Nutritionist suggests simple ways to add fiber-rich foods to your diet.
A healthy diet includes an adequate amount of all essential nutrients, and that also includes fiber. Experts recommend eating foods rich in fiber to reduce the risk of diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Studies have also shown that it helps you lose weight.
So how do you increase the amount of fiber in your diet? Nutritionist Kinita Kadakia Patel recently shared some tips for the same in an Instagram video. This is what he suggested:
* Eat fruits with skin (the ones that can be eaten) but be sure to wash them very well. This is because the skin is also rich in fiber.
* Add lentils, nuts, and seeds to your meals, all of which are rich in fiber.
* Replace all cereals you eat with whole grains, even pasta or chappati.
* Add millet to your diet to increase fiber (husk). Recently, actor Rakul Preet Singh shared that he had stopped by to eat millet. Read about the benefits here.
“In this way, you can achieve between 20 and 35 g of fiber,” added the nutritionist. So how about you give it a try?
However, it is recommended that you consult a nutritionist before making any changes to your diet.
