    Best Fiber Foods

    Shop Now
    Before anyone preaches at me, I want to say that I DO eat lots of veggies.

    That being said, anyone have suggestions of foods that are ESPECIALLY high in fiber, low in other carbs/sugar? I eat plenty of the standard leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower etc., just looking for alternatives.

    Why do you think you need more fiber?

    I don't get it and also I don't understand why do you need more fiber? Fiber is for herbivores, not humans...
    Define "high" and "good stuff"

    i wouldnt go to any extent to ADD fiber to your day. a lowr fiber consumption is linked with less colon cancer. ifyu eat veggies now you have no reason to add more

    -high, ideally would be 100% carbs as fiber. That does not occur naturally so off the top of my head, around 50% is pretty high. Fiber also happens to help with satiety and bowel movements. Your statement about fiber being for herbivores sounds a little silly. For one, we are not pure carnivores. Secondly, even complete carnivores such as dogs consume fiber (ever seen a dog eat grass?)

    -I'm not looking to supplement, just consume some veggies that are a little higher in fiber. I have no idea what study you are talking about, but there are plenty of studies showing the benefits of consuming 30g of fiber per day. I'm not looking to do anything extreme, and the term "linked" kinda screams that there isn't even a hypothetical explanation of why that may be true, much less a proven one. Confounding variables are everywhere in such "studies".

    If you need to get things um... moving, try adding more fat.

    Samuel, you got me wrong. And not only me.

    My remark regarding the herbivores wasn't meant to insult you.
    My point is that we eat mainly to feed ourselves not mainly to have colon movements. Colon movement is something that is related to throwing things out, that we dont need and cannot digest. Herbivores do!

    Like ordering an item because you think the box in which is packed will fit well in the trash can.
    My advice is: forget the Marketing BS regarding the fiber and focus more on the things you need!

    Eat those veggies and few fruits you do, those have enough!
