You can find high amounts of fiber in foods such as berries, broccoli, beans, nuts, barley, etc. There are many foods that you can add a few beans to, to increase your fiber in a meal. Toss some on top of your salad, or in your soup for instance.

Most fruits and vegetables have good amounts of fiber in them and will up your intake of fiber. Adding some fresh veggies to your meals and fresh fruits to your snacks are healthy recipes for weight loss that are quick and easy, so adding fiber doesn't have to be a long and painful process.

  4. I especially agree with the idea that people psychologically mistake their hunger when really they are just thirsty... its about reprogramming your habits to properly co-ordinate your physical neuronal responses. I wrote a humorous take on all this here: http://dr-v.org/2011/06/the-chopper-says-about-diet-your-teeth/ As a dentist I notice that I often crave ice cream late at night, but really just a glass of water quenches that thirst!!

  7. So True, And one of the best things fiber does is absorb much of the toxins that the body takes in. That's why they call raw carrots and other root vegetables the colon clean sweepers. Hey! we are live and fresh, and the majority of what we eat should be live and fresh.
