Eat Foods Very High in Fiber

(see list on page 12). High fiber foods such as beans, vegetables, and high fiber cereals help regulate your blood sugar; this is important for people with diabetes, as well as someone recovering from drug and or alcohol abuse. The craving for sugar after recovery is due to problems with blood sugar regulation. High fiber foods also help to lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Most gastrointestinal problems, such as heartburn, constipation, and chronic diarrhea, can be helped by eating high fiber foods (and avoiding high fat foods!). Eating foods high in fiber helps weight loss by creating a sense of satiety (satisfaction), so you'll eat less and still feel satisfied. High fiber foods also decrease your risk for cancer. Your goal is to take in more than 25 grams of fiber each day.
