Fiber and Diet

       Back a couple of months ago, I visited a new doctor. My first woman doctor and younger then me. She doesn't seem to be a pill pusher. We talked and I showed her my test results from last years Health Fair . The results showed my sugar and cholesterol were slightly high. She advised me to get 30 -35 grams of fiber a day. I never realized how much that is. Its really hard to do. Young Living's "Balance Complete" has 11 grams per serving and that makes it a lot easier. But to get that much fiber in a "normal" diet takes a lot of work.
       I just learned today that 1oz of Pumpkin seeds has 11 grams of fiber so, I'll be eating a lot more of them. I'm pretty good about eating whole wheat grains and all that but with out the "Balance Complete", its a task to get the amount of fiber the doctors are recommending.
