Do you know that 9 out of 10 Americans do NOT get enough fiber in their diet?  A sad and alarming statistic.  We need fiber.  All of us.  There are so many ways we can add more fiber to our diets without ever having to even stop to think about purchasing the dreaded FIBER SUPPLEMENTS that our grandparents used to take decades ago!  Oh, the gritty texture, the chalky taste- there’s no need to worry, friends.   Those are a thing of the past.  With brands like Fiber One working to help us get the daily fiber intake we need so badly, those nasty old canisters of fiber supplements will be a distant memory!!

I get plenty of fiber in my diet, and I don’t take supplements.  I don’t need to.  We simply try to keep foods in the house that are high in fiber so that we don’t need the supplements.

We actually always have Fiber One bars in our house- although the kids have called them “fiver” one bars for so long we kind of all refer to them that way.  We discovered Fiber One bars when  I learned the hard way during my first pregnancy just how important fiber is in our diets.  They’ve been in my house for over 6 years now- and will be here for years to come!!

Trying the Fiber One cereals was a logical next step- and the Honey Clusters and Caramel Delight varieties are quite often found as an on-the-go snack in both my bag and the kids’ packs.  They make a great crunchy and sweet topping for yogurt for breakfast or a snack, and a delicious way to get just a bit more fiber into your day without any effort at all!  (We all love crunch in our family, so having crunchy toppings appeals to all of us).

We all need to be aware of what we are consuming.  Why not opt to have a product in our home that has a little extra fiber instead of one that doesn’t?  They taste amazing and do so much that is beneficial to our bodies and longterm health!!

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. What’s amazing is that incorporating fiber into your diet can be effortless and definitely delicious, with Fiber One cereals offering at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving. (Some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent!) Fiber One Original® and flavored varieties like Honey Clusters®, Raisin Bran Clusters®, Caramel Delight®, and Shredded Wheat®, make fiber taste good and help to give people a jumpstart on their fiber intake each day.
A recent nutrition review* concludes that eating fiber is associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes. In addition, fiber helps you feel satisfied, which makes it easier to stick to your diet and lose weight without feeling as hungry.
Outlined below are intriguing statistics from a recent survey** you took part in, along with over 1,000 fellow bloggers:

Let your taste buds be your guide and let Fiber One take care of the fiber. Getting fiber in foods you love doesn’t have to be a struggle when there are delicious honey clusters, plump and juicy raisins, caramel-flavored whole wheat squares, or whole grain shredded wheat biscuits with frosting that make it taste amazing.
