October 13, 2011 11:26am CST
do you know living on a diet rich in fibre canhelp you reap rich rewards. It reduces cholesterol,regulates blood, sugar, cancers and Obesity, checks constipation. An adult's reccommended daily intake of fibre is 25-30 gm. Suggest me fibre rich foods like flaxseeds, whole grain?bran etc!!!!!!

I´m on chemotherapy and this pays its toll on the digestive system. I need a special diet and lots of fiber. I got an oatmeal cookie recipe and changed it to suit my needs. I don´t put any nuts but bought a cereal that is only fiber. I crush it and use half oatmeal and half fiber. Instead of white sugar I either use brown sugar or sucrose. They are so good and crunchy that they disappear quickly from the can. All my family and friends have discovered where I keep them.

I am taking soya milk drink. It is powdered soya beans that i drink in the morning and for my afternoon snacks. I bought it from a herbal dealer and so far my blood sugar is now on normal level,and I am not constipated anymore. It's a powerful packed fiber food.

I think " sprouts is also a good source of fiber". That too having sprouts at morning time is very good for health.

I learned that psyllium husk is a rich source of fiber.It lowers your cholesterol levels and lowers your risk to heart disease.It can also alleviate constipation,irritable bowel syndrome,hemorrhoids,inflammatory bowel disease; and lowers blood sugar levels.However it is necessary to consume plenty of water if using psyllium husk,to prevent esophageal obstruction.It is not also recommended for people who have esophageal stricture,narrowing and obstruction in in the intestinal tract.

Yes, diet rich in fibre is good for health. But as in our (our=ourselves not other people) daily food we take very poor quantity of fibre, I am consuming food supplementary to meet the shortage. And I am happy to announce we are now better than before.

Any fruit, vegetable or whole grain (not refined, as in white flour) is high in fiber. The highest of all, though, are the pulses: Beans, peas and lentils. That's why these foods sometimes cause digestive distress, with gas, bloating and pain. Eating too much fiber can be disastrous, although temporarily!

i agree with you. oatmeal is good too, especially if you mix it with flaxseed. of course, fruits and veggies are high in fibre too.
