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.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
