If you wonder how much fiber you’re eating in a day, we’ve got an app for that. Actually, two!
There are a number of apps and websites you can use as a food diary, but two stand out above the others for tracking fiber. We especially like that they are free.
Give either of these trackers a try for a few days to become more aware about the foods you’re consuming. Tracking food nutrients every day is the surest way get a clear picture of your eating habits. Even tracking for a few days can give you a good idea of how much fiber you're consuming and any adjustments needed to reach the 40 grams per day fiber goal.
This tracker is the easiest to use. You can quickly setup your fiber goal, which we think is pretty awesome.
Set your fiber goal to 40 grams and see how you progress towards that goal. Remember, slowly work your way up to 40 grams of fiber per day. It’s not a race but a journey.
