Lose 10 Pounds With Fun Fiber Foods

Lose 10 Pounds With Fun Fiber Foods     Lose 10 pounds by eating fun fiber foods that taste good and improve your over all health.  There are so many ways to get the fiber your body needs without sacrificing flavor.  Most people think adding fiber to their diet means eating dry bran muffins but there are many simple foods with fiber in them.  By having a bowl of steel-cut oats oatmeal in the morning gives you 3.9 grams of fiber per 3/4 cup.  Add half a cup of blueberries and you have an additional 2 grams of fiber plus a high dose of antioxidants.              The recommended amount of daily fiber is 20-35 grams.  This sounds like a lot of rabbit food to eat but it all adds up quickly.  Dietary fiber is either soluble or insoluble.  This means that if it's soluble, it will become gel-like in your intestines, which is a good thing.  It removes cholesterol and keeps it and saturated fats from getting absorbed into your bloodstream.  Insoluble fiber fills you up quickly, keeps hunger at bay longer, regulates blood sugar more evenly and keeps you "regular", especially if you add more water to your eating habits.  Not only does added fiber help the weight come off more quickly but it can add years to your life by protecting you from colon cancer and other intestinal diseases.  Fiber also helps the heart by clearing out bad cholesterol which lowers your risk of heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure.             Lose those 10 pounds by adding these fun fiber foods to your salads: blueberries, dried cherries, pine nuts, artichoke hearts, dried figs, dry roasted mixed nuts or pumpkin seeds.  These all have over 3.9 grams (up to 7.4 grams) of fiber per serving.  One serving of dried figs is 3.  Three dried figs have 5.2 grams of fiber so by munching on 9 of them, say as a snack or in a bulgar salad, you just ate 15.6 grams.  That was easy!  Two cups of fresh blackberries for dessert put 14.4 grams of fiber into you.  You see, those fiber grams add up quickly and they taste good.  Make a spinach salad for lunch or dinner and in just one cup of plain baby spinach you have 7 grams of fiber.  Add some carrots, radishes, artichoke hearts and celery and you have almost a full day's recommended amount of fiber.             Lose 10 pounds with fun fiber foods and watch how much better you feel.  The more whole grains, fruits, legumes, vegetables and nuts you eat the faster those pounds will fall off of you.  Your heart will get stronger, you'll be more "regular", your intestines will be protected from diseases and you'll be doing all this while having a happy mouth.    More info on Lose 10 Pounds    Tested Way To Lose Weight Fast Doctor Approved Real Results!
