But this is only the beginning: fibers can help you in many ways to achieve a leaner body. "They make the body work better as a whole and, consequently, stop accumulating excesses in the waist," says Andrea Santa Rosa Garcia, a nutritionist from Rio that instructed Juliana Paes to exchange the white rice for the integral, as well as add other grains ( lentils, chickpeas) and cereals (quinoa, oat bran) in the diet to dry the last few kilograms left over from pregnancy.
At the request of FIT 360 USA, Andrea elaborated the following menu - she suggests balanced meals with all the important nutrients to the organism, which includes ideal doses of fiber. But to get the expected result, also capriche in the water (drink at least 2 liters per day). "The consumption of liquids is important to hydrate the fibers. Otherwise, they increase the production of gases and dry the intestine, compromising the weight loss. "
