7 High-Fiber Foods For Weight Loss

Apart from reducing the risk of stroke, hypertension and heart disease, fiber is also one of the foods you should embrace if you want to reach your weight loss goals. Fiber forms a gel in your stomach and slows digestion, causing your body to expend more calories trying to break it down. Slow digestion also helps lower cholesterol and blood glucose levels. Fiber also keeps you full for a longer period of time, thereby regulating your appetite.

Unfortunately, fiber consumption all over the world is currently at an all-time low. People probably don’t see the importance of this food or they just don’t know where to find it in abundance. Well, here are 7 foods that are really rich in fiber that you need to eat at least once every day.
