A healthy diet comprises an adequate amount of all essential nutrients and that includes fibre too. Experts recommend eating fibre-rich foods to reduce the risk of diseases like hypertension, diabetes and obesity. Studies have also shown that it helps you with weight loss.

So how do you increase the amount of fibre in your diet? Nutritionist Kinita Kadakia Patel recently shared some tips for the same in an Instagram video. Here’s what she suggested:

*Eat fruits with the skin (the ones that can be eaten) but make sure you wash them very well. This is because the skin is also rich in fibre.
