High-Fiber Foods and Weight Loss

Fiber helps you lose weight in a few different ways. First, foods with more fiber are more filling. If you eat high-fiber foods like oatmeal or whole-grain breads, it takes your body a long time to digest the food. So your belly feels full for a longer period of time and that can help you eat less. In addition, some types of fiber, called insoluble fiber, can't be digested by your body. So the food passes through your digestive system without being absorbed into your bloodstream. This means that the food won't end up padding your thighs or your belly like other foods can do. Try and get about 25-30 grams a day.

Here are some high fiber foods and how many grams per serving for easy reference:

  • Avocado - 13g per avocado

  • Green peas - 9g per 1 cup

  • Broccoli - 5g per 1 cup

  • Sweet potato - 5g per potato

  • Ezekiel bread - 5g per slice

  • Whole grain pasta - 5g per 1 cup

  • Brussel Sprouts - 4g per cup

  • Quinoa - 5g per cup

  • Oatmeal - 10g per cup
