What do you know about fiber? Are you getting enough? How much fiber does one need to consume each day to get the recommended daily amount?
Some fad diets even cut fiber completely out. That’s not healthy! In my quest to try learn how to do things the right way, I participated in the Fiber Friend Faceoff sponsored by Fiber One. This week the game tests your knowledge of foods that would contain up to the 25 grams recommended each day. The trick is choosing well-balanced foods that provide fiber and other important nutrients. These include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts. In future weeks you will continue to face off against an opponent to help learn about the additional health benefits of fiber.
How would you do in the challenge? Head over to the Fiber Friend Faceoff to find out. You get to create your own character to participate in the game show, and there are coupons for the Fiber One product of the week upon completion. You can play every day through April 11.
You can also win some fabulous prizes just for entering:
Grand Prize: Luxury Spa Trip in Arizona
Weekly Prizes: Flip Video™ camcorders
Daily Prizes: $50 Cash Cards
|I’ll even start the winning by giving away THREE Fiber Friend Gift Baskets! You will receive a VIP coupon to try a complimentary 4-pack of Fiber One yogurt, a nutrition journal, water bottle, pedometer with calorie counter, and a kitchen scale.
I am not a big yogurt fan, but I actually really enjoyed the Fiber One peach version. It’s not grainy, and the portion is slightly smaller than other 8oz containers that seem like too much.
