According to the FDA, despite fiber being present in a wide variety of fruits, grains and vegetables, most Americans do not consume a sufficient amount of fiber. Getting fiber into our diets has not become any easier these days, since our consumption of processed foods – which typically have significantly less fiber – continues to increase.

But what is the best way to make fiber a part your daily eating routine so that you can realize the maximum benefits? Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD, a Manhattan based nutritionist and the author of The F-Factor Diet: Discover the Secret to Permanent Weight Loss, will provide her thoughts on how you can improve your health and weight management when she visits 92nd Street Y next Tuesday on February 15.
