You already know that fibre helps to keep you regular. A high fibre diet can also help lower blood cholesterol, control blood sugar, manage appetite, and maybe reduce risk for colon cancer. We need about 28 to 35 grams of fibre each day for good health. Unfortunately, most Canadians eat less than half that amount. You can increase your fibre intake by choosing more whole grains, bran-based cereals, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and legumes.
