I'll admit, I've been packing up my house it seems like forever, so tracking has flown out the window. I'd say I'm probably way below. Bleh. Next month will be better.

Ish.. I'm nowhere close to my range of 25 - 35. Today was better with a snack of a high fiber cereal. Guess it's time to bring back the Kashi bars for one of my snacks.

Thanks for reminding us about how important fiber is. The biggest thing that helps me get the fiber in is a high-fiber cereal every morning. I'm partial to the Uncle Sam cereal-it's pretty cheap, not full of weird chemicals, and also has flaxseed. Also, I buy the low-carb tortillas for wraps, as they have more fiber than the whole grain ones (go figure). Here are my totals for August, so far:
8/1-26
8/2-28
8/3-39
8/4-31
8/5-32

Proving that small changes make a difference. I used to struggle to get enough fiber, now it's fairly easy, because of small choices.

Great timing Adlins! I had been on track until the month started and I hadn't noticed. It sure is difficult to learn to balance every little thing. You would think we would all be thin from all this extra thinking we have to do.

Yes, posting here will be fine. I'll see if I can't figure out to make it a goal, but that means tracking it elsewhere as well. So, here for now.

Great idea, I thought I was good at tracking fiber, but boy was I wrong! I just added Fiber as a new nutrient to track and realized I did great sometimes, but there were several days I fell short. I've had health issues in the past due to a lack of fiber so I thought that I became much more conscientious of it, but tracking it though the site will give me the accuracy I need.

This challenge is perfect timing for me. This week's assignment from my dietician is to increase fiber.

Good idea, count me in. I've been trying to get more fiber in my diet, so this will be a good challenge for me.

Hello everyone. I think the protein challenge went well. For this month, let's focus on Fiber. I was looking at my tracker for today (granted no dinner yet) and am woefully short of my recommended fiber. A diet high in fiber will help you stay full longer, among other benefits.

This month's challenge is to hit your fiber range at least 4 times a week, being careful not to go over (see article below).

This is an item you have to add. Once added it shows up at the bottom of the Nutrition tracker page. To add it (if you haven't already done so), click on "Change Nutrition Goals" next to the word Nutrition at the top of your Nutrition tracker. Scroll down a little ways and click on "Add another nutrient to track." Select "Fiber" from the drop down. It will give you your recommended range.

Some fiber info:
