Eat More Fiber: Stay Full, Lose Weight
According to Tufts University professor of nutrition Susan Roberts, PhD., “People who eat 35 to 45 grams of fiber a day are less hungry when losing weight and lose more weight than people who eat less fiber.”
There are two different types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber has been proven to keep you feeling fuller longer because it digests slower in the stomach. Weight loss is an uphill battle. Making minor adjustments and adding additional fiber may make the battle less grueling.
Try these simple changes to decrease hunger:
- Increase water consumption and add fresh squeezed lemon.
- Increase consumption of quinoa, oatmeal, oat cereals, lentils, apples, oranges, pears, oat bran, strawberries, nuts, carrots, celery, spinach, broccoli, blueberries and beans.
