(NaturalNews) The average individual gains about a pound or two every year. There are now a lot of diet programs and products to remedy the situation, but losing weight can actually be as easy as increasing one's fiber. Various research studies show that eating fiber-rich meals can successfully aid in weight loss. There are plenty of creative and resourceful ways to come up with simple yet effective diet-enriched recipes for weight loss.

One of the most apparent reasons why individuals abhor dieting is because of the impression that they have to bear with bland food - this does not necessarily have to happen. Fiber can be incorporated to a nutritious and tasty diet. The following recipes are a few examples on how individuals can turn an ordinary meal to a weight loss solution and make it flavorful at the same time.

Eggs for breakfast

Eggs are perfect for breakfast and they can be turned into an effective aid to losing weight by combining it with foods that are rich in fiber. For instance, eggs can be cooked and combined with chopped onions and garlic. These scrambled eggs are more flavorful but at the same time contain at least 1 gram of fiber.

Aside from scrambled eggs with onions and garlic, a healthy omelette can also be prepared. Broccoli can be added to the recipe for a good dose of at least 2 grams of fiber.

Fiber in the salad

Chicken and white bean salad can be combined with celery and zucchini. This green salad recipe is not only healthy and nutritious, it can also boost dietary fiber consumption. This healthy green salad can benefit from a good spread of radicchio and escarole.

Burritos

For lunch, instead of tacos, opting for burritos can be of help and further add to fiber intake. This is because flour tortillas used to make burritos are richer in fiber, more than what is usually contained in taco shells. A whole wheat burrito makes an even healthier choice for more fiber. Plus, adding both grassfed organic meat and beans takes the fiber diet to a whole new level.

Fiber to pizza

For individuals who are avoiding adding the extra pounds, pizza is an unnecessary indulgence. But there are actually a lot of ways to make a slice of an otherwise sinful food into something healthier and fiber-enriched. For instance, a slice can benefit from spices. At least a teaspoon of oregano or basil can incorporate 1 gram of fiber to the pizza slice. Eaten with mushrooms, another 1 gram is added to the fibrous meal.

Broccoli for dinner

Broccoli is well regarded produce because of its many health benefits. Cooked broccoli can be served for dinner which can provide anywhere between 3 to 5 grams of fiber. It can be further combined with cauliflower and carrots for additional fiber serving that can absolutely aid with weight management.

The bottom line is there are plenty of simple ways to turn regularly served meals to a healthy weight loss meals. That can be done by simply adding fiber-rich foods and spices to the recipe.
