If I could scream it from the rooftops I would. Eating more fiber is key to healthy eating!!
As a model I tried pretty much every single diet out there, but it wasn’t until I met Rebbeca Baer, one of my health heroes in my book, The Everyday Supermodel, that I really looked at eating healthy in a whole new light. Before my wedding I wanted to lose some weight and I met with Rebecca who truly enlightened me to look at eating in new way.
You can calorie count until the cows come home, but you aren’t going to make any fundamental health changes until you really look at what you are eating. What do you need to eat? The answer is simple. More fiber!
According to Rebecca, the majority of women are eating and dieting the wrong way. She says there isn’t a soul who steps into her office who eats enough fiber or vegetables. Yours truly included. What I loved about a fiber-focused plan is that it’s sustainable day to day. It doesn’t require me to buy a bunch of special foods or be puritanical in my eating habits. I can be on a television set, out with the baby, racing around in my car, or with my friends who eat rubbish, and I can stick to the diet and feel good about it.
Upping my fiber and eating the right amount of protein worked for me. It waged war on my extra weight and currently helps to keep it off. Although there are plenty of “diets” that help you lose weight in the short term, the real key is finding something that is sustainable for the long term and that you will stick with.
Benefits of a High-Fiber Diet
What is my “secret” method of fiber intake?
I love GG Crispbread. I take them everywhere! You can use them for snacks as well as part of a main meal. They are the perfect building block for “fiber focused” eating. To show you how easily you can incorporate them into your diet, I raided my fridge and made nine different options just from what I had on hand.
