    Morning all,

    Other than something like bran flakes I have no idea what food is a good source of fibre?

    Could anyone help me out here? Is there a supplement you can take?

    Thanks x

    Fibre plus bars contain 20% of your daily requirement of fibre and are yummy! Milk chocolate one is 5.5 syns and dark chocolate one is 6 syns or both flavours can be used as a HEXB.

    Things like fruit, vegetables, potatoes with skins, seeds, oats, wholemeal pasta and brown rice all contain fibre.

    Hope this helps :)

    Scan Bran!

    Some love it, some hate it, but it is indisputable for getting the fibre into your diet!

    Kellogs fibre plus bars are available in supermarkets. Scan bran you can buy in Holland and Barret as well as at your meeting.

    I think you need to be looking at pulses and beans to increase fibre. A fibre plus bar has 20% of your daily fibre needs but beans and pulses can really increase it.

    Must say the new Scan Bran is much more pleasant tasting than they used to be.

    FYI Fibre Plus bars are buy one packet get one free at morrisons at the moment - I know this has been mentioned elsewhere but thought if you were going out to get some then you would appreciate the heads up, coz they arent cheap.

    Baked Beans, scan bran, all bran, kelloggs fibre plus bars,

    if you look in your SW book the B choices usually have F next to them if they are high in fibre - maybe that will give you some guidance too xxx i also think if the have two FF they are SUPER fibrus!!! xxx

    I would say avoid white carbs completely where possible and stick to wholewheat. Eating white carbs has absolutely no health benefits whatsoever.

    So switch from white pastas, rices, cous cous etc to the wholewheat variety. Leave skins on white potatoes (even when making slimming world chips) as well as sweet potatoes. Also as someone else mentioned, pulses and beans etc also have high a fibre value and of course the dreaded scan bran. lol

    I found this list of high fibre foods that you might find useful.
