I’m gonna go ahead and guess that if you are reading this, you probably need to eat more fiber.
Because holy sh*t only 3% of Americans get the recommended dose of fiber every day!!!
OK, wait. Let’s back up a sec and give a little background on why fiber is important in the first place.
If you’ve been following me for a while, most likely you know all about eating PHFF. I probably mention it in every blog post?
I’m a little obsessed.
But, eating PHFF (ps if you don’t know what is it, definitely check out this post first then come back) is sooooooo important for keeping your body in fat burning mode AND just feeling your best all day long.
PHFF stands for Protein, Healthy Fat, and Fiber. But I feel like I don’t talk enough about fiber? I’ve chatted about protein a ton, and I feel like I’m constantly harping on the benefits of eating lots of good fats, but fiber just doesn’t seem SEXY, ya know?
Fiber just gets kind of neglected.
Fiber is found in veggies, seeds (like chia and flax), nuts, fruit, beans, lentils, edamame, and whole grains.
But let me tell you something – fiber IS sexy. IT’S SO SEXY. It’s almost as sexy as blood sugar. For real. And I’m gonna convince you.
