As we all know, the focus of flexible dieting is meeting your macros - protein, carb and fat - targets each day...but what about your micros, for instance - fiber?
We ask our members to track their fiber and to hit a daily minimum so that they’re hitting their micro-nutrients as well as their macro-nutrients for many reasons. Not only does it come with a slew of health benefits but it can make dieting easier, here’s why!
High fiber foods...
What foods should I eat to get my fiber number up?
Small changes like ensuring that you have 2-3 servings of fruits and vegetables at each meal adds up!
Should I supplement?
Although we prefer you get your fiber through whole foods since it ensures that you’re eating plenty of nutrient rich foods, sometimes you may need to give yourself a little boost. Supplements are meant to compliment a well rounded diet, not be the core of it. Remember, fiber supplements still need to be tracked so reference the nutrition information on whatever supplement you use.
This simple turkey burger recipe was modified from a turkey meatball recipe, but we think it's fun to have in slider form! Fire up the grill, or the pan and enjoy.
