While not a commercial plan designed for weight loss, high-fiber diets have been promoted for years for their health benefits along with their potential to assist in weight loss.1 The three most important kinds of dietary fiber include:

Insoluble: This fiber comes from the walls of plant cells and it doesn't dissolve in water or ferment in the colon like soluble fiber. It is found in whole grains, the skin of fruit that grows on trees, and many green vegetables. This is the kind of fiber that helps with digestive health and regularity.

Soluble: This fiber is found in most plants, but especially in legumes and beans, root vegetables, many fruits, and some grains, such as oats and barley. "Good" bacteria in the colon use this kind of fiber as a food source, and it may help control blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.

Prebiotic: This is a type of soluble fiber (called inulin or fructan) that is found in asparagus, onions, garlic, leeks, bananas, and some root vegetables, as well as in certain grains.
