Fill Up on Fibre
Cutting calories doesn’t have mean going hungry. One easy way is to fill up on fibre. According to a study conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Human Nutrition Research Center, women who doubled their fibre intake from 12 to 24 grams per day cut their calorie intake by 90 calories per day. That’s almost 10 pounds a year! Eating a high fibre diet can also add energy to your day. Tanya Zuckerbrot, M.S., R.D., author of “The F-Factor Diet”, writes, ‘By eating a combination of fibre and protein at every meal, you are providing your body with long-term energy. If you eat a meal with simple carbohydrates (carbs without fibre), you will find yourself crashing soon after and heading to the vending machine for a quick pick me up. Try eating food enriched in fibre, like a cup of raspberries, to avoid the trip to the vending machine.
Slim Secrets bars are also a great source of both fibre and protein for that between meal snack.
