May 27, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

INCREASE FIBER IN YOUR DIET

Adding fiber to your diet may be easier than you think. Here are some tips that can help you get started:

* Look at the fiber content on the Nutrition Facts Label on packaged foods.
Good sourced of fiber have at least 2.5 grams of fiber per serving.

* Substitute higher fiber foods, such as whole-grain breads, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, and fruits and vegetables, for lower fiber foods, such as white bread, white rice, candy, and chips.

* Start your day with a high-fiber breakfast cereal, such as bran cereal or oatmeal. Look for cereals that contain at least 5 grams of fiber per serving. Add fresh fruit for an extra fiber boost. 

As Always, To Your Health!

P.S.  Here's a video about adding a high fiber diet to your life.
