Pack In Plenty of Fiber

You know that getting enough fiber is good for your body, and can even aid in weight loss, but have you been able to actually start eating more yet? To help you reach your daily goal (Dr. Oz says 25 grams of fiber per day is ideal, especially for women over 40), he suggests creating what he calls a ‘fiber pack.’ "You don’t want to consume all your fiber at once or you’ll get bloated; the Fiber Pack will provide morning fuel and healthy snacking throughout the day so you don’t reach for any harmful goodies like cookies or salty snacks loaded with unhealthy carbs,” says Dr. Oz.

Dr. Oz’s Fiber Pack
1 Banana Walnut Bar = 12g of fiber (eat in the morning)
1 Cup Berry Crumble (carry in a plastic baggie) = 8g of fiber
1 Orange = 3g of fiber
1 Soluble Fiber Single Drink Packet = 3g of fiber
Total: 26g of fiber
