  • It's unfortunate that the author points out that there are no calories in fiber, but fails to mention that foods containing fibre do have plenty of calories, sugar, and carbs. I take fiber supplements, and they contain sugar and carbs as well. Let's all eat more Brussels Sprouts!

  • Fiber-1 Cereal has Aspertame so if you are avoiding this sweetener, use All Bran and add your own choice of sweetener (or none!) - 5/19/2016 9:07:00 AM
  • I try to avoid taking supplements when possible, because I'd rather eat the proper food to begin with. I wasn't getting near enough fiber as I should have been according to the nutrition tracker. I thought that changing that would be difficult, but really all it took was a few simple and inexpensive changes. Viola! - 4/11/2016 6:42:53 AM
  • Seems I am getting enough fiber without the aid of any supplements. If I do take a supplement I like organic Phylum husk or Fiber Wise. - 3/20/2016 11:39:13 AM
  • Fiber is not a subject I think about. I am a vegetarian and love beans and veggies and some fruit and things like popcorn. I am also as regular as can be. No problem there. - 3/7/2016 12:14:07 PM
  • Shoulda read this article yesterday..... I may need to modify a bit . . . . - 1/13/2016 8:35:04 PM

    I have been eating a paleo diet for over a year. Since I don't eat grains and legumes, I depend on vegetables and fruits to supply fiber. I often fall in the 15-20 gm./day range, but I am more "regular" than ever before, so I think it's enough. It's important to remember that one size does not fit all, and these are guidelines, not rules! And thanks to the person who mentioned avocados. They are a real superfood. - 12/31/2015 6:34:54 AM
  • Bloating, et al, seems to occur more easily as we get older; I wonder if our requirements for Fibre change as we get older, as well. Doesn't seem right to be bloated and gassy all the time. 8-/ - 10/24/2015 5:57:47 PM

    My GI doctor always says, "35 grams of fiber a day keeps me away!" LOL!! But I find it hard to get in at least the 35 daily grams of fiber she wants me to AND keep my calorie count between 1200 and 1300. Add to that the need for more protein and it becomes a real juggling act!! AND I find when I eat fewer carbs, my weight loss is better............JEEZ!! I LOVE beans, I eat LOTS of fiber-rich veggies and whole grains, take a fiber supplement, and it's STILL hard to keep it all------fiber, carbs, protein, and calories-----in balance. Who knew eating could be so complicated, huh??? LOL!! - 9/9/2015 9:02:16 AM
  • Just found out I need to lower my cholesterol, where do I purchase psyilium husk? - 9/5/2015 12:13:48 PM

    Hooray for Fiber! - 8/4/2015 12:21:30 PM
  • I work in more fiber where I can, but in cooking I have to be careful because my husband is on a low potassium diet, and many high fiber foods are high in potassium. So I cook with white rice and regular pasta. I use whole-wheat bread and he uses white. - 7/16/2015 9:52:13 AM
