We hear lots of talk about fiber and getting enough etc, but what about on a low carb high fat diet? Yes, fiber is still your friend! Carbohydrates in the form of fiber have no impact on your insulin levels, therefore does not impede fat loss. In fact, fiber often enhances weight loss by keeping things moving in your digestive system; however, be cautious on your choice of fiber! Just because the front of a product says its high fiber doesn’t mean you should eat it! Read labels carefully! An ideal high fiber product will have very little net carbs (Carbs – Fiber = Net Carb). For instance, in my previous recipe blog I mentioned Garden of Life Super Seed. This is a fiber product that has zero net carbs! There are other similar type products out there. One lower cost option for fiber is to just add ground flaxseed to shakes, soups, whatever! Personally I like to mix it up and use various products. I like Arbonne Fiber Boost also because it is tasteless and mixes easily in shakes. It has 12 grams of fiber and only 3 net carbs.
Garden of Life Super Seed can be found in health food stores and some health conscious grocery stores.
Ground flaxseeds can be found in health food stores or you can buy whole and grind your own.
