Fiber, Infused Water, & Weight Loss

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.
