Focus on Fiber
I know it’s not a pleasant subject to talk about, but digestion plays an important role in weight loss. When our system isn’t working properly, we feel bloated and sluggish which can lead to a loss of motivation. Increasing your fiber as you age can help keep things moving along and boost your weight loss efforts.
Here are some quick tips on getting more fiber in your diet:
- Garnish your meals with small sides of whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, and sprouted-grain bread.
- Sprinkle your salads with chia seeds.
- Incorporate more beans and legumes by making a large pot of soup once a week.
- Include high-fiber fruits and veggies to most meals and snacks. These include apples, oranges, carrots, spinach, and broccoli.
Upping your fiber content can really help move the needle on the scale. And overall, you’ll feel lighter, happier, and more motivated to live your best life.
