Thanks for the info. I always need more fiber.
Hope is here-Perfection isn't
Thanks Cindy!! I have been trying to get my 25 grams of fiber. This helps...and lots of water. Eblooming
Also, Oroweat has a bread out with 6 grams of fiber per slice...I am trying it.

I eat a lot of those foods, but my daily intake still usually only gets to 25-30 grams a day...
This is a great list Cindy...I moved it up so folks can see it better. Thanks for posting it.

It's foolish to ask God to direct your steps, if you aren't willing to move your feet.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!
Thanks for the list.

Thanks for the list! Some are foods I would/could never eat (I HATE lima beans!) but there were some great interesting choices I hadn't thought about before! (like figs)

I almost break my fiber bank every day! I average about 40 grams.
It seems to be everywhere nowadays! I love the list, it includes some of my favorite foods. =)
MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs
5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!
If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!
FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.
The Top Twenty Fiber Foods
This list can serve as a general guide. For more specific calorie and
fiber content of particular foods, to estimate your daily and weekly
quotas, refer to the alphabetical chart that follows:
1. Dried beans, peas, and other legumes
This includes baked beans, kidney beans, split peas, dried limas,
garbanzos, pinto beans and black beans.
2. Bran cereals
Topping this list are Bran Buds and All-Bran, but 100% Bran, Raisin
Bran, Most and Cracklin' Bran are also excellent sources.
3. Fresh or frozen lima beans, both Fordhook and baby limas
4. Fresh or frozen green peas
5. Dried fruit, topped by figs, apricots and dates
6. Raspberries, blackberries and strawberries
7. Sweet corn, whether on the cob or cut off in kernels
8. Whole-wheat and other whole-grain cereal products.
Rye, oats, buckwheat and stone-ground cornmeal are all high in fiber.
Bread, pastas, pizzas, pancakes and muffins made with whole-grain flours.
9. Broccoli-very high in fiber!
10. Baked potato with the skin
(The skin when crisp is the best part for fiber.) Mashed and boiled
potatoes are good, too-but not french fries, which contain a high
percentage of fat.
11. Green snap beans, pole beans, and broad beans
(These are packaged frozen as Italian beans, in Europe they are known
as haricot or french beans.)
12. Plums, pears, and apples
The skin is edible, and are all high in pectin.
13. Raisins and prunes
Not as high on the list as other dried fruits (see #5) but very valuable.
Including spinach, beet greens, kale, collards, swiss chard and turnip
Especially almonds, Brazil nuts, peanuts, and walnuts (Consume these
sparingly, because of their high fat content.).
(dried or fresh-but both are high in fat content).
20. Brussels sprouts
When in doubt, show up early. Think less. Feel more. Ask once. Give thanks often. Expect the best. Appreciate everything. Never give up. Make it fun. Lead. Invent. Regroup. Wink. Chill. Smile. And live as if your success was inevitable, and so it shall be.
I CHOOSE ME!
