Besides high fiber fruits (esp. pears, apples, oranges), vegies (esp. brocolli, brussel sprouts, green beans), legumes (esp. kidney, black, lentils), I add rice bran to hot cereals, soups, spaghetti sauce or whatever can be thickened. Also check the fiber content of whatever gluten-free breads you buy. Look for at least 3 grams of fiber per slice.

Lentils - ~16g/cup

Black beans and pinto beans - ~15g/cup

Kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and lima beans - ~13g/cup

Green peas - ~8g/cup

Blackberries ` ~7g/cup

Pumpkin - ~7g/cup

Broccoli - ~5g/cup

Pears - ~5g/each

Sugar snap/snow peas - ~5g/cup

Sweet Potato - ~5g/each

Carrots - ~5g/cup

And that's without touching a single gluten free grain.

I've incorporated flax into my diet--lots of good fiber and a great source of omega 3's.

I think those may be chia seeds.

You have a whole new life - no need to follow the rules of eating imposed by anyone else. Fiber, and in fact all of your nutrition, can come from natural whole foods. No need to stay stuck in the mindset of 'fortified food'.

Did you have constipation as one of your gluten intolerance symptoms? If so, did the constipation decrease after you went gluten free? If not, constipation could also be caused by (1) other food allergies influencing constipation; (2) bacterial dysbiosis (low good bacteria which promotes bowel motility; or (3) opportunistic or pathogenic bacteria, parasites or even candida.

I had chronic constipation before I was diagnosed with celiac disease and began to abstain from gluten. I ate loads of fiber, drank lots of liquids and even took regular magnesium and vitamin C, which helped a little. Then I was diagnosed with and began to abstain from 6 additional food allergies. Abstaining from all those foods also helped a little, but not enough to be totally 'regular'. However, diagnoses and treatment for 4 bacteria, one parasite and candida AND taking mucho probiotics during and after treatment FINALLY resolved my life long constipation problem. I still eat lots of fiber, because I feel fuller sooner and stay unhungry longer, when I eat high fiber foods, but I'm not totally dependent on a high fiber diet for regularity, like I was before I eliminated all my other gut problems.

Sue,

How did you treat your bacteria and parasites? I had (or still have) bad bacteria. I tried berberine and licorice to treat it and had severe reactions to both.

My doctor said to increase my probiotics to have enough good bacteria to overcome the bad. A couple months after that, I tested positive for candida. I figured after taking such a high dose of probiotics, that I wouldn't have candida. How did you get rid of the candida and how long did that take?. I am taking garlic every day, eating no sweeteners or dairy besides butter.

I have been reading up on candida and it is advised to go off all grains, peanuts, starchy vegetables and fruits. If I do that, I really won't have enough left to eat to maintain my weight. I need to gain weight and not lose any more.

A friend of mine said she got rid of candida while eating grains, fruits and starchy vegetables.

As far as I know, there is no science behind giving up all those foods to get rid of candida and I personally don't believe in that. Take the probiotics and garlic, but if your candida is bad enough the only way to get rid of it is antifungal medicines. You cannot severly limit your diet that much when you are healing from celiac.

This is very encouraging. My test indicated that I had mild candida albicans. I'm hoping that it was mild that I am ridding myself of it. I don't know if it is causing any of my symptoms. I did read that it can cause insomnia which is still a problem for me.

I don't know how big a problem candida is really. But I have read that caprylic acid is supposed to help with it and it is found in coconut. You can also buy caprylic acid pills to take.
