It’s a busy time of year. We’re all rushing to complete our shopping lists and make the most of the holiday season. But you don’t need energy drinks for your holiday power boost. Registered dietitian nutritionist Felicia Stoler, DCN, MS, RD, FACSM told New Jersey’s 12 to Your Health viewers that getting more fiber may help. She explained that Sunfiber, Regular Girl’s fiber source, offers numerous health benefits which just may give you more get-up-and-go.
Many energy drinks contain large amounts of caffeine and sugar. While they may give you a boost, they may not be the healthiest addition to your diet. Another option is to amp up your diet. “This time of year, it’s important to consume low-glycemic and high-fiber foods,” said Stoler.
The celebrity wellness expert is a big fan of fiber. “Fiber helps lower your cholesterol,” she said. “It also helps manage the glycemic index of foods, and it helps you to feel fuller longer.” Getting adequate fiber also helps you stay regular. When your insides are functioning well, you may have the confidence and energy you need to get that pile of holiday cards addressed.
Fill up on your favorite seasonal foods such as winter squash and apples. They’re loaded with fiber. So are beans, but if they don’t agree with your digestive system, you have options. We were pleased when Stoler also suggested Regular Girl as healthy fiber source. “I love that it’s a gluten-free prebiotic fiber with added probiotics,” said Stoler. Regular Girl contains six grams of clinically proven Sunfiber which supports intestinal health without any embarrassing side effects. Regular Girls also contains synbiotic probiotics to help maintain balance. “It’s a great way to give your colon a workout,” she said.
Regular Girl is available in a convenient pouch or grab-and-go packets. “I love that it comes in these single-serve packets,” Stoler beamed. “You don’t even have to measure it out.” Just sprinkle Regular Girl into your favorite non-carbonated beverage or onto your food. You’ll notice no change in its taste, texture or flavor, but you may notice a more energized you.
