The first of the year we often find ourselves thinking about New Year’s resolutions. With the top one for so many of us, is the annual tradition which involves taking steps towards a healthier lifestyle. I have noticed many and friends talking about this lately. Many of us want to lose all those extra pounds while others just want to get healthier. I have made a lot of changes in my diet in the past few months. I have started watching more closely what I am actually putting in my body and also adding more of the things that I need. For me I needed more Protein and also fiber.
Experts tell us we need fiber, which comes from whole grains, vegetables and fruits, to help support your digestive system and maintain immunity. But as busy mom on the go, getting enough daily fiber can prove challenging. In fact, according to the American Dietetic Association, most women only get about half the recommended daily allowance of fiber. As I was looking for more ways to add extra fiber I happen to get an email from Mom Central about a new blog tour for FiberChoice Chewable Fiber Supplements. I admit I had tried these before but I wasn’t making it a daily thing till now! FiberChoice Chewable Fiber Supplement helps remove the guesswork with a simple, convenient, tablet that provides the natural benefits of fiber, while also helping to support the health of your immune system and digestive tract, and overall health. FiberChoice contains prebiotics – a unique fiber that nourishes the friendly, “good” bacteria that aids our digestive system. While the short-term benefits of fiber may go unnoticed, taking FiberChoice every day as part of an ongoing effort helps you to live a more healthy life.
This Time around I decided to try the FiberChoice® Weight Management since I am trying to lose weight! The Weight Management formula is bursting with strawberry flavor. Plus, it helps you curb between-meal cravings and promote weight control. How does it work I am sure your asking right? Since Fiber slows the rate at which your body breaks down food, you feel full longer and chromium picolinate is supposed to help promote fat metabolism. Of course this is when used as part of a healthy diet and exercise program. (SO DON’T think you can just take this and lose weight). I now feel happy that I am able to get the extra fiber I need without worrying about trying to keep up with fiber intake in everything I eat!
So do you watch your fiber or getting enough? According to American Dietetic Association, your body needs 25 to 30 grams of dietary fiber every day. When I saw that I KNEW I WAS NOT GETTING THAT. Most Americans manage to get only get half that – 12 to 15 grams – from their daily diets ALONE. Even people actively working to get more fiber into their diets can fall short of the daily recommended amount! So this year make sure you put getting extra Fiber in for your lifestyle change! You can read more about the benefits and learn more about FiberChoice on their main site.
