Weight Loss part 7: Talking About Fiber

Part of any weight-loss nutrition plan is understanding how the different components affect your body's metabolism and functioning. It's very complex with lots of moving parts, and is enough to send anyone running for a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles to soothe your weary soul. I've been working seriously on improving my health through nutrition and I want to share some of the things I've learned. Maybe it will inspire someone else on their journey. I'm not a doctor, or a nutritionist, or any sort of expert. I'm just a regular 50-year-old woman trying to figure out what works for me. I hope there's some helpful information here for you.

For a long stretch, maybe 5 or 6 years, we have had so many reasons to stay home. Kids, anxious pets, viral pandemic - they all gave us more than enough pause to do anything that was just the two of us.
