Fiber acts like a sponge in your digestive tract, absorbing other molecules like carbs, fats, and sugars—along with all their calories—and preventing them from settling on your hips.

To help power your plate right, we’ve rounded up the best and worst ways to meet your daily dose.
• Original “Fiber One” Cereal
• Lentils and Beans
• Fiber Rich Baked Goods (with whole wheat flour and oats)
• Canned Peaches
• Process Brown Breads (use “whole grains” only)
