Default Fiber? No problem getting enough anymore

LOL I look back on this thread that I started when I first joined FD, started eating clean for the first time in my life. I think I was shocked at how little fiber I was getting when I started tracking (6-8 grams). So 30 grams of daily fiber seemed like it was in outer orbit for me.

Now without really trying, I'm getting at least 25 grams of fiber a day. My reports tell me I'm averaging around 32 grams weekly. A few times, by eating high fiber, low fat burritos shells along with black beans (homemade) I got a whopping 66 grams of fiber in one day. I didn't go hungry that day even though my calorie intake amounted to 1500.

Moral of the story? The journey continues!

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
