Adding a Fiber Guideline to my Plan

On the fiber front... after some analysis I discovered that with planning I can achieve healthy fiber intake every day so I have added a fiber guideline to my plan.  I am trying to get at least 25 g of fiber per day.  This is a fun guideline because I am finding yummy foods that are good fiber sources.

Weight loss progress continues...
