Berry Berry Sauce

While there may not be a magic weight loss pill, one nutrient comes very close.

Research shows that those who are able to lose weight and keep it off consume an average of 33% more fiber-rich foods than their overweight counterparts.

How to Lose Weight if You Don’t Like Healthy Food

Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds are all excellent sources of fiber; but so many ask, “How can I lose weight if I don’t like healthy foods?”

Here’s a sweet way to get more slimming fiber in your diet.  Berries!!

Berry, Berry Good!

Besides being delicious, berries provide several important nutrients, such as vitamin C, Vitamin K, manganese, folate, … and super slimming fiber!

Fantastic Fiber

Studies show that fiber not only helps to burn fat, but it also suppresses the appetite.

A breakfast of this delicious Berry Berry Sauce over Wonderful Oat Waffles provides you with 27(!!) grams of fat-fighting fiber!  That’s almost twice as much fiber as the average American eats in a whole day!!

    You might want to add Raspberries if you really want to use a magic weight loss ingredient.

    Even Dr Oz says so. :)

    Hi Josephine,
    You're right; raspberries are extremely high in fiber. We sometimes add other berries to our Berry Berry Sauce – like raspberries (and blackberries, too). We really like frozen raspberries over our hot cereal as well.
    Thanks for the reminder :)
