Citrus fruits have fiber. Check for some cereals, Kashi and Fiber One make good ones. Beans. Beans are high in fiber.

I can't answer your question about whether 16-ish grams of fiber is okay. Maybe post the question on one of the message boards?

Here's the link to the Diet and Nutrition message boards. You'd get a better answer there.

I also usually eat just under on both of those nutrients. I'm a college student, so I can't afford to buy very much in the line of expensive food. What is cheap and easy with fiber? I can get the calcium if I try, but I'm at a loss for fiber.

Also, is it a big deal if my fiber is 16 ish daily?

I like the Fiber One bars for added fiber. They have sweetness to them, so they can help with a cookie craving and they taste really good!

I also eat low-fat string cheese for snacks. Hope you find something that works for you!

I used to have the same problem with fiber but now I actually have the opposite! I eat lots of vegies and fruit, steel cut oats and whole grain breads and tortillas. For calcium I take a chewable supplement. I buy them in chocolate flavor for a daily treat!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did do.

I too have trouble getting enough fiber and calcium. I take calcium supplements.
If you go to the nutrition articles they have a couple there that list the foods you need to increase amounts.

Everyday when I run my nutrition report based on what I have eaten for the day, I find my fiber and calcium to be low. I keep thinking I am eating enough, but the report tells me otherwise. Any foods you folks use that are full of fiber and calcium?
