Fiber, what is it good for?

Fiber slows the rate at which your body digests food, so your energy levels remain more stable and you feel full longer.  Because you feel full longer, you will reduce your caloric intake and because fiber is harder to burn your body actually has to WORK to use it as an energy source.  Remember to drink your water which helps fiber move through the digestive tract. Good sources of fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes.
