Where's The Fiber
0

8 posts in this topic

So I went yesterday and had my upper endoscopy and also a colonoscopy because I was still symptomatic. Of course results will be several weeks on the Celiac. But my doctor has told me if I do not increase the fiber in my diet I will probably end up with diverticulosis. Great, another dietary thing to worry about. I used to get plenty of fiber in my morning cereal and breads as well as fruit and vegtables. Now where do I get these from? Is it only from fruits and vegtables? Has anyone else had the same concerns? 25-30 grams of fiber a day from fruit and vegtables? That seems like so much when most fruits and vegtables I have looked up seem to have one or two grams in a medium piece of fruit.

Can anyone out there help me out. I want to take care of my body and keep from having more disorders.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions

Debbie <_<

Some things I often have that have a decent amount of fiber:

1 svng baby carrots (40cal) - 2g

1 small bell pepper (30cal) - 2g

1 cup cauliflower (25cal) - 2.5g

1/3 med onion (40cal) - 1.5g

1 small banana (90cal) - 2.5g

1 mango (135cal) - 3.5g

1 med pear (100cal) - 5g

1/2 cup blackberries (30cal) - 4g

1/2 cup kidney beans (110cal) - 8g

1/2 cup lentils (115cal) - 8g

Those particular 715 calories give you 39g of fiber.

The USDA Nutrient Database can help you find the fiber content of other foods as well.

I found these crackers at Whole Foods called Casabe Rainforest Crackers...

They are gluten-free and have 5g of fiber per serving (5 crackers)...

They taste like melba toast...

The website where you can find them is www.fortitudebrands.com

Also I have one or two LaraBars a day. They have around 5 or 6g of fiber per bar and are gluten-free, dairy free, & soy free......with no added sugar. They are very tasty! I get them at Whole Foods as well. The website for info is

www.larabar.com

Just a couple ideas!

I find the best source of fibre for me is split pea soup. That works better that anything, though carrots raw or cooked are good too.

I mix frozen berries with some protien, a little honey and milk in the morning for breakfast. It has a pretty good amount of fiber, and I make it into a kinda ice cream, though you can have it as a shake as well...

THanks to everyone who has offered advice. I will be looking for the crackers and the berrys with honey and milk sounds like a great breakfast. I checked out the USDA nutrition database. That is good information to have. Thanks to everyone. Its great to know if I need advice there are people willing to share.

I mix a teaspoon of ground flax into each meal. It works for me.

Dried apricots work wonders. Also prunes, plums, apples.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
