In the western world, most people get far too less fibre in their food
It is estimated that one should get at least every day 30 grams of fibre if not more
I will give a rough idea of how much fibre one eats every day by calculating certain foods.
A serving of fruits is considered to be at least one whole fruit such as an apple or a banana This would be equal to 2 grams of fibre
To get 2 grams of fibre from grains one needs to eat at least half a cup of cooked brown rice half a cup of whole grain pasta, one slice of whole grain bread or if you prefer to weigh then one ounce [that is more of less30 gram] of uncooked whole grain wheat, pasta brown rice etc is equal to 2 gram of fibre
A serving of vegetables which is also 2 gram of fibre is more or less 150 gram
1/2 cup of legumes may contribute to 8 grams of fibre!!!
This is all a rough estimation and not all fruits or vegetables are equal of course and realize that whole grains and legumes are very important to get enough fibre.
The above is useful to get an idea of how much fibre one eats on an average per day
Serving is a typical American expression!

Hoe zit dit dan met het plant paradox dieet? Daar mag je geen graansoorten eten en zeker geen legumes…..
