Thanks, Lita! It's one of the things I track everyday and find I am much more satisfied when I meet this goal!
Off to a great day with raspberries at breakfast and carrots, celery and cucumbers included at lunch!
It seems to me, this is one of the key ingredients missing in the western diet. Could it be our lack of fiber contributes to our overeating epidemic? We are simply not satisfied by those processed foods that are so common in our diet and continue to consume calories in a quest for satiety?

Happy Monday to you!

Your challenge today is simple: Eat lots of food with fiber.

More and more research is showing that a high-fiber diet may help prevent diabetes, heart disease, cancer and weight gain. According to new research from the University of Texas in Austin, women who maintain a healthy weight fill up (without filling out) on fiber.

How can you get more fiber in your day?

* Eat a variety of foods - the less processed the better. Bran, for example, is a superb source of fiber.

* Eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat them unpeeled, such as baked potatoes or apples with their skin.

* Drink plenty of liquids. Otherwise fiber can slow down or even block proper intestinal digestion.

* Spread out your fiber intake. Getting all you fiber at one sitting may cut the benefits and increase unpleasant side effects.

How are YOU doing on fiber today?

Can you get to your range? GO FOR IT!

Have a FANTASTIC Monday!
