If you’re reading this, there’s a pretty good chance you already that fiber is great for you. Fiber is the secret to managing your weight without hunger. It can also help you feel better and is linked to a variety of lifestyle and health benefits. But, if you think reaping the benefits of this miracle nutrient means an eternity of kale and rabbit food, think again! It’s not just apples each day that can “keep the doctor away,” at all!
Fiber is found in a lot of foods, and a lot of different kinds of foods—far more than just apples, kale and rabbit food. So if you don’t like fruits, that’s okay, and if you don’t like vegetables, that’s fine too. Really, no matter what your taste preferences are, there’s delicious ways to meet your daily fiber needs, and actually enjoy what you are eating, because there range of foods that contain good amounts of fiber is just that vast.
F-Factor bars and powders are an easy way to incorporate fiber and protein in your diet!
To illustrate just how wide of a variety of foods you can find with fiber, we’ve compiled a list of all different kinds of foods that contain the good stuff, and good amounts of it too, AKA more than what you’d get from that apple, or bowl of kale. And to hone our point even further, we broke it down into categories for you. Keep in mind that this list is far from exhaustive; 50 barely scratches the surface of the multitudes of high fiber foods out there for you to try!

Just because a food is high in fiber doesn't mean it's a free food. Only non starchy vegetables are free foods on F-Factor. The thing with fiber is that the more a food has, the more it brings the net carb down. But with foods that are high in carbs to begin with, the portion of fiber can only negate so much. Take note of the portion sizes and net carbs for these foods too.
