Fabulous Fiber!

Fiber is one of the leading causes of weight gain AND disease. The large amount of meat that is consumed around the world sits and, because it lacks in fiber, rots in the stomach and greatly burdens and toxifies the body. Also, because the majority of foods consumed around the world are either cooked or processed they are lacking in enzymes, which our bodies are unable to digest properly, slowing digestion, and thus leading to weight gain, toxicity and disease. Compared to 100 years ago, the diet is severely lacking in fiber. This is one reason we see digestive problems on the rise with diet aids, such as Metamucil and/or laxatives, increasing used to provide a short time solution to an underlying problem. But, I have good news! Today you can make a change in your diet that will greatly increase your chances for a healthy long lifespan and help you to stay lean- EAT FLAXSEEDS!  One of the highest sources of fiber is found in flax seeds, which are also high in B Vitamins & Omega 3 fatty acids, which is an essential fatty acid that the body does not make and requires from the diet. Adding 2 Tablespoons of flax seeds to your diet is a great way to jump start a healthy diet and will give you a beautiful glow that comes from within.

Plus, for every gram of fiber you consume you burn 7 calories effortlessly!
