    Looking at the nutrition of some of the vegetables I’ve been eating a lot (green beans, salad stuff, broccoli etc), I was a bit disappointed to see they’re all below 5% fibre. “High-fibre” broccoli has just 3g per 100g! And that’s raw (cooking vegetables can break down their fibre)! I’d have to eat a kilogram of these vegetables to get the amount of fibre I need. It’s not surprising my bowels have been sluggish.

    What are people’s top fibre sources? Is it worth supplementing anything? I have green vegetables with every meal and even as snacks, but I doubt I’m getting near 25-30g of fibre each day. Maybe I should try those hulled hemp seeds I saw.

    I experienced the same thing with constipation and bloating.
    I think it is all part of the process and new diet, less fiber etc.

    A nutritionist I saw told me to take more vitamin C. I’m currently taking 2,000 mgs a day.
    Swedish bitters after meals seem to help also.
    I wake up every morning and drink a large glass of warm lemon water.

    Some days are worse than others.

    My first week I didn’t have bowel movement at all and was incredibly scared.
    There are many many people who will tell you colonics are bad for candida sufferers because it wipes out the good bacteria but I became more regular after getting a colonic. It’s a choice you have to make.
    Everyone is different.

    I’m hoping that once I introduce a non-glutenous grain my body will become even more regular. Oat bran is great for digestion. I’ll let you know how that goes as that is for next week.

    The positive aspect of vegetable fiber is the quality; it’s the perfect food source for the beneficial bacteria.

    But fiber is one of the reasons that oat bran, rice bran, coconut flour, millet and buckwheat are on the allowed foods list after two weeks on the diet.

    1 cup of oat bran contains 10.61 grams of fiber
    1 cup of brown rice bran contains 22.01 grams
    1 cup of buckwheat contains 17 grams
    1 cup of coconut flour contains 8-10 grams
    1 cup of raw millet contains 17 grams
