Fibre is a key nutrient in our diets because it helps to control weight and avoid constipation. However, and far from what we usually think, meat is not a food rich in fibre. If you want a fibre rich diet, it is best to add other food groups than meat. If you don’t believe it, take a look at this ranking and check which meat has the most fibre. Surprised?
Which meats are rich in fibre?
Even though lean meat (chicken, beef and pork) are recommended for low fat levels and to build muscle fibres, this doesn’t mean that they are foods high in fibre. In fact, meat isn’t eaten to resolve problems such as constipation and consuming it can in fact be counterproductive if we want a diet with adequate fibre.
If you want meals rich in fibre, make a note of which foods have the most fibre and add them to your favourite lean meat. If you opt for recipes like this, make use of the food calorie calculator to monitor your calorie intake.
