Less than 3 percent of Americans meet the daily recommended fiber intake, despite research suggesting that high-fiber foods, such as whole grains, can affect the progression of coronary heart disease. The soluble fiber of oatmeal forms a gel in the stomach, delaying stomach emptying, making one feel full for a longer period.
