Slide show: Guide to a high-fiber diet
Blueberry-banana smoothie
Previous Next 2 of 5 Jump-start your day

Start your day with a fruit smoothie. If smoothies aren't your thing, try a high-fiber cereal — one with 5 or more grams of fiber a serving. Look for the words "whole grain," "bran" or "fiber" in the name. Or bulk up your favorite cereal by adding a few tablespoons of unprocessed wheat bran. Then top with berries. In fact, it's a good strategy to eat fruit at every meal.
