Fiber for Weight Loss

Hey Beauties! Did you know fiber could help you with losing some weight? Now this isn't a secret miracle diet pill or anything, but getting the right amount of fiber a day could help in those stubborn pounds. If you are like me and love to snack (don't judge me, lol) Fiber is a must!!! I personally take 2 tablets of Fiber Choice Weight Management (you can take up to 5 a day) a day. This help control my appetite....ALOT!!! Sometimes i tend to snack too much, or when I'm busy and short on time and hungry-grab something that isn't healthy for me-resulting in high calorie snacks=extra pounds =( But i have notice a major difference with adding FIBER into my diet and thought i would share with YOU. =)


1. Fiber will help fill you up without FILLING YOU OUT. Eating healthy high-fiber foods makes you feel full, so you can resist eating more food than you need.

2. Fibrous foods also can take longer to chew, giving your brain time to get the signal that you have had enough to eat.

3. Fiber also helps transport cholesterol out of our body, reducing our risk for heart disease.


Legumes (lentils, dry beans and peas)
•Other vegetables
•Fruits•Brown rice
•Whole grains (wheat, oats, barley)

NOTE: Adding more fiber to your diet will likely help you lose weight and improve your health, but do it gradually. Rapid increases in consumption of fiber may result in gas or diarrhea.

And be sure to drink plenty of fluids when adding fiber to your diet. While fiber is normally helpful to your digestive system, without adequate fluids it can cause constipation instead of helping to eliminate it.

Hope this was Helpful
