Diets make our lives complicated, we quit as soon as we find a good excuse.
In the meantime, your body has a built in mechanism to keep you in good shape. It’s name - microbiome (community of the bugs in your gut).
Feed your bugs and they will protect you from food-borne diseases such as obesity.
Fiber is the food for your bugs (well explained in the video from UC Davis by this link). You may have fiber from many sources, but the easiest way is from snacks. They’re always at hand and tasty.
