@MOOMSHINE I'm pre-diabetic and I watch my carbs as well, and I don't find it hard to reach my fiber goal. See, a tablespoon of flaxseed with every meal for example makes for almost half the daily requirement. I also eat high fiber low GI veggies like grape leaves (a vitamin A powerhouse - 3 cups for 6 carbs 70% of which is fiber), artichokes, brussels sprouts... etc. Essentially anything that has 30% or more of its carbs in form of fiber. I average about 30-40 grams of fiber a day which, though raises the number of carbs doesn't actually affect net carbs all that much. I experimented and found that it's the net carbs number, not the total carbs number that affects my blood sugar. But then again, your body might not respond to things the way mine does.
