- Fiber fills you up. When you eat foods high in fiber, you eat less.
- All packaged foods have a Nutrition Facts label that lists how many grams of fiber a serving contains. That makes it easy to make a good choice.
- Soluble fiber absorbs water and slows the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream. If your blood sugar level is lower, your pancreas makes less insulin, which means your body is less likely to store fat. Examples of soluble fiber: oats, apples, blueberries, beans, and nuts.
