I've found that getting my fiber through food sources (fruits, veggies, whole grains), eating yogurt daily (I do activia light) helps keep things moving more than if I use a fiber supplement . Staying regular is an important part of the weight loss process and general health.

For most veggies I buy frozen because I like how they taste better then canned, however when it comes to green beans to me frozen tastes funky. So, I recently switched myself and family to no salt added canned veggies. I did so by first doing half and half, one can of regular and one of no salt added. I continued this for a couple of weeks and now I only buy no salt added and no one in my family has even commented that they noticed a difference.
we collect cans! so on daz when we dont do w/o's, i grab my perdometer, a grabber & i walk , pick up cans. i can steps, & collecting cans cleans up the enviorment, & i get a little money.. did u know 10 bags of crushed cans pays approx 15.00? thats a new gym outfit 4 me. 334
