High Fiber Tip
Eating bran cereal in the morning is often the easiest way to obtain fiber. All-Bran, 100 percent Bran, Bran Buds, oat bran, oatmeal, and Raisin Bran are some of the high fiber cereals presently available. Bran can cause rumbling intestinal gas and even some mild cramping, so it should be eaten in small amounts at first. The amount can be increased as the body gets used to it.
