Diet Tip: Eat Fiber-Rich Foods Throughout the Day

If you're trying to lose weight, you're probably modifying your diet and eating fewer calories than you burn. If this causes you to feel hungry, then you're going to end up eating those missing calories and not be able to reach your goal. To quell that hunger feeling, you want to make the calories that you do eat count. Since foods rich in fiber keep you feeling full and satisfied longer than other foods, you want to make sure that every time you eat, you include high-fiber foods. Some great choices are fresh fruits, veggies, dried fruits, beans, nuts, and whole grains. Also, try to switch out your old pasta, cereal, and bread with whole-grain versions. Not only will this keep your hunger at bay, but eating fiber throughout the day will help you get the 30 grams of fiber you should be getting anyway.

Hey! Don't knock the prunes. I love those things. But you're right - who needs Metamucil?

Some of my favorite snacks that seem to curb my hunger: Apples with Peanut Butter Whole grain crackers w/ FF cottage cheese A few slices of real cheese A whole grain wrap w/ faux meat (soy stuff) and 2% cheese slices 1 cup of whole grain cereal (dry) Glass of milk, or cup of decaf Plain rice cake with peanut butter Grapefruit Oatmeal w/ dried fruit Oatmeal bars/ granola bars (low cal ones of course w/ low sugar) And I make sure I drink a full glass of water with each snack.. sometimes a glass of water is all you need anyways & if all else fails, I pop in a piece of sugar free gum!

I had beans with my supper but I was still starving after I ate. I snack on fruit all day and honestly don't find that it fills me up or keeps me fuller longer.
