Tip for Today: Fiber, Fiber, Fiber

ENTER IMAGE NAME BETWEEN QUOTES - USE ENGLISH NOT FILE NAMING STRUCTURE You probably know the benefits of fiber by now, the most common one being to keep constipation to a minimum, but did you know it can also help reduce the risk of colon and breast cancer? On top of this, some studies have also shown it may play a role on reducing LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and also blood sugar. If these studies are correct, then fiber is essential in helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and in helping to manage diabetes and to maintain weight loss! So how much fiber should you aim to pack away every day? Aim for 30-38 grams daily. This can be done by eating two cups of veggies, 1.5 cups of fruit, or a combination. Enjoy!
