When it comes to reaching your weight loss goals and living a healthier life, fiber’s the MVP of the Nutrition Facts label.

It starts with benefits for your heart: Eating a diet with 25 or more grams of fiber per day has been shown to improve cholesterol levels and lower your risk for heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

But fiber’s real superpowers are how it helps with weight loss. Fiber slows down the speed of your digestion, so when you eat it, you feel fuller for longer. That could be why in one study, people who were simply told to increase their fiber intake to 30 grams per day lost 4.6 pounds in a year. Adding those extra grams can have a direct effect on the size of your belly, too: In another study, scientists found that for every 10 grams of soluble fiber eaten daily, visceral fat was reduced by 3.7 percent over five years.

All this fiber magic is why many Nutrisystem’s meals and snacks are loaded with this filling, keep-you-full nutrient. When fiber is added into your favorite foods, those satisfying foods become even more satiating—helping you avoid overeating and stay on track to your weight loss goals.

Here are eight easy high-fiber meals from Nutrisystem that will help you thrive on your weight loss journey.
