Anyone have good ideas on how to replace the fiber I used to get in all of my whole grain breads and such? I have increased my salad intake...and cook brown rice instead of white...thinking it's better. But, forgive my frankness, need to go back to being "regular" (although at this point, not sure what that should be! I've been on such a roller coaster D and constipation for so long now). Ideas? Here's an idea of what I'm eating on a daily basis right now:

Breakfast:
either a Van's Buckwheat waffle or Bob's Red Mill hot cereal
piece of fruit (banana, plum, etc)

Lunch:
salad with dark leafy greens, tomatoes, carrots, usually lite balsamic vinagrette dressing and a little turkey breast deli meat and cheese
fruit (cherries, grapes, plum, etc)

Snacks:
peanuts, or a few Nut Thins crackers

Dinner:
varies. Usually chicken, with rice, and salad or veggies. Sometimes also gluten-free pasta with spaghetti sauce.

Dessert:
reduced fat slow churned Dreyers ice cream

You may not be getting enough fat! That can be a problem. Low fat diets are very unhealthy and actually cause heart attacks, rather than prevent them. You need to avoid trans fats. Any hydrogenated fats are terrible. Coconut oil (cold pressed) is great. Animal fat is HEALTHY for you, and your body needs it (not in huge amounts, of course).

Your fiber intake sounds fine. Too much fiber will mess up your bowels, too. Do you drink enough plain water?

I just bought some rice bran to put in Carol Fenster's Multigrain bread. Still working on the last bread so it'll be a day or two before I try it, but I'll let you know if it's good! It's supposed to be very high in fiber.

Also, dried fruit is very good.

All on a summer's day.

And took them clean away.

I agree with Ursula. It looks like you're getting lots of fiber. Maybe for added healthy fats, you could use pure olive oil on your salad with a little bit of balsamic and maybe add some peanut or almond butter to your fruit or waffles in the morning. Coconut oil is great too. I always feel better (and my weight stays down) when I add enough healthy fats to my diet.

Protein with my breakfast also helps my body work properly for the rest of the day.

Oh - but for fiber contents of foods www.whfoods.com is a great website.

Good point, I didn't really think about fat. My body is probably freaking out because since I went gluten-free, I also cut a great deal of fat out of my diet. (less fast food=healthier eating!!!) I do get some fat in my diet, I eat peanuts quite a bit, and do occasionnally splurge for an order of french fries, and eat some dark chocolate and/or ice cream. I also eat both white and dark meat chicken, actually, I LOVE to bake a whole chicken about once a week. (I have it down to an art) I go about 50/50 on white and dark meat, but sinfully, I enjoy the perfectly crispy skin....(ew, I know, to some, but it's soooo good I can't help it!) But regardless, my body may be getting used to not eating out all the time. Previously I was enjoying more hamburgers and fried everything when home with my husband, and it doesn't quite know what to do!

I do definitely drink enough water. You can't NOT drink water and survive here in Texas! (I'm in Dallas and today's high is 102) In fact, I make it a point to take my daily multivitamin because I'm afraid I dilute minerals with how much I drink. (I drink coffee in the mornings, and maybe a diet coke a day as well) I just take meds that make my mouth so dry all the time, that water helps. I would imagine that I drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day, and at least 8 20 oz glasses of water, sometimes more.

A handful or two of almonds every day as an afternoon snack!!! That's what helps me, and I eat very similar to your diet. Nuts are a great source of fber and protien!!!

speaking of beans (yum) anyone know a good replacement for a good ol' bean burrito? I'm thinking refried beans and corn tortillas just won't do the trick, but I might be surprised. I love refried beans (even the fat free kind, which can't REALLY be refried).

Of course, the ones with fat give you a little fat added back to your diet!

I use corn tortillas for lots of things ... I buy the ones in the Mexican dept. of Kroger and they are soft rather than the kind that break easily.
