These are just a few of the more common vegetables that are high fiber food choices. Notice that portion servings are large, so they are filling. If you eat 2 cups of cooked vegetables for dinner, you will not be as prone to be a night time nibbler, because you will be so full! Filling up on non-starchy vegetables is a great lifestyle solution, if you want to lose weight too!

Legumes are a great substitution for meat in your meal, because they contain protein and fiber. Add them to Chilies, soups, or as a topping to veggie salads. Try different varieties and different cultural recipes. Lentils and beans are very tasty when paired with great spices like cumin, curry, and ginger.

Nut servings should be small, due to their high fat content. Count out 20 to 25 almonds or 10 to 12 walnuts for a planned snack. They are healthy, but caloric. If they are a trigger food for you, skip them.




Quinoa Salad - High Fiber Foods


High fiber food choices are a great addition to your healthy eating plan. Do not buy into the low carbohydrate diets that say you must give up carbohydrates to lose weight. You must avoid portion distortion and choose healthy fiber choices, rather than refined, highly processed options! Increasing fiber in your diet is a healthy diet habit that you need to adopt!
