I have to be careful about beans and cannot eat kidney beans. I do try to have them once a week in something, more in winter because of soups etc. I use yams, sweet potatoes and squash more. My night vision actually improved! I stay away from tumeric and cumin, coriander. Curries make me ill. But I use garlic and I have ginger everyday, as well as lots of herbs. My 'tea' of lemon, ginger and honey kept me well all winter. After years of not being able to lose weight without being hungry, I've finally had success with Dr. Alejandro Junger's program that was featured on Dr. Oz as the '3 Day Cleanse'. It's really about healing the gut. I should put the link on my Sparkpage because it has been so great for me. I'm not someone who jumps on the bandwagon for the latest 'health' fix or miracle but his explanation and program made sense to me. Otherwise it is primarily whole and home cooked foods, no preservatives, nitrates etc.

You are welcome. I am always curious about measuring the right tools for the nice results and going to the basics works for me. I love my beans they are versatile with the right spicing and enhance flavor instead of drowning it in excitotoxins. (excitotoxins hate me and my gut for the evidence shows in the fast aging erosion and the faster hole repair that was my gut.) To add flavor zing to ‘a serving of repair’; I use turmeric. Do you use it much?

I'm right there with you. My fiber intake is not where it needs to be. I've been trying to eat more berries and beans. I'll get there.

Fiber is very important for hours of hunger-free satisfaction and creating a little warm gut nest to last a few hours. Diabetics, insulin resistant people and hypoglycemic persons can benefit from the slow to digest and stabilizing effects to less blood sugar spiking causing gas or hunger teasingly wanting a sugary snack. More fiber intake can lower cholesterol of the LDL type and helps fight colon cancer. With this wonderful habit of a high in fiber diet a person can lose weight and maintain it better. The suggested mix servings of two incomplete proteins complement each other so beans and brown rice are a fit here.

It takes gradual small servings to prepare a gut for the high volume of fiber so large servings may be tolerated after a few weeks of use as a meal eaten often. The average American, if there is such a person, gets about 15 grams of fiber per day. The national Cancer Institute recommends 25-35 grams of fiber per day. Here is a simple example; ˝ serving of common pinto beans; 8 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber with no dietary fat or sugar.

Recipe: I soak 2 cups of beans in 4 cups clean water 12-24 hours. They will double in volume. Sometimes soaking for 2 days with a rinse in between can germinate for a sweeter flavor and ease of protein digestion. Then after rinsing off the foam with the soak water add 4 cups of cooking water or until 2-3 inches of water can be measured ensuring the beans are under water. I add no salt. Much of the water does evaporate or get absorbed while cooking. I turn on the crock pot to high and monitor until fully cooked some hours later minimum of 4-6. A soft bean may become a bean dip with veggies or chips as scoopers. The firm but fully cooked beans make a nice chili or soup or hot meal with rice. It can become a three bean salad for cold options. I freeze ˝ cup servings of plain fully cooked beans for quick meals and they require less refrigeration for lunch box meals. The several rinsing steps help remove the coating on the bean hulls for less tummy gas later.

My own intolerance to sulfur has me selecting beans without pigments. I choose Cannelini beans. They are roughly pigment free and as often as possible available at a good price organic. They come in small beans the size of a great northern bean or almost as large as a lima bean.

I once purchased several pounds from the whole Foods Market bulk bin to find when I got home that the batch was moldy. I got my money back. Inspect them thoroughly for irregular color and shape. I average less than 1 percent bean volume loss after culling out impure ones before soaking.

corn is not a vegetable it is a grain and chia seeds are great and also psyllium is good too and if you combine them with ground flax seeds it slows the gelling process down so that you can drink it.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thanks guys! I am trying to up my fiber through berries (when the grocery store has good ones that aren't too expensive- downfall to small town living). I may have to looks into chia seeds next time I'm in a big store. I'm glad to hear that corn is not a favorite. I am trying to reduce my tortilla intake (started relying on it too much for a bread substitute lately, mostly out of ease).

Another vote for more fruit and greens! I put chia seeds, different fruits, and spinach in my smoothie every morning, and for a snack, I'll have hummus and carrots/cucumbers. I also have lentils almost every weekday for lunch.

I put ground flax in my smoothie or on my cereal each morning and in any breads or muffins I make, even if they are from a mix. Also, sweet potatoes, yams and winter squashes are good too , as well as being nutritious filling substitutes for white starchy foods.

I agree with eating plenty of fruit and vegetables. I also put chia seeds, hemp seeds OR flax seeds in my smoothie. (I found out that combining them was a little TOO much fiber for me ) emoticon
I have also mixed ground flax seeds with almond butter and rolled them into balls and had them as a snack.

non-starchy veggies or beans are the best fiber sources, I eat lots of broccoli, cauliflower, greens like collard/kale/chard, salads made with mixed greens and romaine, stuff like that. Also, it's berry season, and raspberries and strawberries are amazing fiber sources.

I would advise upping your fruit and veggie intake over the starches. I have learned the hard way relying on those specialty products can backfire. I now can't eat very many of them and corn rips me up BAD! It didn't until I relied on it too much as a substitute. I never had a problem with fiber eating lots of fruits and veggies. I would check, as you are tracking, if numbers are correct. for example, if you track spinach and the listing says 0 fiber you know its wrong, look for another entry. Some are not correct on here.

I discovered I was gluten intolerant about 8 mos. ago. Stomach aches have gone away but I am noticing a different problem. I have been tracking my fiber intake and realized I am pretty low. I had been going more "primal" with my eating habits. I decided putting back corn products and quinoa would help. It has but I'm still not getting near enough. What do you all do for fiber intake? I try to avoid supplementation, but will put psyllium husk in smoothies when I make them.
