“Are you getting enough fiber?” Your physician has likely asked you this question if the reason for your doctor visit was related to your digestion or weight. Many times, patients have no idea how to answer that question because they cannot honestly say how much fiber they consume through diet alone. They also typically don’t realize the importance of fiber.
It seems like every day there’s a new fad when it comes to your health. Is it good to juice or not? Should you try the Whole-30 diet? Is gluten bad for you? With a myriad of questions like these floating around my office, I can always say with absolute certainty that no matter what your diet of choice is, there is one component that you need to make sure to include: fiber.
