Eating plenty of fibre-rich foods, such as wholegrain breads, wholegrain breakfast cereals, brown rice, wholemeal pasta and some vegetables, fruit and pulses, will improve digestive health and can help to protect against heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.
High fibre foods may help you to stay fuller for longer so can be useful if you are watching your weight. But if you have a poor appetite, eat fibre rich foods in moderation as filling up on bulky foods may prevent you from getting all the nutrients you need. It is also very important to drink enough water when eating a diet high in fibre. For more information on hydration, click here.
