Spark Coach asked me what I've learned since tracking my food. One of the biggest shockers to me is that I'm not eating enough fiber. I even take fiber pills. I really thought I got plenty of fiber! This is an example of how our perception can be skewed. I eat at least 5 fruits/veges a day. I chose whole grains. I only make brown rice. I only eat wheat bread. I rarely eat pasta or potatoes.... But, there it is - the numbers don't lie. I am routinely just shy of my fiber minimum. It's been 8 days on the new program and I haven't meet my fiber minimum yet.
So, today I'm snacking on some more veges. And I love wheatgerm - I think I'll add it to my yogurt. I'm going to hit those fiber numbers for the rest of the week!
