Fight Fat With Fiber

If you're one of many Americans - including the nearly 32 percent of overweight or at-rick-of-becoming-overweight U.S. children ages 6 to 19- who struggle to keep off extra pounds, take note: Doubling fiber intake may translate to 10 pounds less in yearly weight gain. Not only does fiber prevent fat absorption, it also helps you feel full longer.

High-fiber foods help satisfy hunger partly because they require more chewing, are typically bulky, and tend to stay in digestive track longer. Some are calorie free. But most children get only half or less of the recommended amount of daily dietary fiber.

And here are some other ways for you live a healthy lifestyle. DO NOT BUY ANY FOOD WITH INGREDIENTS THAT YOU CAN'T READ OR UNDERSTAND. Anything that are not natural ingredient are not healthy for you. Eat a lot of fruit, fruits are good for you. And stay away from free made breakfast, lunch or dinner. Do not eat anything with high fructose corn syrup, fully or partially hydrogenated oil, glycerin, and mono-glycerin.
