Hi,

I have been trying to lead a healthy and nutritional life by doing regular physical activities like pilates, yoga, jogging, etc. However, recently I came across an article saying that dietary fibers help regulate bowel movements and play an essential role in weight loss. Which food items have the best source of dietary fibers? And are there any other health benefits of increasing the number of dietary fibers in my diet?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

My suggestions for you are-

1. You must have a generous salad, and seasonal fruits served in your daily meals. Fruits and vegetables are the best sources of dietary fibers.

2. You must always consume whole wheat flour.

Thank you.
