I add extra fluid and 1/3 c. of psyllium to a brownie mix and have 1/4 of a brownie as a post cardio workout treat. Flax was really irritating to my bowel so experiment at home. Getting plenty of magnesium everyday helps with bowel movement too. Also, an extra helping of leafy greens can keep things moving without added calories/carbs.

(good one - thanks).

Ann Louise Gittleman on fiber:

"The reason I include ground up flax seeds and psyllium in The Fat Flush Plan is the importance of fiber. One needs to transport toxins out of the system and absorb many of those toxins, and that's the function of fiber. Ground up flax seeds are also the highest source of lignans, an estrogen modulating substance that is very protective against estrogen dependent cancers-from breast cancer to prostate cancer-so you get a double whammy when you use ground up flax. And it contains 50% soluble fibers and 50% insoluble fibers, so you get the regulating effects of the fiber as well as the effects of blood sugar stabilization, and even cholesterol regulation. So I am the biggest believer in ground up flax. Psyllium, on the other hand, can become gooey; it absorbs lots of water in the system, so people's bowel can become quite dehydrated. Overuse of psyllium can actually strip the bowel of beneficial bacterium."

Berries are high in fiber, especially raspberries. I have been eating beans, raspberries, dried figs, prunes, apricots, and ground flax seed.

I alternate between making bread with brown rice flour and flax seeds, and bean flours. Bean flour has become the secret ingredient whenever I make cookies.

My friend makes up a batch of quinoa and has it for breakfast with milk and raisins or dried apricots. She cooks enough for a few days, and it's filling. I don't know of any high fiber bread although Udi's whole grain bread has some teff in it, which does have some fiber.
If you take stuff to work, how about hummus? You can make it with black beans too. It makes a good spread on the less fibrous GF breads.
Also, GF oats, from Bob's Red Mill or from a couple of places online. I'm struggling with the same thing, but quinoa and fruit and veg are my staples as I have to be careful of beans and corn. Good luck! :)

Hi guys,

I went gluten free about 6 weeks ago. I really have one problem. The amount of fiber in my diet has dramatically gone down. I used to eat a very high fiber bread in the morning, but it seems that all the GF breads are very low fiber. I used to eat close to 50 grams a day and that's what my body is used to. I do eat quite a few fruits and veggies, although I could always eat more. Beans and rice are a nice staple, but not always convenient for me. Any suggestions?
