It is still popular to eat less bread and other products that contain gluten, also by people who do not necessarily have a gluten allergy or intolerance. There is nothing wrong with that, but there is a disadvantage to it. The chances are that you will get a lot less fiber by cutting out bread, crackers and other wholegrain products.

If you consume too little fiber, this can have adverse effects on your health. Some of the most important benefits of eating enough dietary fiber are getting softer stools, more satiety after eating a meal and easier ‘cleaning’ of the intestines.

Although you may not immediately think that this contributes to achieving your ‘Bikini Ready’, it will certainly help you. A healthy intestinal flora helps, among other things, to obtain a beautiful skin and by eating more fiber you will get hungry less quickly. As a result, you logically have less chance of excessive snacking or eating attacks.

In order to maximize the benefits of good fiber intake, you have to get around 30 grams a day as a woman. To help you with this, you will find below some of the foods that contain a lot of fiber and the amount per 100 grams of product.

  • Rye bread, dark – 7,8
  • Crispbread, wholemeal – 15.0
  • Muesli – 7.5
  • Oatmeal – 7.0
  • Unpolished rice – 3,5
  • Apricots dried – 24.0
  • Brown beans – 19.9
  • Legumes – 28.6
  • Almonds – 14.3
  • Avocado (each) – 10.0
  • Spinach – 3.3
  • Broccoli – 4.1
  • Green beans – 3,7

Check the number of fibers you will receive in one day and use for example the Fat Secret app. If you do not get the 30 gram, then it is advisable to eat more of the fiber-rich or other products above. If you have a bad bowel movement you will probably also soon experience improvement!
