Fiber keeps you full and stops snacking! I am a firm believer that fiber has allowed me to drop most of my weight without feeling like I am starving. Aim for 35 grams a day. It is the best secret weapon I have and it works!
When I am off on my fiber intake, I can immediately tell because I'm always munching and feeling like I want to eat (when I shouldn't be hungry). It can be a challenge to get 35 grams of fiber a day, so I may eat Fiber One bars and Fiber One yogurt. It's great!
To boost fiber intake, try fiber gummies! They have 1g more fiber than powdered mixes, and are a treat-y way to take fiber. Stroehmann's also makes a double-fiber bread, which packs in 50% of your daily fiber in 2 slices!
