High in fiber - aim on consuming 25 to 35g a day ⠀

Low in fat - aim for 20 percent of total calories from fat, with less than 10 percent of total calories from saturated fat.

Limited in simple sugars - avoid sweets and refined foods. Choose low glycemic index foods as much as possible like sweet potatoes, legumes, bread made with stone ground flour, barley and bulgur.
