WHY CARB QUALITY AND FIBER INTAKE IS IMPORTANT

I came across this short article from PALEO Magazine that talks about fiber in our diet.  The daily recommendation for women is 25 to 29 grams per day, which is less than the recommendation of 36 grams for men.  The reality however, is that the average American is getting half of the daily recommendation at best.

Fortunately, getting enough fiber is possible on a low-carb diet, or even on a ketogenic diet. If you follow a low-carb diet, some high-fiber foods that can fit include avocados, berries, leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, and nuts.

Although I don’t advise you driving yourself crazy tracking what you eat every single day, it is good from time to time to track in this case, your fiber intake, to see how you are measuring up.  My guess is you’ll be surprised at the amount of fiber you’re not getting in your diet.  I suggest using a food tracker app like Chronometer to track your macros.

A great suggestion I have for maximizing your daily fiber is to make yourself a big ass salad for lunch and load it with organic spring mix, spinach, avocados, berries, nuts, protein, etc.  If you do this along with eating other veggies with dinner, you will be doing yourself a great service toward the goal of more daily fiber!
