Fill up on fibre. Like protein, fibre helps to manage blood sugars, appetite, cravings and weight. It also is "indigestible" meaning that it provides minimal calories. Include at least 1 serving of fibre rich food at every meal and snack. 1 serving = 1 slice of whole grain bread, ½ cup of whole grain cereal, ¾ cup of beans or legumes, ¼ cup of nuts or seeds, 1 medium piece of fruit, or ½ cup of raw or cooked vegetables.
