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 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
