Increase Your Fiber to Reduce Heart Disease Risk

by Jodee on April 6, 2009

Many people don’t get enough fiber from the foods they eat. If you want to lower your risk of heart disease, make a point of including plenty of fiber-rich choices in your eating plan. Here are some examples of high-fiber foods you should be eating more often:

  • Beans
  • Bran cereals
  • Brown rice
  • Fruits
  • Oat bran
  • Peanuts, walnuts
  • Vegetables
  • Wheat bran
  • Whole grain bread
  • Whole-wheat pasta

If you have a choice between drinking a fruit or vegetable juice, opt for the whole fruit or vegetable if at all possible. The juice does contain vitamins, but it doesn’t have a lot of fiber.
