Someone should start a thread about fiber, fiber, fiber...

I have been to see the gastroenterologist recently and aside from the colonosocopy he also recommends I loose some weight and get more fiber.  And to make sure I get soluble fiber as well as insoluble fiber, he goes so far as to recommend more fruit and beans (soluble) as well as psyllium fiber, i.e. Metamucil.  A quick scan of this board says this may not be a good idea but citrucel (with methyl-cellulose fiber) may also work.  I happen to love pinto beans and brown rice with tomatoes but when I indulge, my gut feels irritated slightly.  Currently taking one scoop of citrucell nightly.

Anyway I live near a health food market and they sell almost any type of fiber known to man.  So what is the best choice?

Did you have diverticulosis?

Too much fiber is not really such a good idea-- and food is the best source stick to your BTD portions and you will get plenty of fiber

Hi,

You should be able to get your fiber from food sources. Some examples from WebMD:
Quoted Text

Soluble vs. Insoluble Fiber

Soluble fiber dissolves in water. Insoluble fiber does not. To some degree these differences determine how each fiber functions in the body and benefits your health.

Soluble fibers attract water and form a gel, which slows down digestion. Soluble fiber delays the emptying of your stomach and makes you feel full, which helps control weight. Slower stomach emptying may also affect blood sugar levels and have a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity, which may help control diabetes. Soluble fibers can also help lower LDL (“bad”) blood cholesterol by interfering with the absorption of dietary cholesterol.
Sources of soluble fiber: oatmeal, oat cereal, lentils, apples, oranges, pears, oat bran, strawberries, nuts, flaxseeds, beans, dried peas, blueberries, psyllium, cucumbers, celery, and carrots.

Insoluble fibers are considered gut-healthy fiber because they have a laxative effect and add bulk to the diet, helping prevent constipation. These fibers do not dissolve in water, so they pass through the gastrointestinal tract relatively intact, and speed up the passage of food and waste through your gut. Insoluble fibers are mainly found in whole grains and vegetables.
Sources of insoluble fiber: whole wheat, whole grains, wheat bran, corn bran, seeds, nuts, barley, couscous, brown rice, bulgur, zucchini, celery, broccoli, cabbage, onions, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, green beans, dark leafy vegetables, raisins, grapes, fruit, and root vegetable skins.

Simple enough, now all I have to do is bring home the bacon, cook it and eat my own cooking...

Fiber, or fibre as we like to call it across the pond, in terms of grains is not all it's cracked up to be.

As an "O" psyllium is not recommended anyway. get off the grain, eat more veg eat right for your type and you well see very positive results. I did.
