I love the tortilla's. I keep them in the house at all times. Great for wraps, a medium burrito, a large taco, warmed up then add 1 Tbsp. peanut butter, Quesadilla's with veggies and 1/4 cup reduced fat cheese. The options are endless. And yes very low-cal!

I haven't seen the fiber one bars smaller yet I will have to keep my eye out on that. I do have the brownies in the house but forget they are there.

I usually shop at Sams club for the tortillas (2/$4.00) and fiber one products because they come out cheaper, that's probable why I haven't seen the smaller one's

Oh also Thomas Lite English Muffins 100 cal and 8 grams of fiber. Great for sandwiches, breakfast with egg, mini veggie pizza's

Those tortillas are seriously lo-cal! The Fiber One Chewy bars are awesome - they make a smaller one now too, 90 calories and 5 grams fiber, just like the brownies. The breads are worth trying, although the calories are high! 100-110 calories a slice but, 48-51% fiber requirement for 2 slices.

I have been tracking my Fiber all along.That is a big thing for me with having hypothyroidism. I usually eat between 25-40 gm a day.

Here are some foods I eat that are great for increasing the fiber

Ole Extreme Wellness high fiber tortillas Tomato basil or Spinach and Herb, 68-71 calories and 12 grams of fiber per tortilla.

Fiber One Oats and Chocolate fiber bars, 140 calories and 9 grams of fiber. These are great for when you want something sweet I call them my candy bars.

Orville Redenbachers Smartpop pop corn, 100 calories and 4 grams of fiber per serving.

Hot Oat Bran cereal, 120 calories and 5 grams fiber

Double fiber Wheat bread 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber

Beans, fruits, vegetables.

Fruits and veggies are good sources-so are beans. I never get enough that way so I eat a lot of brown rice and all my sandwiches are on Fiber One bread these days.

I will add fiber :), I did add sodium which is very helpful on making me mindful of that. I have no issues with water intake, if anything I probably drink too much :P

Fiber. This is the only nutrient I added to my nutrition tracker. I try to get at least 25 grams daily and I swear it really helps! Fiber keeps me full longer, and that helps prevent to mindless eating I tend to do if I get even the tiniest bit hungry. I also drink more water (I made the mistake of not drinking enough and suffered the mysterious "digestive distress") to make sure the fiber does its job properly. And it works on the digestion issues really well--I have gotten rid of 99% of my stomach issues--even dairy doesn't bother me like it used to.

Have you tried increasing your daily fiber intake? What fiber-rich foods do you love?
