6 Weight Loss Mistakes

6. Lack of Fiber

In addition to getting enough protein, you always want to make sure you’re eating enough fiber every day. Viscous fiber turns into a water-holding gel that will make you feel full for longer. When you add fiber to your diet, you’ll reduce your calorie intake overall because you won’t be hungry as often.

Keep in mind that you’ll want your fiber to come from actual foods instead of a supplement. Most fiber supplements won’t help you much when it comes to weight loss. Beans, oats, whole grain bread, and certain green vegetables are excellent sources of fiber.
