    Make This Simple Menu Change and Shed Pounds

    Whether you’re looking to slim down, curb cravings, or control blood sugar levels, fiber is your go-to carbohydrate. A recent study revealed that by simply upping your fiber intake (and making no other dietary changes), you can shed pounds and lower your blood pressure. And there's increasing evidence that eating more fiber can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But despite the well-known benefits, chances are you’re still falling short of the recommended 25 to 35 grams (g) per day. The good news is that increasing fiber intake is easy — just add more delicious whole foods to your favorite meals. From quick and easy breakfasts to flavorful dinners, here are some fiber-packed recipes to get you started.
