What are some really high fiber foods

that I can eat to help me go to the bathroom? I exercise daily and drink nothing but water all day long (except for my morning coffee). I eat very healthy, but I have trouble going to the bathroom regularly.

  • First, drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water a day. Avoid animal products, simple grains like white flour and white rice, added/processed sugars. Build your meals around fruits and vegetables (7-8 servings a day, in at least three different colors) whole grains (5-6 servings a day) and legumes (at least two servings a day).

    Send me a message offlist if you would like recipe or meal ideas.

  • Warmed prunes, mini wheats or fiber cereal with warm milk, warmed fruits with granola topping (cobblers). Eating the foods that give you the roughage and helps move things along need to be warm in order to not shock your system and paralyze it until your body heats it up. You want your system to begin working on those foods right away and eating them warmed does just that.
