Add more whole grains....

A healthful diet contains minimally processed foods like whole-grain bread, pasta, and cereal, along with vegetables, fruits, and legumes. These foods have what experts call a low glycemic index: Because they have more fiber than other carbohydrates, they are metabolized at slower rate, which in turn keeps blood sugar levels more stable and makes kids feel more satiated. Some children may reject denser grains at first, so try starting with whole-wheat blend pasta and with some light wheat breads.

Thank you very much, i appreciate that very much. It will be a great help for my love one, he is now undergoing chemo, and there are 2 more to go. So he needs to be well and healthy enough to go through another one again. I heard organic food helps a lot and some health supplements too. But i do not know which to get for him, mangosteens is also one of the health food mentioned too. Anyway, thanks for your help..

There are some illness and conditions when some fiber is not the best solution. Such is the case of older people that have diverticuli in ther intestines. They should check with their doctors before deciding to eat fiber.
