#DidYouKnow: By simply eating more fibre, you could lose weight without the stresses of a strict diet?
Studies from AHA (American Heart Association) have shown that by eating 30 grams of fiber everyday; you can lose weight, speed up your metabolism and have a healthier heart, mind and body! This is because fiber-rich foods keep you fuller for longer, meaning you are less tempted to rich for less healthy foods!
Follow these 4 simple tips to increase your fibre:
- Eat your fruits and vegetables– try and eat your fruits, rather than have them in juices as most of the fiber is left out when it is juiced!
- If it’s green, be keen – green vegetables contain a large amount of great dietary fiber.
- Say yes to the skin – don’t peel off the edible skin on your fruit and vegetables. If you are worried about pesticides, just give them a good wash before eating.
Pulses are great for your pulse – beans, lentils and peas are a great source of fiber, very filling and they are purse friendly too!
