Happy Tuesday to you!
Do you meet your fiber requirements each day through your food? Do you find that you need to take a fiber replacement to meet your daily needs?
Try to meet your fiber requirements with foods rather than supplements.
A large increase in fiber over a short period of time could result in bloating, diarrhea, gas, and all-around discomfort. It is better to add fiber to your diet gradually over a recommended period of about three weeks, to avoid abdominal problems.
Your challenge today is to try and consume your fiber needs through:
Tips for Eating Fiber
* Eat a variety of foods
* Do not completely rely on fiber supplements
* Limit your intake of processed foods
* Increase your fiber intake gradually
* Try to consume 25 to 35 grams of fiber every day
--- "REMEMBER to get in your 8 glasses of water too. Water helps your system to process fiber." ---
Have a FANTASTIC Tuesday!
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
