The Magic of *Real* Fiber

 

Our culture has largely taught us that fiber is a lifeless and bland dietary component with a sole purpose as a lowly street sweeper for our bowels. At the behest of conventional advice, we hide fiber in boring bran muffins and sugar-packed powders and cross our fingers that we’ll stay regular.

I can almost imagine Rodney Dangerfield saying, “Real whole fiber don’t get no respect.” But it should be respected, as equally as we respect our arbitrarily deemed nutrient-in-chief, protein, trailed closely most recently by fats—perhaps even more respected. But not for the reason you may be thinking.
