fibre

Dietary fibre to be precise.

It’s simply a type of carbohydrate, the stuff plants are made of.

And we need about 20-35g each and every day.

So, avoid going on a high-protein lo-carb diet as it makes it awfully hard to consume this amount.

Because eating it is supposed to actually help with weight-loss.

It comes as either soluble (dissolves in water) or insoluble (goes straight through you). And we need both.

Found to varying degrees in cereal, bread, rice, pasta, seeds, fruit, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and wooden chop-sticks, wholegrain varieties are always preferable over the more processed versions.

Just make sure you consume plenty of water to aid its digestion.
