A recent nutrition review concluded that eating fiber is associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes, and it also helps you feel satisfied, which makes it easier to stick to your diet and lose weight without feeling as hungry. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, but the average American consumes only 15 grams.
Fiber One wants to help make it easier for you to get the fiber you need by offering cereals that contain at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving. They sent our family their cereals to try out, and the Caramel Delight and Shredded Wheat were hits with adults and kids alike. Fiber One wants you to “let your taste buds be your guide and let Fiber One take care of the fiber,” so they’re offering a printable coupon for $0.75/1 Fiber One cereal.
Fiber One is also giving one lucky CFO reader a Fiber One Dietary Guidelines Gift Pack that includes 5 boxes of Fiber One cereal in Original, Honey Clusters, Raisin Bran Clusters, Caramel Delight, and Shredded Wheat varieties.
