    Today I found very interesting article about recommended daily allowance of fibre...

    Always thought that my intake was too low however having checked my menu against this was the wrong way of thinking...

    It also revealed the main reason of stomach problems....for example having a wholemeal pasta with broccoli for tea I was already above 'the limit' so should have increased the water intake straight away which for most days I did not...


    The Dietary Guidelines recommends that adults over 18 years old consume between 25g and 35g of fiber daily. To ensure high intake, make sure that each serving provides you with at least 5g of fiber per serving.

    That's really interesting, Thankyou! They should add scanbran, that's 4g In ONE slice!
    It's a shame avocado is synned, that's got a lot more fibre in than I thought.
