It can be tiresome wading through the seemingly endless health information that we’re bombarded with almost daily to find out what works and what doesn’t. Dietitian Danielle Capalino has come up with a simple solution for gut problems: Less meat and more fiber. We should be aiming for, ideally, 30 g of fiber per day. If we’re not getting that, we need to gradually increase that amount until we reach that goal. Ultimately, though, eating a wide variety of healthy foods is still best for our overall well-being.
- The average American adult should be consuming about 30 grams of fiber every day.
- If you have problems with gas, bloating, and irritable bowel syndrome, try a diet that is low in fermentable carbohydrates.
- If you want healthy gut microbiota, you can eat meat, but not every day.
“Sometimes, though, there is too much information, too often contradictory, lacking scientific evidence and making so much noise in social media that it is difficult to navigate among all those myths, false beliefs and reality.”
