We're here to blow the lid off the best-kept secret to stay healthyandhave fun: FIBER.
Now, before you cringe thinkin' about gramma's Metamucil, lemme break down the fiber 411 for ya.
Fiber: Your New BFF
Fiber is such an important and often overlooked component of our diet. If you're following the Hot Body Meal Plan , you're already hittin' those fiber goals from veggies, chia seeds, avocado, brown rice, berries, nuts… well, you get it. High-fiber intake not only helps your digestive tract but is also hugely helpful in having fun, while staying fit.
Here's the scoop: high-fiber intake can significantly contribute toward weight control because you feelfullfrom fiberwithoutadding calories. (Fiber calories aren't absorbed by the body… they, uh, pass right on thru!?)
Party People, Meet Party Muffins
Party muffins are my secret tip that I'm sharing with you babes. They fuel your body, let you have fun, and stay on track! These little snacks are SSD approved and they give your body a boost of fiber.
These Party Muffins arethe perfectparty snack. Let me clarify: I don't usually bring these to a potluck.?Instead, I use them as my personal party fuel.
These lil snackaroos are totally portable. In fact, I've been known to just pop some in my purse so I've got a super delicious, filling snack at the party. That way I'm not tempted to dig into the less-than-healthy options that are sure to be there. If you're not up for BYOMuffin, don't sweat it. Just nibble on a few of them before heading out to be sure you're full and ready for whatever the party throws your way.
Hint hint: No Hangover Zone
FYI, fiber does wonders for stabilizing your blood sugar. That means when you're filled up on fiber, your blood sugar won't dip. Which is a WIN! Because when your blood sugar dips, well… you get hangry and probably snarf up every unhealthy snack in sight. Showing up famished is a sure-fire way to derail your health goals, eat all that junk they're serving AND wake up with a hangover of epic proportions…
