When I hit age 40, I was convinced something was wrong with me. I had slowly regained 40 of the 130 pounds that I had lost, and was having a terrible time losing it. Turns out, this is just another joy of growing older. As we age, our metabolism slows. Research shows that a person’s metabolism slows down by about 5% every 10 years, which means you have to eat fewer calories and work out more just to maintain your normal weight (thanks, Mother Nature).
Eating more soluble fiber is one of the most important things you can do to increase metabolism and fight belly fat. Fiber fills you up fast so you eat less and stay satisfied. The USDA recommends we eat 30 grams of soluble fiber each day. Here are just a few great sources of fiber: 1 bowl of steel-cut oats= 9 grams of fiber 1 cup raspberries= 8 grams of fiber 1 cup brown rice= 8 grams fiber.
To help lose the extra weight, I also added PGX to all my meals. I drank a protein shake with PGX, and took up to six capsules with every meal. On ravenous days, I even took two capsules with snacks. Six capsules are the equivalent to four bowls of steel-cut real oatmeal, which is about 36 grams of fiber.
I swear by PGX. I take it daily, and so do my kids. My daughter lost 11 pounds after moving back home and having the PGX shake I make her every morning. I also like putting PGX in batter when baking pancakes, waffles, cookies and brownies. Even my parents take it! I believe there is no better soluble fiber available than PGX. It makes sense to me!
