If this is in the wrong place I am sorry, please move.

How do you all go about getting your daily intake of fibre, I have been eating a lot of fruits, but my stool is still very soft, almost diarhea.
Thanks.

well, i dont know your situation, and everyone is different- but i have issues with too much fructose and fructans. for me, personally i will have different bathroom experiences with different kinds of produce.
if i eat fruits & veggies high in fructose/fructans (google FODmap diet or Fructose Malabsorption)- than i sometimes get the "D".
ALTHO- some of those avoid fruits really made my bathroom experiences fantastic- like pears.

for me- i stick to a good amount of cooked veggies- broccoli, carrots, spinach, zucchini...
and ive noticed that eating some low fructose fruit & yogurt everyday helps.
i also really need fruit or veggies with every meal... if my meal only has meat & starch then it'll back me up.

are you accidentally getting glutened? or do u still consume dairy? or do u have a Fructose problem? these could be causing your "D".

putting the "fructose" issue aside: i personally believe the real fleshy fruits & veggies really make your bathroom issues a pleasant experience: bananas, mangos, avacado, etc.

I try to eat oatmeal every other day (if you can tolerate), I take my fiber gummies everyday, veggies with lunch and dinner. I also found this gluten free oat mix that has 9 grams of fiber per 1/4 cup so I mix this with yogurt.

Gluten Free going on 5 years and counting!

gluten-free is a life change and not a diet.

I thought I wasn't getting enough fibre even though I ate heaps of veges but it turned out to be because I was eating the wrong fruits and veges. I have problems with frutose, fructans and sorbitol malabsorption so I'm mostly following a low FODMAP diet. Cutting out onion made the biggest difference.

I saw a dietitian and she said my fibre intake was fine, but the symptoms from these malabsorption issues can make you think you aren't getting enough.

I have been on the FODMAP diet for a week and my bowels have really improved along with my symptoms. The medical professional that put me on the diet said that I won’t have to worry about them even though I have constipation usually. They were right.

I eat an avocado (sometimes half if I am eating too many calories) every day and a bag of popcorn. The avocado alone has 14g fiber in it.

I also found (with the help of this list) a high fiber gluten-free cereal similar to All Bran. Perky's? Something like that? It tastes OK, not great. Can't remember the fiber, maybe 8 or 9 grams?
