Fiber Friday-😝

Let’s talk Fiber. #Fiberfriday-why not!

Fiber~ It’s not what it does– It’s what it takes away. 

Did you know that it has the ability to grab excess hormones like estrogen, cholesterol, and potentially harmful compounds and whisk them out of the body. Ridding you if toxins that, if left to linger too long in your digestive tract, could cause damage, including upping your risk of breast and colon cancer, as well as other diseases. 😳

 

Fiber 101: soluble and insoluble 

Insoluble fiber acts like an exfoliant, scrubbing your digestive tract. 

Soluble fiber works like a sponge, soaking up any icky stuff that’s been sloughed off and takes it out of your body. 

Some fabulous fiber boosters are chia and flax:

Try this special mix:

Cinnamon-Dried orange peel-Ground chia 

Mix equal parts in shaker jar and sprinkle on your high fiber foods (whole grain toast, oats, fruit etc) 

You should consume 30-35 grams (35-40 for males) of fiber per day. Start gradually 😉

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
