Gearing up for Holiday Chaos & The Skinny on Fiber

My Weight Watcher meeting leader has been having us pass in our *completed* trackers every week through the holiday season for a raffle. Along with continued blogging, that has really kept me on track with my nutritional and fitness goals throughout maintenance. Today I was looking at this weeks tracker and noticed that I've been filling up the page every day without going over my daily POINTS target as compared to the last two weeks when I might have only filled half a page.

Not only does it look good on paper, but I feel great. Snacking and having small meals more often has kept my hunger at an even keel and the constant tracking has spiked my vigilance to adhering to the good health guides and incorporating many filling foods. Many of the foods I eat are full of fiber, but are all those high-fiber products worth the extra dough?

This morning I was confused when trying to figure out the points in my coffee because I used Splenda with fiber along with 2 PONTS worth of creamer. I went on the internet in search of an answer and found that no, the sweetener with fiber does not reduce the point value of my coffee. The reasons for that answer have caused me to be hungry for more info.

Look back soon for "The Skinny on Fiber"
