Fibre Files: 6 Reasons Your Diet Lacks it
Fibre — have you heard of it? We think it's pretty hard to miss these days, but are you actually getting enough in your diet? It's often confused with something to help keep you regular (you know, the roughage food), but it does so much more. Fibre actually has amazing disease-fighting properties, can reduce bloating and help shed unwanted kilos. So, to get to the bottom of things we've opened the fibre files and pulled in nutritionist and Sanitarium spokesperson, Zoe Bingley-Pullin to tell us how we can all get more fibre in our day.

While it might seem confusing, Zoe explains that getting enough fibre is actually quite simple. In fact, it's just a matter of making a small switch or adding a little bit extra to your existing meals.
