Weekly Health Tip: Fiber to help you lose weight (from our current issue)

“Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that your body cannot digest; therefore it adds volume to fill you up without adding extra calories.  Weight loss genius!  A common complaint often expressed by people on a weight loss diet is, “I’m hungry.”  A wise dieter knows that it’s not only how much you eat, but what you eat that makes the difference between a rumbling stomach and a fully belly.

“Fiber creates a sense of fullness that will leave you satisfied and better prepared to pass up seconds. If you build your meals and snacks around high fiber choices like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean proteins and good fats, you’ll have a great combination that will make it less likely you will overeat.”

    I like that you’ve noted the importance of combining high fiber foods with lean proteins and healthy fats. Otherwise, we can eat lots of high fiber foods and feel really full but still WANT more because our protein/fat needs haven’t been met.
