Continuing the theme of all things fiber, this weeks product I love is Fiber One bars. These things are crazy yummy and have 9 grams of fiber per bar. 9 grams is a lot for a little bar (35% of your daily fiber in fact). They also only have only 140 calories and are low in fat. Also they are endorsed by Bob Greene (aka Oprah’s trainer) so that adds a significant “cool” factor. Why can’t I get away from Oprah this week???
Now for the bad…they do contain high fructose corn syrup which is a big no-no in our house. We turn a blind eye to that when it comes to these bars cause we love them sooo much. Still, General Mills, if you are reading this, get rid of that stuff. Also if you are reading, please send me cartons of these things for free!
Finally, continuing with our theme of too much information about my bodily functions, these babies give you some bad gas. To be fair, when you increase fiber in your diet that is usually an unwelcome side effect (unwelcome to me…the hubby and Lily think anything gas-related is a plus). However, when you lose 20 pounds from all the extra fiber in your diet, people will be to busy envying your killer bod to0 notice the stench.
