Works For Me Wednesday-Fiber

I read in a book that my mom has that each gram of fiber you eat can burn up to 9 calories.
If this is actually true, it would mean if you ate the recommended 30 grams of fiber a day, you would burn 270 calories/day.

Can you imagine spending your time eating rather than on a treadmill?

Here is a list of high fiber foods.

I’m also curious to find out what your favorite foods that don’t contain High Fructose Corn Syrup are. I guess I should have specified “pre-packaged” foods.

    We eat a lot of Kashi bars around here. I was also happy to find that the Danimals spillable–I mean drinkable–yogurt is HFCS-free. The kids love that stuff.

    Thanks for the heads up about the Arnold bread. It’s much easier on the wallet than the Pepperidge Farm. I can stop rationing slices of bread now!

    Amen for Kashi. I wonder about the Benefiber powder, do you think that works?
