List of Fibre (or Fiber) foods

Choose more sources of fibre, especially soluable fibre foods. Here’s a list of some of the common fibre foods and it’s contents. My suggestion is that you review the current amount of fibre you are consuming in an average day, do this for a week to get you baseline. Once you have a good idea, start by adding one or two new sources of fibre or replace some of your existing low fibre foods. Aim for adding at least 5 more grams of fibre.
