The ideal “weight loss pantry’ is an article series dedicated to uncovering what SHOULD be in your fridge (or pantry) if you hope to lose weight in 2018. So much focus is placed on what you shouldn’t eat if you’re dieting, so let’s check out what you should.

Stock up on: Fibre

One of the things your body really needs in order to get the digestive tract on track is a lot of fibre.

Fibre scrubs out your insides and makes excretion possible. It also makes you feel fuller than you would without it. One of the reasons you can eat so much processed food is that it is so low in fibre that you never really get filled up. That’s great news if you’re SELLING the food, not so awesome if you’re the person eating it.

Fibre is vitally important for weight loss and health, and the way you SHOULD be getting your 30g (or so) per day is by eating a lot of fruits and veggies. But many of us don’t always get that right.

Fibre supplements!

If you’re not able to get your daily fibre from your food (sometimes it’s just not possible to fit in 3 wholesome meals in a day)… you can supplement your diet with additional fiber.

Psyllium husk is really great to use to bulk out the fibre numbers in your eating plan, making it possible to get what you need without too much worry. The powdery substance can be mixed with water (which adds to your hydration), and downed in less than three minutes. So easy!

Get some at your local health food store, take once per day, and enjoy more successful weight loss and a happier digestive system almost immediately.
