Thank you for your responses, everyone.
My doctor suggested I take one for better regularity. I tried to increase my fiber intake but I found I was having a hard time because I eat a pretty healthy diet already and adding fiber just seemed to increase the amount of food I was eating, which wasn't what I wanted. Then I just stopped trying, and realized I really need to do something.
Yesterday I was thinking -- I could add ground flax seeds to more of my food. That way, it's supplement-ISH but it's still food.
I'm currently eating chocolate oatmeal. With 1/4 c. oatmeal, 2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa, and 2 T. ground flax, I'm getting 7.2g of fiber right there. Before I was gluten-free, I ate oatmeal nearly every day. (Gluten free oats are more expensive, and I found a lot of other interesting things to eat, so I scaled back on oatmeal.)
I appreciate the thinking-out-loud aspect of the message boards -- thanks again! More thoughts and ideas are welcomed!
