Fruits, eaten not drank. Fruit juice from concentrate has almost no fibre at all.
Vegetable, especially the greens. Beans,legumes..

this page has a good list of foods with the fibre count

My Fast and easy with no guilt list...
CELERY
Green smoothies
Lettuce mix (dry)
apples
Almonds (15g)
Broccoli and cauliflower (steamed then refrigerated)
snow peas
Mandarins/oranges

All work as easy snacks that you can whip out of the fridge and munch on.

For meals: think vegan (then add meat if you wish). Start with a green base, add one or two other coloured vegetables, then add 1-2 serves of protein.
eg. zucchini spaghetti(zucchini sliced as thin as spaghetti) with tomato-and-pumpkin sauce with red lentils(or grilled chicken/fish). Delicious. easy. (especially if you cheat and buy the sauce).
or. finely chopped broccoli and cauliflower(replaces the rice, tastes better and like 1/10th the calories) with lentil curry. (curry's great, i make a heap and freeze it.)
or just do the easiest thing and make vegetable soup with celery as the main vegetable. (or chicken soup if that takes your fancy)

Notice that you don't really need grains for fiber?

lentils are cheap, and once you know how to use them, delicious!

Nuts and seeds such as almonds, macadamias, walnuts, pumpkin, flax, chia, sunflower etc. are little fiber powerhouses. Add to smoothies, salads, yogurt or oatmeal.

My usual breakfast is steel-cut oats with raspberries or blackberries, and often blueberries or strawberries as well. That means I start the day with 10+ grams of fiber in a delicious bowl of breakfast.

I like to eat nuts by themselves but I notice my mouth gets so sore and I mean real sore not just from crunching on the nuts. Does anyone else have that problem or know why I do? I do the same thing with the seeds. I love me some pumpkin seeds but it kills my mouth. Even the inner part of my lips get sore and raw.

Tree nuts include hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, pecans and any other nut that grows on a tree. Peanuts are not technically considered a nut, but rather a legume. Legumes also include peas, soy beans and lentils. If you're allergic to peanuts you may develop an allergic reaction to other legumes. During the allergic reaction, your immune system produces immunoglobulin E, or IgE antibodies that trigger the production of other chemicals in your body, such as histamine. Histamine causes inflammation in soft tissue that can result in a burning sensation.

It can get worse and you should be tested by a professional. You don't want to go into anaphylaxis by eating the wrong food.

You may have an allergy to certain nuts. I know walnuts do the same for me, so I limit them to 1 oz at a time/day. Other nuts and seeds are no problem (for me) so I use them to fulfill most of my good fats and fiber needs. Chia, Hemp, and ground flax are exceptionally nutritious and high in fiber. I mix them with nearly everything.
Avoiding the things that raise blood insulin and leptin levels works. Really!
