Fiber vs Diabetes

The average American consumes only 17 grams of fiber a day, but people who up the fiber ante to 50 grams (by eating brown rice, whole wheat, etc.) each day may lower blood glucose levels, lowering their risk of diabetes.  The message of fiber studies is clear:  by cutting out saturated fats from beef and processed meats and adding whole grains, along with fiber-rich foods such as cantaloupe, grapefruit, oranges, papayas, raisins, beans, okra, sweet potatoes, squash and oat bran, you may add years to your good health.
