oooh I forgot about refried beans. Two small corn tortillas are only 110 calories and have 3 grams of fiber and a little protein and calcium too. I like to make little bean tacos with beans, tortillas and a slice of 2% kraft singles. The fiber is filling and the protein gives me energy.

You guys already mentioned almost all of my favorites! Two more suggestions - refried beans (fat free of course) and eat the peeling when you can!

I was having the same problem...
I started eating All Bran extra fiber cereal with a fruit in it (strawberry or blueberries, both great and high in fiber) I also try and make sure to add a pear or 3 prunes to my day and I will have blueberries or blackberries on as a midmorning snack and I add 10 almonds (another great source of natrual fiber), a lot of food has fiber, but this breakfast gives me about 15 grams of fiber if I follow what the box says but I have 3/4 cup of the cereal instead of the 1/2 cup they suggest so I am getting about 15-18 grams of fiber plus whatever I eat throughout the day that has 3 grams here or 2 grams there.
Hope that gives you ideas.

That's what I had for breakfast, Kashi GoLean Crunch (the plain kind, though)! At our Sam's Club, you can buy a big box of that (two individual bags inside) for a really reasonable price. Target has both flavors on sale this week, though, at least where I live.

I recently tried the Kashi GOLean Crunch with Honey almond flax. It has 8 gm of fiber and 9 gm of protein per serving and only 200 calories before adding milk. If I do toast, Healthy Life with flaxseed, it has an additional 5 gm of fiber for two slices and only 40 calories per slice. I do pretty good for the day!!

All-Bran bars (VERY GOOD!) are an excellent source of fibre, and so easy to throw in your purse.

Smart Pop popcorn also has a lot of fibre.

Whole-grain anything, Whole-wheat pasta....

Veggies and fruits are a good way to get the fibre in too.

Just keep label reading and you'll find tons of foods in no time.

I've been loving baby fuji apples this year. I buy a bunch and bring them with me in the car, to work, where ever I go.

I usually eat cereal in the morning but it takes a lot of servings to get up into the 20's for fiber! I also keep apples on hand. I was really surprised at how little fiber carrots have, they are another favorite snack of mine. The english muffins I'll have to look for when I get a chance, those would really help.

I agree - reading labels is key. I love when I find something like these muffins and the peanut butter that I can have without feeling guilty - and without making me feel like I am dieting! Especially excited about the fiber.

I'll second the Thomas' Light English Muffins, I have them for breakfast all the time. There are also a lot of high fiber cereals out there. I just found some toasted chips called Garden Harvest that are very yummy and have 3 grams of fiber. I'm a real label reader and once I started looking it wasn't too hard to find food that as high in fiber

Thomas makes a great English muffin - Thomas Multi-grain Light. They are 8 grams of fiber and only 100 calories. It is a great way to start your morning. I do better on fiber on days I start with one of those. Put a little Jif reduced fat peanut butter, and you have one tasty breakfast that really keeps you going - and the peanut butter helps with the protein.

Thanks for pointing another team member to the resources here on SparkPeople. There are at least a couple of articles/resources on fiber under HEALTHY LIFESTYLE then click NUTRITION.

FiberOne cereals, Kashi products and whole grains have lots of fiber. I usually start with one of those for breakfast. Getting those fruit and veggie servings in also helps toward reaching that daily fiber goal. It's something I watch pretty closely because I have IBS. If I don't get enough fiber, my body lets me know, so by now, it's one of my healthy habits.

But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your Mercy,
Because of Your Truth.

Is anyone having trouble getting enough fiber each day? I'm really having a hard time with it, I eat nowhere near the suggested amounts. I really don't like buying fiber supplements, they are so expensive!
