Do you like to get a jump start to each day? If you answered yes to this, then I have the perfect answer for you. Fiber One Cereals is the best way to start your day off and give you a bit of energy. Did you know that 9 out of 10 Americans don't get enough fiber in their diets, which is an alarming statistic, considering how very important it is for your health . I know that I struggle with incorporating fiber into my diet each day, so when I was given the chance to review Fiber One Cereals from General Mills through My Blog Spark, I of course had to jump on this. I received the cereals shown in the picture below.
The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. What’s amazing is that incorporating fiber into your diet can be effortless and definitely delicious, with Fiber One cereals offering at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving. (Some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent!) Fiber One Original® and flavored varieties like Honey Clusters®, Raisin Bran Clusters®, Caramel Delight®, and Shredded Wheat®, make fiber taste good and help to give people a jump start on their fiber intake each day.
A recent nutrition review* concludes that eating fiber is associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes. In addition, fiber helps you feel satisfied, which makes it easier to stick to your diet and lose weight without feeling as hungry.
Outlined below are intriguing statistics from a recent survey** I took part in, along with over 1,000 fellow bloggers:
- 30 percent thought they were getting the recommended Daily Value of fiber
- 66 percent say they struggle to incorporate fiber into their diets
- 51 percent said that they don’t think about incorporating fiber into their diet, while 21 percent said fiber is too difficult to find in foods they enjoy
- 45 percent said they would like their fiber to come with honey
Let your taste buds be your guide and let Fiber One take care of the fiber. Getting fiber in foods you love doesn’t have to be a struggle when there are delicious honey clusters, plump and juicy raisins, caramel-flavored whole wheat squares, or whole grain shredded wheat biscuits with frosting that make it taste amazing.
One of my favorites that I was sent was the Raisin Bran Clusters. Not only did it have a delicious taste to it, but the raisins were plump and juicy, and it had these crunchy clusters that were scrumptious, along with the wheat grain flakes. I have always had this idea in my head that whenever anything had fiber in it, that it wouldn't have a great taste. Well, that couldn't be the truth at all. I was very surprised by this awesome taste of Fiber One Raisin Bran Clusters, and I must say that look forward to it each and every morning when I wake up. Another favorite of mine is the Shredded Wheat. I have always been a fan of this type of cereal, and knowing that this was indeed healthy for me to eat, made it that much better. This cereal is a whole grain shredded wheat biscuit with a light frosting. I have two words to say about Fiber One Shredded Wheat, and it is "Yum Yum"! It includes 35% of your daily fiber intake needed.
