That's good to know that grits is high in fiber. I'm from the North, but parents are from the South, and we were raised on Grits. I still love grits. When I cook grits, I put a little salt/pepper/accent/butter, and a touch of garlic. One thing I find that grits does for me, is when I have gas bad I eat some, no matter what meal it's for, and it absorb the gas. Don't know how or why, I just know it works for me.

I am from the north but moved to the south 2 years ago. I never ate grits until recently. They are so delicious and I am hooked. I am glad that they are good for us diet wise. I love grits. Val

Diva,

I am not a nutritionist, but doing a quick search on grits, they are high in fiber (2-4 grams on average) which is why they will help keep you fuller. I think you don't see them too often, is they tend to be a southern food. I think you should be fine, as long as you don't put lots of extras in it.
