Default Eat your fiber for a better heart

No need to play Goldilocks to get your fiber intake just right. Researchers now know how much dietary fiber it takes to keep heart disease at bay. A dietary analysis of 5,960 people in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that those who consumed at least 25 grams of total fiber (soluble and insoluble) daily had the fewest risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity. "Fiber reduces cholesterol absorption and increases insulin sensitivity," explains study author Denis Lairon, Ph.D. Get your 25 grams with a combo of foods like these: two slices whole-wheat bread (6 g), 1 cup bran flakes (5 g), a medium pear (4 g), cup kidney beans (9.7 g), cup broccoli (4 g), and a medium baked potato (5 g).
