Angry fibre anyone?

hi
i'd really like to go for 30-50 grams of carbs a day
but after trying for just a few days
I realize I need more
to be able to work in enough fibre
without having to resort to powders or special drinks
or pills
does anyone have any suggestions?

Fibre?

I think you'll be surprised how little that matters when you switch to a proper high fat diet. Constipation is a word that doesn't need to be in my vocabulary these days Not sure what the French word for it is.

I've never had any trouble getting enough fiber on less than 30g carbs per day . . . we eat tons of avocado, which has very high fiber and is about the perfect diabetes food because it's high fat too; dark leafy greens are a large part of our meals too. Because we use celery as a vehicle for cream cheese and peanut butter, we can hardly keep celery in the house. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts & cabbage are all great fiber-providing low-carb vegetables. Which carby foods were you thinking you'd need to add? Fiber does not need to be carby.

I'm used to being regular with a can of chili
a day
around 39-45 carbs in the ones I can buy
but then I have no room for veggie or nut carbs

So it's the fiber in the beans, y'think? Or the 'heat' in the chiles?

If you can describe for us any better, there may be others here who know more about this than I. If beans work, then other vegetable fiber should work as well. We also have Optimists crackers which are made with psyllium - the ingredient in many fiber products - and these crackers top everything any of us have ever found for crackers! They're simply incredibly delicious!

You'd be surprised at how little fiber you actually need on LCHF. The volume of our food is very dense, but very low. You may not have a bm everyday, and it shouldn't cause problems because our food is not bulky. High carb foods tend to be bulky and you get blocked up very easily. On LCHF, your body actually uses much of the food you eat, so there is less waste. Your intestines may welcome the break!

I find that 1-2 Tablespoons of coconut oil a day works wonders - sort of lubricates, if you know what I mean - and softens. Great stuff.

Dittos on the Optimist crackers.
