When I first found myself intolerant of oats, wheat, corn, dairy and some fungi...I made all kinds of changes...Now I find that fruits and vegies are enough fiber, as it is the mainstay of my diet.

Here's my understanding (which is by no means perfect):

Soy is an individual thing. It has nothing to do with gluten, just that people with gluten issues are more likely to have a reaction to other things. I would think that you test this by trial?

MOST oats are WAY too heavily contaminated (they're usually grown in the same fields as wheat and processed on all the same equipment) to be anywhere close to safe. However, there are gluten-free oats which are grown in their own fields and tested for gluten. BUT there are people who still have a reaction to them. I'm not sure if this is related to trace gluten or a similar protein or if it's the same deal as soy, that you're just more likely to have a reaction to other foods.

I've also found that I can't eat commercially grown/processed grits. I thought I was gluten-free but still ended up in the hospital for extreme exhaustion (an overreacting mother) and it ended up being the grits I was having for breakfast. You gotta figure out what works for you.

Since I'm newly diagnosed (via biopsy), I'm trying to learn what I can and cannot eat. I've seen where oats and soy are no-nos but then I've also seen where they are allowed. What is the scoop on soy and oats? I love them both and hope to be able to continue to enjoy them!

I just discovered edamame, which is really high in fiber!

My choices right now are:
Flax seed meal added to…things! Gluten Free muffin mix, a rice-flour gravy, or a serving of yogurt.
Raw nuts and seeds, go anywhere in a zip-lock bag and contain fiber, good oils, and crunch nicely.
Mix it up for variety.

I have made oatmeal in batches of 1-2 cups dried oats with the appropriate amounts of water with a little real butter and whole cream for extra creaminess and then split the batch into single serving containers. I usually uas a 2/3 cup cooked oatmeal as 1 serving. It works really well for grabbing a portion of hearty breakfast on the way out the door. Add a couple boiled eggs and a cup of broccoli to get a great balanced meal to prep on the weekend for school or work. emoticon

You may need to add a small amount of water to the cooked oatmeal to get a good consistency when you reheat your oatmeal.

There's no directions for the microwave because it won't cook through or you'll have a boiled over mess. Try cooking it properly the night before, refrigerate it, then heat it in the microwave in the morning. Make sure you use the reheat and check it after a minute. If it works, you could make 2 servings and that would save you cooking it one night. I know one company was looking into making instant gf oatmeal but I don't think it has happened yet.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I might have to look in to some supplements or something. I don't really like vegetables, and you'd really have to eat a LOT of fruit to get the recommended values that way. I guess I'll have to think about incorporating more beans in my diet. It was just so easy to grab some shredded wheat or whole wheat pasta. I have some GF oatmeal, but I've been hesitant to try it since there's no directions for doing it in the microwave. I'll definitely have it tomorrow morning and see if I can modify it to cook in the microwave. I don't have time to boil water and everything once school starts.

I'm always low on fiber and have no excuse at all, except my lousy eating habits. 8-)

I got one of those fiber supplements to take, but they don't give you all that much.

I've been grinding up flax seeds and adding them to my smoothies and my corn chex. I also try to eat lots of fresh peaches and other fruits (faves right now are nectarines and peaches) Dark green leafy veg like kale have a decent amount of fiber. There are also fiber supplements you can choose that are Gluten Free.

Since I am missing about 1/3 of my colon I have a hard time getting enough fiber. I eat plenty of fruit-veggies and other things that should be working, but doesn't. I now use miralax daily. I sure feel better.

It's timely that you should ask this question. I came across this list yesterday about 'Adding Fiber to Your Gluten-Free Diet' from the website of the Gluten Intolerance Group www.gluten.net/ . It explains the types of fibre, tips and some comparisons which are very interesting and eye opening for me. Brown Rice is the lowest on the list for fibre. The list is a printable sheet or you can save the pdf to your computer for future reference.

You can have certified gluten free oatmeal. Also, brown rice is a quality source of fiber, and are beans and lentils. You can make a bean soup using dried beans. Vegetables are also a good source of fiber.

I eat so many veggies each day that it isn't a problem for me. Try adding flax. Or get some GF oatmeal. Good luck!

I've been dealing with diagnosis and everything since last November, and got my answer in early June. I've been tracking fiber on the Nutrition Tracker for quite some time, since before going GF. Back then, I got plenty of fiber from Frosted Mini-wheats and Oatmeal (I REALLY miss oatmeal). But since going GF, my nutrition report always yells at me for not getting enough fiber. Besides eating more fruit, are there other ways to get a lot of fiber from GF foods? What are some things you all have tried?
