Take Fiber to Lose Weight

According to a recent British Journal of Nutrition, taking daily soluble-fiber supplements may help you lose weight by curbing your hunger. People who took them lost an extra 9 pounds over four months. Experts say eating fiber-rich foods each day can work similar magic. Here are some few to try:

Oatmeal: (1 cup, cooked, instant or regular)
Popcorn: (3 cups, air-popped or microwaved)
Edamame: (1/2 cup, cooked)
Raspberries: (1 cup, fresh or frozen)
Potatoes: (1 medium with skin, baked or roasted)

Instead of using those soluble-fiber supplements, why don't you try the list above first.
