The Five to One Fiber Rule

Doctor's Note

I love doing these practical day-to-day decision type videos. If you go to the grocery store and find products that fit the 5 to 1 ratio rule, please share them in a comment below. They aren’t easy to find!
Eating fiber rich foods is more than just avoiding constipation. For example, watch my videos Fiber vs. Breast Cancer and How to Prevent a Stroke.
There’s this misconception that we can’t digest fiber. We can’t do it alone, but we can with a little help from our little gut flora friends. See Prebiotics: Tending Our Inner Garden.
But that’s not to downplay all the suffering caused by constipation. Feel free to check out How Many Bowel Movements Should You Have Every Day? and Should You Sit, Squat, or Lean During a Bowel Movement?
Isn’t this talk of fiber reductionistic? Good question! So good, in fact, that I did a whole video about it. Is the Fiber Theory Wrong? is queued up next.
