I think my fat intake is about 40-50% of my diet. I eat a lot of eggs, fatty parts of meat, organ meats, use coconut oil and butter. There are days when fat is not appetizing and I tend to eat more protein.
I tend to get bloated and gassy for a few days after a lot of fibrous vegetables-- I'd like to be less bloated as well!
Also, another thing I've been doing lately to reduce fiber is to juice my vegetables. I have a cheapie juicer (Hamilton Beach, less than $30, I think, and it works pretty well, not too annoying to clean afterwards) and I've been juicing leafy greens like kale and dandelion along with carrots and celery and maybe an apple. I think this is a great solution to not have to cut out too many veggies, still get good nutrition from a broad array of foods, but have almost zero fiber to clog up the digestive tubes.
I'm also trying to drink bone broth now to help my guts heal - I got some stock bones from the farmers market yesterday, and I plan to keep my crockpot on perpetual simmer, and drink a cup or two everyday, just keep replenishing the water. My first cup today was soooooooooo fatty, I almost couldn't drink it. Better be doing some good down below!
The doctor (of course) gave me serious antibiotics (after all kinds of tests), said I was otherwise completely healthy and told me to up my fiber intake. I was asking here about high fiber veggies and, lucky for me, HillsideGina pointed me toward Fiber Menace. I haven't had a problem since.
