King of your Throne!

Poop. There, I said it.  We all do it but not many want to admit it.  Who cares! It's one of the main bodily functions that keeps us healthy, detoxed and feeling like the King of our own Throne.  Think of fiber as your bodies policeman that takes all the bad guys with him as he leaves your ass!
96% of Americans are deficient in the 30 grams of recommended fiber. And with all the processed junk we eat and supersized fast food we are literally full of shit! We gotta supersize our bowel movements. Fiber consumption is your wingman in supporting regularity.  In addition, it helps maintain healthy cholesterol and keeps you fuller longer so you won't be reaching for that sugar spiking donut mid morning that inevitably will leave you feeling bitchy and constipated. Empty calories lead to an empty toilet bowl.

So what foods contain fiber? Any fruits with a seed or a skin.  That's where the goods are!  Make a fun sexy dessert, dip your berries in whipped cream, or even yourself. I don't care, whatever you gotta do to get the fiber in and the crap out!

I've got another meaning to "go green" for you.  Broccoli, kale, swiss chard and even celery! Green goes in, brown goes out.  Expand your horizons with chia seeds, hemp seeds and flaxseed meal...just one Tablespoon of these super foods provides an abundance of protein, fiber- tons of vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids. I get a health hard on over the nutrition profile of those little guys! 

Beans and whole grains...don't be afraid of complex carbs you need them. Be afraid, hell be scared shitless of missing out on nutritious fiber. Landing you at the risk of diabetes, various cancers, metabolic syndrome, obesity, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure.  Your new fecal inducing friend can help protect you from the above while doing its business down below.
         Make going Number 2 your number 1 priority!
