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 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.
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?
