Workout Wednesday Tip: Get More Fiber
Fiber is essential for regulating the body and known for preventing constipation, reducing the risk of digestive conditions, and lowering and controlling blood levels.
Many people have discovered fibers ability to aid in weight loss. Fibrous foods generally require more chewing time, which gives your body time to register when you’re no longer hungry, so you’re less likely to overeat. Also, a high-fiber diet tends to make a meal feel larger and linger longer, so you are able to feel satiated for a longer period of time.
Whole-grain foods, raw vegetables and fruit (especially the seeds and skins), legumes, nuts, seeds and popcorn are good sources of fiber.
