Increase Your Fiber to Reduce Heart Disease Risk

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.
