RKING10, I started being gluten free in June013. There was so much fresh veg and fruit, I was good. But, as time moved on I felt I wanted more. I find I can have some Oats, but I may have a problem with a lot each day. I tried Oatmeal each morning, but had a problem. I am planning to try it again, to make sure that was a real problem.

Any way, to the point.. I kicked out the money and bought JUDI'S Millet and Chia bread. It is expensive and 2 slices(small) are 150 calories. But, really make me feel better and help with the fiber. It is worth it to me. I also had my first sandwich since going GF.

I started eating Hummus with my carrots and celery for the fiber. Beans and legumes are good for fiber. I never had lentil soup until I went looking for fiber rich foods and found that I do like it but in limited quantities.
Also I find that potatoes have lots of fiber. Instead of rice for my starch I eat potatoes.
I usually try to get a salad a day with Romaine lettuce.

I also tried ground flaxseeds in my smoothies until I developed diverticulitis. The flaxseeds are not good if you are prone to anything like that.

I hope this helps somewhat.

I'm new to this group. I too have trouble getting fiber and being on a GF diet which I just started. I do eat a lot o veggies and fruit but still need more. If I eat Kale my fiber count really goes up. But I get tired of eating it.

Make each day count.

I eat vegetables, lots of vegetables. I only occasionally cook them.

All good suggestions and that's what I do too. You have to grind flax seeds to get any benefit from them. I also limit how much gluten-free bread that I eat and try to get most of my calories from beans, fruits and veggies.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I grind organic brown flax seeds in a coffee grinder, then add a tbsp or two to smoothies, on top of cereal, to bread and muffins.

does anyone else struggle with getting enough fiber? What are some things that you have found to keep it up?
