Flirting...Fun or Forbidden?

Forsaking all others is the vow that most take when they became husband and wife. Most would assume that to mean infidelity but what else are you suppose to forsake? What is acceptable in a marriage has to be clearly defined by the couple. Individually we establish boundaries to govern whats permissible in our individual unions.

"I have a married co-worker who CLEARLY has a crush on another married co-worker. And the flirting between the two comes just shy of fireworks at times. Its uncomfortable to watch as a Wifey because it calls me to question how I would feel if my husband were involved in similar interaction with another women. And too, how he would feel if I was flirting with another man. It hasn't become physical so its harmless
,right?" What do you think?

Weight a Minute Monday! Fiber Eats!

As we noted in previous posts, Fiber is the secret to loosing weight without hunger! That sentiment was echoed by, Tanya Zuckerbot, RD and author of The F-Factor Diet. And a US Agriculture study sited that women who increased their fiber intake from 12 grams to 24 grams absorbed 90 fewer calories than women who ate the same foods, but with no fiber.

Fiber is the indigestible part of plants. Its found in your fruits and veggies, whole grains, legumes and beans. As of late, the Fiber craze is catching on, so you will find Fiber added to yogurts, pasta and other foods too.

Here are some easy ways to add fiber to your diet!

- Add a salad to your dinner. (Small one will do) Keep the peels and skins on your fruits & veggies. Thats where are the nutrients are!

- Swap out your white rice for brown.

- Toss chickpeas or kidney beans in your soups.

- Switch to a cereal with at least 5 grams of fiber per serving.

All Natural Snacks:
- 1 Cup Raspberries, 8 grams

- 1 Cup Edamame, 8 grams

- 1 Medium Avocado, 13 grams

- 1/2 Cup of popcorn, 4 grams

Grab & Go Snacks:
- 1 Gnu Walnut & Banana Fiber Bar, 12 grams

- Thomas's Light Multi gran English Muffin, 8 grams

-5 Reeses Sugar Free, mini peanut butter cups, 6 grams

- 1 pack of Hostess Coffee Cakes, 100 calorie pack, 5 grams

- 1 Lean Pocket, Whole Grain, Ham & Cheese, 4 grams

Remember to increase Fiber intake gradually to avoid gas and bloating!

Weight a Minute Monday!

Our Weight a Minute Weekly tip is to eat more Fiber! Why you ask...well fiber has many health benefits and can aid is loosing weight. The goal is to subscribe to a healthier lifestyle and when doing so you will achieve results and more importantly maintain them!

A high-fiber diet has many benefits, which include:
Normalizes bowel movements. (For our crash dieters who are using laxatives for this purpose) Dietary fiber increases the weight and size of your stool and softens it. A bulky stool is easier to pass, decreasing your chance of constipation. If you have loose, watery stools, fiber may also help to solidify the stool because it absorbs water and add
s bulk to stool. For some, fiber may provide relief from irritable bowel syndrome.
Helps maintain bowel integrity and health. A high-fiber diet may lower your risk of developing hemorrhoids, and small pouches in your colon (diverticular disease). Some fiber is fermented in the colon. Researchers are looking at how this may play a role in preventing diseases of the colon.

Lowers blood cholesterol levels. Soluble fiber found in beans, oats, flax seed and oat bran may help lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein, or 'bad,' cholesterol levels. Epidemiological studies have shown that increased fiber in the diet can reduce blood pressure and inflammation, which is also protective to heart health.
Helps control blood sugar levels. Fiber, particularly soluble fiber, can slow the absorption of sugar, which for people with diabetes can help improve blood sugar levels. A diet that includes insoluble fiber has been associated with a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Aids in weight loss. High-fiber foods generally require more chewing time, which gives your body time to register when you're no longer hungry, so you're less likely to overeat. Also, a high-fiber diet tends to make a meal feel larger and linger longer, so you stay full for a greater amount of time. And high-fiber diets also tend to be less 'energy dense,' which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food."

Good information ladies to help maintain that Spice Factor! Next week we will share some high fiber tasty eats!
