The Mayo Clinic states that women need 21 to 25 grams of fiber each day and men need 30 to 38 grams of fiber each day in order to maintain good health. The site offers the fiber-rich foods in categories for easy shopping, such as fruits, grains, cereals and pasta, legumes, nuts and seeds and vegetables.

The Dr. Oz website offers a list of the top 50 high-fiber foods. According to the Dr. Oz website, women who consume more than 30 grams of fiber each day have a lower risk for breast cancer, and that women who consumed 38 to 77 grams of fiber each day had a 20 percent less risk of ovarian cancer. The site has the fiber-rich foods broken down into categories, such as vegetables, grains, meals and canned foods, legumes, fruits, breads and nuts and seeds.

WebMD states that eating fiber helps reduce bad cholesterol, keeps the digestive system healthy and leaves the individual feeling fuller longer. The site offers an easy shopping guide by separating the high-fiber foods by the snack aisle, the cold case, breads and grains, dry and canned foods and fruits and vegetables.
