I took in 52 grams of fiber yesterday emoticon

I think the 2.5 cups of gazpacho I had for dinner did the trick!

You can do this, Tim! (Did you sign up to have your grams of fiber tracked on our team goal?) As you see, my last post on this thread was back in April; so I'm starting over myself.

So far this week I have consumed 69 grams of fiber (38 grams on Sunday and 31 grams on Monday) This is a trend that I hope to keep up because I feel so much better, and my body works better, when I do. emoticon

Smack my hand! I haven't been tracking ANYTHING for 2 weeks. I'm going to start though, and yes, I'm going to take a closer count on my fiber as well.

THIS IS WHAT WE NEED:

AGE 50 and YOUNGER AGE 51+

MEN 38grams 30gr

WOMEN 25grams 21grams


THIS HOW WE GET IT:
Check out this list of high fiber foods. Just 1-2 changes in your daily habits can really increase your fiber intake. Remember to increase fiber slowly over time, allowing your body to adjust, and drink more fluid, especially water. Fiber acts like a sponge. It will absorb the water, adding bulk to your stool, making it softer and easier to eliminate from the body.

7 grams or more of FIBER
All Bran Cereal 1/3 cup
Fiber One Cereal 1/2 cup
Butter beans 1/2 cup
Green northern beans 1/2 cup
Kidney beans 1/2cup
Navy beans 1/2 cup

5-6 grams of FIBER
Raisin Bran Cereal 3/4 cup
Bran Flakes 3/4 cup
Brussels sprouts 1/2 cup
Turnips 1/2 cup
Black beans 1/2 cup
Lentils 1/2 cup
Pinto beans 1/2 cup

2-4 grams of FIBER
Grits 1 cup
Oatmeal 3/4 cup
Popcorn 3 cups
Pumpernickel bread 1 slice
Rye bread 1 slice
Apple 1
Apricots 4
Orange 1
Pears 1/2 large
Plums 2
Prunes, dried 4
Strawberries 1 cup
Broccoli 1/2 cup
Carrots 1
Green beans 1/2 cup
Lima beans 1/2 cup

There are some other articles as well. I just typed fiber into the Sparkpeople SEARCH box at the top of the page. Check it out!
