Many people who read this blog reach out to us on a daily basis to tell us the same thing…
They’ve usually reached the point where their health frustrations are too big to ignore any longer.
They’re embarrassed by how much weight they’ve gained.
Others tell me about how they’re just plain sick of digestive problems and low energy ruining their day.
Well, I’ve got a few tips that will not only give you energy, but will help your body stay as slim and trim as you want it…
How’s that possible? It’s easy — just increase your fiber intake. It’s one of the best things you can do to improve your digestive health. (1)
It may sound simple — but it’s incredibly effective.
So, you may be wondering — I’d love to get more fiber in my diet, but how can I avoid boring meals with no flavor?
Well today, I want to tell you about three foods that might surprise you. Because not only are they tasty, they can be used in tons of recipes and they’re filled with enough fiber to keep your body as healthy as it needs to be.
Ready? Here we go.
High Fiber Surprise #1: Black Beans
Black beans are an excellent source of fiber, a food your “good” gut bacteria needs in order to thrive.
Just a single serving contains a whopping 15 grams — that means you can get half of your recommended amount in just one meal. (2)
High Fiber Surprise #2: Raspberries
One cup of raspberries contains 8 grams of digestion-boosting fiber. And they’re incredibly easy to add to your favorite smoothies or toss them in a bowl with your favorite nuts and some dark chocolate. (3)
High Fiber Surprise #3: Avocados
Now, I know that avocados are all the rage right now. They’re being included in every dish from protein shakes, to brownies — there’s even avocado ice cream!
But what many people may not know is that on top being full of monounsaturated fat, a fat that’s considered “good” since it helps lower your cholesterol, avocados are loaded with 10g of dietary fiber. (4)
This means you can have your cake (yes there are recipes out there for avocado cake!) and improve your health, too.
When you’ve got the right amount of fiber in your diet, those “unhealthy” pounds and the issues that come with them gradually become a thing of the past.
Plus, you’ll get the added benefit of trying out some amazing new recipes this fall season.
That’s a win-win while staying slim!
One more thing: if you’re still looking for other ways to keep that unwanted weight gain at bay, then give Thrive Naturals Garcinia Cambogia a try.
We loaded it with 1500mg of HCA extract and standardized it to 95% — a truly potent blend made for those serious about their weight management.
