What are the health benefits of eating high-fiber foods for breakfast?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Fiber is the smart way to fuel up for your day. It’s how I start my mine. High-fiber foods, like whole grains, fruits, veggies and legumes, fill you up longer and control your blood sugar levels -- so there is no spike, and there is no crash. Additionally, fiber keeps you regular and boosts colon health. A recent study even found that people who consumed a great amount of fiber actually lived longer.
 
Going high-fiber, and this applies to all your meals, makes you feel full and light at the same time. Now, that's a novel idea worth sharing, isn't it? (It'd be selfish not to.) That's how fiber's designed to work. There is no rock in your stomach, not to mention, no room for regret.
