. You are so funny, where do you find the stuff you put on your blog? You are always comin' up with somethin' original. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Wasn't that just too funny? I hit the random button and it gave me the most hilarious looking character - it cracked me up!! I knew you were pretty savvy about fiber from some of your recipe posts but thanks for participating - good luck!ReplyDelete
i am not actually surprised by the amount of fiber in the foods listed...i'm actually a bit of a fiber counter myself... :)ReplyDelete
I'm a fiber counter too. Between joining Weight Watchers 9 years ago and teaching Family and Consumer Science, it's something that I'm conscious of. I was surprised by the lentils, though. I knew they were high in fiber, but my guess was 8-10 g per cup. 15 g is a lotta fiber!ReplyDelete
What a great giveaway. Thanks, Mary!
For some reason I thought broccoli had more fiber in it than it does, apparently it only has 2.30 grams. A Fiber One pastry has more fiber in it than broccoli..who knew?ReplyDelete

I was surprised by how much fiber was in 1 cup of lentils: 15.6?!? We eat those a lot, so that's good! I feel healthier already because of that :) I don't pay attention to the content of things, right now I'm all about making sure there's no milk in anything!ReplyDelete
I was surprised with the broccoli and carrots. I thought that they were higher in fiber.ReplyDelete
I really thought greens such as celery and broccoli would contain more FiberReplyDelete
We talk about fiber all the time at work, everyone seems concerned about how to fit more into their daily diet. It's great that so many companies are adding extra fiber to their products, makes it easier for us!ReplyDelete
I also thought celery would have more fiber than it does.ReplyDelete
I was shocked that some of the veggies didn't have as much.ReplyDelete
Whoops commented in the wrong place. I am really trying to get back on the healthy track Mary. This giveaway is a great start. I love yogurt and I do not have a scare. Great Giveaway.ReplyDelete
OK-the funniest part of playing that game and making my character was that my 3 year old son insisted that I have facial hair. So I was a cute little woman with a long, curly mustache!ReplyDelete
I was able to guess pretty well on the fiber challenge, but I was actually surprised that there wasn't much fiber in fruit.
