You are NOT doomed to be overweight! And, it is never too late to take charge of your health.

The thing with fiber if you’re not used to it is you need to add it in small portions, little by little, to build yourself up. I easily eat 50+ grams of fiber a day with no GI issues, but I didn’t get there overnight. Start small, and just add a little more each week. Fruits and veggies are the best things you can eat if you’re trying to lose weight because they will keep you full. Your body will adapt if you take it in small steps. Start with a small side salad with your dinner at night, or a handful of spinach in your morning smoothie, and go from there – you’ll be surprised that over time you will be able to add more and more.

You can do it!

Trying to lose weight, but it seems like the slightest amount of fiber throws me off so I guess I’m doomed to be overweight! 🙁
