  • I too avoid all wheat and most grains, and I am as regular as can be.

    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.
  • 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-/

    It add flax meal in my shake everyday
  • I need lots of fiber due to the meds I take.......prunes are excellant source, eat as a knack
    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!!
  • Just found out I need to lower my cholesterol, where do I purchase psyilium husk?

    Hooray for Fiber!
  • 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.
  • Enjoyed this article!! But they didn't include my favorite on the list: Avocado! for a 75g serving at 7g of carb, you get 5 grams of fiber!
  • I needed to read this article to increase my fiber intake, thanks for the suggestions~
    Psyllium husk is the very best source of soluble fiber and has helped me drop my LDL (Low density Cholesterol) by 38%! Something I was told was impossible. A teaspoon on my muesli every morning and another sprinkled over anything that you can add it to - soup, spag bol, caserol;es etc.
  • Shameless self-plug alert: Let's hear it for *raspberries*! :)
    I add 2 TBSP ground flax meal to my morning oatmeal. I just mix it into the oatmeal after it's cooked. That adds 4 grams of fiber to my breakfast.
    These are but guidelines to general healthy people but for some with certain afflictions more fiber is required due to medication or diet restriction so I feel one really needs to research fiber as to what fits their specific diet needs - Example - some people with Kidneys Stone cannot digest brown rice , wheat flour - diverticula patients need to steer away from some barriers - guess this up to the individual - nice list though .
