8/23/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 24. August 2012 08:00

 Hi!  It is important when trying to create a clean diet  that you eat a good balance diet of veggies/fruit/lean protein/water/whole grains with a small amount of healthy fats ( I know, easier said than done).  It is important when choosing these foods that a proper amount of fiber is included in the foods that you pick.  Fiber seems to be added to a lot of products on the supermarket shelves, but if your trying to move toward unprocessed foods(clean eating), make sure they are in your food choices.   You really can't have too much, and eating high fiber foods makes you feel more full...which will cause you to eat less and therefore loose weight due to lower daily calorie intake.  The recommended daily intake for women 50 and under is 25 grams of fiber (* average is 15 grams).  It is helpful to keeping your internal systems running efficiently to bump that 15 grams number UP!

Try adding a fiber supplement (but try a few different ones if they give you abdominal pain or excess gas), or add legumes( beans- try washing canned beans in the sink before eating, or soak dried beans overnight before cooking them.  Or try Beano before you eat them), lentils, oats, raspberries, apples, soy beans, or sweet potatoes (Muscle and Fitness magazine, February 09).
