    Hey guys,

    Well for the last two months I have been eating better and got back into lifting weights. I have been lifting since I was a sophmore in hs. But when I started college I slowly got away from eating right and lifting. Over the last two years prior to the two months when I started lifting and eating right I was eating fast food everyday, and not working out. But I'm two months into it and feel much better. This forum has been great in helping in eating and lifting.:bigthumb:

    BUt anyways to my question. My sister's doctor told her she needs more fiber. Since I started eating better, she asked me what foods have good/high amounts of fiber. I told her oatmeal, beans, and whole wheat bread. She doesn't like oatmeal or beans.

    What other foods have fiber guys??

    You can get some fairly high-fiber cereals. Maybe even suggest a psylum supplement.

    Flaxmeal can be a nice way to get some fiber.

    Maybe suggest a shake to her..I don't paticularly like oats either, but I toss em in my morning shake and it's fine. Oats, milk, chocolate whey powder, and a banana. Sometimes peanut butter too. Lots of fiber and other good stuff. And it tastes great once you adjust the amounts of everything to your liking.
