5 Best Sources of Fiber for Weight Loss


1. Artichoke Hearts

Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip

It’s surprising how much fiber artichokes pack for a low amount of calories. A cup of artichoke hearts has 14 grams of fiber ( about 50% of your recommended daily intake) for only 90 calories. Additionally, a cup of artichoke hearts has 4 grams of protein and only 2 grams of sugar. It’s not only high in fiber; it’s also a diet-friendly food.

2. Raspberries and Blackberries

It may be surprising, but berries pack a ton of fiber. Between the skin and the seeds, they are a fiber heaven for dieters everywhere. The best berries for fiber are raspberries and blackberries, with 12 to 13 grams of fiber in a 100-calorie serving.

3. Spinach

With under 1 gram of fiber per cup, spinach might not seem like a great fiber source, but this is only because it’s so light. A salad or smoothie made with enough spinach can pack a healthy dose of fiber. One hundred calories worth of spinach delivers 10 grams of fiber! Because spinach can be sneaked into almost every meal, it’s an ideal way to add fiber to your diet.

4. Broccoli and Cauliflower
These veggie florets are full of fiber. Broccoli and cauliflower mixes are often sold in microwavable bags. A bag with 4 cups contains about 8 grams of fiber! Have one as a side or use it as a base for stir fries or salads.

5. Pumpkin
That’s right, pumpkin is a great way to get your daily dose of fiber. One can of this bright and sweet squash has about 7 grams of fiber and only 90 calories! It’s a diet-friendly fiber-full food that can be used for breakfast, dinner, or dessert!
