My Monday night weigh in at Weight Watchers was not very eventful. I told you all about my 2 pound gain last week, however I didn’t weigh in. I knew unless I had lost the two pounds I gained last week, I knew it wasn’t going to happen.
I weighed at home Monday morning and was down 0.4 so I still knew I was going to be up when I weighed in. Sure enough, a gain of 1.8. Surprisingly, I wasn’t too upset about it.
I guess having spent a weekend in Philly, I was OK with not “technically” gaining.
This week’s meeting topic was all about fiber. Yep…we talked about poop and the digestive system. It wasn’t totally about poop but there was quite a bit of poop talk going on.
It was a very interesting topic. Did you know that women are supposed to have 25 grams of fiber in a day and men are supposed to have 38? That is a heck of a lot of fiber.
IF you eat your 4 servings of fruit and veggies with an additional two servings, you have met the requirement. If you are like me, you don’t get your 4 servings so that is not happening.
I also learned that corn has a higher fiber serving than brown rice. That was surprising to me! One food rich in fiber is black beans. Try and add black beans to more recipes to get more fiber in your diet.
I need to make a conscious effort to try and eat more fiber. I can’t just eat three fiber one bars or brownies and call it a day. I mean, I could but holy cow…the gas would be astronomical. Poor hubby if that happens!
This week, let’s make an effort to try and eat more fiber rich foods.
Do you get enough fiber in your diet or are you lacking in that area like me?
