Dr. J here,
This week we are going to discuss adding more fiber to your diet. Fiber is important for regular digestion and processing food. This can give your body a schedule when it comes to using the bathroom. There are other health benefits such as lowering cholesterol and helping to control blood sugar. Try this...
Increase Fiber With Food Choices:
Slice up raw vegetables and fruits. Put them in baggies to make them easy to access and take on the go. Start your day with high fiber breakfast with oatmeal or high fiber cereal. Add some peas or beans to your salad.
When you are shopping for groceries, ask for high fiber foods and start adding them to your grocery list. Hope you find some ways to change your diet this week!
Until next time,
