Infographic: Fiber for Weight Loss

This is another excellent infographic, entitled "Fiber for Weight Loss" which illustrates how dietary fiber aids in weight loss.

According to the infographic, The daily recommendation is 25 grams of fiber but 35 to 50 grams is needed per day in order to lose those extra pounds.

Good sources of fiber are organic fresh fruits and vegetables, unrefined grains, legumes, nuts and seeds such as:

Bananas
Apples with skin
Pears with skin
Raisins
Figs
Raspberries
Oranges
Potatoes, with skin
Carrots, raw
Broccoli
Artichokes
Brussels sprouts
Whole-wheat bread and pasta
Brown rice
Pearled Barley
Oatmeal
Split Peas
Lentils
Black Beans
Almonds
Pistachios
Pecans
Sunflower seed kernels

A plant-strong, whole food diet will likely easily satisfy or exceed the daily recommended dietary fiber requirement.  Individuals who lack fiber in their diet can opt to take it in a supplement form.
