‼️ Happy #FitTipTuesday ‼️
Let’s talk dietary fiber AKA the “Original Detox” and no I’m not referring to your Grandma’s Metamucil! 😂👵🏼
Setting an intention to eat a diet high in dietary fiber automatically gears you up to make healthier food choices. Placing focus on consuming fresh fruits, veggies, legumes, and whole grains will steer you away from foods high in “simple sugars & simple carbs” and have you reaching for natural occurring sugar like fruits more regularly. 🍎🍐🍊🍓😋
Here are some more reasons to get on the fiber train!
1️⃣ Gets the ol’ bowels regular…Who doesn’t need help with that?! 💩😂
2️⃣ Helps maintain a healthier weight. Did you know that people who have a diet high in fiber tend to be leaner overall?
3️⃣ Aids in weight loss. Fiber rich foods fill you up faster & keep you satisfied longer.
4️⃣ Cuts your risk for Type 2 Diabetes
5️⃣ Lowers your odds of Heart Disease
6️⃣ Healthier gut….if you consistently meet your fiber requirements each day. No slacking!
Who makes a point to fill their plates with fiber rich foods? 🙋🏻
