Dietary fiber and drinking lots of water go hand-in-hand when it comes to weight loss. Fiber fills you up for hours at the cost of only a few calories. And when you drink a lot of water after eating fiber, you make your digestive tract more efficient. All of this adds up to easy weight loss. I can say this confidently because I’ve lost 20 pounds in the last three months (yes!).
I apologize for the product plug, but GG Scandinavian Bran CrispBread Crackers are amazing. These low-carb, high-fiber crackers are made from slow-roasted wheat bran. Each large cracker has a measly 25 calories and 3.5g net carbs. And yes, they are dry, but if you add a topping and drink some infused water while eating, the crackers are quite tasty.
Every day for lunch I eat two GG crackers with a smear of hummus or feta spread and some olives, as pictured. Then I drink tea or infused water until dinnertime. This keeps me filled up all day! The added fiber also keeps me regular in the bathroom. It’s just a total win in my book.
These crackers are the rage of diet books like the F-Factor. I have not read the book, but many other nutritionists recommend the crackers while also noting that it is imperative to drink a lot of water while eating fiber-rich foods. If you are reading this blog, then you probably fit into the “heavy water drinker” category
P.S. GG Crackers are hard to find in stores. You can sometimes find them in Whole Foods. I buy mine off of Amazon in packs of 5.
