since I changed from warfarin to another medication there are no restrictions on the food I can eat so I've been enjoying the healthy fruit and vegetables I was not allowed before.

30 grams, but i have 1497 calories and i want to be under 1400. i'm happy to eat fiber, but i can't afford the calories. i must have protein and it has no fiber.

tips for sheila: beans!!, broccoli, mushrooms, whole grains, cherries and berries, whole fruit instead of juice.

Fiber Up Mini-Challenge!

This is the 2nd of our 6 month rotation of Mini-Challenges. Sometimes we change them up but this one is a "tried & true", so we keep it near to the starting point.

For the new members: This team is set up for us to see Mini-Challenges during the month as follows:

2 weeks - Intake Mini-Challenge
1 week - Exercise Mini-Challenge
1 week - Self Esteem Mini-Challenge

This is week two of the month so here we go!
Fiber is necessary in our diets and our bodies for many reasons. Did you know that not getting enough fiber can actually cause you to GAIN weight? Have you been getting your 25-35 grams of fiber daily?

This week we'll concentrate on meeting our fiber goals and maybe create a new habit along the way. Read the following Spark article for suggestions on how to up your fiber intake:
tinyurl.com/3dbe6y

Remember, this is a mini-challenge, so you'll complete the challenge by getting your RDI of fiber at least 5 of the 7 days this Challenge is in effect. Make sure you post to this list how you are doing it that the other team members can learn from you too!

PS: It's important to keep up the water intake we started last week during this fiber mini-challenge!

Also, don't forget to log in your starting weight for this Challenge under the accompanying Weigh-In Forum. Good luck and fiber up!!!!
