    I get most of my fiber from vegetables and beans.

    Fiber One soft cookies are good.

    Fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains (i.e. oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa, etc) are all great sources of fiber. Agree with going slow since too much at one time can cause gas/bloating, abdominal discomfort and sometimes constipation (temporary and if not drinking enough fluids). Using supplements are only going to net you an extra 3-5 grams per serving and are not as beneficial as whole food sources.

    Vitafusion Fiber Gummies. 1 have 10 calories, 7 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber.

    Chia seeds and flax seeds - lots of ways to add them to what you are already eating. But I definitely agree with the advice about gradually building up to a good high intake, you have to train your body :)

    Yeah, vegetables, beans, some berries, avocados, plus some from grains and nuts/seeds.

    Literally was logging my tablespoon of Nature's Path SmartBran™ Cereal when I saw this. A little goes a long way, it's slightly sweet without blowing up your daily sugar limit and you can have it as cereal or toppings for just about anything. Other than that, as many have said: start low and go slow. Allow yourself at least two weeks to get to your daily goal.

    Semi dried prunes on top of porridge is a lush fibre and carb food. My pre-ride go to.

    pretty much all plant-based whole foods (i.e., not oil expressed from plants, or protein isolates derived from plants, or refined flours and sugars from plants, etc.).

    I try and eat 25-30 grams of fiber per day for digestive health (per doctor's recommendation). For a big boost I eat Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Wraps/Tortillas. They have a whopping 15 grams of fiber with only 70 cal./18 carbs per tortilla (and they are big!). They are very filling and make a good snack. I supplement my daily intake with beans, grains, berries (especially raspberries) and fibrous vegetables such as asparagus. I can usually obtain my fiber goal on a 1200 cal. diet.

    Fiber One cereal or All Bran are my go to sources...add blueberries and 1% milk and it's tasty too.

    I’ve been eating 647 bread by Schmidt’s. It’s got 7 grams of fiber per slice and only 40 cals. Doesn’t taste like much but as a carrier for peanut butter or avocado it’s not bad. Two slices at breakfast bring me almost halfway to fiber goal.
    Also, oikos triple zero Greek yogurt has seven grams fiber from chicory root extract and 15 G protein.

    Was going to say this exact thing!

    I’ll also add - dried fruit.
  • OnedaywriterOnedaywriter Posts: 61Member Member Posts: 61Member Member
    Ouch. Made a big mistake!! Oikos triple zero only has 3 grams of fiber!!!

    I just realized I had a typo in my previous post.
    2 gummies, not 1 is the serving size. Perhaps that’s why someone hit the disagree button 🤷🏻‍♀️

    The gummies give me...gastric discomfort.
