Types of fiber

Hungry between meals? Surely it has sometimes happened that not even two hours have passed since breakfast was consumed and you are already hungry, which causes anything to be appetizing, even a fiber snack.

This usually happens because the organism has already digested breakfast and now needs more energy to continue with the day's activities. Experts recommend making 5 meals a day, 3 main meals and two snacks, one between each main meal.

Snacks or snacks can help control the consumption of food during the day and thus avoid overeating, this is one of the reasons why they are recommended.
