1. EAT FIBER

Picture 1 of 5

What is Fiber? Part of plant foods that can’t be digested or absorbed. Although fiber is not digestible, it is good for the body in many ways, fiber is important in maintaining your digestive system. People who do not eat enough fiber are usually constipated. Fiber has also been associated with colon cancer because fiber does most of its work in the colon. But my favorite job of fiber is pulling fat from the body. Fiber prevents fat from being absorbed in the body. When I learned this information about fiber I knew that I needed to have fiber with every meal. Women need 25 grams per day and men should get 38 grams per day, according to an Institute of Medicine formula based on getting 14 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories.” In addition to losing weight a high fiber diet reduces your risk of developing colon and breast cancer. Here are some of the ways to use fiber as a tool in your weight loss :

• fiber-rich foods such as fruit, vegatables and whole grains contain few calories per volume

• the extra chewing time involved with eating high-fiber foods may leave you feeling more satisfied

• the bulkiness of high-fiber foods keeps you feeling fuller longer so you’re more in control of your appetite you’re inclined to eat less food overall because high-fiber foods are filling

• high-fiber foods help you stay regular so you look and feel lighter and less bloated
