I know what you need to lose 5 pounds every week!

Fiber is an important part of a healthy diet. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and helps to lower cholesterol and glucose levels in the body. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and helps to add bulk to the stool and promote regularity. Good sources of fiber include whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables. Eating a diet high in fiber can help reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer. It can also help you feel fuller longer, which can help with weight management. It is important to get adequate amounts of fiber each day, as most Americans do not get enough.
