Coffee a source of fiber

There is good news for dieters who love coffeesource of fiber. According to a new study coffee can be a good source of fiber for the dieters. But they should not stop eating fruits and vegetables which are also big source of fiber.

According to the study brewed coffee contains soluble fiber, the roughage found in oatmeal and apples that aids digestion, helps the body absorb vital nutrients and keeps a lid on cholesterol.

According to the American Dietetic Association (ADA), men should consume around 38 gram of fiber per day and women should consume around 25 gram of fiber everyday. But 50% of Americans consumes only 15 grams of fiber or even less than this.

So we all need to improve our intake of fiber which is very essential for our health. So we need to take more coffee and big amount of fruits and vegetables.

I have to have my one cup of coffee in the morning -- it's good to know it has some benefits. I add touch of nonfat creamor, 1 pkt splenda, 2 tsp. of sugar-free\0 calorie chocolate syrup, and 1 scoop of biopro protein unflavored powder (20 g of protein; 80 calories). I won't give up my apple I have later on though. Lady Rose
