Nimm has some great suggestions. I love fiber one cereal! Be careful though, you can get bound up.

We also use cabbage a lot because of our time in Weight Watchers and the cabbage soup. As you migrate to healthier foods your fiber is sure to go up, at least if you incorporate fruits and veggies like most of us do.

Fiber is the latest marketing deal too, kind of like low fat was back in the day. I do seek it out, but I realize it is being pushed on us pretty hard by the "corporations".

I already eat healthy foods, generally speaking. I need fiber for cholesterol control. Family genetics thing. I just have a hard time getting enough fiber, especially on a lower calorie diet for weight loss. Makes it difficult. But, I had forgotten about lentils. Those things have a ton of fiber in them.

Veggies and then more veggies. I often eat 50 gm of fiber a day b/c of all the veggies.
Occasionally I'll have a high fiber tortilla that has 12 gm of fiber

Two words, fiber gummies, they're the f##king easiest way to get soluble fiber.

Add apples, pears, and berries to the lists above.

Actually, here's the Mayo Clinic's list of high-fiber foods:

I recently tried flaxseed. The outcome was immediately positive (if you know what I mean...)

Muffin in a Minute (MIM)
Number of Servings: 1

1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)
1 packet sweetener
1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
Small pinch salt
1 large egg (0.6 net carbs) or 2 egg whites
1 teaspoon oil
Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.


Then add the egg and the oil. Mix.

Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, enjoy.
I’ve been having this every morning for breakfast with my eggs, a plain one toasted stove top. I’m not tired of it yet, it’s pretty tasty. I got the recipe originally from the Atkins website, I don't know if this is exactly the same. Google muffin in a minute for myriad variation.
I like to use Bob’s red mill organic golden flax meal, but any will do, make sure it’s not old (rancid).

The shape of this can be changed by making it in a bowl.

It can be toasted stove top once it's cooked.

The cinnamon can be omitted or replaced. I would imagine that any sweetener could be used.
Plain- omit cinnamon and use very small amount sweetener.
You can add fruit or make it savory with herbs and garlic salt or cheese, and just a little sweetener

Some people count the flax as a carb/fiber wash.

I take Benefiber, the kind that mixes clear in water. I drink a lot of water anyways so it's a plus that I can sneak in some extra fiber too.
