Take Fiber To Lose Weight

Daily soluble-finber supplements may help you lose weight by curbing your hunger, according to a recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition. People who took them lost an extra 9 pounds over four months. Experts say eating fiber-rich food each day can work similar magic. A few to try:

OATMEAL: 1 cup cooked, instant or microwaved
POPCORN: 2 cups, air-popped or microwaved
EDAMAME: 1/2 cup, cooked
RASPBERRIES: 1 cup, fresh or frozen
POTATOES: 1 medium with skin, baked or roasted.
